Currently, nearly 20% of BYD sales come from the BYD Qin series (the Qin series includes three sedans: Qin EV, Qin Plus EV, and Qin Plus PHEV). Therefore, the replacement of BYD Qin series models significantly impacts BYD. In the context of the massive price war in the Chinese automotive market, BYD has recently updated or introduced several models (Qin Plus DM-i, Han EV, Tang DM-i, e2) that are cheaper than their predecessors. These are the means by which BYD wants to achieve its annual target of 3-3.6 million cars.
