China encourages electric vehicles on new web channel

I was just catching up on my China mountain bike news when this photo of a little electric car caught my eye. The story it illustrated was even more interesting as it announced the launching of a new channel on China Central Television ( CCTV). In an attempt to improve air quality and traffic congestion in its cities, electric bicycles, cars and other EVs will be promoted on the government's own web channel and will feature news and interviews with "governor's, environmental experts and electric vehicle companies", according to the post.
If you're interested in what the Chinese are up to with their plan for world-wide electric vehicle domination, you can check out the channel for yourself here. If you are like me and can't read Chinese you might want to try the soft poetry of the Google-translated version. If you're to busy for that, just watch this space and we'll keep you up to date on any pertinent news.
