Jilin in China is targeting 100,000 capacity of green autos by 2015
Jilin, a province in China, is targeting green energy automobile output capacity of about 100,000 units by the year 2015. This was said by an official at the Jilin’s department of information technology. The official also said that about half of the new energy automobiles will be in the form of electric vehicles. Right now, this place has about 100 hybrid electric buses which run on the road in Changchun and Lioyuan.
By the year 2010, Changchun wants to have about a thousand new energy automobiles comprising of 300 cabs and 700 buses. On August 26th, this city for the first time, started e-vehicle charging and it represents a very important step for green auto expansion plans of this city. In April 2010, a company called FAW Group Corp, which is based in Jilian itself, put production line in to the operation with annual output capacity of about three thousand sedans all of which were hybrid electric.
It is really intriguing to see the rise of such automobiles in the global market. China is much ahead of the rest of the world in terms of producing such vehicles and this can be attributed to the cheap production costs. People all over are expecting a wide rise in the use of these vehicles in coming years because the gas is getting more expensive day by day. Hence vital steps are taken by various e-car companies for having enough inventories to satisfy the rising demand.
