BYD new-energy vehicle sales slump in H1
China's leading new-energy vehicle (NEV) manufacturer BYD saw its NEV sales tumble in the first half of 2020, company data showed.
The firm sold 60,677 NEVs in the January-June period, down 58.34 percent from the same period last year, BYD said in a filing to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
