The 11 most beloved cars of Chinese people in 2023, you can never imagine ranking first

Looking back at the Chinese car market in 2023, traditional fuel vehicles saw significant price reductions, while new energy vehicles continued to boom. The intensity of market competition can be described as the highest in history. From the final results, the cumulative sales of domestic passenger cars in 2023 were 21.703 million units, an increase of 5.6% compared to 2022, and the number of available models also reached 1457. So in such an “involution” year of 2023, who are the 11 favorite cars of Chinese consumers?

No.11 Hongguang MINIEV -237800 vehicles

In 2023, the 11th most beloved car model among Chinese people is the Hongguang MINIEV, which sold a total of 237800 units last year. However, compared to the record of 404800 vehicles in 2022, the sales of Hongguang MINIEV decreased by 70% last year. As for the reason for the decline in sales of the Hongguang MINIEV, the main reason is that there are more and more options for pure electric cars, and a more practical four door car can be purchased for just 20000 to 30000 yuan. In this case, the space and battery life shortcomings of the Hongguang MINIEV are exposed.

No.10 BYD Seagull -239200 vehicles

In 2023, the 10th most beloved car model among Chinese people is the familiar BYD Seagull. As a pure electric A0 class small car that was only launched in April 2023, Haiou achieved a sales achievement of 239200 units in just 9 months. The success of Seagull is not surprising. Firstly, in terms of model positioning, its price range of 73800 to 89800 yuan is very affordable. Although the length of the car is only 3.78 meters, it is not a problem to ride four adults. In terms of battery life, the pure electric range of 305-405km can basically meet a week’s commuting needs, and coupled with the strong influence of the BYD brand, it has almost become the first choice for many users to purchase pure electric commuting vehicles.

No.9 Changan CS75PLUS -245400 vehicles

Although the sales of new energy vehicles increased significantly last year, further eroding the market for fuel vehicles, the strong product strength of fuel vehicles has not been greatly affected. For example, the classic Chinese compact SUV model, the Changan CS75PLUS, sold a total of 245400 units last year, ranking 9th. Compared to 2022, the sales of CS75PLUS have even increased by 7% against the trend. What’s even more interesting is that CS75PLUS is still the best-selling pure fuel model among domestic brands in 2023. Its hot sales also prove that there are still a large number of users in China who need fuel powered cars that are affordable, stable in performance, and durable.

No.8 Volkswagen Sagitar -285000 vehicles

As is well known, gasoline powered cars saw a significant price reduction last year, with sedans like Volkswagen Sagitar offering discounts of over 30000 to 40000 yuan. In addition, the Sagitar itself has excellent fuel consumption, power, space, texture, and reputation, so in 2023, the Volkswagen Sagitar sold 285000 units, ranking 8th in new car sales. Compared to 2022, the sales of Sagitar have increased by 25%, and the strategy of exchanging price for quantity by joint venture brands has indeed achieved results.

No.7 BYD Dolphin -299700 vehicles

In 2023, BYD Dolphin sold 299700 new cars, a crazy increase of 46% compared to 2022, and became the 7th best-selling car in the year. Compared to the previous seagulls, although the price of the dolphin starts at 116800 yuan, its 4.1 meter size and a range of over 400km across the entire range still make it more practical than seagulls. Combined with its impressive exterior design and BYD’s brand influence, Dolphin does not have many competitors in the market.

No.6 BYD yuan PLUS -309800 vehicles

When it comes to BYD’s best-selling electric vehicle, people may think it’s the Han EV, but in reality, BYD’s best-selling electric vehicle in 2023 was the Yuan PLUS, with an annual sales volume of 309800 units, ranking 6th. Not only that, Yuan PLUS was also the best-selling electric vehicle among domestic brands last year. At present, there are not many options for pure electric SUVs in the price range of 100000 to 150000 yuan. The Yuan PLUS is not only a relatively rare and legitimate electric vehicle in this price range, but also performs well in terms of appearance, space, range, and charging. Therefore, buying a Yuan PLUS is basically an error free choice. Moreover, last year’s yuan PLUS had a discount of 10000 yuan, making the overall cost-effectiveness very high.

No.5 Volkswagen Lavida -345800 vehicles

In 2023, the former best-selling Volkswagen Lavida sold a total of 345800 new cars, ranking fifth on the list and still one of the favorite models among Chinese consumers. Compared to 2022, the sales of the Lavida have only declined by 1%. The reason for this is not only due to the good discount offered by the original Lavida model, but also closely related to SAIC Volkswagen’s launch of a new and cutting-edge Lavida model. Interestingly, compared to the Lavida, which has a pure Chinese exclusive identity, the Lavida’s new model is actually Volkswagen’s Virtus sold in Southeast Asia and Latin America, with some foreign ancestry. In terms of price, the starting price of the new Lavida is only 939900 yuan, and the entire series adopts the MQB A0 platform. The power is 1.5L naturally aspirated, paired with 5MT or 6AT, which are quite mature and reliable technologies.

