Pas­sen­ger cars face new scor­ing sys­tem

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China will im­pose tough reg­u­la­tions in April 2018 on pas­sen­ger car mak­ers and im­porters to re­duce en­ergy con­sump­tion and ex­pand sales of new en­ergy ve­hi­cles or NEVs.

Au­tomak­ers and im­porters will be eval­u­ated each year for both fuel con­sump­tion of tra­di­tional cars and the out­put of NEVs.

They will be given two sep­a­rate scores, ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of In­dus­try and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy. If they fail to amass enough cred­its for ei­ther tra­di­tional ve­hi­cles or NEVs, they may face penal­ties and their prod­ucts may not be al­lowed on the road.

To gain a pos­i­tive score, car man­u­fac­tur­ers must make enough NEVs to ac­cu­mu­late cred­its higher than 10 per­cent of their tra­di­tional ve­hi­cle out­put by 2019. The pro­por­tion will be 12 per­cent in 2020.
