According to the Hainan New Energy Vehicles Development Plan, Hainan will speed up the promotion of clean energy vehicles and has set specific targets and outlined a road map, becoming the first province to unveil such a timeline.
By 2020, all vehicles added or replaced in the public service sector, including government vehicles and buses, will use clean energy.
New and replaced rental cars and vehicles used for postal service and logistics will be required to use new energy.
Automobiles used for sanitation, tourist transport and urban-rural passenger transit will be replaced by clean energy vehicles by 2025, according to the plan.
It said a greater proportion of newly licensed private passenger cars will be new energy vehicles, with a 10 percent increase every year, eventually reaching 80 percent by 2025.
Sales of gasoline-fueled automobiles will be banned throughout the province by 2030.
