Will join the PHEV version.

The BYD Song MAX is an MPV model developed by Chinese automaker BYD that went on sales in the third quarter of 2017 and its PHEV version has already been launched last year. According to China’s local media, the BEV version of the BYD Song MAX is expected to hit the market this year.

As the photos taken by local media shows, the BEV version displays a striking resemblance to the gasoline-burning version, yet some nuances could be noticed at the front face. Featuring BYD’s latest iconic “Dragon Face” design, the new model has a grille looking like a mouth agape, which is decorated with multi-banner chrome trims extending to the outline of headlights. It is noticeable that the grille features more segments separated by chrome trims than the existing gasoline-powered version, also carries slimmer fog lights.

As to the side profile, the upward-sloping lines are in tune with the floating roof. At the rear end, above a chrome trim that pierces into taillights on both sides is a logo of Chinese character “宋” (Song).

The BYD Song MAX BEV version measures 4,680mm long, 1,810mm wide and 1,680mm tall with a wheelbase spanning 2,785mm, the same as the gasoline version.

Such facilities as the panoramic roof, luggage rack, radar, privacy window and side curtain air bag will be offered to customers as optional choice.

Powering the vehicle will be an electric motor that does 120kW. The lettering of “MAX EV500” suggests that its maximum range may be 500km.

I want something like this in Europe also. These cars are the most practical in my opinion and can do almost everything.
The VW ID BUZZ is coming but i’d like something smaller. The Nissan e-NV200 has a too short range and just a fan to cool the batteries.

This is another little noticed EV. These are like raindrops, each one unremarkable in itself but together they will make a flood.

True, and I like the way you folded in a Chinese Proverb there to make your point.

500 km is absolutely grat range.. Im sure it will capture the hearts of many!! Go BYD Go…

That’s likely 500 km on the Chinese test cycle. So closer to 300-350 km real world range.

True, but still pretty good for what will be a heavy, not very aerodynamic, 7-seater.
We hear that the Chinese government thinks there are now too many Chinese EV companies, so Iwouldn’t be surprised to see a couple of them start looking seriously at the export business within 1-2 years. I think BYD is likely to do this as they already sell their BEV buses abroad, but there’ll be others. They’ll give the Western carmakers some competition on the lower end of the price range.

I don’t think it will be EV500, the much smaller new Yuan is already at 535 km at constant 60km/h speed (over 215 mile EPA), and new Tang has 600km. Song is an MPV, should at least have the same battery as Tang

Not necessarily. Isn’t the Tang a 5-seater? The Song MAX is a 7-seater, so may be larger & heavier.
