Nanjing was quick to promote the application of new energy buses. The city achieved 100% adoption of new energy and clean energy buses in the main urban area by 2019, accounting for 95% of the total number of buses in the city, reducing carbon emissions by more than 180,000 tons of carbon per year on average. In doing so, 1,874 charging piles to “escort” new energy buses were built. At the same time, Nanjing has also implemented innovative designs for the vehicle body and interior, according to local conditions, so as to improve comfort, safety, and convenience.
The successful promotion of new energy buses not only protects Nanjing’s blue sky through carbon emission and pollution reduction and creates greener job opportunities, but also provides citizens with a more comfortable, safer and smarter way of travel.