Compared to the similarly low-priced Santana, the Lavida Xinrui has a more advanced MQB platform, larger size, and updated interior; In terms of price, it is much cheaper than the regular version of the Lavida starting at 120900 yuan, and with a terminal discount of about 30000 yuan, the actual landing price is only over 70000 yuan, which is still very attractive to traditional users.

No.4 Nissan Sylphy -376100 vehicles

In 2023, the most beloved joint venture sedan among Chinese consumers is still the Nissan Sylphy. Just like how the Sylphy lost its title of sales king in 2022, the annual sales of the Sylphy in 2023 were 376100 units, although it still ranked fourth, it decreased by 10% compared to 2022. Although the e-power version to some extent fills the gap in the single powertrain system of the Sylphy series, the gap in the plug-in hybrid field still makes it difficult for the Sylphy to compete with domestic plug-in hybrid sedans. Perhaps for Nissan, expanding the range extender plug-in hybrid version on the basis of the Sylphy e-power is the key to returning to its peak.

No.3 BYD Song PLUS -390200 vehicles

In 2023, BYD’s flagship SUV, the Song PLUS, achieved sales of 390200 units, ranking third for the year. Although the Song PLUS has emerged as a hypothetical rival in 2023, and products with core selling points such as the Deep Blue S7, Galaxy L7, and Haval Xiaolong MAX have emerged, BYD’s ace position has not been shaken. The Song PLUS is still the absolute king of new energy SUVs priced at 150000 yuan. However, the cost-effectiveness of the Song PLUS may not be as high in 2024. Faced with market pressure, BYD has also started to reduce prices and offer discounts. After the year, everyone can wait and see to buy it.

No.2 BYD Qin PLUS -434200 vehicles

In 2023, BYD’s flagship sedan, the Qin PLUS, ranked second among the most popular car models among Chinese consumers, with annual sales of 434200 units, a year-on-year increase of 40.8%. The hot sales of Qin PLUS are not surprising, as in February last year, BYD launched the Qin PLUS Champion Edition for 99800 yuan, marking the first shot in the price war for plug-in hybrid cars. In November of last year, the Qin PLUS Champion Edition was discounted by 10000 yuan across the entire series, so the entry-level version only costs 89800 yuan. Combining BYD’s brand appeal, Qin PLUS’s high warranty quantity, ultra-low fuel consumption, and exemption from purchase tax and other advantages, it is difficult for Qin PLUS to become popular!

No.1 Tesla Model -456300 vehicles

Finally, the most popular model among Chinese consumers in 2023 is the Tesla Model Y! Last year, this mid size pure electric SUV achieved sales of 456300 units in China, an increase of 44.7% compared to 2022, surpassing the BYD Qin PLUS to win the championship. Moreover, in terms of price, the starting price of Model Y exceeds 250000 yuan, far higher than the Qin PLUS DM-i starting at 99800 yuan, and it can still win the sales championship, which is very worth exploring. Although from today’s perspective, the intelligence, assisted driving, and charging speed of Model Y may not be at the top level, its power consumption and range will still be competitive in 2024. Moreover, Tesla’s brand is strong enough, and the popularity of charging stations is high, so sales are naturally guaranteed. However, we still do not recommend blindly purchasing the Model Y in 2024, because compared to models such as the Xiaopeng G6 and Zhiji LS6 priced at over 200000 yuan, the Model Y is still lagging behind, and there are rumors that a major facelift of the Model Y will be released this year. Friends who are not in a hurry should wait a little longer!

summary:

In 2022, the BYD Song PLUS DM-i brought down the Nissan Sylphy with its comprehensive product strength and excellent cost-effectiveness, which also led to the explosive growth of plug-in hybrid vehicles in China in 2023. In 2023, Tesla Model Y defeated BYD’s “PLUS duo” with its pure electric identity and became the best-selling model in the Chinese market, driving the birth of high cost-effective pure electric SUVs such as Xiaopeng G6 and Zhiji LS6. In 2024, the competition between plug-in hybrid, pure electric, and fuel will continue. Who will take away this year’s sales champion? We’ll see the end in a year!

What should I do if BYD Yuan Plus loses power abnormally?

Regarding the problem of abnormal power loss of Yuan Plus, it mainly involves the calibration of lithium iron phosphate batteries. Therefore, how to calibrate the battery power and restore it to normal is the key to solving the problem of abnormal power loss. The following is an idea for calibrating the battery for your reference:

1、Consumption of the vehicle’s power is below 10%, then insert the charging gun into the vehicle to start the charging process.
2、Turn on the vehicle’s air conditioning and set the temperature to the hottest setting. Keep the air conditioner working until the vehicle’s APP shows that the battery level is 0%.
3、Turn off the air conditioner and continue charging until the battery reaches 100%. In order to protect the battery, it is not recommended to completely deplete the battery, so the actual battery capacity displayed by the charging station shall prevail. As long as the power displayed on the charging pile is above 59 kilowatts, it can be confirmed that the battery has been fully discharged and the battery calibration has been successful.

