China’s NEV sales surge in February


Sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs) in China surged in February this year amid the country’s efforts to promote automobile consumption, data from an industry association showed.

Last month, the retail sales of China’s new energy passenger cars expanded 61 percent year on year to 439,000 units, according to the China Passenger Car Association.

Data from the association also showed the retail sales of passenger cars in China rose 10.4 percent year on year to reach 1.39 million units in February.

The boom in China’s NEV sector came as the world’s second-largest economy rolled out a raft of policy incentives to spur the development of NEVs.—Xinhua
