Any idea whether distributors will bring in cars like BYD Tang and Song SUV, especially the 1.5T hybrid version? Very impressive performance and fuel economy, with practically all electronic stuff on the dash. Other models like BYD Tang and Qin are also very impressive.

Youtube has some videos of BYD Tang performance plug-in hybrid challenging some sports cars. Not surprising given its

0-100km/h in 4.9s. Likely to be much more expensive than the standard model.

It is selling very well in China. Most go for the Song because of its original design and price point. But a new and smaller Yuan is out. It has standard, manual, auto, and hybrid models. The hybrid model is the one that interests me. Warren Buffet wisely invested in this company.

 

The smaller Yuan

i see alot of BYD for phv, not sure if they sell to mass market. If price is good, it will be tempting though.

To me the biggest issue right now(for full time electric cars) is can it be fixed after an accident. Cos problem for cars such as Tesla. There's no fix. If the electric car is involved in an accident it's straight away go to scrap. There's no repair workshop of dealer network to fix the Tesla cars. Their cars are no doubt awesome but right up to the point where the car is involved in a traffic accident.

 

I do not know how it works here in Sgp in terms of car insurance for electric cars. The safety on electric cars are also a big question mark. Like if involve in a traffic accident whether there's any electrical leaks. It's strong enough to kill a person that's for sure. Fire hazard is another. How much fire fighters here know how to put out the fire on electric cars w/o electrocuting the passengers as a result. Things like that.


Arya...who would have thought?

You realized all of BYD cars are on blue/yellow license plate? They are considered trial/research vehicles and not licensed for sale to the general public.

The trial started in 2016 for a period of 8 years (until 2023). Now, it is only 2019 (3 years) so ... happy waiting.
