The BYD Qin L belongs to BYD’s Dynasty series which includes Qin, Tang, Song, Yuan, and Han. According to BYD, it is positioned above the Qin PLUS, a compact sedan.

The Qin L’s exterior stays in line with the design language of the BYD Han. The front headlights are more elongated. It has a large grille built into the bumper. The side profile exhibits two distinct character lines resembling the Han. The dimensions of the new car are 4830/1900/1495 mm with a wheelbase of 2790 mm. Compared to the current Qin Plus model with dimensions of 4765/1837/1495 mm and a wheelbase of 2718 mm, the Qin L is larger overall.

Similar to the Han, the car showcases a taillight design with traditional Chinese knot patterns. The bumper also has air deflectors, giving the rear end a refreshed look.

Inside, there is a fully digital dashboard that complements a sizable central touchscreen. The steering wheel appears to be sporty with built-in controls. Below the central touchscreen, there appears to be a wireless charger. Since the Qin L has a longer wheelbase than the Qin Plus, it should be more spacious for the rear passengers. The car is expected to house the latest infotainment system from BYD.
