Fang Cheng Bao is an off-road brand launched by BYD last year. It currently sells a single model in China: the Bao 5 SUV (see specs). It entered the market in November last year. Its cumulative sales reached 21,316 units. BYD will launch two more models this year: the Bao 8 PHEV off-roader and the Bao 3 electric crossover. Now, BYD has unveiled official interior images of the Bao 8.

The interior styling of the Fang Cheng Bao Bao 8 stays in line with the Bao 5 off-roader. It is also similar to the BYD Shark pickup truck. Its center console adopts three screens. The first one is a digital instrument panel. The second one is a touch screen for the front passenger. Last but not least is the huge floating main screen.

The diameter of these screens has yet to be revealed. However, we think their dimensions stay in line with the Bao 5. This means the instrument panel and front passenger’s screen measure 12.3 inches, and the center monitor boasts a diameter of 15.6 inches.

The center tunnel of this PHEV beast has two wireless charging pads and a retractable gear selector. There is also a block of physical controls and a pair of cup holders. Under the center tunnel hides a spacious compartment. Another feature of the FCB Bao 8 is sturdy door cards with wooden trim.

The second row of the Fang Cheng Bao Bao 8 has two layout variants. The first one offers two independent electronically adjusted captain chairs with armrests. And the second option is more family-oriented, with a bench for three people. The second-row passengers can control climate and music with two screens in the center tunnel in front of them. The third row of the Bao 8 has two more seats. As a result, it is available with six or seven seats inside. There is no 5-seat variant, which is understandable because of the size of this off-road beast.

  1. But this beast is still a compromised beast because the beast has two distinct powertrains: one is an electric beast powertrain, and the other is a combustion engine beast powertrain. Couldn’t the Chinese make the beast just all electric or all combustion? That way, the beast can compete with either the Chevy Humvee or Ford Raptor.
