According to the ChinaAutoWeb, Chinese manufacturers produced some 76,233 NEVs (New Energy Vehicles) by the end of June, and sold nearly as many (72,711, up 240% year-over-year).

Around 25,000 were produced in June, which is a pretty strong surge.

Numbers includes different vehicles, out of which passenger cars had 50,627 deliveries - 29,743 BEVs and 20,884 PHEVs.

BYD on the top of the list isn't a surprise. In the second place are BAIC' BEVs - we believe three models gathered as one (is that fair?). Sadly, we don't have data for cars imported to China like Tesla Model S.
