What does Japan need to do to lead the world in the market for clean energy vehicles?
Under the new Eco-Car Act in Japan, clean energy vehicles can enjoy tax reductions with respect to vehicle tax, such as motor vehicle tonnage tax, automobile acquisition tax, and motor vehicle tax (ownership).
The Japanese government also offers subsidies for electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles, and clean diesel passenger vehicles, in order to reduce fossil fuel and CO2 emissions.
Even though Japan is known as a country that has good technology for EVs, its diffusion rate is not high compared to other countries. For instance, in Norway, EVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles comprise about 29% of all new car registrations whereas it is only 0.6% in Japan. There are also concerns that Japan lags far behind the emerging market for EVs in China, which will negatively impact the future of its world-class automobile industry.
