China's electrified vehicle fleet tops 2.21 million
Automotive News China | 2018/10/19

China¡¯s fleet of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids topped 2.21 million by the end of September as sales of electrified vehicles continued to surge in the country.

Of the total, EVs accounted for 1.78 million, or nearly 81 percent. The rest were plug-in hybrids, China¡¯s Ministry of Public Security said this week.

Electrified cargo vehicles -- which include trucks, pickups and delivery vans -- approached 254,000, representing 11 percent of the electrified vehicle fleet as of last month.

The ministry released no further details on the domestic electrified vehicle fleet.

Thanks to government subsidies and a car credit program Beijing plans to enact at the beginning of the year, new electrified vehicle sales have surged in China.

For the first nine months, automakers delivered more than 721,000 EVs and plug-in hybrids in China, a jump of 81 percent year on year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. 

The association¡¯s tally includes roughly 541,000 EVs and 181,000 plug-in hybrids. 

Despite the sales surge, electrified vehicles constituted less than 1 percent of China¡¯s vehicle fleet as of September. 

By the end of last month, traditional and electrified vehicles in China totaled 235 million, according to the Ministry of Public Security. 

In the third quarter of this year alone, more than 6.5 million vehicles were added to the fleet, according to the ministry.
