°°°°Central China's Changsha, capital of Hunan province, is to install more than 80,000 charging piles for electric cars by 2020.

°°°°According to a plan by the city's development and reform commission, 86,691 public charging piles for electric cars will be built in Changsha by 2020 to meet the demand of 83,000 NEVs.

°°°°The plan also stipulated that all new properties must have charging facilities or places to build charging piles. China, the world's largest auto market, supports NEVs as a way to ease pressure on the environment.

°°°°The government is preparing to ban the production and sale of diesel and petrol cars, but no timetable has yet been set.
