Tesla Model Y became the best-selling SUV in China in June, smashing its rivals to pieces. In addition, the electric SUV became the second best-selling SUV in the first six months of 2022, despite a significant slowdown in production in Q2.
Tesla Model Y sales in China in June were 52,150 units, up 348.7% from 11,623 units a year ago, according to data from the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). It makes it the best-selling SUV in the country in the past month. That was an impressive 20,363 more than its nearest competitor was able to sell, which was BYD Song, placing second. The Chinese SUV registered only 31,787 units. A lot of automakers in China have been affected by the COVID-19 lockdown, which halted production. Disruptions in the supply chain prevented the restoration of production until at least mid-May. Nevertheless, Tesla, as always, showed its professionalism and masterfully coped with the difficulties. Already in June, Giga Shanghai managed to produce a record number of cars for the factory.
In third place is the Honda CR-V with 24,326 registrations, up 62.9% from last year. In fourth place is Great Wall Motor's Haval H6 with 21,040 units in June, down 21.4% from a year earlier. Closing out the top 5 is Changan CS75 with 19,696 registrations. It is important to keep in mind that the list includes all SUVs in the automotive market, including electric vehicles and vehicles with internal combustion engines.
