The Beijing municipal government plans to set up 100 rapid and 36,000 low-speed charging stations in the city in the next three years to encourage use of electric vehicles, local media recently reported.

The government expects that private owners will buy 30,000 new-energy vehicles by the end of 2012 - 23,000 of them pure electric and 7,000 plug-in hybrids, the reports said.

The plan suggests that buyers in Beijing could get subsidies of up to 50,000 yuan for a plug-in hybrid car and 60,000 yuan for a pure-electric auto.
