China Daily. Shenzhen, China is planning to have 35,000 electric vehicles on the road within 3 years, said vice-mayor Tang Jie at the C40 Hong Kong Workshop.
The city is trying to become more low-carbon through expanding public transportation, constructing environment-friendly buildings, lowering investments in energy-consuming sectors, and encouraging residents to live and consume in a low-carbon way, Tang said.
Shenzhen aims to build an electric car base at the national level during the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) period, Tang said earlier this month. It is now building recharging stations across the city, laying fundamental infrastructure for electric vehicles, Tang said at the conference.
