Electric Dreams—BYD Auto Electric Cars to Israel

this spring this identified an upstart Chinese company called BYD Auto is, despite is short operating in the auto industry, introducing one of the innovative automobile makes in the fully commercial electric the likes of established auto like General Motors its flagship electric car make—the Volt ). It was reported earlier month that BYD Auto start selling its fully E6 and plug-in hybrid electric models in Israel in 2009 of the commercialization of GM’s Chevy which will only being produced in 2010).

is a logical market choice, Israel’s new embrace of the electric car and its plans to, through Project Place (a groundbreaking initiative led by technology-entrepreneur Shai Agassi) and the aid of tax build a nation-wide electric car by 2011. In simple terms, an infrastructure consists of plug-in cars supported by advanced technology, a network of recharge and battery exchange stations, and a grid fed with renewable

I was initially skeptical of the true proposition of hybrid and electric car In a previous post. I argued disruptive technologies . by themselves, little by way of sustainability if not integrated the improvement of a greater whole at the Thus, it is not enough to push the of fuel efficient cars if a marketing blitz adds cars on the road and further urban sprawl.

However, in that post, I did not the potential for grid-tied plug-in vehicles (whether fully or of the hybrid sort) to transform our fuel energy system a renewable and cleaner one.

An Crossroads

The green proposition of cars, especially the plug-in is that by promoting the development of generation and energy storage development (in the form of energy devices such as batteries), cars are not only reducing the for gasoline, but also creates factors for the development of grid-connected energy sources such as and wind energy by creating new demand and provide energy solutions to address the problems of the nature of solar and wind In essence, individual electric each equipped with batteries, apart from as energy storage devices for the use of the could serve as energy for the grid system, and even (and sell) back to the grid if the vehicle is not in use.

Here then is a truly system . arranging discrete technologies (electric cars, battery systems, a network of recharge stations, an integrated grid) into a cohesive The plug-in electric vehicle is of the energy crossroads between transportation and renewable grid A more detailed explanation on how renewable energy transformation is by electric cars can be found on on Better Place’s website.

It was unclear if BYD’s entry to would be in collaboration with or with Project Better Given the inter-operability of Better network (website: “Cars the Better Place model can their batteries as “guest so long as the driver acquires an converter.”), it would make for BYD cars to take advantage of infrastructure. A separate report however, that BYD might be a competing infrastructure with Israeli partners.

We shall see soon enough how pan out.

Ahead of this market entry, BYD plans to the sale of grid-independent (i.e. in) hybrid electric vehicle, the later this year .

Big More Tax

On the transportation policy most of the traffic measures put in for the Beijing Olympics have, as proved to be short-lived. But the Beijing continue to show their to mass transit, reassuring fares for public transportation continue to be maintained at their low levels to encourage use.

Separately, the Ministry of Finance is on tax measures to influence the auto of consumers. Beginning September 1, on bigger cars will be while those on smaller will be reduced (see right for details). While the purpose of the higher taxes is to fuel consumption and pollution, a look at the history of taxes on in China suggests that may be more a protectionist move than a green one.

The World Trade Organization, ruled against China past July on its previous tax of preferential tax rates for domestically cars violated international rules. The newly revised tax do not explicitly single out foreign over domestic cars, but it so happens that the smaller are mostly dominated by local while larger cars are The Economist wryly observes:

China’s new tax is canny. It cuts use, reduces imports, local carmakers and may help to air quality. It also prevents any pesky calls from
