BYD e6 Electric Car To Be Sold In The US (In Bulk Only)
May 27th, 2013 by Nicholas Brown
The Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer BYD will sell the BYD e6 electric car in the United States, but only to fleet buyers (basically people that buy many cars per order).
BYD sold 1,700 plug-in vehicles last year. It fell short of its sales expectations and its share value dropped by 75%. (Maybe Volvo can give them some advice?)
One rumor for how BYD is going to pick itself up is that it will switch to only selling electric and hybrid cars. What do you think? Does the company have a shot here?
