BYD continues to quickly increase plug-in electric car sales, maintaining an unprecedented rate of growth and setting more records.
According to the company's report, in June, BYD plug-in car sales amounted to 133,762, which is 233% more than a year ago and a new all-time record (after 114,189 in May).
That's the 4th consecutive monthly record and the 12th in the past 13 months. But one of the most spectacular things is that the volume increased by almost 20,000 (from the previous record) in just one single month.
The overwhelming majority of BYD sales are in China.
If we take a look at the details, it turns out that both all-electric (BEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) car sales reached new record levels in June, more than tripling the volume year-over-year. An interesting thing is that BEVs grew faster than PHEVs for the first time in about 20 months.
BYD plug-in car sales results:
- BEVs: 69,544 (up 247% year-over-year)
- PHEVs: 64,218 (up 219% year-over-year)
- Total: 133,762 (up 233% year-over-year)
According to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), some 2,177 BYD plug-ins were exported.
