BYD plug-in electric car sales in China – June 2017

BYD plug-in electric car sales in China – June 2017

Finally!

In June, BYD improved sales of its plug-in cars in China (year-over-year), after a long six months of decreases between December 2016 through May 2017 thanks to governmental red tape that took the air out of EV sales in the country for a time.

The Chinese manufacture managed the feat via the introduction of the new Song plug-in hybrid.

The Song PHEV set a new personal best result of 4,552 sales!

Also, the e5 all-electric car reached its highest sales ever as confidence return to the Chines EV buying public - 3,206 were moved during the month.

Overall, June was a new all-time record month for BYD, with some 11,009 sales.

BYD sales breakdown:

  • Song PHEV – 4,552  (6,838 YTD)
  • e5 – 3,206 (10,826 YTD)
  • Tang 1,573 (7,502 YTD)
  • 6 – 723 (3,455 YTD)
  • Qin EV300 – 593 (4,117 YTD)
  • Qin – 362 (1,654 YTD)
Because of the Song PHEV's surge, BYD once again sold more plug-in hybrid vehicles than all-electric (see graph down below), something of a rarity in China these days (see overall plug-in sales results for China here).
