According to the Shanghai Securities News, the Chinese government has finalized a plan to offer incentives to buyers of green vehicles. The government will offer maximum subsidies of $7,300 (U.S., at today's exchange rates) for plug-in hybrids and an amazing $8,800 for fully-electric vehicles. Full details will be released by the Chinese government within the next few days, but the numbers are enough to make us jealous already. Surprisingly, the rebate for a standard hybrid vehicle in China comes in at a measly $440 – kind of odd if you ask us. Perhaps the government thinks that standard hybrids are already yesterday's technology, whereas plug-in hybrids and electrics are the future. Hat tip to Larz!
