BYD Sold Over 8,000 Plug-In Electric Cars In China In February
BYD increased plug-in electric car sales in China to 8,236 in February, which is excellent when you take into consideration holidays.
Year-over-year sales increased about four times and amounted to a solid 31% of total BYD car sales that month.
Last month, sales relied mostly on two out of seven models – the Song PHEV noted 4,418 – apparently the highest result of any plug-in model in China in February – and Qin PHEV at a healthy 3,009.
BYD sales breakdown:
- Song (PHEV) – 4,418
- Qin (PHEV) – 3,009
- Qin EV300 (EV) – 13
- Tang (PHEV) – 204
- e5 – 587
- e6 – 5
Four new BYD plug-ins are to be launched this year – that could explain why sales of BYD BEVs have been so low in recent months.
- e5 450 (longer-range version of up to 450 km)
- Qin EV450 (longer-range version of up to 450 km)
- Song EV400 (longer-range version of up to 400 km)
- Yuan EV360 (all new small SUV/crossover with range of up to 360 km)
