Almost 10,000 Electric Cars Were Sold In China In November
Sales of plug-in cars surge in China.
Just in November, 9,728 were sold, which is 10-times more than last year, when incentives to encourage buyers weren’t in place.
After 11 months of 2014, sales have reached 56,700 units and this is almost 5-times more than in the same period of 2013.
At this pace, we will not wait long for China to become largest EV market. However, a big part of those sales are very small electric cars, so it’ll probably be awhile before China takes over the leaders in real-size passenger cars ranks.
Separately, sources in China are indicating that sales break down in half for individuals and fleets.
The best selling model remains the BYD Qin plug-in hybrid with 1,753 sales in November and almost 13,000 this year, which translates to over 20% market share. BYD sold over 2,400 all-electric e6 thus far in 2014 in China.
According to the EV Sales Blog, we have data for other models like Chery QQ3 EV (est. 6,416), Zotye E20 (5,844), Tesla Model S (est. 4,149) and BAIC E150/E200 EV (2,619).
