|JAC's latest iteration of the i EV model|
The Chinese market had nearly 18.000 EV's new EV's zooming the streets last month, a 62% increase over the same month last year, with the EV market share firmly above 0.8%.
Looking at the models ranking, the leader BYD Tang SUV had a somewhat disappointing month in March, delivering only 3.111 units, it seems the leading EV-maker in China is dedicating some love to its lowest models in the food chain, with sales of the veteran e6 up five fold, to 2.016 units, while the Qin sedan saw the introduction of its BEV version, with 229 units, which added to the 1.143 deliveries of the PHEV version, saw its sales reach 1.372 units, its best result this year, but almost half of what it delivered twelve months ago (2.476 units).
The BAIC E-Series continues firm in Second Place, with the lowest place in the podium on the
As this is a Top 15 ranking, we can dig deeper and signal the good performance of the Tesla Model S, jumping to #8 last month, with the BYD e5 (#11) and the newly arrived Geely Emgrand / Dorsett EV (#12) also impressing.
Looking at the Manufacturers ranking, BYD is firmly at the driving position, but its share was rather surprisingly down 3%, to 39%, is the brand not growing fast enough?
Anyway, far from the leader, we have in Second Place BAIC (13%) and JAC (10%) in Third.
