Shanghai (Gasgoo)- BYD said on July 5 that its vehicle sales in the first half of 2019 edged up 1.59% year on year to 228,072 units, entirely thanks to the robust growth in year-to-date (YTD) sales of new energy vehicles (NEV).

During the first two quarters, the automaker saw its NEV sales skyrocket 94.5% to 145,653 units, counteracting the 44.91% slump falling on fuel-burning vehicle sales.
