October 25th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

There seem to be no end to the end-of-incentives hangover in China, with the Chinese plug-in market dropping a steep 27% year over year (YoY), and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) crashing 45% YoY last month. Additionally, BEVs finally got dragged into the red ink, dropping a harsh 20% in September. The overall auto market was not so catastrophic, sliding down just 6% Yo


China EV Sales Report — Baojun E-Series New #1 In Receding Market

September 29th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The end-of-incentives hangover deepened in August for the Chinese plug-in vehicle market, with the market dropping a steep 12% year over year (YoY) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) crashing 51%. Amazingly, fully electric vehicles (BEVs) managed to grow, by 4%, a small increase over the 1% growth rate of July, which means BEVs are currently the only ray of light in the Chinese auto market (the overall market also dropped, by 8% YoY)


Chinese EV Sales In July: After The Subsidy Storm

August 18th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After an end-of-incentives derived surge in June, July saw the expected hangover, with the Chinese plug-in vehicle market dropping 7% year over year (YoY), and the 70,000 units of last month representing less than half of the deliveries of the previous month. Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) sank 22% YoY in July, their worst drop in over two years, while, amazingly, fully electric vehicles (BEVs) still managed to grow, if only by 1%, despite the gloom all around them (the overall market also dropped 4%)


Subsidy Cuts & Tesla Model 3 Shake Up Chinese EV Sales Ranking — June Sales Report

July 23rd, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a slow May, with just 2% growth, June saw the Chinese plug-in vehicle market return to full charge, thanks to some 147,000 registrations, up 72% year over year (YoY). Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) grew faster than that, at +97%, and because the mainstream market is falling (-8%), June’s plug-in vehicle (PEV) share reached a record 8.5%, pulling the PEV market share to 6.3%, well above the 2018 result (4.2%) and on target to reach my forecast of 8% for

June 20th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a strong start of the year, May saw the Chinese plug-in market hit the brakes. With some 104,000 registrations in the month, the plug-in vehicle (PEV) market was up only 2% year over year (YoY). However, because the mainstream market is falling significantly (−17%!), the May PEV share reached an amazing 6.6%, pulling the 2019 PEV market share to 5.6%, well above the 2018 result (4.2%)


China Electric Vehicle Sales Up To 5.4% Market Share

June 2nd, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a first quarter with surging sales, April saw the Chinese plug-in electric vehicle market cool down a little, to some 100,000 registrations. That means it was up only 34% year over year (YoY). Nonetheless, because the mainstream market is still in the red, the April plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) share reached an amazing 6.2%, pulling the PEV market share to 5.4% in 2019 so far, well above the 2018 result (4.2%)


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 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


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

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)


New BYD Tang #1 in August in China — China Electric Car Sales Report

September 28th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

The Chinese plug-in vehicle (PEV) market hit its second best score this year, with some 93,000 units registered in August. However, it was up only 62%. This is a slowdown from the three-digit growth rates of previous months, and is explained by the fact that "new energy vehicle" subsidies were slashed for vehicles with range lower than 150 km. That happened in June, resulting in many small city EVs losing a large number of sales


China’s Electric Car Sales Up 64% In July — #CleanTechnica Report

August 26th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

The Chinese plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market is in summer-chill mode, with some 75,000 units being registered in July, up only 64%. Yes, this is a slowdown from the three-digit growth rates of previous months. It is explained by the fact that "New Energy" subsidies were slashed to vehicles with full-charge driving range lower to 150 km in June, so most small city EVs stopped seeing sales, draining a significant percentage of over PEV sales
