Chinese auto giant BYD continues its relentless electric vehicle ascent, crossing over 300,000 new energy vehicle (NEV) sales again in November per just-released Hong Kong Stock Exchange filings. Hitting 301,903 electric car deliveries last month brings 2023 year-to-date volume near 2.7 million at 2,683,374 units.
Within November’s monthly figures, a staggering 301,378 represented pure passenger vehicles like the Han or Tang SUVs between plug-in hybrid and full battery electric drivetrains. For 2023 overall, passenger NEVs now approach 2.7 million at 2,672,728 units.
Breaking down powertrain types further, November saw 170,150 pure electrics shipping to customers alongside 131,228 plug-in hybrids. Yearly cumulative deliveries stand at 1.4 million pure electric vehicles, with plug-in hybrids not far behind at nearly 1.3 million.
Demonstrating global ambition, 30,629 of November’s NEV passenger vehicle deliveries reached international destinations beyond home Chinese markets. BYD also installed nearly 17 gigawatt-hours of new automotive and grid storage batteries last month, inching 2023’s total over 133 GWh.
On track to potentially triple last year’s NEV volumes, BYD continues steadily cementing its position as the world’s electric vehicle leader – showing no signs of ceding ground to rivals anytime soon.
