BYD F3 sales soar 143 percent y-o-y in April
BEIJING, May 14, 2009 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
Chinese automaker BYD Auto
sold 32,095 vehicles in April, with its F3 model sales hitting new
high of 22,721 units, up 143 percent from a year earlier, according
to the latest data from the China Passenger Car Association.
The sales surge was mainly due to its short delivery
term, and the sales promotion at early April as well.
Currently, many automakers have postponed the delivery
term to about one month upon concerns over limited production
capacity and market downturn.
In contrast, BYD Auto added a new painting line and kept
expanding production capacity this year. At present, it only takes
two weeks for customers to get the car after placing an order, thus
encouraging purchases of the model.
