    The thing about change is, it's not linear. And it doesn't happen in every place at the same speed.

    For the longest time, we've been writing stories when one University system orders 20 electric buses, or when one city commits to a major electric car fleet. Yet the idea that all buses might soon be electric seemed like a hard-to-fathom and far off dream.

    Yet last week, Cleantechnica reported on a story that 115,700 electric buses were sold in China in 2016. This figure apparently represents a 20% market share of all new electric buses! Compare that to the 1,672 electric buses that were sold in 2013, just three years earlier, and you start to understand how rapidly the landscape is changing. Apparently, the city of Shenzhen is planning foran all electric fleet of 15,000 buses by the end of 2017!

    Now, the flip side of this encouraging story is that the rest of the world has a long way to go before it can catch up. In fact according to EV Sales Blog (the original source for Cleantechnica's story), at the end of 2015 a full 98% of all the electric buses in the entire world were to be found in China.

    Still, given the fact that China is rapidly becoming a world leader in clean tech industries, that it is flexing its muscle in terms of international climate leadership, and that other cities around the world suffer from the same types of diesel-driven air quality problems that China has become known for, I think we can expect China's success story to translate into rapid adoption elsewhere.

    And when that adoption happens, I believe we'll be seeing the beginnings of the kind of disruptive demand destruction that could leave Big Oil in very serious trouble indeed.

    Shenzhen to Make All Public Buses Pure Electric by End of September

    Shenzhen to Make All Public Buses Pure Electric by End of September
    (Yicai Global) Aug. 7 -- China’s southern city of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, will convert all of its public buses to pure electric in September this year, local newspaper the Daily Sunshine said.

    Shenzhen has about 16,000 buses in operation, of which 14,695, or 90 percent, are pure electric. The city plans to retain a small number of non-pure electric buses for use in emergency situations.

    The city has built a total of 176 bus charging stations comprising 3,354 charging piles, while a further 1,265 piles are under construction. It still needs another 900 piles to meet demand.

    Shenzhen has also recently promoted the use of pure-electric taxis and has 5,487, or 30.6 percent of the total, in service as of July 31. City planners aim for all ordinary taxis and ride-hailing cars to be pure electric by 2020.

    China's largest new energy vehicle manufacturer BYD Co. [SHE:002594] is headquartered in the city.

    Beijing Converting 70,000 Taxis to Electric Vehicles

    Electric vehicles (EVs) are expanding in availability and efficiency all over the world. Phasing out fossil fuelled powered transport is a long complex process. In Beijing, a city with world-beating smog problems, the 70,000 strong fleet of taxis are going electric. All newly registered or replaced vehicles within Beijing have to be electric taxis. The cost of the program will be around $1.3 billion, a drop in the ocean relatively speaking. An electric taxi costs around $20,000 in China and they’re immensely popular.

    Electric Vehicles Are Big in China
    Other Chinese cities, Shenzhen and Taiyuan, announced similar policies. Beijing stands apart as it is a burgeoning global city taking an intiative leaving Western cities in the dust, or smog. China is the world’s biggest electric vehicle market, there are over 600,000 on the road.

    Change won’t happen overnight. A lack of charging points in the city poses a functionality problem. In reality though Beijing’s ambitious plan is another chance to consolidate advances and dominance in the EV market.

    EVs currently cost twice as much as gasoline vehicles. Liu Jinliang, Chairman of ride-hailing company Caocao, hopes the government will provide subsidies to mitigate the costs. The Chinese government also relaxed its regulations on car manufacturing, a move which will actually force China’s manufacturing hubs to innovate with EVs.

    By 2018 electric vehicles must account for 8% of each vehicle manufacturers production. That growth must be continued. Mechanisms employed in emission reduction will be used. Tradeable credits and ratio levels add some complexity to the simple 8% headline figure.

    In real terms the number of electric vehicles this policy would produce is staggering. 2015 saw 500,000 electric vehicles sold. China produces 28 million automobiles every year. Assume production stays at 28 million, that would be 2.3 million EVs made annually. Who is going to buy all these?

    China’s Power is Growing
    Trade links between the EU and China mean this policy on EV production has a global effect. German manufacturers are the biggest players in the Chinese car markets, and they will be subject to the same rules as Chinese companies. European car companies are already planning to shift to electrification. In order to keep access to the Chinese market companies need to move even faster. Alternatively companies could scale down operations. Many car companies aren’t ready to deliver EVs on that scale. If overall production dropped manufacturers would have time to shift resources into EV development. Hopefully coming up with a cheap and all-round top-notch electric vehicle for the people as an apology for lying about all those emissions.

    BYD electric taxi fleet to start engines in Singapore
    By CHAI HUA in Shenzhen | China Daily | Updated: 2017-02-21 09:37[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    New energy vehicle producer BYD Co Ltd announced that it has supplied 100 electric taxis to a new company which is launching its operations in Singapore on Feb 24, bringing the nation its first fully-electric taxi fleet.

    The fleet of 100 e-taxis is using BYD's e6 model, which is currently operating overseas in such cities as Brussels and London. In BYD's home city of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, more than 4,000 e6 taxis are currently on the roads.

    In a separate statement the operator of the new fleet, HDT Singapore Taxi Pte Ltd, said that acquisition of the BYD electric taxis tied in with the Singaporean government's plans to widen the testing of the viability of electric vehicles, from individual corporate usage to fleet-based, shared-car operations.

    Although Singapore had a total taxi fleet estimated at more than 28,280 taxis last year, about 86 percent of them use diesel and seven percent are petrol-electric taxis.

    Liu Xueliang, BYD's general manager for the Asia-Pacific region, said his company had been closely involved in the development of Singapore's electric public transportation and it would continue to introduce more e-vehicle types into the country, such as electric tour buses.

    Liu said that Singapore, which had also brought BYD's e-truck and e-buses, was an ideal city to develop electric vehicles.

    The company began its operations in Singapore in 2014 when 30 e6 hit the roads to provide on-call and leasing services, which had to date collectively driven about three million kilometers.

    BYD said that the private-hiring service, run in cooperation with local taxi firm HDT Singapore Taxi, was well-received.

    BYD said that the 30 units were all booked within days by locals, who hired them by the month or season.

    Last August, 100 e-taxi licenses were granted to HDT, making BYD the first Chinese company to enter Singapore's taxi market. Meanwhile, BYD also introduced its pure electric bus K9 into the nation.

    E-buses are a large part of the e-carmaker's revenue source, said Peng Qi, an automobile industry analyst at China Merchants Securities.

    However in the domestic Chinese market some cities-such as Shenzhen, whose transport policies supported the company's products-had already replaced all their buses with electric ones.

    As a result BYD needed to look for new markets and it was key for it to make inroads with electric passenger vehicles, he added.
