BYD released an interesting video from winter tests of its upcoming Tang plug-in hybrid.

The car was tested in Yakeshi, Inner Mongolia, China at the Bosch Automotive Test and Technology Center.

In red, the Tang looks like a winner and we believe it should sell as well as Qin in China.

In the tests, Tang was going uphill (slope 20%) with one side on the ice. As it turns out, the result for Tang in this test was slightly better than the BMW X6 (5:03 vs 5:22), while the Volkswagen Tiguan needed 7:03.

The second part of the video shows some tug of war – and again Tang won. A vehicle capable of winning in tug of war is definitely an attribute we seek in buying a new car.  Doesn’t everyone?

They forgot the most important tests, the tests these car are designed for, driving up to a school gate at less than 10 mph and taking 50 attempts to get into a super market parking space.

Such tests we would like to see from a Tesla Model X (or at least a Model S “Dual”.

I do this every month with my neighbour. When I loose, I push my car off a cliff to get rid of the shame.
