BYD is still struggling to get back to its previous sales results.

BYD was unable to increase its plug-in electric car sales in China last month, as in May only 10,601 units were delivered (down 49% year-over-year), compared to 12,262 in April.

That's the eleventh month of decline year-over-year and it will be extremely difficult to avoid the decline also in June, as June 2019 was an outstanding month with over 25,000 sales. The first major chance to improve will be July.

Sales of plug-in cars after the first five months amounted to 44,383 (down 61% year-over-year)

Besides cars, BYD sold some 724 plug-in commercial vehicles (trucks/buses), but that's also 13.6% less than a year ago.

This month, BYD will start customer deliveries of the all-new BYD Han, which may be the turning point for the company.
