While the American automaker delivered 466 thousand electric cars, BYD sold 352 thousand of them. If hybrid cars were to sweat as well, BYD would overtake Tesla with 703,500 cars.
This year, BYD announced that it will invest billions of reals (nearly 14 billion crowns) in Brazil in the construction of a conduit, which will be its first conduit outside of Asia.
electric cars are still popular in the European market. Now, however, the European Commission is concerned with the low prices of electric cars from them, and accused Beijing of flooding the world market with electric cars, whose prices are artificially low thanks to huge state subsidies.
The survey, which could result in the introduction of sanctions, caused an analyst to warn of retaliatory steps on the part of Beijing and such a disapproving reaction from leading workers of the Dutch industry, who claim that the competitive advantage of this industry was not caused by subsidies.

When Laima Springeov-Janssenov decided to exchange her French gasoline-powered sports utility vehicle (SUV) for an electric car, she called models from the German Volvo brand and the Japanese Nissan brand.
However, the added equipment of the Volvo electric cars, which she wanted to have, would have stopped her from starting, while the Nissan electric cars, according to her, did not offer anything that would have captivated her.

“I’m sorry, Europe. on my better offer,” declared Springeov-Janssenov.
