China Is Eating Our Lunch While We Watch

May 20th, 2019 | by Barry A.F.

One way or another, the future is coming for us. While we have not yet "decided" whether it will be climate disaster or climate saved, time will tell.The developed world's recalcitrance is not only costing us time in preventing the runaway effects that are coming, it's allowing China to gain a foothold and increase its influence, wealth, and power on the world stage


Top 10 Battery Companies For Chinese Electric Buses

April 14th, 2018 | by Tim Dixon

2017 was another big year for the deployment of electric buses in China, with 89,546 electric buses deployed, but who supplies the batteries that are creating the world's largest electric bus fleets in the world? For this, we need to find the 2017 Chinese installed capacity


Chinese Battery Giant CATL To Become #1 EV Battery Producer By 2020?

April 14th, 2018 | by Tim Dixon

Editor's note: This article follows up on our report last week that Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd (CATL) was recently approved to hold an initial public offering (IPO) that targets raising $2 billion or so. Tim Dixon, based in China, dug into this topic a bit more for a story on EV Obsession. We're reposting that story below


China 100% Electric Bus Sales “Just” 89,546 In 2017

February 4th, 2018 | by Tim Dixon

The Chinese market for pure electric buses had approximately 89,546 sales last year. This is down from 115,700 sales in 2016. This means that year on year, the market sales decreased by 23%. Reports indicate that this decrease is down to multiple factors, but mainly due to changes to electric bus subsidies from Chinese national and local governments


It’s Not Just Shenzhen — Jaw-Dropping China Electric Bus Roundup

January 6th, 2018 | by Tim Dixon

We've published a couple of articles recently on Shenzhen's dramatic electrification of over 16,000 buses — something completely unprecedented around the world. But to say this is an isolated case of Chinese electric bus leadership would be to miss the much bigger and broader story. Below is a roundup of electric bus stories from China from November and December. The full article on EV Obsession covers the whole year, January–December of 2017, in this way. Check it all out if you want to really be blow away or want to turn your brain into a mesh of electric bus stories and statements. —Zach


100% — Chinese City’s Record-Smashing 16,359 Electric Bus Fleet

January 3rd, 2018 | by Tim Dixon

Electric buses are a fun topic. They offer smoother, quieter, cleaner transport that leaves passengers, drivers, and everyone nearby feeling better. We get excited about electric bus orders that for 4 buses, and we get really excited about orders for a couple of dozen electric buses. Hundreds? Come on, don't be crazy! But enter into China and there's a vast difference regarding what's "possible" and what's happening. We already published one story on this news, but this EV Obsession piece from Tim Dixon offers more context regarding one of the biggest electric mobility stories of the past year (or decade), so we had to share. Enjoy! Also, Tim's first baby is on the way, so wish him some good wishes during this momentous month


100% Electric Bus Fleet For Shenzhen (Population 11.9 Million) By End Of 2017

November 12th, 2017 | by Nicolas Zart

You are definitely living under a rock if you haven't heard that many cities in China are suffering from record-breaking pollution levels. If you're a hardcore regular of CleanTechnica, you also know that electric buses have been selling like hotcakes in China. The EV-loving city Shenzhen is taking it one step further. In Shenzhen, electric buses will make up all public bus transportation by the end of this year, primarily BYD electric buses


China Electric Bus Sales Still Exploding

February 25th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

We wrote a couple of weeks ago about China's dramatic electric bus growth, but the numbers we had at the time only covered fully electric buses. We now have numbers for plug-in hybrids as well, again thanks to Jose Pontes and his helpful EV sales obsession


China 100% Electric Bus Sales Grew To ~115,700 In 2016

February 3rd, 2017 | by James Ayre

Our friend Jose Pontes, a bi-monthly CleanTechnica contributor, recently posted an article detailing electric bus sales in China during 2016 over at the EV Sales blog. The figures allow those of us living elsewhere in the world to get more than a bit envious about China's progress (those of us who don't like breathing the exhaust from diesel buses, that is)
