Policy intensifies as car companies accelerate new energy vehicle layout in rural areas

【PhoneAuto News】In recent years, the development of new energy vehicles has been rapid, and their performance in the market has been very strong. As the world’s largest new energy vehicle market, China has huge market potential. In order to assist the development of the industry and encourage and support the development of new energy vehicles, policies have been continuously introduced. PhoneAuto understands that since this year, the support for new energy vehicles to go to rural areas has been further strengthened by policies, and the broad sinking market has become a policy focus to promote the development of the new energy vehicle industry.

At the same time, many listed companies are accelerating their layout, such as GAC Aion and PetroChina reaching a strategic cooperation and competing for new blue oceans, and making comprehensive efforts to promote new energy vehicles to go to rural areas.

Previously, industry insiders predicted that the “charging pile market size for new energy vehicles going to rural areas may exceed 100 billion yuan.” For automakers, the rural market is a must-win situation.

Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration issued the “Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the Construction of Charging Infrastructure to Better Support the Development of New Energy Vehicles Going to Rural Areas and Rural Revitalization.” In the three aspects of innovating the construction, operation, and maintenance mode of charging infrastructure in rural areas, supporting the purchase and use of new energy vehicles in rural areas, and strengthening publicity and service management of new energy vehicles in rural areas, 11 specific measures have been proposed.

It is reported that the opinions point out that by moderately advanced construction of charging infrastructure and optimizing the environment for purchasing and using new energy vehicles, efforts will be made to promote new energy vehicles going to rural areas, continuously release consumption potential in rural areas, and guide rural residents to travel in a green way, thereby promoting the comprehensive revitalization of rural areas.

In April 2023, the retail sales of passenger cars reached 1.63 million, a year-on-year increase of 55.5% and a month-on-month increase of 2.5%; From January to April, the cumulative retail sales were 5.895 million, a year-on-year decrease of 1.3%. Among them, the retail sales of new energy vehicles in April were 527,000, a year-on-year increase of 85.6%; since this year, the cumulative retail sales were 1.843 million, a year-on-year increase of 36.0%.
