Hangzhou, capital of China’s eastern Zhejiang province, asked ride-hailing services to use only electric vehicles on June 25. The city asks ride-hailers to use either newly purchased new energy electric vehicles or electric-powered vehicles worth more than 150,000 yuan ($21,000). New energy vehicles must have a wheelbase of no less than 2,700 millimeters, a luggage compartment volume of no less than 400 liters, and a range of at least 400 kilometers (apart from battery swap cars). The vehicles must also be equipped with GPS that can register the car’s travel itinerary, as well as an emergency alarm. These vehicles will be connected to a supervision platform, according to the city’s policy document. [36Kr, in Chinese]
