BYD Qin Sales Exceed 1,000 In May; Electric Bus Deliveries Soar
BYD steadily increase the sales of Qin plug-in hybrid in China reaching a new high of 1,008 in the month of May.
After five months of 2014, BYD Qin sales amounted to 4,302, but plans call for sales to climb far higher.
This year, BYD would like to sell 20,000 copies of Qin, however with 6 month left to go, and 15,700 needed to meet the goal, the Chinese manufacturer needs to sell more than 2,500 a month now.
Anyways, according to Chinese media outlets, sales of BYD’s New Energy Vehicles increased this year 10-times. Some unbelievable news coming from the electric bus sector:
“The company gained 5,000 units of electric bus orders and delivered 4,000 units to the consumers in the first four months of the year.”
4,000 delivered? In four months? We already heard of high volume orders like 2,000 buses for Hangzhou, but still we’re in disbelief that BYD was able to supply 4,000 in 4 months.
