The 6 millionth BYD NEV rolls off the production line

Currently, BYD has nine passenger car plants across China. These factories are situated in Xi’an (Shaanxi province), Jinan (Shandong province), Zhengzhou (Henan province), Changzhou (Jiangsu province), Xiangyang (Hubei province), Hefei (Anhui province), Changsha (Hunan province), Fuzhou (Jiangxi province), and Shenzhen (Guangdong province). These plants supply cars to 58 countries, including China. Moreover, BYD plans to build factories in Thailand, Brazil, etc.

The BYD plant in Zhengzhou has manufactured the six millionth NEV today. It appears to be the recently launched FCB Bao 5 that started deliveries several days ago. The Zhengzhou factory also assembles BYD Seal. As mentioned, BYD took just 3 months to produce 1 million NEVs.

For comparison, it took BYD 13 years to produce 1 million NEVs since the launch of BYD F3 DM in 2008. They broke the second million NEVs threshold much faster in 12 months. The third million required only 6 months. Then, BYD added 2 million produced cars in 9 months. Now, BYD continues to accelerate, manufacturing the 6 millionth NEV. BYD stopped manufacturing ICE cars in April 2022, focusing exclusively on NEVs. This tactic works for them.
