In the past year, the global new energy passenger car market has maintained a rapid growth - total sales of 774,000, an increase of 40%. In this growth rate, this year's new energy passenger car is expected to share in the global passenger car sales break 1%.
In the global new energy passenger cars in the main market, China contributed the largest increase - sales of 320,000, an increase of 86%, becoming the world's new energy passenger car market growth engine. And has led the global development of new energy passenger cars in the US market, only contributed 160,000 sales, the European new energy passenger car sales growth of less than 20%. The Chinese market has become the world's new energy passenger car market, the main battlefield.
In the 2016 global analysis of the new energy passenger car market, we found that market growth is still highly dependent on the policy to promote, which led to the sale of new energy passenger cars are still concentrated in the policy areas of greater intensity. Such as the Chinese market, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hangzhou, the five cities of new energy passenger car sales accounted for 50% of the national market, while the US market, California, a state sales accounted for the new energy passenger cars 50% of sales.
From the market analysis, we can also find that in the new energy passenger car technology routes, pure electric passenger car market share is steadily increasing, in 2015, pure electric passenger cars and plug-in hybrid car sales difference is not Large, respectively, accounted for 53% and 47%. While last year, pure electric passenger car sales accounted for has reached 62%, accounting for an increase of nearly 10 percentage points.
From the perspective of car prices, there are a number of car prices can be remarkable, such as BYD sold more than 10 million new energy passenger cars, multiple brands will also new new energy passenger car belt To the market and achieved good performance, but because the base is small, which future car prices will become the leader of new energy vehicles in the short term is still very difficult to assert.
With the increase in consumer awareness, policy gradually receded, more production models will join the war situation. We believe that at least need to gradually see by 2020, in the new energy passenger car market, who will take the "new" wind and become a real leader. For the next four years the development of new energy passenger car market, we believe that: new energy passenger car sales will gradually expand the sales channels began to sink; more production models will join the market, the low-end market competition will To give consumers more choices. And review the 2016 new energy passenger car development, will help us on the future of the market have more accurate expectations.
In this paper, we have selected China, the United States, Norway, France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, the six countries of the new energy passenger car over the past year, the development of a more detailed study, with a view to the new energy in 2016 Passenger car market development of a more comprehensive review.
