In April 2019 Plug-In Electric Car Sales In China Increased 34%

Top four best selling plug-in electric cars in China this year include three BYDs.

Chinese plug-in electric car market is still growing at a healthy pace, but slower than in some previous months.

In April sales are estimated at 97,276 (up 34% year-over-year), which with a shrinking general car market translated to a great 6.2% market share.

During the first four months of 2019, sales amounted close to 368,000 at an average market share of 5.4%.

Model rank provided by the EV Sales Blog shows that BYD put three models into the top 5 for the year!

Here are the top five:

  • BYD Yuan BEV – 6,428 (3,874 YTD)
  • BAIC EU-Series – 4,738 (24,081 YTD)
  • BYD e5 – 4,602 (19,129 YTD)

Tesla Model 3 this time was estimated at 3,000, but in general it’s hard to guess how the Chinese market will react to the Model 3.

One of the biggest overseas surprises is the Volkswagen Passat GTE which noted a record of 3,767 sales (8,846 YTD), good for #11 after four months!
