BYD Yuan Plus approval documents submitted!

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!
