Spy shots showing that BYD is working on a facelift for the BYD F0 mini car. The facelifted BYD F0 is expected to debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and launch on the China car market is scheduled for the second half of this year. The facelift includes a completely new grille and bumper, both with more chrome because Bling is currently King in China.
The BYD F0 was launched on the China car market in early 2009 and hasn’t changed much since then. Price starts at 36.900 yuan and ends at 46.900 yuan, making the F0 one of the cheapest mini cars on the Chinese auto market. Power comes from a 1.0 liter 3-cylinder petrol engine with 70hp and 90nm. Top speed is 151km/h.
The facelifted BYD F0 will continue to use the 1.0 liter engine. There are yet no plans for an electric version. Price will remain about the same.
