Geely sold 12,239 BEVs including battery swap-enabled models in February, up 1,430 percent from 800 in the same month last year.
The Geely Auto Group sold 14,501 new energy vehicles (NEVs) in February, up 471 percent from 2,539 units in the same month last year, but down 19 percent from 17,928 units in January, it said in figures released today on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
Geely's total sales of all vehicles in February were 78,478 units, up 2 percent from 77,221 units a year earlier but down 46 percent from 146,380 units in January.
The company said this was mainly affected by a shortage of supply of electronic stability program (ESP) chips and the Chinese New Year holiday.

The company and Lifan Technology, which it backs, formed a joint venture, Chongqing Livan Automotive Technology Co in late January to put more effort into the battery swap market.

The Livan brand sold 1,618 vehicles in February, Geely data released today showed.
