Dragon Face Design

Striking front grille

The Han EV adopts BYD’s Dragon Face design language that blends Eastern and Western design aesthetics. The contour edges have become curved, and the air intake decorations on both sides have changed from straight lines to curved lines.

The updated Han DM-i and DM-p have also been optimized. The outline of the front grille is more rounded, and the outer outline of the grille has been chrome-plated. The density of the grille scale has been reduced. The decorative lines of the air intakes on both sides have changed from straight lines to arcs.

Dragon Claw tail lights

At the rear, the structure of the taillights has changed where the chrome-plated decoration in the middle is removed. The design of the lower bumper has been re-optimized, increasing the overall sportiness of the vehicle.
