Chinese auto manufacturer BYD announced Sunday that it has already ceased the production of traditional gasoline-powered vehicles starting from March.

In the future, BYD's auto business will focus on pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, said the Chinese leading new-energy vehicle manufacturer.


BYD also said that it will continue to offer existing customers of traditional gasoline-powered vehicles improved service and after-sales support, as well as the supply of spare parts throughout the life cycle.


The latest data shows that in March, BYD sold 104,338 passenger cars, including 50,674 plug-in hybrid models and 53,664 pure electric models, and no traditional gasoline-powered models were sold.
