  1. Thank you for making this page (BYD Yuan) and the entire website available; it really is a great source and resource.

    I was hoping that the BYD Yuan 2018 Sales data would be available by now. Does know when it might become available, or why it is delayed?

    1. Hi John,

      that’s right, January 2018 sales figures for the Chinese market have already been published, but CAAM (China Association of Automobile Manufacturers) did not report sales for the Yuan this month. They did for the other BYD models, so it could either be a glitch in their reporting or there could have been a constraint in the deliveries, as our data reflects wholesale deliveries from the manufacturer to the dealers, not retail registrations.

      1. Hi Bart; Thank you for clarifying. I guess we’ll understand the situation better some time next week, meaning that either the Feb. sales volume data for the BYD Yuan will or won’t be reported by CAAM in a timely manner. I’ve noticed that some manufacturers report model level monthly sales volume data via their websites or via their official filings on the stock exchange websites on which their companies are listed. Unfortunately BYD does not. Oh well, a good opportunity to practice patience 😉

  2. I see the BYD Yuan Feb. sales data point is now in; only 114 cars sold in Feb.? Wow that’s a big drop in sales.
