BYD möchte EV Märkte erobern

By Duncan Mil

June 8, 2023 - Chinas größter Hersteller von Elektro Autos, BYD, glaubt daß er mit niedrigen Preisen und Produktion eigener Batterien und Chips zum globalen EV Führer werden kann. Verkäufe von Batterie EVs überstiegen 7,68 Millionen in 2022.

The Warren Buffett-backed automaker, the nation’s biggest car brand, is expanding its battery EV sales to Australia, Brazil, Israel and Thailand.

BYD (Build Your Dreams) recently entered Mexico, Spain and the UK, and CEO, Wang Chuanfu, has now set his eyes on Italy. Chuanfu is vying to transform his company -- already the biggest EV producer in China -- into a significant global player in new-energy vehicles.

BYD manufactures its batteries and its semiconductors: it’s now the world’s second-largest cell maker. Last year BYD took a 16.1 per cent global battery market share behind rival Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd’s 33.4 per cent.

BYD sold 1.86 million new-energy vehicles last year and increased its global workforce to 570,060, about 200,000 more than the world’s number-one automaker, Toyota Motor Corp.
