Main information about BYD Ming

BYD Tang DM-i

The information about the BYD Ming was first exposed in China. It is a full-size SUV with dimensions of 5100/2000/1750 mm with a wheelbase of 3000 mm. For comparison, it is 230 mm longer, 50 mm wider, and 25 mm higher than the Tang crossover. The Ming’s wheelbase is 180 mm longer than the Tang. However, the curb weight of this flagship SUV is 2500 kg, which is only 55 kg more than the Tang DM-p.

BYD Qin L adopts brand’s latest Dragon Face design language

There is no information about the exterior styling of the BYD Ming. However, CarNewsChina assumes it will adopt the BYD’s latest Dragon Face design language similar to the Qin L (see specs here) sedan. We do think it will be positioned not as an off-road SUV but as a city driver because its ground clearance is only 185 mm.

According to current information, the BYD Ming crossover will be equipped with the DM-p plug-in hybrid powertrain system. It consists of a 2-liter turbocharged ICE and two electric motors, providing 4WD and over 600 hp. The Ming’s zero-to-hundred acceleration time is 3.9 seconds. So, it is 0.4 second faster than the Tang DM-p SUV.

The BYD Ming will have seven seats inside. There is no further information about this SUV’s cabin. However, it will most likely adopt the BYD’s signature combination of an LCD instrument panel and a 15.6-inch floating rotatable screen.

BYD Ming’s elder brother

Denza N9 SUV

Interestingly, the BYD Ming SUV will have a high-end cousin under the Denza brand. It will be called N9. The Denza N9 will rival other luxury crossovers like Li Auto L9 and Aito M9. It hints the cheaper BYD Ming SUV will rival the more affordable Li L8, Li L7, and Aito M7. The Ming’s price range will probably lie in 300,000 – 350,000 yuan (41,350 – 48,200 USD) range.
