Chinese manufacturer European passenger car sales by brand

Chinese According to exclusive Schmidt Automotive Research data, SAIC (MG) continues to dominate Chinese-brand passenger car imports to Western Europe so far this year.


Other brands, such as XPeng, slowly see volumes grow but remain all but a blip on the radar.  


SAIC is less exposed as pure-BEV model line-up manufacturers such as BYD (although a PHEV is on the way) to the additional BEV-targeted tariff increase, which is due to be provisionally imposed from July 4th, as it still sees two in three of its regional registrations delivered with an internal combustion engine under the bonnet, according to our latest data analysis.◼︎︎
