BYD's oil-fueled vehicle unit posted a 63.72% plunge over the prior-year period, accounting for only 9.9% of the company's overall sales. Due to the six straight months of year-on-year decrease, the company's sales of cars running on traditional fuel dipped 32.04% for the first ten months.
The robust growth was wholly attributable to the 249.05% hike in new energy vehicle (NEV) sales. Notably, the sales of new energy passenger vehicles (NEPVs) zoomed up 262.91% over a year ago to 80,003 units last month, which made the year-to-date NEPV sales top 410,000 units.
Of the NEPVs sold in Oct., 38,771 units were DM models (namely, PHEVs), representing a 444.08% remarkable increase year-over-year thanks to the driving forces from the DM-i models.
