After a record-breaking September (104,900 constituent electric agent sales), one would anticipate that the bazaar would booty some time to breathe in October, but that wasn’t the case, with abutting to 120,000 registrations aftermost month, breaking the antecedent almanac by a cogent allowance (14%). Overall, October 2018 electric agent sales were up 85% year over year (YoY).
If we extrapolate this advance amount until the end of the year, we would accept December peaking at some 155,000 units and the 2018 sales extensive 1 actor units. In one year. And to anticipate that 2017 was the aboriginal year that constituent cartage accomplished 1 actor sales globally. Woah.
With all this connected growth, the constituent electric agent (PEV) allotment hit addition best best, catastrophe the ages with 5.8%, while the 2018 allotment rose to 3.6% share, a new almanac and able-bodied aloft the 2.1% of 2017. With sales accepted to abide growing until December, the 2018 PEV allotment could end arctic of 4%, and December could ability 7%.
With PEV quotas to be accomplished abutting year, adopted brands are starting to put in austere PEV accomplishment in this arena, but their allotment is still ashore at 6%. Of this babyish cake, 2 allotment credibility accord to BMW, the new acknowledged adopted brand, 2 allotment credibility accord to Tesla, and the absolute manufacturers allotment the final 2%.
In October, the headlining account was the BAIC EC-Series surging to over 20,000 units, assault everyone’s expectations, while burglary the month’s top atom from BYD’s Dynamic Duo (Tang and Yuan).
Here are October’s top 5 best affairs models:
#1 — BAIC EC-Series: The little EV is aback with a vengeance, with the EC-Series registering a record 20,648 units aftermost month, up 83% YoY. That led to its aboriginal best agent bays back May. Accepting baffled the antecedent best best (15,719 units, aftermost November) by a ample margin, BAIC’s EV continues to agitate the Chinese market, extensive a top 20 position in the boilerplate baronial for the aboriginal time. The revised architecture and bigger specs (new 30 kWh battery) accustomed the EC-Series to abide a accepted best in Chinese megacities. It was additionally helped by a aggressive amount ($25,000, afore subsidies).
#2 — BYD Tang PHEV: Afterwards six months on the market, the second-generation Tang seems to accept begin its cruise-speed sales amount — about 6,000 units/month — and concluded the ages with a almanac 6,037 registrations. Sales should abide able for BYD’s acknowledged flagship, and new almanac sales could still be accomplished this year, at atomic until the BEV adaptation of the Tang lands. As for the accepted Tang PHEV’s specs, BYD’s sports SUV saw the array abound to 24 kWh, arch to an added 100 km ambit (62 mi NEDC), or about 70 km (44 mi) real-world range. In the ability department, things backward the same, with some 500 hp and 0–100 kms/h in beneath than 5 secs. All for CNY 279,800 / $40,816.
#3 — BYD Yuan EV: We all knew that BYD’s new babyish crossover was destined for success, and with a almanac 5,803 deliveries in October in its fifth ages on the market, BYD’s new babyish is active up to expectations. Will the Yuan be the fiercest adversary abutting year to the all-conquering BAIC EC-Series? I assumption it will depend added on BYD’s ability/willingness to accomplish them in aggregate than absolute demand, back it is sitting on the amphitheater of the two fastest affairs segments (compact crossovers and EVs). With incomparable specs (42 kWh battery, 305 km/190 mi NEDC range, 174 hp motor) for the amount ($25,000), BYD ability accept begin in this new archetypal its brilliant player, consummate what it is already a able lineup.
#4 — Hawtai EV160: The automaker’s aliment and adulate burghal EV almost able the subsidies cut aboriginal this Summer, by presenting 5 km added ambit (155 km NEDC) than the subsidy minimum (150 km). That was acknowledgment to a 21 kWh battery, and sales accept reflected this improvement. Sales benefitted from the bargain competition, as the little EV hit a almanac 5,736 units in October. With basal specs (41 hp lawnmower motor) and design, Hawtai is application a bargain amount (CNY 102,800 / $14,812) in adjustment to attraction carsharing and added fleet-buying companies.
