EV, plug-in hybrid deliveries continue surge

Sales of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids in China have accelerated this year, surging 350 percent from a year earlier to 18,054 vehicles in August.

The latest monthly tally includes 12,085 EVs, a sixfold increase from the same month last year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Plug-in hybrid sales also advanced 160 percent year on year to 5,969 vehicles last month.

For the first eight months, China's EV and plug-in hybrid deliveries totaled 108,654 vehicles, nearly triple the number sold in the same period last year.

For the year to date, automakers have sold 68,316 EVs and 40,338 plug-in hybrids. The association did not record any sales of fuel cell vehicles.

Only EVs, plug-in hybrids and fuel-cell powered vehicles built in China qualify for government subsidies.

Major Chinese cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou now ration license plates for new gasoline and diesel vehicles to control pollution and congestion. That has prompted an increasing number of consumers to buy new EVs and plug-in hybrids.
