From now on, citizens can test drive China's Pioneer electric car for free, said Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang at the opening ceremony for the China (Shanghai) International Demonstration city Test Drive Center of Electric Vehicles, which went into operation on May 16.

The center will be a site where people can test drive new-energy cars year round, and it will collect user experience data in order to let the manufacturers realize market needs. Furthermore, it can enhance public awareness about electric vehicles and promote certain brands.
