The BYD Yuan BEV is already at 100,000 sales, but needs to improve to live to 200,000.

BYD, one of the leading Chinese New Energy Vehicle manufacturers, celebrates production of the 100,000th Yuan model, the small and affordable all-electric crossover.

Yuan entered the Chinese market in June 2018, quickly gaining popularity and gradually reached peak sales of 10,093 in January 2019.

Since Spring 2019, sales volume started to decline and currently is far from its best. One of the biggest factors is lower subsidies for the BEVs since mid-2019, and then also the coronavirus.

The prices after incentives are from 89,900 ($12,980) yuan to 139,900 yuan ($20,199).

BYD Yuan BEV sales:

  • 2018 (7 months): 35,699
  • 2019: 61,900
  • 2020 January: 1,202
  • Total by the end of January 2020: 98,801
