China has not historically been at the forefront of the green movement. However, a major new effort to put more than a million hybrid and electric vehicles on the roads is part of a real sea change for the country. As part of the China's plan to become a world leader in green technology, 16 big state-owned companies have agreed to form an alliance to do research and development and create standards for electric and hybrid vehicles.
