Chinese EV Sales Ranking for 2012

While doubling the size it was in 2011, the Chinese market for plug-in electric cars remained extremely small last year. According to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, automakers based in China delivered only about 12,000 high-speed pure electrics and 1,500 plug-in hybrids in 2012, which, combined, accounted for 0.826% of the 15,495,200 passenger cars sold.

The electric Chery QQ supmermini, selling for about 40,000 Yuan after rebates, took nearly half of the EV market. The runner-up was JAC’s iev. The electric version of the J3 subcompact sedan sold 2,485 units. The much-hyped BYD e6 came in third with 2,091 deliveries.
