  • Goodness, gracious! puffyheart learned a whole lot of new things today. Way to put it in perspective! 2011: 14.5 million sales in China. While disproportionate to China's overall population, it's still hard to imagine the 75M units you mention and the 30M in 2020 that puffyheart has heard elsewhere. That would put us roughly at 84M in 2036: two year of the dragons from now. All these 2012 dragon babies will be looking for some hot rides by then, particularly during the annual CNY migration. The biggest takeaway from this article (iPHCho) is the 240k registration limit in Beijing, restricting 99% of the city's population to drive (legally). I mean, ok... let's take the Los Angeles population ~4M times 5 to match that of Beijing. It's scary to imagine the 405 or the eastbound 10 at 5 pm on a weekday with 5xs as much congestion. *shudder* maybe registration regulation isn't such a bad idea...
