FCB is a new brand under BYD focused on off-road SUVs. It sits between Denza and YangWang regarding pricing. The first Fang Cheng Bao model is Bao 5 (Leopard 5), which will hit the market soon with a price range of 289,800 – 349,800 yuan (39,600 – 47,800 USD).

In leaked screenshots, we see that Bao 3 adopts the brand’s design language with a sturdy body shape. It has a Fang Cheng Bao logo and a relatively small rectangular grille. A thin LED strip joins its headlights. The front bumper of the Fang Cheng Bao Bao 3 is trapeze-shaped. It increases the car’s approach angle.

According to previous information, the Bao 3 will be a bit bigger than the Atto 3 (Yuan Plus). We will remind you that the dimensions of the BYD’s international bestseller are 4455/1875/1615 mm with a wheelbase of 2720 mm.

Regarding the powertrain, the Bao 3 will become an all-electric model, unlike its elder brothers, the Bao 5 and Bao 8. It will have a twin-motor 4WD and an LFP battery from FinDreams, a BYD subsidiary. The power output of the Bao 3 is unknown. However, its price range should lie in the 200,000 – 300,000 yuan (27,300 – 41,000 USD) range. It will hit the market next year.

  1. This car may be an export product, contrary to it’s brothers. Why? Because it seems to be all-electric.
    Which is great, for a great looking – yet simple designed car.

    But, I can’t help asking – why does “all” (except NIO) not understand that we Europeans want stationcars/herregårdsvagn/station wagon – like the old models of Volvo V70, XC70, V90, XC90? All the sedans and “SUV’s” from China – even some (Atto3) with only two wheel drive… and a lot of so-called SUV’s with only 4 doors (where is the fifth?). And regarding the ATTO3 – which I like a lot, even bought one, twice as expensive as in China, and more expensive in Norway than Tesla 3 and Y. But it is not even possible to put a trailer hitch on it, then if you do you lose the warranty. Although you’re allowed to do it in Australia – on the exactly same car!

    Someone ought to inform the Chinese auto producers…

    Sorry, I seem to repeat myself a lot here….
