The Han EV has an average sales price of RMB 260,000 yuan or more, and the Han top model accounts for 60 percent of overall sales, BYD said.

Among Han owners, 67 percent are already owners of luxury or ultra-luxury cars, with a large proportion of people with high education and high income.

BYD announced on May 19 that its one millionth new energy vehicle officially rolled off the production line, making it the first Chinese car company to cross this historic threshold in new energy vehicle sales.

BYD's one millionth new energy vehicle is the Han EV. Lawrence Ho, son of the late Macau gambling king Stanley Ho, became the car's owner.
