The goal of 20% of all road vehicles globally to be electrically driven as of 2030 by the Paris declaration on e-mobility requires a rapid growth rate in PEV sales during the next 15 years. The experience of China, therefore, deserves consideration globally for its dramatic increase of PEV sales, which may suggest some potential for increasing PEV adoptions in other countries. Based on the surveys conducted from July 2015 to February 2016 in Beijing and Shanghai, China, snapshots of the PEV markets in the two cities are taken.
