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.

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%)

There are plenty of misconceptions running around about Chinese car quality. But with many ancient artifacts that survived thousands of years buried in the elements, it's no wonder the Chinese can also deliver the level of quality displayed at the 2019 Shanghai auto show.

November 24th, 2018 | by Sebastian Blanco

The Guangzhou Motor Show is like the Chinese auto industry as a whole. It's huge, it's confusing (to a foreigner there for the first time), and it's full of electric vehicles. As someone who's been paying attention to the North American and, to a lesser extent, European EV scene for a dozen years, visiting the show in Guangzhou this past week was a revelation.
