China PM calls for national roll-out of electric vehicles
] Text [ +
China’s premier said the government should use electric cars and buses in order to help improve pollution levels in the country’s major cities. The use of coal in power stations, homes and factories is often cited as the main culprit for China’s dire air quality, but the explosive growth in car use and urban transport has also contributed to pollution that has become a major concern in fast-expanding megacities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin.
In a statement posted Monday on the central government’s website, Premier Li Keqiang publicly backed the use of electric vehicles on a visit to electronics and auto company BYD.
