First Photo Of The New BYD Tang SUV For China

This is the very first photo of the successor of the BYD Tang SUV. The vehicle was seen in a design studio and is likely just a model. But is looks good, with sharp shapes all along and a very distinctive grille. The new Tang isn’t expected before late 2018 but we might see a first concept near the end of this year.

This is the current Tang, fitted with impressive tech but never a beauty. The car on the photo is the latest model, the Tang 100, an ultra speedy hybrid with a total output of 505hp and 820nm, good for a 0-100 in just 4.9 seconds. The new Tang will have even more horsepower and a longer electric-only range, which currently stands on 100 kilometers, hence the name.

    The hiring of Wolfgang Egger as BYD’s new chief designer was badly needed.

      BYD finally has a unique design.
      I’m sure it will be more streamlined and not as cluttered as the prototype.

      Glad to see they are finally having their mojo.
      Though it would be quite some time before they have an excellent design that draws upon years of Chinese heritage.
