China is considering a new policy to promote electric vehicles – and the infrastructure needed to support them. According to Bloomberg News, the China Automotive Technology and Research Center wants to issue electric vehicle manufacturing licenses to companies other than carmakers.

That would allow firms like Chinese autoparts maker, WanXiang Group, to build cars in the country. It would also help Chinese companies compete with companies like Tesla Motors and BYD.China wants to reduce the nation’s reliance on fuel imports and cut air pollution.

And those government efforts to push for more electric vehicle sales seem to be working. According to Cardiff Business School, more than 25 million of them are sold each year in China.
