The country, home to the world's largest auto market, is working on a plan to ban the production and sale of vehicles powered exclusively by fossil fuels, officials say.

Predicting the future of eco friendly cars, China has begun studying when to ban the production and sale of cars using traditional fuels, the official Xinhua news agency reported, citing comments by the vice industry minister, who predicted "turbulent times" for automakers forced to adapt.

The country's vice minister of industry Xin Guobin said his ministry has started to undertake "relevant research" and to work with other regulators to establish a timetable to put the ban in place, but doesn't yet have a framework in the pipeline.

"The implementation of the ban for such a big market like China can be later than 2040", Liu Zhijia, an assistant general manager at Chery Automobile Co., the country's biggest passenger vehicle exporter, told Bloomberg.

The world's second-biggest economy, China made 28 million cars a year ago - nearly a third of the global total. "That will leave plenty of time for everyone to prepare".

In May India's leading think-tank laid out a 15-year roadmap for electrifying all new vehicles in the country by limiting registration of petrol and diesel cars while giving incentives and subsidies on sales of electric cars.

Carmakers are following suit. The company wants to sell one million models by 2025.

Ashok Leyland, which launched an electric bus a year ago, has partnered with Indian start-up SUN Mobility to develop battery-swapping technology for cars, buses and trucks.

China would like to have sales plug-in hybrids and electric cars as one-fifth of all vehicles sales by the quarter century.

Electric vehicle sales in India, one of the world's fastest-growing auto markets, are negligible compared with annual sales of over 3 million petrol and diesel cars last fiscal year, according to industry data.
