Aug. 27, 2019

EVs from BJEV, BYD, Changan and Tesla make up China’s top five by battery capacity deployed

In June 2019, 806 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold BJEV EU-Series battery electric vehicles (“BEVs”) in China, more than double the 349 MWh deployed in the second-ranked BYD Yuan and the 315 MWh deployed in the third-ranked Changan Eado, according to Adamas Intelligence’s latest ‘EV Battery Capacity Monthly’ report (download a sample copy of the monthly report here).

On the back of rising sales in China, the Tesla Model 3 saw 275 MWh of battery capacity deployed in June 2019, putting it in fourth place in China by capacity deployed and making it the only foreign-made EV in China’s top ten.

In fifth place, 229 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold BYD e5 BEVs in June 2019 which, along with the ninth-ranked BYD Qin BEV (not shown in figure below) give BYD three EVs among the top ten in China by battery capacity deployed.

In total, Adamas data indicates that 6.1 GWh of battery capacity was deployed in China in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, a 48% increase over the amount deployed the month prior, and a 115% increase over the amount deployed in June 2018.
