For the further implementation of Jinping Xi’s speech spirit, on the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee. China will accurately grasp the characteristics of the Times in the new stage of development while facing “The overall strategy of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the great changes unseen in the world in a century”. China will unswervingly implement the new development concept of “innovation, coordination, green, open and sharing”. China will also speed up the construction of domestic and international dual cycle to promote the new development pattern of each other.
In particular, we investigated and implemented the target goals and tasks of carbon peak and carbon neutrality set out in the 14th Five-Year Plan. According to the survey, with a population of 1.4 billion and a middle class of 560 million, in 2020,China had 280 million cars and 4.92 million new energy vehicles. In 2021, China had 302 million cars and 7.84 million new energy vehicles. China’s oil industry is 65 percent dependent on foreign investment, and gas-powered vehicles account for one-third of its oil consumption. Among them, Beijing has a permanent population of 21.886 million. In 2021, there were 6.143 million civil vehicles, an increase of 140,000, and 507,000 new energy vehicles, an increase of 107,000.
According to the 2021 China Urban Transport Report, Beijing’s rush-hour commuter congestion index was 2.04. Beijing’s urban traffic congestion has been normalized. The environmental protection pressure of energy conservation and emission reduction is rather huge for Beijing. Energy consumption, pollution, traffic efficiency, travel safety and other problems are forcing the whole auto industry of Beijing to upgrade. Aiming at these problems, this paper puts forward four suggestions.
