BYD says Q1 profit falls 84.4 pct on year
Tue Jun 28, 2011 7:56pm EDT

HONG KONG, June 29 (Reuters) - BYD Company Ltd , the Chinese automaker backed by U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett, said its net profit for the first quarter of 2011 fell 84.4 percent year-on-year in accordance with Chinese accounting standards.

In a filing to the Hong Kong bourse on Wednesday, BYD said net profit for the first quarter stood at 266.74 million yuan ($41.2 million), compared to 1.70 billion yuan a year ago.

The drop was "mainly due to a decline in the performance of the automobile business, coupled with the effect of increased management expenses and finance expenses," chairman Wang Chuan-fu said in a statement.

Operating revenue for the quarter fell 11.6 percent year on year to 11.71 billion yuan as vehicle sales volumes fell on the expiration of incentives and intensifying competition, the firm said.

BYD, in which Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc (BRKa.N) has a 9.9 percent stake, said earlier this month that it had received formal approval for an A-share listing on the Shenzhen market.

An very interesting view of Mr Wang, Chairman of BYD...

Geopolitics drives China’s policy on electric vehicles

BEIJING — Chinese auto executives do not usually allude to the possibility of a shooting war in the South China Sea in the course of otherwise routine industry briefings.

Yet Mr Wang Chuanfu, chairman of BYD, did just that last month during the launch of the company’s latest electric car, developed by its joint venture with Daimler of Germany.

Asked why he was optimistic about the future of electric vehicles in the world’s largest automotive market, Mr Wang argued that government policy support for the sector would be a critical factor in its success, driven in large part by Beijing’s concerns about what he called “the two 60 per cents”.

China now imports about 60 per cent of its annual oil requirement and 60 per cent of those imports are shipped through the South China Sea, a region where the untested People’s Liberation Army Navy is trying to project power and push back its Philippine, Vietnamese and US rivals.

“The South China Sea is a very complicated problem,” Mr Wang said, referring to the region’s territorial disputes that could potentially spark a conflict and disrupt maritime traffic. “If ships could not deliver their oil, China would face severe shortages.”

There are other reasons the Chinese government this summer issued a new and improved set of incentives to spur the development of so-called NEVs, or new energy vehicles, most notably pollution. But Mr Wang argued that geopolitical concerns loomed largest in its formulation of policy support for alternative energy vehicles.

“Oil security is the biggest driver for NEV development,” he said, adding that Premier Li Keqiang’s “war on pollution”, declared in March this year, was “the second driver”.

The sales of electric car is comparable between BYD, and Tesla, but I am sure the burn rate of Tesla is much higher than BYD...

'China’s Tesla', BYD, has electric dreams

BEIJING — In contrast to the usual pattern of technological advance, Chinese car firm BYD — for Build Your Dreams — has led the way in electric vehicles but now faces increasing competition from Western manufacturers.

BYD has nothing like the global profile of Tesla but sold its first hybrid in 2008, long before the US firm went into production.

The same year, US billionaire Warren Buffett acquired a 10 per cent stake in the company. Deliveries of its first all-electric car, the e6, began in 2011, a year ahead of the first sales of Tesla’s Model S.

While Tesla founder Elon Musk might be compared to a “sprinter”, BYD’s president Wang Chuanfu “is more of a marathon runner”, the company’s senior vice president Stella Li told Bloomberg News earlier this month, slowly but surely building its brand recognition and sales volume.

In 2015, BYD sold around 58,000 electric and hybrid vehicles, doubling year-on-year, according to its annual report, which did not differentiate between the categories. It hopes to sell three times as many this year.

In comparison, all-electric Tesla sold 50,580 cars globally in 2015.

Humid weather is less of a problem compared to charging. Live at HDB/condo how to charge?
dear dear,

electricity and tesla are not energy source lah. All these cars are actually vehicles with batteries and nothing more.

if you really sure the world is changing then find out who are the big players of either lithium ion or nickel hydride batteries on supply or manufacturing side listed on some stock exchange

Here are the world's top lithium-producing countries from 2015, as reported by the US Geological Survey (USGS).
  • Australia. Mine production: 13,400 MT. ...
  • Chile. Mine production: 12,900 MT. ...
  • Argentina. Mine production: 3,800 MT. ...
  • China. Mine production: 2,200 MT. ...
  • Zimbabwe. Mine production: 900 MT. ...
  • Portugal. ...
  • Brazil. ...
  • United States.

I no longer believer or buy into the green energy movement or argument. It's one thing to build a electric car in your garage connect to your home power outlet the electricity from some clean energy source like wind turbine or solar but when you talk about 10,000 to 100,000 cars it's a different animal already clean energy will not be able to keep up with demand on mass scale in the end will still fall back fossil fuel - That's why none of the oil producers of the world blinked whenever talk of green energy comes up because they know green energy is unsustainable.

anyway china is different they have not much oil, but lots of coal and no environment laws, they just only care the end result so burn coal produce electricity to charge cars regardless of pollution. it works in china and maybe in those countries that have very lax laws on pollution.

but In US and elsewhere it could be different where they have very tough laws on use of coal. So in those places why burn oil at power plants to produce electricity to charge cars when you can just fill up the car directly with the same thing.
