China's plug-in hybrid vehicle market will enter the final stage

since 2013, the growth rate of plug-in hybrid vehicle sales and its proportion in new energy vehicle sales have gone through an upward and downward stage at the same time. The fall of data shows to a large extent that the rapid development of new energy vehicles and the transition stage of plug-in hybrid have entered the countdown

recently, according to the production and sales data released by the China Automobile Association, the sales volume of new energy vehicles in 2017 was 195000, an increase of 14.4% year-on-year. Among them, the sales volume of pure electric vehicles was 160000, with a year-on-year increase of 26.2%; 35000 plug-in hybrid vehicles, a year-on-year decrease of 19.7%

the sales of pure electric vehicles increased significantly, while plug-in hybrid vehicles began to decline rapidly. In 2016, the sales volume of plug-in hybrid vehicles was 7.9 million, with a year-on-year increase of 30.9%

compared with the improvement of rubber materials, the new energy vehicle market has not only the growth rate of pure electric vehicles is much higher than that of plug-in hybrid vehicles, but also a turning point in the development of plug-in hybrid vehicles, which may mean that China's new energy vehicles will enter the transitional stage or move towards the final stage

new energy vehicles have been in the Chinese market for only a few years, why will the plug-in hybrid vehicle market enter the final stage

in May, 2012, the "12th Five Year" special plan for the development of electric vehicle science and technology "proposed that the development of China's new energy vehicles should be divided into three-step strategies: the gestation period, the introduction period and the growth period, and that the introduction period should end in 2015

development history of new energy vehicles

at the beginning of the whole new energy vehicle development plan, after June 2012, the country launched industrialization projects such as the new energy vehicle industry technology innovation project. Due to the lagging market changes relative to policies, the sales of new energy vehicles in China increased significantly by 2013

sales of new energy vehicles

from 2013 to the end of 2015, plug-in hybrid vehicles and pure electric vehicles have become the two directions for many vehicle enterprises to develop new energy vehicles

during this period, as pure electric vehicles are facing many difficult problems such as charging and range, plug-in hybrid vehicles have gained a leading position in new energy vehicles with their unique advantages. In 2013, the sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles accounted for only 17.2% of new energy vehicles; By 2014, this proportion had reached 39.7%

however, from 2015 to 2016, the development of new energy vehicles in China entered a growth period from the introduction period, and the national subsidy standard for new energy vehicles has changed. By 2016, the subsidy for plug-in hybrid vehicles has been reduced to 30000, coupled with the improvement of pure electric vehicle technology. At this time, the proportion of plug-in hybrid vehicle sales began to decline, and its share in new energy vehicle sales in 2016 was only 19.3%, almost the same as the data in 2013

sales volume of plug-in hybrid mainstream models

from another perspective, when new energy vehicles were in the introduction stage in 2014, the overall sales volume of plug-in hybrid vehicles was close to 30000, of which BYD Qin could be called one of the most mainstream models at that time, and the sales volume of a single model was close to the general sales volume. By 2015, SAIC and BYD had entered the "upsurge period". At this time, in the plug-in hybrid vehicle segment, the mainstream models were only BYD Tang, Qin and Roewe e550

in 2016, many manufacturers called to inquire about relevant equipment, and China's new energy vehicle market officially entered the growth period. At this time, as a transitional stage, the number of plug-in hybrid models has not increased significantly. Many users are very concerned about after-sales service problems when buying change experimental machines. The higher volume is still BYD Tang, Qin and Roewe e550 models, but Volvo S60, trumpchi GA 5 EV and other models are added

it is understood that up to now, China's new energy vehicle market has not launched mainstream plug-in hybrid vehicles in other industries, which further reduced the sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles by 19.7% year-on-year in the first half of 2017

in addition, the data shows that in 2013 and 2014, the sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles increased significantly, once reaching 878.1%; However, from 2015 to 2016, the growth rate also fell, with a growth rate of 18.1%

from 2013 to 2016, whether the proportion of plug-in hybrid models in sales, or their sales growth, there is an upward and downward trend at the same time. These industry data to a certain extent prove that plug-in hybrid models may become dim in the future, and "give way" to pure electric vehicles
