The unnamed YangWang fastback SUV from BYD was spotted in China. It follows the brand’s distinguishing design language adopted by the U9 sports car and the U7 sedan. According to insiders, it will be officially unveiled this year with an electric powertrain.
Our regular readers know YangWang is a luxury NEV (new energy vehicle) brand under BYD. It was launched in 2023. Its model line comprises three models: the U9 sports car, the U8 SUV, and the U7 sedan. However, only the U8 off-roader is currently available for purchase with a price tag of over 1 million yuan (140K USD). YangWang continues the extension of the model line, and its latest addition, the fastback crossover, was recently spotted on the streets.
The official name of the fourth YangWang model wasn’t announced officially. According to several sources, it has two naming options: U7 GT and U6. We at CarNewsChina tend to the U6 variant. However, Chinese naming periodically turns unpredictable. So, we will avoid the usage of a specific name.

The spied YangWang fastback crossover wears heavy camouflage. Its proportions stay close to such models as Denza N7, Zeekr 001, and BYD Song L. The front end of YangWang’s fresh EV has the brand’s distinguishing headlights and a trapeze-shaped air intake. It has traditional side-view mirrors, retractable door handles, and five-spoke rims. From the back, the YangWang fastback SUV has a sporty spoiler and a single taillight unit. On the roof, it has a LiDAR sensor from RoboSense, a BYD-backed hi-tech company.
Inside, the YangWang’s new car follows the brand’s design language. Its center panel has three screens. An instrument cluster and a front passenger screen have a diameter of 23.6 inches. The main screen has a portrait layout and a diameter of 12.8 inches. The gear selector of the YangWang fastback SUV sits behind the three-spoke steering wheel. The center tunnel has two wireless charging pads. The front seats have a sporty shape with integrated headrests.
The spotted YangWang crossover is BEV with four electric motors. It stands on the BYD’s e4 platform. Its peak power output will most likely reach 960 kW (1,287 hp). The YangWang U7 sedan has the same power output.
