Liuqiu, an island off the southern coast of Taiwan, will spend as much as $15.5 Billion over the next three years to replace all gas cars and scooters with electric vehicles.  By the end of that period, all vehicles on the island will be required by law to be emissions-free.

The plan covers buses, cars and scooters and is intended to make the tourist destination more appealing, particularly to those of a green bent.  Since many visitors to the island come for the SCUBA diving and snorkeling, it seems that the island's policy is likely to be viewed positively by the visiting demographic.

If the policy is successful, government authorities suggest that it may be expanded to other parts of Taiwan.
