SHANGHAI, May 28 (SMM) – Central China’s Henan province earlier this month announced a slew of actions to step up its efforts in promoting new energy vehicles across the region.
According to the Notice on Polices for Henan to Speed up Promotion of the Application of New Energy Vehicles, new public fleets including buses, taxis and sanitation trucks across the province all will be NEVs.
Diesel and gasoline vehicles operating for public services will be phased out within three years in key cities and five years in other cities.
All new official cars should be NEVs in key cities and exceed 50% in other cities.
The Notice also said that NEVs will be exempted from, or pay discounted parking fees. And it encourages local cities to offer subsidies for charging NEVs.
Aside from the deployment of NEVs, charging was also a focal point. Electricity charging stations, points and hydrogen fueling stations can receive an incentive of 30% of total investment in major equipment.
Hebei also aims to get all expressways across the region furnished with charging facilities by the end of 2020.
