With increasing worldwide environmental pressure and the everlasting fossil fuel conundrum, countries at large are adopting incentive policies to reduce consumption of fossil fuels and promote alternative energy sources, with China taking the lead on all levels with city, province and country policies that set clear emission and electrification targets for the near future. As a result, companies at large start devising ways to contribute to the government’s tall order –BYD has developed its 7+4 electrified transportation strategy, in which it is set to provide electric vehicles for every transportation need. There are7 vehicles for conventional fields: Transit Buses, Coach Buses, Taxis, Logistics Vehicles, Construction Vehicles, Waste Management Vehicles–the category of Beijing’s T8SA –and Consumer Vehicles; and 4 vehicles for specialized fields: Warehouse Logistics Vehicles, Mining Utility Vehicles, Airport Utility Vehicles and Sea-port Utility Vehicles.
