The electric car segment owes much of its success to the government. The main impetus to progress is the Minister of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China Wan Gang, who previously worked as an engineer at Audi. Its main goal was to oust European cars from the market, as well as to fight air pollution. Since 2009, China has developed programs to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide.

In addition, China provides a variety of subsidies to car companies. As a result, the production of electric vehicles has become stable and significantly cheaper.
