China August 2014

The BAIC E150 EV, a shrunken Merc B-Class, a european-styled MPV, shined this August

Back in Action Edition

The chinese EV market resumed the growth path that it had made this year, bringing record numbers to the table, with more than 5.600 units sold, pulling the EV Share up 0.03% to 0.25%, three times above the numbers recorded last year (0,08%).

Looking at the models ranking, the #1 Kandi EV continues to impress, just like the #2 BYD Qin (New record, now at 1.316 units), while the #4 Zotye E20 seems to have found its cruise speed around 700 units/month.

The ranking now goes down to #7, where we find the BAIC E150 EV, which had a brilliant month last month, coming close that month to the current #6, the BYD e6.

  2. What's the basis of the estimate for Tesla? It is just a wild guess, a shot in the dark?

    2. Unlike other carmakers that follow the regular sales curve of each market, Tesla has its unique sales curve, which translates in a slow sales month in the first month of each quarter, the second is a bit better, and the third month of each quarter is a sales peak, in order to keep stockholders happy in each quarterly earnings report.

  6. According to an article appearing in EV World the number of Model S imported to China so far is over 2,800 cars with some 4,000 reservations yet to be filled.
