It's third monthly record in a row
According to the EV Sales Blog, roughly 141,800 plug-in electric cars were sold in China last month, which is the highest result ever registered - 18% higher than the previous record in October.
The pace of growth is remarkable - 59% year-over-year at outstanding 6.3% market share (partially because the overall market shrunk by 14% in November).
The latest update shows that more than 920,000 plug-in cars were sold in China so far this year, which with one month to go means no only exceeding 1,000,000 but maybe reaching 1,075,000.
BYD and BAIC lead the Chinese plug-in market, but in November GM & SAIC's joint fruit also achieved a good result:
- BAIC EC-Series - 14,205
- BYD Tang PHEV - 6,405
- BYD Yuan PHEV - 6,188
- BYD e5 - 5,573
- Baojun E100 - 5,155
