China to Subsidize Green Vehicle Purchases in Five Cities
Shanghai - In an effort to promote eco-friendly, fuel-efficient auto models, the Chinese government will subsidize sales of green vehicles in five cities selected for a pilot program, Reuters reported today.
China would offer rebates to private first-time buyers of green cars, a statement on the main government website (www.gov.cn) said yesterday. The pilot scheme will be expanded to subsidize the purchase of clean-energy vehicles for public transportation fleets in 13 to 20 cities.
The trial program was first announced in February to promote the use of electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles by public transportation operators, taxi firms and postal and sanitary services.
