China’s BYD made waves for outselling Tesla in Q4 2023, prompting many to believe that the once dominant EV king would fall further behind in 2024.

However, figures for Q1 2024 are now out, and they reveal a dramatic 43% decline in BYD sales from the previous quarter. Meanwhile, Tesla reported a slightly less painful 20% drop in sales.

To see how this battle is playing out, we visualized the global BEV sales of both companies over the past several years. Exact figures can be found in the table below.

The steep drops reported in Q1 2024 are the latest sign that consumer appetite for fully electric vehicles has slowed, prompting both companies to escalate their ongoing price war. In February 2024, BYD responded to Tesla’s repeated price cuts with its own round of discounts.

BYD Offers a Significantly Lower Entry Point

As shown in the above graphic, starting prices for some of BYD’s electric cars are incredibly low.

In China, the BYD Seagull now starts at 69,800 yuan ($9,700), while the Yuan Plus (BYD’s Model Y competitor) starts at 119,800 yuan ($16,000). On the other hand, Tesla’s cheapest model (RWD Model 3) costs 245,900 yuan ($34,000). It’s interesting to note that the cheapest Model 3 in the U.S. costs $38,990, according to reporting from CNN.

The United States is home to more than 46 million immigrants, constituting approximately 14% of its total population.

This graphic displays the top 25 countries of origin for U.S. immigrants, based on 2022 estimates. The data is sourced from the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), which analyzed information from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2022 American Community Survey.

In this context, “immigrants” refer to individuals residing in the United States who were not U.S. citizens at birth.

Mexico Emerges as a Leading Source of Immigration

Mexico stands out as the largest contributor to U.S. immigration due to its geographical proximity and historical ties.

Various economic factors, including wage disparities and employment opportunities, motivate many Mexicans to seek better prospects north of the border.

Mexicans are followed in this ranking by Indians, Chinese, and Filipinos, though most immigrants on this list come from countries in the Latin American and Caribbean region.

On the other hand, only three European countries are among the top sources of U.S. immigrants: the UK, Germany, and Ukraine.

Immigration continues to be a significant factor contributing to the overall growth of the U.S. population. Overall population growth has decelerated over the past decade primarily due to declining birth rates.

Between 2021 and 2022, the increase in the immigrant population accounted for 65% of the total population growth in the U.S., representing 912,000 individuals out of nearly 1.4 million.
