Chinese Economy in Trouble
China’s economic activity is slumping as the abrupt end of strict Covid rules encourages massive waves of infections. The official manufacturing index fell 1 point to 47 in December, the government said on Saturday. Non-manufacturing PMI, which covers services and construction, fell 6.1 points to 41.6. Both are the lowest since February 2020, when Covid-19 first hit the country. Readings below 50 signal contraction.
China EV Deliveries
No (NIO), Li Car (IF) and XPeng (XPEV) Open for reporting December, fourth quarter and full year EV deliveries On Sunday, January 1. Li Auto said on Friday that December deliveries of its hybrid SUVs will surpass 20,000, breaking November’s record of 15,034. Nio recently lowered its Q4 delivery guidance, citing Covid-related issues. Guidance meant 14,263-15,263 EV deliveries in December, which will slightly exceed November’s record of 14,178. Xpeng should see deliveries up after several month-to-month dips, but the model lineup is struggling.
BYD will likely report December sales on January 1. 3, before the US market opens on Tuesday. The EV and battery giant recently stated that Covid infections among workers have reduced production by at least 2,000 vehicles per day. Full-year deliveries of all-electric BEVs and plug-in hybrids should be around 1.88 million, BYD said recently. That means December deliveries are around 247,000-250,000, which would still be a record.
Nio stock had a tough 2022, as did Li Auto, Xpeng and BYD, other EV makers, and growing stocks in general. They all bottomed out in October or early November, but have retreated in recent weeks.
Tesla vs. BYD: Which EV Giant Would Buy Better?
Tesla EV Deliveries
Tesla is expected to announce its fourth-quarter EV production and delivery figures on Jan. 2. Analysts expect 418,000 Q4 Tesla deliveries, but consensus has been falling in recent days as China has been even weaker. Tesla offered major year-end incentives, particularly in China and the US, to boost sales. This didn’t give a big boost in China, but it did seem to clear inventory in the US.
In 2023, Tesla will enjoy new US tax credits of up to $7,500, but year-end incentives of $7,500 for the Model 3 or Model Y – Model S and X vehicles added on Dec. 30 – this may have touched some of the request. A $55,000 price cap on most Model Y vehicles could limit Tesla’s EV credit growth.
Meanwhile, China is ending EV subsidies. Combined with a massive Covid wave, this could further drive down sales for EV manufacturers out there, including Tesla. Tesla may need significant new price cuts in China, where competition from BYD, Nio, Li Auto, Xpeng and others continues to rise.
In Europe, several countries are cutting or ending EV subsidies, providing another headwind for Tesla as backlogs there are dwindling.
Tesla stock fell 65% in 2022, its worst annual decline ever. Stocks fell 37% in December to their lowest level since September 2022. The electric vehicle giant closed the week roughly flat, rebounding from the midweek bear market lows. TSLA stock volume has been very high for the past few weeks.

Even then, the market would have faced a number of technical hurdles as the S&P 500, Nasdaq and Russell 2000 were just below the 50-day and 200-day lines. The Dow Jones, which has been the relative leader in recent months, has dropped below the 50-day mark by the end of 2022, but is over 200 days.
Until the Fed’s interest rate is endgame and clarity about the economy, the market can move with volatility and sideways movements.
The December employment report was released on Friday, January 1. 6 will be important. Significant slowdown in hiring and wage growth will strengthen expectations that Fed rate hikes will slow further and raise hopes that peak rates are near. But solid or accelerating business and wage growth will likely trigger a big sale.
