China’s plug-in hybrid electric vehicle market to sustain boom in 2023
With China’s gradual phase-out of subsidies on new energy vehicle (NEV) purchases, the price-performance advantage of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) is becoming prominent. China’s PHEV market first boomed in 2021, with annual sales of 577,000 units, soaring 171.4% from a year ago. In 2022, China’s PHEV market maintained its upward momentum, and the sales in most months of the year achieved positive on-month growth except for a decline in April due to the impacts of widely circulating COVID-19 infections across the country. After September 2022, the sales of PHEVs showed an inflection point as the vehicle purchase cycle came under the downward pressure. Nonetheless, the PHEVs’ penetration rate was decent. In November 2022, the sales of PHEVs reached 163,100 units in China, whose penetration rate was 9.9% in the passenger vehicle market and market share was 24.9% in the NEV market, with both readings hitting record highs.
