2,664? That's strange, as sales of 3,984 units of the “EV160” EV model alone were reported for one month, August 2018, by China Daily, quoting stats of the China Passenger Car Association.
On top of that, cleantechnica.com reports a total of 7,981 Hawtai NEV units (EV160 & xEV) for October 2018.
In any case, it's obvious there is an ongoing global race for bragging rights as number one in NEVs.
