Against the background of the global spread of covid-19 and the tension of the global supply chain, China's auto industry has achieved positive growth against the trend, and new energy vehicles have become one of the bright spots.

New energy vehicles contributed 9 percentage points to the year-on-year growth rate of passenger vehicles throughout the year. In February this year, the penetration rate of self-owned brand new energy vehicles was 38%, and the penetration rate of new energy vehicles among luxury cars was as high as 29.4%.

Policy-driven shift to market-driven new development stage.
In the context of the "dual carbon" goal, in 2021, a series of documents related to new energy vehicles have been issued intensively, which has strongly promoted the development of the industry. The independent brands represented by BYD are leading the reform of the automobile industry by focusing on the national "dual carbon" strategic goal.
