BYD Sales Channels

Hi All,

Could anyone please let me know why does BYD have four different sales networks: A1, A2, A3, A4.

Some cars are actually common to these networks: S8 is part of both A1 and A2 network, so there's no solid differentiation like that of Toyota and Lexus or Cadillac and Chevy?

We know that China's got a bad case of regional protectionism that's a thorn in the side of all medium to large manufacturers. So I'm wondering if there's a relationship here and someone is trying to overcome it .

So can someone once and for all explain BYD's dealership networks.
I know this:

1.Certain cars are sold only on certain networks.
2. BYD has 1100 dealerships now.
3. BYD forces dealerships to compete with each other to improve sales.

But I don't understand how the networks are determined...why do they bunch certain cars with each other?

It doesn't seem to make sense to me that, if a customer walks into an A3 dealership and wants to buy an F3, the customer will have to find another dealer. ---I dont understand why BYD's network strategy works and why it is so revolutionary.
