    China electric-car rules to start in 2019.

    China electric-car rules to start in 2019; aggressive totals are world's highest

    You may not have heard it happen, but the global automotive industry changed forever on Thursday.

    China released its plan to require substantial sales of plug-in electric cars by all makers who want to sell in the world's largest car market, and they start in little more than a year.

    The levels far exceed those required by California, whose zero-emission vehicle rules have just started to ramp up for 2018 after staying steady for six years.

    "It is no exaggeration to call this a landmark event in the history of the automobile," said Michael Dunne, who's covered that country's auto industry for 20 years.

    China's electric-car production quotas, as detailed in China Daily and covered by Bloomberg among others on Thursday, apply to any maker selling more than 30,000 units a year in China—which last year bought 28 million vehicles.

    We know that China has the largest population in the world, but even although they do not yet have enough of this population earning the salaries to buy a new EV, it does appear that they are probably the largest lobbyists for the reduction of air pollution, due to the heavy smog that they still suffer from.

    If China becomes the greatest influence in the world for the building and selling of electric cars, then this will be a great thing.

    I think we are going to see the rest of the Asian and Far Eastern car manufacturers in countries like India, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, etc' gearing up to compete against China in the making and selling of electric vehicles, not to mention the American, and all of the European car manufacturers too.

    As diesel and petrol fuels are no longer needed because of the banning of fossil-fuel-burning vehicles in most of the towns and cites of the world, we are bound to see the rise of plug-in hybrids and straight EVs in these countries.

    This cannot come quick enough for me.

    Thanks for that Papa, as it certainly does look as if the EV manufacturers and sellers are going to be starting a strongly discounted sales pitch very soon.

    It looks as if electric cars are going to be everywhere eventually.

    Yes, my dear, they certainly are.

    If that does happen we are going to have to see many more thousands of charging points available to us up and down the country.

    I am sure it will happen, as by the time that all of the car manufacturers build the electric cars they they are talking about there will be plenty of charging stations up and down the country to service them.

    If they ban all of the diesel and petrol-burning vehicles from towns and cities, the thousands of petrol and diesel filling stations, that used to serve them, will be defunct and will be replaced by fast chargers.

    The one might not replace the other as efficiently as you suggest Angie, but it should happen eventually.
