Similar to Tesla, Wang Chuanfu, CEO of BYD said at a senior executive meeting that BYD can't be simply defined as a battery company or a car manufacturer, but should be positioned as a provider of a set of new energy solutions. He also added that BYD will gain revenue of RMB 1 trillion by around 2025. Therefore, BYD will conduct a great reform in their organizational structure, saying that it will establish an organizational structure of business group + business division, which will enable all the groups to take their own professional advantages to enlarge sales growth.
It is also revealed that BYD will split the battery, parts, onboard software, mold businesses, etc. to be independent departments. BYD is expected to have a battery sales surge if these independent departments start to supply products to consumers.
