New energy car league formed in China
Adjust font size:

An "electric car league" has been set up recently by 10 Chinese car makers aiming to tackle the difficulties in the industrialization of new energy-propelled vehicles, according to Dong Yang, Secretary-General of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Its establishment was achieved at the 2009 "Top 10 Summit of the Chinese Auto Industry" held on July 11, when guidelines for the development of electric cars were also approved.

Under these, a leading group of electric car manufacturers, as well as a group responsible for the standardization of such vehicles, was formed.

The category includes not only electric cars, but also "hybrid cars".

Science and Technology Minister Wan Gang described the league as very important for the industrialization of new energy cars. Currently, it is researching the production of key components. "The technical difficulties will be worked out either by the league or by individual car makers with the benefits shared by all members of the league," Dong said.

The league is also expected to set the standards to be met when producing a new energy car in the future.

Domestic resources will be favored, while complying with international practice.
