China China Society of Automotive Engineers Released “Technology Roadmap 2.0 for Energy-Saving and New Energy Vehicles”

Aiming for 50% NEVs and 50% HVs for new vehicles by 2035

On October 27, 2020, “Technology Roadmap 2.0 for Energy-Saving and New Energy Vehicles” was launched at the annual meeting and exhibition of the China Society of Automotive Engineers (China-SAE) in Shanghai, China. The roadmap 2.0, compiled by the China Society of Automotive Engineers which under the guidance of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of People’s Republic of China, proposes targets such as, the share of new energy vehicles among new sales vehicles reach to 50%, and energy-saving vehicles fully realize hybrid power by 2035.The outline of the roadmap is as follows

The roadmap2.0 indicates the target such as the share of EVs and HVs in new sales vehicles keep increasing gradually. The specific figures are shown in the table below.

  By 2025 By 2030 By 2035
Major Milestones. Passenger cars Fuel consumption of new passenger cars (including new energy vehicles) to be achieved to 4.6l/100km (WLTC). Fuel consumption of new passenger cars (including new energy vehicles) to be achieved to 3.2l/100km (WLTC). Fuel consumption of new passenger cars (including new energy vehicles) to be achieved to 2.0l/100km (WLTC).
Commercial vehicles

 

Fuel consumption of freight vehicle to be reduced by more than 8% from 2019.

Fuel consumption of bus to be reduced by more than 10% from 2019.

Fuel consumption of freight vehicle to be reduced by more than 10% from 2019.

Fuel consumption of freight vehicle to be reduced by more than 15% from 2019.

Fuel consumption of bus to be reduced by more than 20% from 2019.

Energy-Saving vehicles Average fuel consumption of  new conventional energy passenger cars to be achieved to  5.6L/100km (WLTC). Average fuel consumption of  new conventional energy passenger cars to be achieved to 4.8L/100km(WLTC). Average fuel consumption of  new conventional energy passenger cars to be achieved to 4L/100km(WLTC).
Hybrid vehicles account for more than 50% of conventional energy passenger cars※1 Hybrid vehicles account for more than 75% of conventional energy passenger cars※1 Hybrid vehicles account for 100% of  conventional energy passenger cars※1
New energy vehicles New energy vehicles account for around 20% of total sales. New energy vehicles account for around 40% of total sales. New energy vehicles account for more than 50% of total sales.
The number of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles reaches  about 100,000. The number of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles reaches about 1 million.
ICV※2 ICVs of PA/CA level※2 account for more than 50% of annual vehicles sales.

HA level※2vehicles come into the market.

The rate of new vehicles installed with C-V2X terminals reach 50%.

ICVs of PA/CA level※2 account for more than 70% and HA level※2 vehicles account for more than 20% of annual vehicles sales.

The installation of  C-V2X terminals is basically popularized.

Widespread adoption of various internet-connected, highly automated vehicles across China. Advanced integration of Chinese-style ICVs with smart energy, intelligent transportation and smart cities.

※1 Percentage of new sale vehicles.

※2  PA: Partially Automatic Operation, CA: Conditional Automatic Operation, HA: Highly Automatic Operation

Regarding technology research, it will conduct research within the framework of “1+9”. The “1” represents the overall technology roadmap, while the “9” represents energy-saving vehicles, pure electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, ICVs, automotive drive batteries, electric drive systems for new energy vehicles, charging infrastructure, vehicle weight reduction, and smart manufacturing and major equipment for vehicles respectively.

The roadmap is expected to be published as a publication in the future (At the end of October 2020, the full text of the roadmap is still not available for review).
