Hong Kong Trialing Two BYD Dual-Mode Plug-in Hybrids

In July, the government of the Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region) in China began trials of two dual-mode plug-in hybrid vehicles produced by BYD. (Earlier post.) The trial is designed to help promote clean fuel vehicles in Hong Kong, and to enhance public understanding on this new type of vehicle, according to Dr. Kitty Poon, SAR Under Secretary for the Environment.

This is the first time the SAR Government has conducted trials on hybrid vehicles that can be charged from an external source of electricity. During the three-month trial, the government departments involved will fully test the function and performance of the vehicles.

Dr. Poon used the plug-in to attend a children’s workshop in Yuen Long on designing their own environment-friendly shopping bags. The event was part of the publicity and educational campaign organized by EPD on an environmental levy scheme on plastic shopping bags.
