Slowly but surely, Hainan is getting rid of fossil fuel cars. And it’s beginning with government vehicles.

The tropical island province had been discussing the move since last year.

Now, a formal proposal has passed to start phasing out fossil-fuel cars used by government and Communist Party departments, local newspaper Hainan Daily reported.

Starting from this year, such agencies can only select new energy vehicles when purchasing new cars or replacing existing ones. This does not include vehicles used for special purposes that have no clean-energy alternatives, the proposal explained.

By 2020, at least 10% of the total vehicles owned by government and Party departments should be new energy models. The figure should reach 70% in 2025, and 100% by 2028.

The province said it will ban selling fossil-fuel vehicles to all residents in 2030.
