After an amazing September, where the numbers reached unheard heights (11.000 units), the Chinese EV market is back to more normal numbers, with close to 7.000 units, which still the second best selling month ever, pulling the EV Share yet again to 0,37%.
These are impressive numbers, with the BYD Qin beating its sales record for
The third best selling model in October was the Zotye E20, once again above the 1.000 mark, with 1.021 sales and looking to catch the YTD Third Spot this year.
Looking at Tesla the number estimated is more a Leap of Faith than a true estimate, there's no way of knowing if America's favourite brand has shifted away from the average 500 units, but considering waning sales in Europe and the average numbers in North America, and also reports that Tesla has some 3.000 units in transit(!), i believe sales for Tesla in Asia will surge until the end of the year, so it wouldn't be a surprise if sales started to rise in China.
A final reference to BAIC, with a record 696 sales last month, it looks that the E150 EV is finally delivering to a level of its promises. It needs too, now that BMW, Volkswagen and others are now seriously looking to sell EV's in China.
