Car manufacturers in China have been mesmerized with adding suffixes like “max”, “plus” and “pro” to their model names lately, often due to the practice of selling multiple generations of the same vehicle at the same.
A couple of days ago, we covered the BYD Yuan Pro EV, a cheap and cheerful sub-compact SUV with a 401 km range; Today, let’s look at another BYD Yuan with one of these confusing suffixes, the BYD Yuan Plus, courtesy of its submitted approval documentation!
The BYD Dolphin is a new compact electric car with a lot of style and the first BYD to carry the brand’s new logo. BYD has released a flock of pictures of the Dolphin’s interior, and it looks just and fancy as the outside. The 3-spoke steering wheel has a cool and sporty shape, with an almost-arty center. The free-standing digital instrument panel is relatively compact.
Compared to internal combustion vehicles, electric cars are often seen as expensive and experimental transportation for the rich – indeed, it takes time for technology to trickle down to the average car. Still, that time may be here sooner than you’d think!
This is the third part of our series on new petrol powered cars from China – June 2021. For background and more cars see Part 1 and Part 2. We immediately continue with the car you see atop this post; the Exeed TX 2.0T.
I like Chongqing Auto Show. Compared with Shanghai Auto, which traditionally takes place in April, Chongqing is much smaller but more pragmatic. Shanghai is more about showing muscles, the latest technology, and concept cars. “Launch in 2025” was the favorite phrase there. There is lots of PR. But at Chongqing, automakers show more cars you can actually buy now or soon. My colleague Tycho would probably say this show is less focused on millennials. Let’s have a look at the three highlights of the show and one surprise.
BYD always had a great smell in commercial vehicles. They prove it again with the launch of the electric model e3 dedicated to driving schools. To meet the needs of such a niche market, the new model can simulate the manual transmission of fuel vehicles.
Time now for a closer look at the BYD Tang Ultimate Edition, the super speedy and hyper exclusive variant of the new BYD Tang SUV. The Tang Ultimate Edition is limited to 200 cars and costs 600.000 yuan (96.530 USD), but price goes down to 520.000 yuan (83.711 USD) when all green-car subsidies are included. Still a lot of money, especially since the base Tang starts at 220.000 yuan. So what do you get for all that extra cash? More power!, and then some.

Google makes it easy for you to make recommendations for your friends - for example, by clicking the +1 button on content you like. Some of your +1s may show your name and Google+ profile photo in ads, but you can opt out if you don't want to appear in ads. You can also visit the +1 tab on your Google+ profile to review and manage all of your +1's. Learn more about how to get to your +1 tab.
