BAIC BJEV is among a number of Chinese automakers that suffered sharp downturn in January. The Spring Festival holiday, a traditional off-season for auto sale, came earlier than the previous year, leading to the fewer demands. Besides, auto sales in December 2019 were inflated by the discounts offered by dealers to boost sales around the “Double 12” online shopping day and the Christmas holiday. The outbreak of new coronavirus has further worsened the market climate.
Last year, the Beijing-based NEV maker saw its annual sales fall 4.69% from a year earlier to 150,601 units, while it was still honored the national champion for the seventh year in a row by full-year BEV sales.
In a bid to move upscale, the company has made the higher-priced EU Series serve as the major sales contributor instead of the EC Series. Saddled with the NEV subsidy phase-out and market slowdown, BJEV still fulfilled restructuring of product lineup with a wide-ranging segment coverage.
At the 10th anniversary held last month, BAIC BJEV released the development roadmap for the next decade. Ma Fanglie, BJEV’s president, said the company is ambitious to complete more than three BEV-focused platforms and develop over 10 NEV series that embrace 40 all-new products so as to satisfy people's travelling demands in various scenarios.
