This means that the number of new energy vehicles in our country has increased by five million in nearly a year, with an average monthly increase exceeding 400 thousand.
It is worth mentioning that, thanks to policy support, technological research and development, and accelerated market promotion, China’s new energy vehicle market has maintained a high growth trend for a long time. It has become the biggest highlight of the domestic automobile market.
