BAIC's NEV subsidiary BJEV saw its car sales in July reached 12,509 units, significantly growing 78% year on year, while tumbling 52% compared with the previous month, the parent company BAIC BluePark New Energy Technology Co.,Ltd reported on August 7.

The month-on-month sales slump should be partly attributed to the three-month grace period for new NEV subsidy policy, which made numerous market demands overdrawn before the ending data June 25.

The Beijing-based EV manufacturer said its year-to-date sales jumped 28% over the prior-year to 77,668 units, completing 35.3% of the 220,000-unit annual sales target it set for 2019.
