Today I watched a news-item on the English SKY news channel. It was about electric vehicles in China. Too few EV's are being sold there. To improve EV sales in China they have said that people who will buy an EV will immediately get a number-plate. Although people who want to buy an ICE vehicle will have to take part in some kind of a lottery in order to obtain a number-plate. And the government incentives for people who want to buy an EV are substantial (more than anywhere in the world). I believe they said that the Chinese government wants to have about 5 million EV's driving around in China in 2020. Things are moving in the right direction. Let's see how it goes. When is Tesla Motors going to open their shop in Beijing? Must be a matter of a few weeks now?
