Besides, from January to May, only 5,236 vehicles have been output, a drastic decrease of 86.6% from the previous year.

Last month, BAIC BJEV received a fund worth RMB24.93 million from the Beijing Municipal Finance Bureau as part of central government's efforts to liquidate the NEV subsidy that should be allocated to automakers based on the EV number in which companies applied for subsidy in 2016.
In the meantime, BAIC BJEV also gained RMB1,130.44 million worth of subsidy funds from the authority as the state's prepaid funds for NEV promotion and application which should be given to enterprises on the basis of the NEV quantity they submitted to government in 2017 and 2018 as an effort to file for subsidy.
