Eco-friendly vehicles are playing a leading role in the transportation fleet for the ongoing APEC meetings in Beijing, showcasing China's national initiative to reduce air pollution by cutting exhaust emissions.

China will adopt cleaner fuel standards that are equivalent to the Euro V standards and promote new energy vehicles in key areas by 2017, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

In keeping with that initiative, more than 100 new energy vehicles are part of the transportation fleet for the weeklong Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting, including 50 pure electric vehicles from Beijing Automotive Group that are not yet available on the commercial market and 53 hybrid vehicles from Infiniti.
