The news of the summer that China's BYD company has become the world's largest electric vehicle supplier may well be implemented in a corrected capacity in the foreseeable future, as the manufacturer is strikingly increasing the volume of new type of vehicles delivered by the end of the year. By the end of the year, BYD intends to produce 280,000 vehicles each month.
It should be explained that these statistics include not only battery electric vehicles, but also hybrids from the BYD. The production of cars exclusively with internal combustion engines was abandoned as early as March of this year, so all vehicles that have left the company ' s convoy have since been equipped with traction engines in one form or another. According to CNEVpost statistics published, since the beginning of the year, BYD has produced 118,0054 light and light commercial cars with traction motors. Compared to the first nine months of last year, the increase was 249,56%. Of these, 5,82,129 were battery electric vehicles, more than twice as many copies as in the same period last year.
In the third quarter of a new type of BYD vehicle, 5,38704 units were produced, almost twice last year ' s output, and 1.5 times the second quarter ' s output. If we look at September alone, the BYD first delivered 200973 new type passenger vehicles in one month. Of these, 94,941 were battery electric vehicles, 161.5 per cent more than last September ' s total. At this rate of expansion, the BYD will be able to deliver 280,000 new type vehicles every month by the end of the year. Until the results of Tesla, which released more than 365,000 electric vehicles in the third quarter, will be delivered by hand.
At the end of September, BYD began ordering three models of electric vehicles in a number of European countries: Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium. Buyers in Germany, for example, have access to Han's flagship sedan at a cost of Y72000, similar to the estimated full-size Tang crossover and the more accessible compact Atto crossover 3 per y38,000. BYD's order portfolio, formed mainly by Chinese consumers, now has 700,000 electric vehicles. The waiting time for their delivery has reached four or five months. Since July, BYD has been able to increase the number of electric vehicles sold for export from 4,026 to 7,736 units per month. The company is also planning to enter Japan's market.
