Guangdong Rolls Out Massive Electric Bus Upgrade
(Beijing) — Three of the four largest cities in affluent Guangdong province will upgrade their entire public-bus fleets to electric-powered vehicles by 2020 — part of an ambitious plan to make three-quarters of all provincial public buses powered by clean energy over the next five years.
The provincial capital of Guangzhou, along with the adjacent city of Foshan and the boomtown of Shenzhen, which borders Hong Kong, lie at the heart of the determined upgrade, which is part of the province’s Five-Year Plan that runs from 2016 to 2020. China has been aggressively promoting new-energy vehicles over the last five years in a bid to clean up the nation’s polluted air and develop cutting-edge technologies that can be exported.
