A decade ago, there were almost no electric cars on Chinese roads. Today, the country sells more battery-powered electric cars, upwards of 1 million in 2018 alone than the rest of the world combined. The Chinese government now wants to do the same for hydrogen-powered cars.
In 2009, China launched a program known as “Ten Cities, Thousand Vehicles” to promote electric vehicles (EVs), with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) now both widely in use in the public transport and private-car sectors. This year, China’s considering rolling out a similar plan to develop hydrogen-powered cars, or fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs).
