GAC Group's General Manager Zeng Qinghong said the route for GAC is "to start from hybrid and towards fully electric. Hybrid technology is more mature and more cost-effective."

In Shanghai and Guangzhou, customers who buy a fully electric car will get a car plate without charge and will not need to wait in the plate lottery process. Beijing, where car buyers have to wait for plate lottery, is reported to adopt this encouraging regulation this year.
