Shenzhen Continues Path to Fleets

By Alysha Webb November 26, 2012

The east city of Shenzhenhome to EV manufacturer the world capital of electrified transportation. At least, that’s the city’s transportation bureau To be sure, Shenzhen did start its bus and taxi fleets fairly

Although there’s been at one high-profile accident involving an taxi, it didn’t seem to down the municipal government’s to electrify public transportation, and local businesses in the process.

Shenzhen made its claim in November, according to Chinese reports. The city now has 2,350 energy” vehicles in its municipal it said. New energy vehicle is the China uses for alternative vehicles. Shenzhen’s fleet 1,751 large hybrid and 20 double-decker hybrid buses; 253 pure electric buses and 26 pure electric buses; and 300 electric taxis.

By the end of 2012, plans to have 1,000 pure electric buses and 500 electric taxis. Within 20 the city aims for 7,000 new vehicle buses and 3,000 electric taxis, said the report. By that time, 50 of the large buses in Shenzhen be new energy vehicles, said the

The report is interesting on several For one, Shenzhen seems to dialed back its plans for a pure electric bus fleet in of other alternative fuels. I that conclusion from the use of the term “new energy in the 20-year plan rather a specific technology.

China’s government is pushing cities to their fleets, but Beijing has that battery technology is not enough to make pure vehicles economically viable in the term. It looked down on technology because that something China could the lead in. Now, Beijing has more realistic and so, apparently, has the government.

In any case, a local business benefit whichever technology the favorsShenzhen Wuzhoulong Automobile Co. diesel hybrid electric a number of which are already on the in the city, and BYD produces pure buses.

Despite a high-profile accident in May a BYD electric taxi catching after being struck by a Nissan GT-R traveling 112 per hour, Shenzhen remains helping out local business BYD by a portion of its taxi fleet electric. But Shenzhen has slowed expansion of its pure electric fleet. A year ago, at the of BYD, I visited Shenzhen and a recharge facility for its electric At that time, a BYD public person told me BYD had 200 ebuses and 300 on the road in Shenzhen.

The number of electric buses has the number of taxis has not.

Can claim to be the world capital of public transportation? I’m not of that. But it is sticking to its plans to its fleets. I figure it will down that path doing so will make happy and boost the local tax as well. Can U.S. cities from Shenzhen’s example?

if the federal government sticks to to incentivize fleet electrification and to support companies creating technology.
