This post was originally published on this site

BYD increased plug-in electric car sales every month since June 2018

In October 2018, sales of plug-in electric cars by BYD amounted in China to 26,066, which is a new record (over 1,000 more than in September) at an annual growth rate of 121%!

BYD managed to set five straight records for sales and we wouldn’t mind seeing further increases – maybe above 30,000 monthly by the end of this year?

Plug-in car sales for the second month in a row stand at 56% of total BYD car sales.
