It might seem odd to post a March article regarding China just when a few days ago another post showed sales in the same market regarding April, but thanks to an anonymous tip, i can post a comprehensive and accurate ranking regarding the three first months of electric car sales in China, something still rare these days.
And what a fascinating ranking it is, with just two foreign cars present (Tesla Model S and Chevrolet Volt, both in #10), this is something of a New Territory for eyes outside China.
1. BYD Qin - Something of a Chinese Tesla, this PHEV performance sedan (0-100 km/h in 5.9s) has landed with a splash and it's continuing to grow sales month after month.
