93% of world's electric buses are driving in China...

This is in line with China's 2030 CO2 peaking and 2060 carbon neutrality programs, aiming to fully electrify its public bus fleet by 2035. At this stage 70% of China's fleet has been electrified in about 10 years time with some cities already 100% such as #Shenzhen leading the way having 17,000 #ebuses on the roads.

China's current electric bus fleet is estimated to save 270,000 barrels of diesel every day. This is over three times the volume saved by all the #ecars in the world.

In comparison, Europe sees about 8,500 e-buses driving in their cities (2021) and in the USA a little over 3,500 e-buses (2021).

But the green environment is obviously not just about the #electrification of #buses and other public vehicles such as #taxis, waste and cleaning service vehicles or couriers. The large-scale electrification is just one part of the ambitions and challenges in the whole circle of a green economy; including among others charging and #energy sources, public #infrastructure and a wider transformation to public and private #smartmobility and its regulations.

A blueprint for other cities in China and beyond.
