BYD Achieves 6th Straight Plug-In Electric Car Sales Record
30,000 sales per month is just around the corner
In November, BYD once again set a new monthly sales record of plug-in electric cars in China. In total, 28,793 were sold (about 2,800 more than in October), which is 123% more than a year ago. The pace of growth is astounding.
Plug-ins now represents 58% of total BYD car sales (compared to about 30% year ago), which brings the company closer to entirely getting rid of ICE models at some point in the future.
