Related departments have begun planning the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei electric vehicle service network, said Ma Zonglin, NPC deputy and chairman of the North China Grid Company Limited board.

Ma said Beijing plans to construct about 30 charging stations will be put into service in 2011 for electric vehicles and more than 1,000 sanitation electric vehicles.

Currently, the North China Grid has embarked on the formulation of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei electric vehicle service network, which will be implemented in 2011.

Ma said that according to the plan, Beijing's surrounding areas within a radius of 300 kilometers to 500 kilometers will be accessible by electric vehicles in the future and the service network will focus on the construction of charging stations.

Ma said that in the future, residents are expected to receive 60,000 yuan of subsidies for purchasing each electric car.

"Of course, the subsidies may also be different in accordance with different car manufacturers and models," Ma said.
