BYD reported on Friday that it sold 134,036 new energy vehicles in June, a 314.9% increase from a year earlier and a record-breaking figure despite ongoing supply chain disruptions partly caused by recent Covid lockdowns in China. The automaker’s electric vehicle sales in the first half of 2022 surpassed last year’s entire total of nearly 600,000 units, and the company is now poised to achieve its sales target of 1.5 million EVs for this year. By comparison, Tesla delivered 564,743 vehicles from January until June 2022. [BYD release, in Chinese]
