Is China leading the world in electric vehicles (EVs)?

If you feel like digging through this Seeking Alpha article, you’ll find that EV auto sales in China were up to 3.3% in December. That’s well above the 1.2% in the U.S. and 1.9% in Europe. Another quote from that article: “China is likely to announce its internal combustion engine [ICE] ban plan date sometime in 2018. Then, by January 2019, the new China zero emission vehicle [ZEV] system will begin, boosting sales of longer range pure EVs.”
