Last month Wuling sold 33.094 units of the Hong Guang MINI EV and broke another EV sales record in China.
Let’s see the evolution.
- June: 1.048
- July: 7.348
- August: 9.150
- September: 14.495
- October: 20.631
- November: 33.094
- Total: 85.766
If monthly sales keep on rising next year half-million units can be sold in China alone…
- October: 25.000
- November: 30.000
- December: 33.000
Battery suppliers (ordered by battery capacity delivered)
- Great Power
When Wuling decided to have this small electric car powered with cobalt-free LFP batteries delivered by four suppliers, it made it clear that high volume production was expected.

This electric car doesn’t risk having its production constrained by battery supply. Reaching a monthly production of 50.000 units now seems feasible, but will it reach an impressive milestone of 100.000 units?
Nonetheless, even 100.000 monthly units may not be enough to fulfill the high demand this electric car has in China alone.
