Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Promoting the New Energy Vehicle Industry to a New Level

New energy vehicles are the main direction for the transformation, upgrading, and green development of the global automotive industry, as well as the strategic choice for high-quality development of China's automotive industry. At the press conference, relevant officials from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stated that the next step would be to promote the new energy vehicle industry to a new level.

Up to now, the number of new energy vehicles promoted in China has climbed from 20000 at the end of 2012 to 12.27 million, ranking first in the world in terms of production and sales for seven consecutive years. From the perspective of technical level, the energy density of large-scale mass production power battery cells has increased by 1.3 times compared to 2012. In addition, the cumulative number of charging facilities has increased significantly from 18000 at the end of 2012 to 3.98 million at the end of July this year, while 1625 replacement power stations have been built. Currently, China's new energy vehicle industry has entered a comprehensive market-oriented expansion period, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will promote the development of the new energy vehicle industry to a new level.

Guo Shougang, Deputy Director of the First Equipment Industry Division of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said: Implement the "dual carbon" goal, accelerate the preparation of a green and low-carbon development roadmap for the industry, optimize the "dual point" management method, and improve the policy and regulatory system. Accelerate the research and industrialization of key technologies such as new system batteries, vehicle scale chips, and vehicle operating systems, and promote the integrated development of "vehicle, road, network, cloud, and map".

Guo Shougang said that in the next step, China will also optimize the layout of the new energy vehicle industry chain, accelerate domestic resource development, improve the recycling system, and improve the supply capacity and resource guarantee capacity of key components. At the same time, we will launch a pilot project for comprehensive electrification of public sector vehicles in cities, and organize new energy vehicles to go to the countryside.
