China News Service, Beijing, December 11 (Reporter Liu Yuying and Yan Xiaohong) Ye Shengji, deputy secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, stated in Beijing on the 11th that China's new energy vehicle sales are expected to increase by more than 30% to 1.8 million in 2021.

  According to data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers on the same day, from January to November, the production and sales of new energy vehicles were 1.119 million and 1.109 million, with output falling by 0.1% year-on-year, and the decline narrowed by 9.1 percentage points from January to October. , Ended the downward trend.

  At a salon meeting held that day, Ye Shengji stated that the sales of new energy vehicles in November reached 200,000. If this momentum is maintained in December, China's new energy vehicle sales will reach 1.3 million in 2020, an increase of nearly 8%.

  "This year's sales of new energy vehicles have exceeded expectations, and there is a big surprise," Ye Shengji said. The sales of new energy vehicles in the first half of the year are worrying, but the'new energy vehicles going to the countryside' played a very good role in driving.

More than 60 vehicles from nearly 30 companies have joined the new energy vehicles to the countryside. According to preliminary estimates, the sales of the entire new energy vehicle market will be close to 200,000.

  Ye Shengji believes that new energy vehicles will have "bigger surprises" next year, with a growth rate of 30% or even 40%, which means that sales will reach 1.8 million vehicles.

This is mainly due to the gradual maturity of the new energy vehicle industry chain, the optimization of the use environment, the increase in consumer acceptance, and the predictability of related policies.

  The recovery of the entire automobile market this year has also exceeded expectations.

Ye Shengji said that when the entire industry was at its most pessimistic, he had predicted that the annual sales would fall by 25%, and after June, he believed that the decline would be controlled within 10%.

From January to November, China's automobile production and sales were 22.372 million and 22.47 million, both falling within 3%. "It is expected that the sales decline by the end of the year can be controlled within 2%."

  Ye Shengji predicts that in 2021, automobile production and sales are expected to achieve a growth of 3% to 5%, and the production and sales volume will exceed 26 million in proportion.
