SAIC (7.2%, down from 7.4% in November) stayed in 4th, however the Shanghai automaker continued to lose share at a regarding charge, shedding 0.4% in comparison with Q3 and a few 4% YoY.
How will the race for bronze unfold in 2023? Volkswagen Group ought to win it by a long way. I don’t suppose SAIC has sufficient firepower to get near the German conglomerate that, in its flip, is hoping to get better some floor on the highest two. The Shanghai Group can be completely satisfied if it might merely cease the market share bleed.
Within the C-League, Geely–Volvo (6%, up from 5.9%) continued to rise, having gained 0.3% within the final quarter of the yr, and a few 2% share YoY. It now appears to be like to atone for SAIC someday throughout this yr.
#6 Stellantis (4.7%) and #7 Hyundai–Kia (4.6%) are competing for the sixth place, and it ought to stay that means throughout 2023.

Nonetheless, 18.2% share is a notable feat contemplating the present diversification course of.
The silver medal this time went to BYD (12.6%), which had been 4th in 2021, gaining 5% share within the course of! In comparison with Q3 2022, the Chinese language automaker received 0.7% share.
Now, the query many had been ready for: Will BYD beat Tesla in 2023 in BEVs?
Hmmm … I believe it’s too quickly to guess. It’s true, although, that if present tendencies proceed all through 2024, that may occur across the second or third quarter of that yr. Tesla ought to proceed shedding share throughout 2023, and BYD will proceed gaining share, one of many causes being the truth that BYD’s lineup will turn out to be extra BEV-heavy this yr (the Seagull and Sea Lion will play a big function there). Another excuse is that exports are principally targeted on BEVs, with PHEVs solely being utilized in choose markets.
So, whereas BYD share within the plugin market may stagnate in 2023, as a result of it’s going to have a better mixture of BEVs, its share within the BEV-only market will proceed to develop.
SAIC, which ended the yr with 9.3% share, down from 9.6% in November, was the bronze medalist, having misplaced half a share level in comparison with Q3 2022 and a few Four factors in comparison with the 2021 outcome.

In fifth, we’ve got a rising Geely–Volvo (5.3%, up from 5.1% in November). It gained 0.5% share in comparison with Q3 2022, and a full one share level in comparison with 2021.
Taking a look at these outcomes compared to the BEV+PHEV tables and charts, it’s the similar prime 5 gamers. The variations are the place adjustments between BYD and Tesla, and between SAIC and Volkswagen Group.
