Retail sales in the domestic narrow passenger car market in June were 665000, up 25.2% from a year earlier, 14.7% from a month earlier, and the retail penetration rate was 35.1%, according to retail data from the Federation of passengers. Cumulative sales from January to June in 2023 were 3.086 million, up 37.3% from the same period last year.
The top 10 car companies in June were BYD Automobile, Tesla China, Guangzhou Automobile Ean, Geely Automobile, ideal Automobile, Changan Automobile, SAIC GM Wuling, Great Wall Motor, Zero running Automobile and Naga Automobile. Compared with May, there are no "new faces" in the top 10 models on the list in June, but there has been a significant change in the ranking of car companies in the top five, with SAIC GM Wuling falling out of the top 5 and the highest year-on-year decline on the list.
Data show that SAIC GM Wuling sold 29300 vehicles in June 2023, down 32.7% from a year earlier, making it the brand with the highest decline on the list.

In March this year, SAIC GM Wuling launched Wuling colorful fruit, which launched a total of five models with a price range of 5.98 yuan to 83800 yuan, which competes with zero running T03, Qirui boundless and the upcoming BYD Seagull. Unlike a number of car companies, new cars have become popular models immediately after they are launched. Data show that in less than four months since Wuling colorful fruit went on sale, the cumulative sales of Wuling colorful fruit has reached 61272, of which from April to June, the sales were 16383, 18015 and 19118 respectively, showing a gradual growth trend.

Tesla's cumulative sales in China in the first half of the year were 294100, an increase of 48.9% over the same period last year, with a market share of 9.5%.
GAC Ean ranked third with sales of 45000 vehicles, an increase of 86.7% over the same period last year, with cumulative sales of 209300 vehicles in the first half of the year. By the end of June, Ian had achieved 41.86% of its annual sales target of 500000 vehicles, and it is expected that it is more likely to achieve the annual sales target.

In addition, the cumulative sales of ideal cars in the first half of the year was 139100, an increase of 130.31% over the same period last year. According to the calculation of the annual sales of 300000 ideal cars at the beginning of the year, the completion rate of ideal cars in the first six months was 46.37%, and the target could be achieved by selling only about 160000 vehicles in the second half of the year. Li Xiang, chairman and CEO of ideal Automobile, said in a letter to all employees that the goal of ideal Automobile is to achieve the first sales of all luxury brands in the Chinese market (that is, the first sales of all passenger cars over 200000 yuan), with a delivery volume of 1.6 million vehicles per year.
In addition to ideal cars, second-tier new power brands Zero and Naga also made the top 10 list in June, but Nahu fell 16.8% from a year earlier, second only to SAIC GM Wuling.
