BYD built its six millionth new energy vehicle (NEV) at its Zhengzhou factory today (Friday 24 November).

The Chinese term NEV encompasses hybrid, plug-in hybrid and BEV models.

BYD built its five millionth NEV just three months ago.

The nominated milestone six millionth NEV was a BAO 5 hybrid SUV from the Fangchengbao sub brand.

BYD also said it had set an October monthly sales record, selling 300,000 NEVs.

The automaker has adopted a dual approach of exports and local production to “accelerate the global presence of new energy passenger vehicles”.
