Chinese electric car maker BYD launches an all electric MPV
For the B2B market, BYD has launched BYD e6 all electric MPV with a starting price of INR 29.6 lakhs, ex-showroom. In terms of range, the e6 has a 71.7 kWh Blade battery that can get you 520 kilometres in the city and 415 kilometres when fully charged. To put this in perspective, these numbers dwarf the number of EVs currently available in India. The e6 has a 70 kWh electric motor that produces 180 Nm of torque and can propel the MPV to a top speed of 130 kilometres per hour. India's BYD Electric MPV Both AC and DC fast charging are supported by the BYD Electric MPV. In 35 minutes, the battery goes from 30% to 80% of its capacity with the DC fast charging technology. BYD's Blade Battery is said to be extremely dependable and safe by the company. Tests like nail penetration, furnace heating to 300 degrees Celsius, and 260 percent overcharging have all been passed with flying colours. Regenerative braking is also included in the MPV's systems, and it can begin regenerating energy as low as 2 kilometres per hour. All-new e6 is a feature-rich product. A 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with CN95 air filtration, a rearview camera, and speed-sensing auto-locking are just some of the features included in this vehicle.
Select cities in India, such as Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Chennai, Kochi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Vijayawada, will have the All-New e6. The Ex-showroom price for the 7kW charger is INR 29.6 L, while the MPV is available for INR 29.15 L without the charger. BYD India is currently focusing on expanding its dealer network in the cities mentioned above. In addition, BYD offers a 3-year/1.25-liter warranty on vehicles, an 8-year.5-liter warranty on battery cells, and an 8-year/1.5-liter warranty on traction motors (whichever is earlier). The BYD e6 has no direct competition in the Indian market at this time. There is currently no all-electric MPV on the market. Tata Motors dominates the B2B electric vehicle market with its wide range of electric vehicles. Tata's lack of similar-sized MPVs in its stable means that any EV version of its current model is unlikely to be launched in the near future.
BYD India Sales Director said that "We are extremely pleased to finally bring our globally tested All-New e6 to the Indian market," referring to BYD's new electric vehicle. We believe the All-New e6 will be a big hit in the Indian B2B market because of its focus on safety, reliability, interior space, and economic viability. Additionally, we've incorporated some of the best-in-class features into the driving experience, both in terms of driving comfort and interior features. For our customers and the industry as a whole, the total cost of ownership will be a huge benefit. More product ranges are in the works, and we are thrilled to be a part of India's EV revolution." Ketsu Zhang, BYD India's Executive Director, added: "We are delighted to launch the All-New e6 in order to meet India's Electric Revolution goals with our premium green technology." In our opinion, this is the ideal and most strategic time for BYD India to gain traction in India's key markets. Our goal is to meet or exceed the expectations of our local customers, and I am confident that the All-New e6 and additional product offerings in the future will do just that.
