Chinese Plug-In EV Market Surges Again In June 2019

BAIC EU-Series with almost 18,000 sales in June is currently the best selling electric car in China. Newbie Changan Eado EV460 scored 7,340.

Plug-in electric car sales in China returned to solid growth in June after just 2% growth in May. Last month, almost 147,000 new passenger NEV sales translated into 72% growth rate at a high 8.5% market share.

Not bad compared to the 8% decline of general passenger car sales in China. It seems also that June’s result was the second-best ever!

The first half of 2019 closed with total sales of roughly 633,000 at an average market share of 6.3%.
