More than 500 km without recharging, Dragon Face 3.0 and interior from designer Mercedes, inexpensive. Introduced electric crossover BYD Yuan Plus
The new BYD Yuan Plus compact electric crossover has been officially unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show. It was also announced that pre-orders will begin on January 1, with buyers receiving their vehicles in the first quarter. Depending on the capacity of the battery and the power reserve, the price will be $ 20,000 or $ 25,000.
In the first case, a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 50.1 kW • h will be installed, while the power reserve will be 430 km. The older version will receive a 60.5 kW • h battery, and the cruising range will be 510 km.
It is the first all-electric SUV to be powered by the new BYD 3.0 platform, using the Dragon Face 3.0 design language. The dimensions of the car are 4455 x 1875 x 1615 mm with a wheelbase of 2720 mm. It is marketed as a compact SUV, but it has a short front overhang and a large wheelbase, which provides quite a lot of room for landing in the cabin.
The vehicle is equipped with an AC permanent magnet synchronous motor with a maximum power of 203 hp. and a peak torque of 310 Nm. It takes the car 7.3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h. Yes, compared to other modern cars, this is far from a record, but it is worth noting that most gasoline or diesel cars in this price range are less dynamic.
The salon is equipped with a digital instrument panel and a large-screen multimedia and entertainment system. The interior was designed by BYD Chief Designer Michel Paganetti himself, who previously worked at Daimler on the design of various Mercedes models, and is built using the latest concept of “rhythmic space”. The center console, based on the image of the dragon, is painted in two colors. There is also a dragon scale design element on the C-pillar.
