11:05, September 05, 2011

HAIKOU, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- More than 200 new energy vehicles were put on the streets of Haikou, capital of south China's Hainan Province, on Sunday for the public transport system of the city.

The new energy vehicle fleet are composed of 30 electric buses, 170 hybrid buses and 27 electric cabs.

The Haikou municipal government also plans to expand the environmentally friendly public transport vehicle fleet to 1,050 by the end of next year, according to a municipal development plan.

During the five years between 2006 and 2010, the Haikou municipal government has pumped more than 80 million yuan (12.5 million U.S. dollars) into the city's public transport system.

Hainan's scheme is part of the country's new energy vehicle plan that aims to have more than 500,000 electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles on the road by 2015 and 5 million by 2020.
