In line with the national effort to accelerate the deployment of new energy vehicles (NEV) and the Beijing Clean Air Action Plan 2013 - 2017, Beijing has revised its guidelines for municipal pilot projects.
The pilot project subsidises the purchase of NEVs, including electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles. The municipal subsidy may be applied together with subsidies from national governmental institutions, but subsidies must altogether not exceed 60% of the sales price of the vehicle. This implies that the city's financial subsidy standards shall be revised in case national policy is changed.
In addition, the municipality is tasked with improving the network system of NEV charging facilities, combining their urban planning capacuty as well as planning of distribution networks.
