BYD F3 Sedan.jpg

BYD F3. 2005 to date (prod. over 100,000). 4- and 5-door sedan. F/F, 998 cm³ petrol–electric hybrid (3 cyl. DOHC), 1499, 1598 cm³ petrol (4 cyl. OHC). Toyota Corolla (E120) clone from BYD, with four-door sedan looking derivative, while F3R hatchback quite a smart redo with rear end similar to Daewoo Lacetti 5. Exported to Ukraine. Broke 10,000-per-month sales’ barrier January 2007; 100,000th model produced in June. First production plug-in electric car, using BYD’s background in batteries, from December 2008, initially for government officials. Plain and dull, but a popular car in mainland China.

Manufacturing location: Xi’an, China

Marque: BYD
