China is looking to fully ban gasoline cars down the road.

The surprising announcement was made at an automotive industry forum over the weekend. Xin Guobin, deputy minister of industry and IT, said the ministry has started planning out a timeline for the end of petrol and diesel cars, and light commercial vehicles.

China, the world’s biggest car market, sold 28 million cars last year. That’s a third of the 88 million cars and vans sold around the world.
