Q: Electric cars in China

Found this article posted by Forbes about 6 months ago explaining electric cars market in China. http://www.forbes.com/sites/tychodefeijter/2016/05/18/10-new-electric-cars-from-china/#4cc861d21e2f To be honest I was quite surprised that there are so many companies manufacturing  them in China. Do you have any experience using a China-made electric car?

I hope the Chinese can set a trend and get the industry moving at long last.
this would be the only way the oil companies would have any competition .
if China went Electric more countries would feel better about getting serious about their electric car industry.

I my city....well not actually mine, bit the one in which i live, about half the taxis and most of the public buses are electric vehicles. The traveling experience is smoother but otherwise the same as the oil type.

There are lots of hybrid taxicabs now, not just in China. While I was back home in Canada, the taxi driver told me his cab was a hybrid and used VERY little gas. He said the companies were going to all switch to them because the savings were so great after one year they were able to double the number of cars. 

 

This is good news for the planet and for people that hate driving. I hate driving in China so I hope more and more of these hybrid cars show up.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
