Electric cars in China

China plans homegrown supply chain for green cars by 2035

Developing into auto technology powerhouse envisioned amid US friction

China's policy to boost production of electrified vehicles will likely be a boon to Japanese automakers such as Toyota Motor.

BEIJING -- The Chinese government said Monday it will dramatically boost the number of electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell vehicles on the country's roads over the next 15 years, with production to be fueled by a homegrown supply chain.

Under the plan released by the State Council, so-called new energy vehicles would account for half of all new vehicles sold in 2035. They will include smart cars that can connect to the internet, according to the blueprint.
