Will China have the world’s biggest electric car market

BMW predicts that China will have the world's biggest electric car market as the nation builds more charging infrastructure and promotes cleaner cars to cut pollution.

The BMW I3 is planned for launch in September, which has a fuel efficiency of 2.8 litres for every 100km (approximately 62 miles).

Test drives for the I3 will be available from Friday in Shanghai. Up to 500,000 electric vehicles are hoped to be on China's roads by 2015.
