Chinese makers of electric vehicles are planning to make big inroads in markets around the world.
BYD has become the latest to announce its global ambitions, with a plan to start exporting passenger cars to Europe.
BYD's chairman made the announcement on Wednesday at an event at its Shenzhen headquarters to mark a major production milestone.
The firm says it's become the first Chinese manufacturer to build over one million new-energy cars.
The chairman vowed that more of its output will be headed overseas.
BYD's first exports of EV passenger cars will go to Norway, with a shipment of 1,500 vehicles in the second half of this year. The company has already been shipping electric buses overseas.
Europe could prove a lucrative market. Governments in the region are coming out with stricter environmental regulations and want to see more EVs and fewer gasoline-burning cars on their roads.
Norway is a driving force in this push for a greener future.
Other Chinese EV makers are looking at the Nordic country. Xiaopeng Motors began exports there last year. Similar plans by Nio are scheduled to get underway from September.
