China Gets Electric

The news just gets better and better for domestic automakers.

Keith Bradsher of The New York Times reports:
Chinese leaders have adopted a plan aimed at turning the country into one of the leading producers of hybrid and all-electric vehicles within three years, and making it the world leader in electric cars and buses after that.

The goal, which radiates from the very top of the Chinese government, suggests that Detroit’s Big Three, already struggling to stay alive, will face even stiffer foreign competition on the next field of automotive technology than they do today.

“China is well positioned to lead in this,” said David Tulauskas, director of China government policy at General Motors.

  1. Just because they build, doesn't mean we'll buy... unless Walmart starts selling cars... then we'll probably buy. ;)
