The new energy automobile is developing rapidly in China. China has become the biggest producer, consumer and exporter of electric vehicles in the world.
According to the blue paper on China's auto industry in 2009, the number of electric bicycles and electric motors has reached about 50 million, which accounts for 90% of the world total.
The development of the light electric vehicles promotes the development of battery power and motor industry, which has narrowed the technology gap between China and the rest of world.
One of the targets set by the national plan on industrial adjustment and revitalization of China's auto industry released in March, 2009 specifies that by 2011, China will have developed the production capacity of 500,000 new energy auto vehicles, including pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles and mixed power-driven vehicles.
