BYD plug in sales grow globally, but US future remains cloudy

Coming off a year where it leapfrogged Tesla Motors in global electric vehicle sales, China-based BYD isn’t shy about touting its green-vehicle technology and growing popularity. When it comes to specifics about when Americans can expect to see the company’s plug-in vehicles en masse, however, the company is making about as much noise as an electric vehicle. It’s being awfully quiet, in other words.

Last year, BYD more than doubled its global plug-in vehicle sales to almost 62,000 vehicles. By comparison, Tesla delivered 50,580 vehicles in 2015. The difference is about half of those Teslas were sold in the US, which accounted for a smattering of BYD electric vehicles earmarked specifically for fleet use. Indeed, most of BYD’s plug-in models such as the e6 and the Qin were sold in China.
