Thanks to the new Han model, BYD is now quickly expanding plug-in car sales.
BYD more than doubled its plug-in electric car sales in November to 25,553 (up 139% year-over-year), which is almost half of the total sales for the brand.
The results this year are still not as good as in the record year of 2018, but the Chinese manufacturer is gradually improving its position.
The most important thing is that more than 10,000 sales fall on the all-new BYD Han (BEV and PHEV), with BYD Blade Battery (LFP chemistry in cell-to-pack approach). In total, more than 20,000 Han were already produced.
Another important thing is the sales of the first 201 BYD D1 electric cars, envisioned for ride-hailing. Soon it might become one of the most popular BYD EVs.
