East Asia Graphics Series Electric Vehicles: Decarbonization Frontier

Electrification of vehicles is a key frontier in many countries’ effort in reducing carbon emissions—and for good reasons. The PRC is no exception and is in fact leading the world in this front. This infographic is developed along this year’s decarbonization theme of ADB East Asia Department’s flagship event, the East Asia Forum. It also marks the launch of the East Asia Graphics Series, where RKSI will share the PRC’s development stories in interesting graphics, charts, and analysis.

Authors: Hsiao Chink Tang, Senior Economist, ADB; Kai Jiang, Postdoctoral Researcher,  Postdoctoral Programme, China Investment Corporation; and Dan Wang, RKSI Knowledge Service Coordinator, ADB. Reviewer: Xinjian Liu, Senior Project Officer (Energy), ADB. Graphics: Kwan Seng Loh, Designer, PathDAO.
