China: The Evolution Of Mobility and Transportation
Leading the global lower carbon energy transition and the biggest electric vehicle producer in the world, China is maximising opportunities to resolve mobility and climate issues simultaneously.
China is leading the world in the transition to lower carbon energy systems. While older generations put value on more luxurious mobility standards and accept their cost, younger Chinese who have grown up using digital platforms are more focused on environmental issues, technology, autonomy, shared mobility and the simplicity of getting from A to B.
The biggest electric vehicle producer in the world, China’s EV transition is an example of how policymakers can take advantage of economic opportunities to resolve mobility and climate issues and simultaneously gain a competitive advantage. But what else is needed?
Efficient public transport is vital in densely populated cities where air pollution, parking and congestion are major issues. China intends to provide more subsidy schemes to support electrified bus fleets by 2022 and install more charging stations.
