China Leads Electric Vehicle Market

PUNE, India -- In 2015, global and Chinese electric vehicle markets were still in the accelerated growth phase; wherein, the global electric vehicle (EV & PHEV) sales volume reached 549,000, increasing by 72.83% year on year; China sold 331,100 electric vehicles, with a year-on-year surge of 343%. From January to February of 2016, the sales volume in China totaled 35,700, going up 1.7 times year on year and marking the sustainable growth.

Affected by multiple factors such as environmental requirements, new technologies and business promotion, the future global and Chinese electric vehicle markets will maintain a rapid development pace. Global and China's sales volume is expected to exceed the 2 million mark in 2019 and 2020 respectively, and China will become the world's leading electric vehicle (EV & PHEV) market.

Passenger Vehicle Market: The demand for plug-in hybrid vehicles which are more in line with the current consumer habits is growing radically, with a rising market share. In 2015, the sales volume amounted to 63,700, with 30.8% market share; in the first two months of 2016, it climbed to 9,727 with 41.2% market share. Chinese plug-in hybrid passenger vehicle manufacturers mainly refer to BYD, SAIC Roewe, GAC Trumpchi, BMW Brilliance, Volvo and the like. With two models --- Qin and Tang, BYD garners the overwhelming share in this market, namely 79% in 2015 and 80% in the first two months of 2016. In future, joint ventures will perform more actively; FAW-Volkswagen (Golf plug-in, Bora plug-in, Magotan plug-in), Shanghai GM (LaCrosse plug-in), Honda (Accord plug-in), Dongfeng Peugeot, Dongfeng Yulong, DongfengYueda Kia (K5 plug-in) plan to launch plug-in hybrid models in 2020.

BAIC, SAIC, BYD, Yutong and other powerful companies have also targeted this market, which will intensify the market competition.
