BYD, Tesla’s Record Sales Lead China EV Surge
(Bloomberg) — New-energy vehicle sales in China retained their strong momentum in September, led by record sales from local automaker BYD Co. Ltd. and U.S. electric-car giant Tesla Inc.
Total NEV sales, which include pure-electric cars and plug-in hybrids, rose 83% from a year earlier to 611,000 units, China Passenger Car Association data released Tuesday show. BYD sold just over 200,000 vehicles for the first time, while Tesla delivered a record 83,135 cars after upgrading production capacity at its Shanghai factory, including 5,522 for overseas markets.
