Why Electric mini-buses become the mainstream of minibus industry

Nowadays more and more electric mini-buses comes up. New products are getting launched each month for many famous brands or non-brand companies. Why are the electric mini-buses getting more and more? People’s attitude from the very beginning of a wait and see to now many people support and change their mind. To summary up, there are totally 3 reasons as below:

1. Why air pollution getting worse

Electric vehicles (Electric minivan, electric mini-buses, electric bus and etc.) become more and more popular nowadays as the pollution issue caused the world’s attention of course including China. Vehicle emission is one of the major pollution reasons.

News from The Ministry of Finance that the auto industry is an important industry in China, a “big user” of energy consumption and pollutant emissions, it is the priority for energy conservation and emission reduction. In recent years, China’s vehicle ownership has increased a lot, it drove the economic growth of our country, promoting employment and improving people’s quality of life; meanwhile, the demand for gasoline and diesel keeping increase sharply, and the air pollution getting worse and worse, with the continuous improvement of oil dependence on foreign countries, the issue of energy security has become very prominent, and it is urgent to strengthen the energy conservation and emission reduction work of the automobile industry.

Therefore, in view of the current situation of China’s automobile consumption, the government decided to adjust the policy of automobile consumption tax from 1st September 2008, increase the consumption tax rate of large displacement passenger cars and reduce the consumption tax rate of small displacement cars. This policy is aimed at restraining the larger displacement automobile consumption and production. Also, encourage the production and consumption of small-displacement automobiles. It is conducive to reducing gasoline and diesel consumption, reducing air pollution. Moreover, it promoting the realization of national energy conservation and emission reduction targets.

2. Solution of energy consumption

The latest prediction from the U.S. Energy Information Administration: World’s energy demand will reach 10.599 billion tons of oil-equivalent in 2010. It will reach 12.889 billion tons of oil equivalent in 2020. Also, it will reach 13.650 billion tons of oil-equivalent in 2025, the average annual growth rate is 1.2%. The percentage of energy consumption of developed regions, such as Europe and North America is keeping the trend of decline in world’s total. While in Asia, the Middle East, Middle South American, and other regions keep the trend of increasing. With the increasing concentration of the distribution of energy reserves in the world, the competition  

Of energy resources will become increasingly fierce, and the way of competition will be more complex. The possibility of conflict or war caused by energy competition still exists. So the development and usage of new energy have become the focus of all countries.
