Fitch Says EVs Will Grab 35% of 2023 China Car Sales – SCMP


Fitch Ratings says new-energy vehicles will continue to see strong growth next year as more motorists ditch petrol cars, with the rating agency forecasting that electric vehicles will account for 35% of car sales on the mainland next year, up from 27% this year and 15% in 2021, a report by the South China Morning Post says.
