Currently, the Fang Cheng Bao brand has only one model on sale the Bao 5 with the more upmarket Bao 8 set to start sales around the third quarter of this year. The Bao 3 will round out the trio and be the smallest and most affordable of the off-road optimized PHEV SUVs.

Inside the Bao 3 we can see from the spy shots that it largely follows on from the style first seen in the Bao 5. Carried through on the center console are the same chunky buttons and shifter with a generally simple and tough look about the inside. There is a dashboard mounted infotainment screen and this is expected to be the same 15.6-inch size as in the Bao 5 (see specs). The steering wheel has a four-spoke design and has both buttons and adjustment wheels.

Front and rear shots show distinctive light clusters with a split two line look. From what can be made out under the camouflage the front has a muscular two section look about it along with a thin grille. While we still have no definite news on the size it’s thought that the length might be over 4600 mm and the wheelbase around 2750 mm. From the spy shots we can see there will be an external spare wheel along with a roof spoiler.

The car rides on BYD’s DMO platform which is optimized for PHEV off-roaders. Powertrain will likely be in line with the one on the Bao 5 meaning that the PHEV system will be built around a 1.5 liter turbocharged BYD476ZQF engine with maximum power of 143 kW. While the Bao 3 will have dual electric motors it’s previously been declared that the Bao 3 will have maximum power of more than 310 kW and so it likely the electric motors will be less powerful. In the case of the Bao 5 the front motor has 200 kW of power and can deliver 360 Nm of torque while the rear motor has 285 kW and 400 Nm torque. System combined figures are 505 kW of power and 760 Nm of torque. The Bao 5 comes with a 31.8 kWh battery pack.
