BYD has released the first official images of the BYD Yuan and BYD Song, two SUV’s scheduled for debut on the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show that starts on April 20. They are called ‘concept cars’ but they are really very close to reality. The blue car is the BYD Yuan, it is the hybrid variant of the petrol-powered BYD S1 sub-compact SUV.
This is the new BYD E5, an electric car based on the petrol-powered BYD Su Rui sedan. The BYD E5 will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market in the second half of the year. It will only be the second full-electric car in BYD’s line-up after the aging BYD e6.
BYD will open its first passenger car factory in Brazil this year, with the aim of revolutionizing the country’s urban transport by focusing on cheap electric taxis and vehicles for car-sharing schemes. Adalberto Maluf Filho, director of the company’s marketing and governmental affairs in Brazil, told ChinaDaily that BYD is ready to provide non-polluting buses and taxis for large cities such as Rio and Sao Paulo.

The very first Spy Shot of the upcoming BYD S1, a new sub-compact SUV that will be launched on the Chinese car market just before the end of this year. The hybrid variant of the BYD S1 will be called ‘BYD Yuan’. BYD will use S-x names for the petrol-powered versions and fancy Chinese-dynasty names for the hybrid versions.
A new flock of photos of the new BYD S3 SUV,one of four brand new BYD SUV’s under development. The BYD S3 comes with the most impressive front we have seen on a BYD so far, with a heavily chromed grille topping a Lexus-like snout and flanked by mean looking lights.
BYDwill launch four new SUV’s in China, in addition the the mad BYD Tang and BYD Tang Ultimate. Starting with the BYD Yuan, a sub-compact SUV that will debut is the third quarter with a launch on the Chinese car market just before the end of the year. The Yuan will come with 1.1 and 1.3 liter four-cylinder petrol engines and as a dual-mode hybrid. Size: 4320/1765/1650, wheelbase 2520.
Time now for a closer look at the BYD Tang Ultimate Edition, the super speedy and hyper exclusive variant of the new BYD Tang SUV. The Tang Ultimate Edition is limited to 200 cars and costs 600.000 yuan (96.530 USD), but price goes down to 520.000 yuan (83.711 USD) when all green-car subsidies are included. Still a lot of money, especially since the base Tang starts at 220.000 yuan. So what do you get for all that extra cash? More power!, and then some.
