China’s electric car leaders predict new energy vehicles will dominate the local market by 2030

New energy vehicles will dominate the world’s largest auto market in about ten years, two executives from major Chinese electric car companies predicted over the weekend. New energy vehicles refer to battery-powered and hybrid cars. The category accounted for more than 10% of new car sales in China in March, and grew to 11.4% in May, said Wang Chuanfu, founder of BYD.

He forecast that the penetration rate would surge to more than 70% in 2030. That’s according to a transcript the company provided of his remarks at the China Auto Chongqing Summit held June 12 and 13.

In May, BYD said its new energy passenger car sales rose 23% from the prior month to 31,681 vehicles, of which just over half — or 18,711 — were powered only by batteries. The company’s Han sedan ranks among the five best-selling new energy vehicles sold in China — just behind Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y for the first five months of the year, according to the China Passenger Car Association.

As the local new energy vehicle market grows, BYD’s Wang said he expects Chinese car brands will be able to account for 60% by 2030, thanks partly to their grasp of core technology.
