In August, China set s new record for New Energy Vehicles (all-electric and plug-in hybrids) sales - over 18,000!
Now to be fair, not all of those vehicles were cars. EV Sales Blog is indicating that over 14,600 New Energy cars were sold. The rest must be buses or tinier transportation devices.
China's August NEV sales:
18,054 including 12,085 BEV & 5,969 PHEV
18,000 NEVs translates to growth of 350%, while BEVs increased 6 times year-over year!
After eight months of sales, China is already approaching 110,000 NEVs (63% BEVs).
The largest manufacturer is BYD with sales exceeding 5,000 cars a month. Other models are growing into thousands.
