About 60 percent of Chinese consumers would consider buying plug-in hybrids or pure electric vehicles in China, according to an Ernst & Young report released Wednesday, a percentage higher than in any other country surveyed.

The finding suggests huge market potential in China for green car manufacturers.

The company conducted a survey of 1,000 Chinese respondents who currently own a vehicle or plan to purchase one within three years.
