BYD's flagship sedan Han sold 11,087 units in October, up 47 percent year-on-year and up 8 percent from September, data released by the company showed Wednesday.
Cumulative sales of BYD Han have reached 131,679 units since deliveries began last July, according to CnEVPost data.
BYD Han includes the Han EV, an all-electric version with an NEDC range of 605 kilometers, and the Han DM, a hybrid model with a range of only 81 kilometers on pure electric power.
BYD announced Han model sales as a combined figure for both models, with the Han EV selling 8,287 units in October, up 63.9 percent year-on-year, and the Han DM selling 2,800 units, up 12.4 percent year-on-year.
In addition to the Han EV as well as the Han DM, a new version of the model is not far from the market.
According to yiche.com last month, the Han DM-i version is undergoing road tests and looks almost the same as the Han EV and Han DM, except that the rear badge has been changed to Han DM-i.
The model will likely go on sale in the first half of next year, according to the report.
In BYD's product array, the vehicles have EV, DM and DM-i versions, depending on the form of power. Where EV stands for pure electric, DM, as well as DM-i versions, are both hybrid versions, except the latter is more fuel economy-oriented.
BYD sold 81,040 new energy vehicles in October, up 249 percent from a year ago and up 14 percent from September. This included 80,003 passenger cars and 1,037 commercial vehicles.
