Chinese BYD introduced its new flagship model

The car turned out to be very luxurious and will be able to compete with premium German brands. The first modifications will receive all-electric power plants.

Chinese concern BYD introduced its flagship sedan BYD Han. Photos of the car and technical specifications were released on Monday, May 4. The novelty has received large dimensions – 4980x1920x1495 mm, which is more than that of the business sedans Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6. The wheelbase size reaches 2 920 mm, which provides a large space in the cabin. We note a very stylish design, which is somewhat reminiscent of the silhouette of the KIA Optima. Headlights turned out very narrow and bright. In the lateral part, we highlight the presence of retractable handles on all four doors.

The taillights are integrated into a monoblock LED strip. The developers paid great attention to aerodynamics – the dynamic drag coefficient turned out to be at the level of the best cars in its class. The car interior received a very informative virtual dashboard, as well as an advanced multimedia complex with a large touchscreen. Separately, it is worth mentioning the power plant of the car. In total, three different modifications will be available to customers.

The basic version will have one electric motor located on the front axle. The return of such a power plant will be 222 hp. at 330 Nm of torque. The engine is supported by a 65 kWh battery.

The second modification will receive the same engine, but a large battery capacity – 77 kWh. But the premium version will acquire two electric motors – one front and one back. The total output of such a BYD Han EV will be 494 hp. at 680 Nm of torque. To accelerate to the first “hundred” of such a car will need only 3.9 seconds.

In the future, the appearance of a hybrid version of the power plant is not ruled out. In the Chinese car market, the car should appear in June this year.
