BYD plans to release the U9 supercar under the luxury brand Yangwang as well as a number of other models and oust Tesla in the Chinese and other EV markets as well, Yusuke Hinata reported for Nikkei.


"Our goal starts at 3 million units," BYD Chairman Wang Chuanfu said at an investors conference in Hong Kong late last month.



But he added that BYD hoped to double last year's sales volume to reach 3.6 million units. The higher figure includes exports. BYD also lags behind Volkswagen as China's top automaker.
