According to CCT, Beijing which is the home town of BAIC, "are planning to turn Beijing into a paradise for electric vehicles which will include the option of foregoing the monthly lottery for a license plate, instead all EV buyers will be given a license plate instead of waiting for their turn at the license plate lottery, healthy subsidies are also being made available for EV buyers."
