While the government’s announcement is seen as a step in the right direction, it is going to impact the plans of automakers, electric vehicle (EV) charging point operators (...
    Emission regulation in mainland China and impact on vehicle scrappage volume
    China, the world’s largest auto market, has for long grappled with air pollution.
