BYD seeks to sell 50,000 electric cars in Mexico

MEXICO - BYD, one of the world's leading electric car manufacturers, will seek Mexico as one of its main commercial partners in 2024.

In other words, the Chinese manufacturer will seek to market more than 50,000 electric units throughout Mexico by 2024.

To meet this goal, BYD plans to cover 100% of the country with more than 50 new electric vehicle distributors.

Jorge Vallejo, general director of BYD Mexico, indicated that three new agencies will be launched shortly by May 2024.

"We are opening three new agencies this month in Culiacán, Sinaloa; Puebla, Puebla; as well as in Cancun, Quintana Roo," he revealed.

Currently, BYD has a presence through distributors and agencies in Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Querétaro, Sonora and Nuevo León.

Vallejo pointed out that through this sustained expansion, the goal for 2024 would be to market 50,000 electric cars.

However, the challenge for 2025 would be to double these figures by exceeding 100,000 units with a view to becoming the top 3 nationally in the marketing of both electric and combustion cars.

"It is already the number one brand in car sales in the world, of new energy vehicles in the world. In Mexico, it will surely also be very soon," he predicted.

Vallejo added that one of the Chinese manufacturer's plans is also to make electric vehicles accessible in Mexico.

"A clear objective we have is to democratize the use of electric vehicles in the country," he said.

According to Vallejo, the Dolphin Mini is one of the most accessible electric vehicle models manufactured by BYD in the market.

Finally, he added that the philosophy of this Chinese company involves technological innovation, engineering, design and quality during the manufacturing processes.
