The dream of BAIC Group: travel green, and improve international standing

If we ask the most direct relation between the "9.3 V-Day Military Parade" and people of Beijing, the answer must be “Parade Blue”. In order to continue he “Parade Blue” after the “APEC Blue” and the “Two Sessions Blue”, Beijing set odd-and-even license plate rule from August 20 to September 4 on all motor vehicles of the city while BEV mini-buses were not included in this traffic control rule.

As an important field of BAIC Group’s strategic development, BAIC BJEV now has become the first brand in BEV market. The purpose of BAIC Group to establish a new energy company is not only for enterprise transformation development and profits, but also for the beginning of improving international prestige of Chinese automobile industry. BAIC Group has foreseen that new energy vehicle is the solution for alleviating energy and environmental problems. Therefore, it makes its utmost effort to boost green travel.

By doing this, it makes its contribution for “Parade Blue” with practical action.

It is known that BAIC Group will reduce 170,000 tons of carbon emission if BAIC BJEV sells 10,125 BEVs (from March 2014 to March 2015) per year. This is equivalent to planting 240,000 trees and saving RMB350 million on controlling haze cost.
