We review pas­sen­ger car deploy­ment trends in China until 2050, which are used to develop a model to explore deploy­ment sce­nar­ios for New Energy Vehi­cles (NEV: plug-​​in hybrids and bat­tery elec­tric vehi­cles) in terms of car­bon diox­ide emis­sions, costs, and elec­tric­ity demand. We find that, invest­ing in large-​​scale NEV deploy­ment min­i­mizes over­all costs over the 2050 hori­zon. How­ever, far more aggres­sive short-​​term poli­cies designed to decrease near-​​term tech­nol­ogy cost trends will be needed to encour­age a rapid tran­si­tion to NEV deployment.
