The project is a continuation of a similar scheme with 200 Beijing Auto E150EV (the predecessor of the EV200) that started last year in the north eastern suburbs.
The new project was announced on the very last day of 2014 but it hasn’t officially started yet. The example I found in Fangzhuang is probably one of the first cars to hit the road.
