The Chery eQ1 hits a new volume record just under 9.000 sales.
There is now a New Energy May 2019 article here.
After hitting the brakes in May (-1.7%), the New Energy market in China is back with a vengeance, up 184.8% in June to an all-time record 211.378 units, the first time this segment crosses the symbolic 200.000 monthly unit milestone. This means the H1 2019 tally is now exactly double that of 2018 at 735.535 (+101%). Keep in mind that in China, New Energy vehicles include electric, hydrogen, PHEV and hybrid models, and in this update we are referring to retail sales including imports as these offer a much more complete picture of New Energy sales than wholesales alone.
It’s a Chinese affair atop the brands ranking with BYD (+90.3%), Roewe (+184.3%), Changan (+1320%), BAIC BJEV (+207%) and Geely (+516.3%) monopolising the Top 5 ahead of Toyota (-9.4%), Chery (+755.4%) and Honda (+291.4%). Great Wall’s EV brand Ora is up to #11 Xpeng ranks #19, Weltmeister #22, Neta #23 and NIO #26. In the models ranking, the BAIC EU-Series takes the lead above the Geely Emgrand EC7 PHEV, Changan Eado EV, BYD e5 and Chery eQ1. In fact the Toyota Corolla Hybrid (#7) is the only foreign nameplate in the Top 11, with the Ora R1 up 18 spots on May to #11, the Tesla Model 3 breaking its volume record at #12 and the new JAC iEVS4 up 34 ranks to #22.
