In 2020, all major cities will adopt new energy vehicles.

 

Beijing Business News (Reporter Jiang Mengwei Yu Xinyi) On June 25, the Ministry of Communications held a regular press conference. At the meeting, Mao Jian, deputy inspector of the Department of Comprehensive Planning of the Ministry of Communications, introduced the main measures for the Ministry of Communications to fight the battle against pollution. Mao Jian said that in 2020, the transportation industry should achieve the set goal of "the successful completion of the task of tackling the traffic pollution prevention and control". To this end, the Ministry of Communications will adjust the transportation structure and increase investment in freight railway construction. At the same time, the promotion of the use of new energy vehicles, at the end of 2020, the municipalities in the key areas of the municipalities, provincial capitals, cities in the planned cities will be replaced with new energy vehicles.

 

Mao Jian is clear. According to the spirit and specific requirements of the National Ecological Environmental Protection Conference held in May this year, the Ministry of Communications will strengthen the upgrading of vehicle structure and promote the use of new energy vehicles. Vehicles such as ports, airports and railway freight yards in key areas will be replaced by new energy or clean energy vehicles. “Promoting the application of new energy and clean energy is one of the important measures for green transportation, which is conducive to optimizing the structure of transportation equipment, improving the efficiency of transportation equipment and overall energy efficiency. Our department will increase the number of new energy and clean energy vehicles in urban public transportation and rental. Applications in the fields of automobiles, urban distribution, postal express, airports, railway freight yards, and key regional ports. Cooperate with relevant departments to carry out the construction of charging facilities in expressway service areas and airport yards. By the end of 2020, urban public transport, taxis and The number of new energy vehicles in urban distribution and other fields will reach 600,000," said Mao Jian.

 

China's promotion of new energy vehicles is increasing. According to public data, at present, there are about 250 million people who choose to travel by bus every day in the country. The cumulative use of new energy vehicles in the whole industry has exceeded 300,000. According to the data released by Beijing Public Transport Group, the main body of Beijing's ground transportation, in 2015-2017, the proportion of clean energy and new energy buses in Beijing Public Transport Group has increased from 44.95% in 2015 to 60.7%, an increase of 15.75%. Despite this, it is less than two years since 2020, and the promotion goal of 600,000 new energy vehicles is still quite arduous.

 

Han Shizhen, deputy director of China Communications News, pointed out that the current promotion and application of new energy buses still faces many difficulties. First of all, due to the impact of battery cost, key components and components, industrialization and scale, and technological development, the purchase price of new energy buses is generally high, while state subsidies are decreasing year by year. New energy bus purchase subsidies and operating subsidies are subject to local finance. Other factors are limited.

 

In response, the Ministry of Communications is also actively implementing initiatives. At the experience meeting on the high-quality bus high-quality line held on May 27th, the relevant person in charge of the Ministry of Communications said that it will actively coordinate the financial department and rationally coordinate the adjusted rural passenger transport and taxi fuel subsidy funds to support the public. Traffic development and promotion and application of new energy vehicles will promote new and updated buses to prioritize new energy vehicles.

 

However, some insiders also said that at present, although some bus companies are still calling for the subsidy policy to continue to increase efforts, in order to truly develop the new energy automobile industry, the "government hand" cannot continue to support, but also rely on bus companies. Self-exploiting potential, realizing self-hematopoiesis, finding financing models suitable for the company itself, and reducing capital investment.
