Now that NIO, XPeng, and Li Auto have all gone public in the US, the three new powerhouses are now on a rapid rise in sales after a difficult period, the report notes.
The judgment was based on the fact that China's new-energy vehicle sales are accelerating in 2020, shaking off the effects of Covid-19, the report said.
China's new-energy vehicle sales remained at around 1.05 million units from 2018 to 2019. As we enter 2020, new energy vehicle sales are rapidly recovering from the epidemic, although the impact of Covid-19 has significantly reduced year-over-year sales in the first few months of the overall auto market.
The year-on-year growth rate of new energy vehicle sales has turned from negative to positive from July and growth is accelerating. Domestic new energy vehicle sales were 16.0 million units in October, up 104.5 percent year-on-year, the report said.