#5 — Chery eQ: Chery was one of the Chinese brands to bet aboriginal on plug-ins, accepting won the archetypal appellation three times in a row (2011, ’12, ’13) with its tiny QQ3 EV. Now, the automaker is aggravating to achieve appliance with the eQ, the airy (and material) almsman to the QQ3, and the archetypal registered 5,547 units in the aftermost ages (a new year best). A agent marketed to burghal dwellers, for $24,000 afore incentives, you get a blue burghal EV with a 22.3 kWh array accouterment aloof abundant ambit (200 km / 125 afar NEDC) to awning the needs of the urban boscage (and subsidy requirements).
In a almanac month, there were affluence of changes, the three best important actuality the BYD e5 aggressive to #4 acknowledgment to a almanac 4,460 units and the Chery eQ aggressive to #6 while the acceleration and acceleration of the Hawtai EV160 continues, with the little EV jumping two spots to #8.
Hawtai EVs are a hot account appropriate now, not alone did the EV160 hit a almanac achievement (5,736 units) aftermost month, but the #20 xEV bunched crossover additionally denticulate a almanac aftereffect (2,245 units), acknowledging the acceptable moment of the brand. Hawtai is acceptable a array of aphotic horse. While anybody has their eyes focused on BYD, BAIC, SAIC, and Geely, Hawtai does its job off the alarm and in October registered 9,000 units, authoritative it the 3rd best affairs EV brand. Will we see it go afterwards BYD and BAIC soon?
BYD’s new babies abide on their way to the top 10, with the Tang PHEV jumping 3 spots to #11 while its abate sibling, the Yuan EV, is now #15. If the aboriginal archetypal has its eyes on the #8 or #9 spot, the additional is accomplishing its best to ability #10, which would accomplish 5 (yes, 5!) BYDs in the top 10.
Another archetypal animated aftermost ages was the BAIC EU-Series, which rose 2 positions to #13.
Outside the top 20, a lot is activity on in the ample auto class. The BMW 530e registered 2,164 units, with the German auto acceptable not alone the best affairs constituent in its category, but additionally the best assuming adopted model, in the #22 spot.
The Nio ES8 continues with its bit-by-bit assembly access up (2,060 registrations in October) and was already afresh the best affairs affluence SUV aftermost month, with the Tesla Archetypal X carrying in the low hundreds. The new startup archetypal still has a attempt at removing Tesla from the annual class administration position, as it is now beneath than 2,000 units abaft the American sports SUV.
Another archetypal on the acceleration is the GAC Trumpchi GE3. With 1,592 registrations aftermost month, it had its best ages in its 17 ages career. Is GAC assuredly dispatch up production?
Looking at the architect ranking, BYD (20%, up 1%) is a adequate leader, acknowledgment to the new Tang and Yuan, while runner-up BAIC (15%, up 2%) is assuredly profiting from the EC-Series sales beverage to balance bazaar share. In third place, the Shanghai-based Roewe (11%) holds the aftermost abode on the podium, with a cogent advantage over #4 Chery (6% share).
This was a apathetic ages apropos new models, with the alone new face actuality the…
Skywell Chuangyezhe MPV EV — Basically a van with windows from the able agent specialist Skywell. It is the aboriginal commuter EV from the maker. The new archetypal joins a alternation of added big MPVs/vans that babyish shuttle services, but with no abundant success. Attesting to the alcove cachet of this blazon of vehicle, if this new archetypal gets to 100 units/month, it will become the class best seller.
Nevertheless, it highlights the abyss of EVs in China, as there is acutely a constituent accessible for every agent class and niche, no amount how babyish it is. Besides hatchbacks, sedans, and crossovers of all prices and sizes, there are additionally electric analeptic trucks (Dongfeng Rich EV), sports cars (BAIC Arcfox 7), several MPVs, base wagons (Roewe Ei5) — you name it.
