Tesla Model 3 Sales Booming In China, While Gigafactory 3 Construction Going 24/7

April 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

It's a bit harder for us to monitor Tesla activity in China than in the US and Europe. However, a certain Chinese American Tesla enthusiast seems to have a high number of connections there. Our friend Vincent routinely picks up intel on Tesla deliveries, Gigafactory 3 construction in Shanghai, and other matters. Below are some recent updates from Vincent


BYD’s Yuan & Tang Shine In February In China — #CleanTechnica Electric Car Sales Report

March 31st, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Traditionally, February, along with January, are the two slowest months in the Chinese plug-in vehicle market, but with sales growing 58% year over year (YoY) last month, to some 53,000 units, especially in the context of a falling market (the mainstream market was down 17% last month), one can’t really complain about this market, despite the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market share dropping slightly to 4.7% (4.3% in February). However, the 2019 result is already above the 2018 result (4.2%)

February 24th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

China is charging full speed ahead into electric vehicles, on track to sell over 2 million EVs this year, up from 1.1 million in 2018. The rapid growth has been driven partly by policy, but increasingly by consumer demand. In part two of this three-part series (check out part one if you missed it), we're going to look at the demand side of the EV transition in China. Why are Chinese consumers queuing up for EVs


China Electric Vehicle Sales Jump 175%, Up To 4.8% Of Auto Market In January!

February 24th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Traditionally, January, along with February, are the two slowest months in the Chinese plug-in vehicle market, but tradition is not what it used to be. Even with disruption hitting the Chinese automotive market (the mainstream market was down 18% last month), plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) sales were up an amazing 175% year over year (YoY), to some 96,000 registrations


China EV Forecast: 50% EV Market Share by 2025 — Part 1

February 24th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

China is charging full speed ahead into electric vehicles, on track to sell over 2 million EVs this year, from 1.1 million in 2018. The rapid growth has been driven partly by policy, but increasingly by consumer demand. A rising proportion of Chinese consumers simply prefer electric vehicles to traditional combustion vehicles, viewing them as a new and superior technology, and better value. With EVs continuously improving and getting more affordable, there's a clear path to EVs taking 50% of market share in China by


China’s Passenger Electric Vehicle Sales Jumped To 91,000 In January, Suggesting 2 Million Total Sales In 2019 — CleanTechnica Report

February 19th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

The China EV sales count for January 2019 is in. China recorded 91,175 passenger electric vehicle sales in the month, and around 96,000 when adding on commercial vehicles sales. Meanwhile, with total vehicle sales dropping in China almost 16% year over year this January, gasmobiles continue their inevitable fall whilst EVs inexorably rise

Top 10 Best Selling Plug-In Vehicle Brands In 2019

February 17th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

When people ask me which will be this year's best selling EV, the answer is simple: Tesla Model 3. But when people want to know more, I can guesstimate that the runner-up spot should come from one of these three models: Nissan Leaf, BAIC EC-Series, or BYD Yuan EV, with the Japanese hatchback probably surpassing the Chinese models


8% Plug-In Electric Vehicle Market Share In China!

February 3rd, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a 3 month streak of record-breaking sales, plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in December just kept on pushing forward. China registered over 180,000 PEVs in December, making it the 4th record month in a row and achieving 70% year-over-year (YoY) growth. That meant that 2018 sales ended north of the 1 million units mark. Yes, over 1 million PEVs in one year. And to think that 2017 was the first year that plug-ins reached 1 million sales globally. Whoa


Tesla’s Big Red Opportunity: China’s EV Market 3× Bigger Than US EV Market (Video)

January 31st, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Tesla CEO Elon Musk highlighted on the Tesla shareholder call tonight that Tesla is the first non-Chinese automaker that has been permitted to build a wholly owned factory of its own in China. No doubt about it, Tesla knows the opportunity in China is enormous and is grateful for that. The following repost from EVANNEX puts that into more context

Welcome to the next issue of China x Cleantech, our November 2018 edition.

Electric Car Sales In Emerging EV Markets — Chapter 1: Africa

November 24th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

While EV adoption is fairly well documented in North America, Europe, and Asia, other geographies have been mostly or entirely absent from the media coverage — like Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. While electric vehicles in most countries in these areas are still something for the future, there are some interesting cases that deserve special mention. As such, I have split this topic in three chapters — one for Africa, the second for the Middle East, and the third for Latin America. Here, I am covering chapter 1, Africa


20,000 BAIC EC-Series Sold In Another Record China Electric Car Sales Month

November 18th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

After a record-breaking September (104,900 plug-in electric vehicle sales), one would think that the market would take some time to breathe in October, but that wasn’t the case, with close to 120,000 registrations last month, breaking the previous record by a significant margin (14%). Overall, October 2018 electric vehicle sales were up 85% year over year (YoY)


The Interesting Mix Of Chinese EV & Tesla Revolution In China — How Will It Play Out?

November 10th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Electric vehicles are gaining traction in China. Daniel Ren (via South China Morning Post) writes, "While US maker Tesla often grabs the headlines ... BYD and peers like Beijing Auto and Roewe are quietly selling enough electric vehicles (EVs) to make China the world’s largest market for both electric and conventional vehicles. In fact, sales of EVs in China reached 770,000 units last year."
