  1. No hybrid? BYD is making a mistake.
    BYD never did make a hybrid anyway. It made a PHEV that went by the unknown description, “dual mode”. Why didn’t they just compete directly with Prius and make a too cheap to resist HEV available? There’s no range anxiety with a hybrid, and that’s where BYD is going to have to go sooner or later. People expect it of a battery company that’s got no business fooling around with ICE.
