China to Probe Overcapacity in New-Energy Vehicles
The Chinese authorities have started an investigation into overcapacity in the new-energy vehicle manufacturing sector as entrepreneurs have swarmed into the market to tap lucrative state subsidies, a senior official with the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said.
The government’s strategy to encourage production of new-energy vehicles (NEV)– those powered by fuel sources other than oil – has had some negative impact, Song Qiuling, a deputy director of the ministry’s department for economic construction, said at an event last week to promote a regulation on a planned NEV quota system.
