Authorities in central China’s Hubei province offers as much as 90,000 yuan discounts on cars purchased from Dongfeng Honda Automobile, according to promotional leaflets at car dealerships.
A 4,000 to 90,000 yuan rebate would also apply to other models produced by another Dongfeng Motor joint-venture.
Dongfeng Motor, based in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, is a Chinese partner of PSA Peugeot Citroën of France and Nissan Motor of Japan.
At least 15 other local governments have also rolled out incentives to boost car sales. Shanghai in January revived a 10,000 yuan subsidy for those who replace petrol-guzzling cars with new-energy vehicles. Southwestern metropolis Chongqing has unveiled a trade-in programme for NEV buyers, dangling a 3,000 yuan sweetener through June 30. Guangdong province have launched car trade-in incentives and auto-themed promotion to spur consumption.
