The first region to stop selling cars with combustible fuel will be the Hainan Peninsula.

According to Argus Media, the Hainan Chinese peninsula will be the first region to completely abandon sales of cars with a classic internal combustion engine by 2030. The region’s leadership plan includes the provision of subsidies for the purchase of greener cars in the amount of 10,000 yuan, which corresponds to approximately 1,400 dollars.

Following this, it is planned to offer owners of electric cars the possibility of free parking. In addition, by the end of 2020, the provincial leadership plans to build 28,000 charging stations and sell 30,000 electric cars. It is worth noting that in the first four months of this year in China, electric vehicle sales amounted to 205,000 units, which is 44.8% less than a year earlier.

Recall that the ban on cars with internal combustion engines came into force after the scandal with the German manufacturer Volkswagen AG, known as the “diesel gate”. The provinces of China in 2017 began to develop plans for the complete abandonment of ICE. Along with Hainan, however, Shanghai offers smaller subsidies.
