Wish BYD would export these all over the world, they would sell well.

That BYD Song would be a massive hit just about everywhere. Only question is how they do in crash tests.

When you make ’em fast all they need to k ow is that they crash!
I would trust a Chinese crash test data about as much as I trust their food safety….

With the C-NCAP catching up fast it is just a matter of time before the tested cars are as safe or safer than the western ones. But it would be nice to see how they would do on a Euro-NCAP test to compare how far/closely behind they are today.
2018 tests are supposed to include AEB and pedestrian safety, something the Euro-NCAP only has had for a few years.


What is the meaning of: “DM”?

Dual Mode


BYD should really start thinking about selling their EV models and PHEV models in other countries. Start with Norway, and spread out to other countries in Europe. See what happens.

The Chinese have already built the “New Silk Road”. They can transport containers by rail from Shanghai to Europe in about two weeks time. This new Infrastructure is awesome.

Transporting containers by boat from Shanghai to Europe takes at least about two months.

BYD is selling only the E6 (and some E-Bus) in Europe, USA and Singapore, and the global webpage does not tell anything about specifications and which models are produced, just second hand info is available.

Yes, it would be great if they sold them globally, but I doubt it’ll happen soon. In China they get serious incentives, and they get to sell EV credits to the fossil car building manufacturers who can’t meet the EV mandate. Once their battery building capacity exceeds the (massive) demand in the Chinese market though, maybe they could go global.

Really? A Cross-over with a 61kWh battery and a range of 500km? Only with an European NEDC like protocole..and downhill!

60 kph constant speed. Most generous rating sistem.

500 km range on a PHEV, not bad. 😉

Any numbers on what the prices are before incentives?

According to prices before Chinese incentives:

Yuan PHEV = 209,800 CNY = 30,500$
Qin PHEV = 180,000 CNY = 26,200$
Tang PHEV = 279,800 CNY = 40,700$

the other prices are n/a or stated only after subsidy

Mpg are chinas or EPA?

Seriously doubt they get 310mi range from 60kWh battery. Probably more like 250mi if Bolt is anything to go by.

The Chinese are coming! I bet we will see some of these, at learn the SUVs. Remember Warren Buffet’s Birkshire Hataway has investments in this company. The converted prices, after incentives(!) are also a telling story. The US and Europian car companies may get a big hit from these guys at the lower end of the market.

When BYD goes global on their cars they will take a big chunk of the market. Their buses are already growing in demand in other countries, it’s only a matter of time until their cars goes global. Beautiful engineering.

If somone from europe goes in china and try to buy a byd song or tang to bring it back in europa, is it able to do?