In addition, after charging is completed in winter, the charging gun should be pulled out as soon as possible and the vehicle started to avoid damage to the small battery due to power consumption.
This calibration method is suitable for situations where there is a large power loss problem and the battery is recharged after the battery is lower than 20%. It can solve the problem of large power calculation error.

It is worth noting that virtually all pure electric vehicles from major automakers retain a portion of their power to protect the battery and solve the problem of moving the vehicle when the battery is extremely low. Therefore, do not drain the battery unless absolutely necessary. In addition, this extreme charging operation should be avoided as much as possible, especially for personal vehicles rather than test vehicles.

The BYD Yuan PLUS Champion Edition Upgrade: Taking Cost Performance to the Next Level!

For those familiar with BYD, it’s known that almost every series has a Champion Edition model, which means they offer the highest cost-performance configuration options. From the Qin Champion Edition that broke the 100,000 RMB price barrier to the cost-performance king in the mid-to-large car market, the Han Champion Edition, BYD has now introduced the Champion Edition to the best-selling SUV, the Yuan PLUS.

BYD pickup exposed, expected to launch this year!

According to news on April 24, recently, some netizens exposed a group of camouflage pictures of BYD pickups. Judging from the large logo inlaid on the front face, it is indeed a BYD model.

The front face design of this model is somewhat similar to Ford’s F150, with tough lines, the big logo of China Open, and the LED lights on both sides are similar to Ford’s F150.

BYD pickups adopt the mainstream double-row seat layout and are equipped with side steps.

In terms of power, BYD’s electric pickup may provide two power versions: plug-in hybrid and pure electric. It is reported that BYD’s electric pickup is expected to be equipped with hydraulic active suspension system, streaming media rearview mirror, Huawei AR-HUD and other functions, and adopt a gear shift mechanism.

According to BYD’s previously disclosed “professional and personalized new brand” plan, the price range of the pickup truck model may be 400,000 to 600,000 yuan.

According to relevant channels, the car is expected to be officially launched this year!

BYD’s new car: Dynasty.com “Song L” exposed, will debut at the Shanghai Auto Show

On April 14, BYD Auto posted on its official Weibo that its subsidiary “Dynasty.com” is about to usher in a new B-class pure electric SUV, the Song L. The new car is expected to debut at the 2023 Shanghai Auto Show.

BYD's new car: Dynasty.com "Song L" exposed, will debut at the Shanghai Auto Show

At present, BYD’s highest-selling model, the “Song PLUS” family, is divided into “Ocean Network” for sale; this move played a very good role in attracting traffic in the early days of “Ocean Network”.

However, as time comes to 2023, the original pure electric car series of “Ocean Network” has been able to stand alone in sales. For example, BYD Dolphin sold 27,600 vehicles in March this year.

In this context, it is reasonable for BYD to return Song L, the new model of the Song family, to the “Dynasty Network”.

After all, Song L is a B-class pure electric SUV. Compared with the current high-selling Song PLUS DM-i (plug-in hybrid), the market segment conflict between the two is relatively small; “Between, maintain the current relatively healthy sales structure.

Speaking of models, judging from the posters released so far, compared with the current Song PLUS EV, the design style of Song L is more rigid. For example, the ribs at the front cabin cover bring more muscularity to Song L.

In addition, in the publicity picture, Song L is equipped with electronic rearview mirrors on both sides of the front of the car, but there is a high probability that Song L will also provide traditional rearview mirrors so that consumers can choose independently.

In terms of size, Song L has not released relevant detailed data, but refer to the current model (2021 model)-its length, width and height data are 4705mm1890mm1680mm, and the wheelbase is 2765mm, which is a compact SUV.

Therefore, as a medium-sized SUV, Song L’s overall size will inevitably be further enlarged; especially in terms of wheelbase, it is likely to exceed 2800mm.

In terms of price, the editor personally predicts: If the price of Song L is placed between the price of Song PLUS EV (2021 model, guide price 186,800-203,800 yuan), and Tang EV (2022 model, guide price 282,800-342,800 yuan) Time, then the starting price of Song L – probably more than 200,000 yuan.

It is worth noting that earlier this year, a BYD 2023 product planning map was circulated on the Internet. Some of the forecast information has now become a reality. For example, the “Qin PLUS DM-i” sold starting at 99,800, and the upcoming Song L and Seagull.

If the content of this product plan can continue to be realized, then this year BYD will bring us more surprises, such as the new sedan “Qin L” mentioned in the picture above, and the new generation of DM-i plug-in hybrid technology.

But at the moment, the editor is more concerned about: Will Song L, which is about to be launched, become a new “price butcher”? If within the price range of 200,000 to 210,000 yuan, a model with a pure electric battery life of about 600km can be provided, relying on BYD’s current reputation-Song L will have great market potential.
