Beijing plans to sell 30,000 new-energy vehicles and build 36,000 charging poles and 100 fast-charging stations by the end of 2012, the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission disclosed on Nov. 26.

According to the Beijing Pilot Subsidy Program for the Private Purchase of New-Energy Vehicles, the city is aiming to have 30,000 new energy vehicles on the road by the end of 2012, with 23,000 being pure electric vehicles and 7,000 being plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

Beijing will subsidize new-energy vehicles based on their battery capacities at 3,000 yuan per kilowatt-hour, but no more than 50,000 yuan for each plug-in hybrid electric passenger car and 60,000 yuan for each pure electric passenger car.

The city will also build 100 fast-charging stations, one battery-swap station and 36,000 charging poles by the end of 2012 in addition to developing a new-energy vehicle information management system.

Furthermore, Beijing will increase government purchases of new energy vehicles as well as encourage companies, public institutions and individuals to use electric cars. It will also give incentives for financial institutions to provide support through methods such as lending for the promotion of electric cars.
