Shanghai electric vehicle sales surprise in China
Shanghai on Wednesday extended its policy of offering free license plates for new energy vehicles from the end of the year to the end of February.

Shanghai NEV License Plate Policy boosted November sales gains for Tesla, Nio, Xpeng, Li Auto and BYD Group, with more of the same expected in December.
After February, the EV sales picture could be more complex, with the risk of overall supply exceeding demand. Tesla is supposed to ramp up production of the Model Y made in China, while Volkswagen should do the same with rival ID.4. Nio, Li Auto, Xpeng, BYD and other automakers and startups will have higher electric vehicle production.
In the short term, Nio, Xpeng, Li Auto and BYD should release production and delivery data in December by the end of next week. Tesla will release its fourth-quarter global production and delivery numbers by late next week.
