BYD Sets New Plug-In EV Sales Record In China For July
BYD set new plug-in electric car sales record in China at 10,132 vehicles sold, a number which is 100% more than a year ago!
Last month’s result is just slightly better than June’s, and also just past the previous record set in December (total sales of 10,053)…but a “win” is still a win, and heralds the start of a strong second half of 2016.
The question now is whether or not BYD will ever fall below 10,000 from now? With such a high growth rate, 4 digit results may be a thing of the past. Perhaps an even better question would be, can the whole of US plug-in vehicle market stay ahead of BYD’s progress in China?
After the first seven months of 2016, BYD has already delivered over 53,000 plug-in cars. Last year at this point, the company was at less than 25,000.
