BYD is finally selling more BEVs than a year ago, but plug-in hybrids continue a free fall.
July 2020 unfortunately did not bring the long-awaited year-over-year growth of BYD plug-in electric car sales in China.
The Chinese company sold some 13,801 plug-in electric cars, which is 16% less than a year ago and about 46% of the brand’s total car volume.
Since the all-new BYD Han just entered the market with 1,205 units in July, maybe August will finally be a positive month. BYD would have to sell more than 16,100 to note growth.

Most of the sales are all-electric cars and as we can see, the BEV category actually is up for the first time after 10-months of decline. Plug-in hybrids have been going down for 18 consecutive months.
After the first 7 months, total sales were 71,248, down 55% year-over-year.
