The BYD Song SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 96.900 yuan and ends at 146.900. First a word on names. Up until today we were lead to believe that the petrol powered variant of this new SUV was going to be called ‘BYD S3‘, and the hybrid variant ‘BYD Song‘, just like they go with the BYD S7 and the BYD Tang.
But no. BYD, in its undeniable brilliance, has suddenly decided to call the entire range ‘Song’, petrol and hybrid alike. And to make things even better: today’s launch is for the petrol variants only, the hybrid will follow in early 2016.
This is the final production version of the BYD S3 slash BYD Song. The S3 is the petrol version and the Song the hybrid version. This white-yellow demo car is a bit of a mess. It has stickers on the side saying ‘Song (S3)’, a Song badge on the back, but a 2.0 turbo engine under the bonnet. BYD likely tried to show off two cars in one, which in the end only seems to indicate that the real Song isn’t ready yet.

It has been a long time since we have heard from the BYDSu Rui, a compact sedan that became world famous when it was launched in 2012 because it can be remote controlled, from the outside. Sadly sales have been slow, undercut by the cheaper BYD F3 where it is based on, and overshadowed by the manic BYD Qin hybrid. But there is some news now that might improve sales just a bit, or more.
