InsideEVs: China production and sales of New Energy Vehicles - April 2016.
InsideEVs reports about another confirmation that New Energy rEVolution is for real in China this time. There are new better EVs are coming into the market and people start buying them. Yesterday we have discussed 10 new EVs in China and that now 28 companies in China are making 51 models of electric cars. Sales in April of full electric cars (BEV) were almost 3 times higher year on year and overtook sales of PHEVs by the factor of 3. If this dynamic continues, we can have the indication that increased range and quality of BEV are finally meeting customers expectations in China. As InsideEVs is pointing out: China's EVs sales by now likely have already surpass total EVs sales in the U.S. in 2015 standing at 116,099. I will add, that Tesla's total production goal for this year is 80,000 - 90,000 of electric cars.
