Spy Shots: BYD e6 ready for the Market in China
Published on September 8, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
The BYD e6 EV has been around for many years. But individual buyers still can’t get it, the E6 has only be used for a few taxi-pilot-projects. That however will change soon. BYD will bring the ‘individual’ e6 to the market and these are the very first spy shots of the actual production car. Boldest claim first: range of 240 to 300 kilometer, depending on ‘road conditions’. That means that the range is at least 240 kilometers.
Charging on a special station will take 15 minutes for 80%. No word how long it will take on standard 220V. Power comes from a 101hp electric motor coupled to BYD’s “Fe” lithium iron phosphate battery. BYD claims a top speed of 160km/h and the E6 will do 0-100km in “less than” 8 seconds. Price yet unknown.
