The Han model drives BYD sales up in China.
BYD's start to 2021 was pretty strong with 19,871 plug-in electric cars sold in January in China. That's 183% more than a year ago, although of course it did not match January 2019.
Most of the BYD plug-in car sales fall on the BYD Han model - 12,103 units, including 9,298 all-electric and 2,805 plug-in hybrids.
