In April, New Energy Car Sales Surged 129% In China
China remains the top plug-in electric car market in the world.
Sales are not only the highest, but also are increasing quicker than almost anywhere else.
In April, some 71,700 plug-in cars were sold In China – up 129% year-over-year, at record high market share of 3.7%!
After four months of 2018, sales amounted to nearly 197,500 cars at average 2.3% market share, according to the EV Sales Blog.
The best-selling model for the month and for the year is, without surprise, the BAIC EC-Series. This small, all-electric car noted nearly 7,500 in a single month – and more than 27,000 so far in 2018.
BYD placed three models in the top five (Song at #2, Qin at #3 and e5 at #5), and as always in recent times JAC iEV S/E keeps the pace at #4.
The Baojun E100 – fruit of GM and SAIC partnership – achieved 3,760 sales last month and 5,342 YTD. Price of $7,300 (after subsidies) does the job.
