More Than A Half Million EVs Sold In China In 2016, 100K Public Chargers Installed
China is the first country in the world to exceed 500,000 sales of plug-in vehicles annually, reaching about one million in total!
Official data for 2016 stands at 517,000 plug-ins produced and 507,000 sold – more than 350,000 of those were all-electric or plug-in hybrid cars, while apparently 115,000 were buses.
Last year, China added also some 100,000 new public charging stations!
As it stands, China is by far the largest plug-in market in the world, and hopefully in the near term will reach million sales annually.
