BYD E6.jpg

BYD E6/BYD e6. 2011–21 (prod. n/a). 5-door wagon. F/F, 48, 57, 82 kWh electric. Expensive electric car, with launch delayed to 2011 from original 2009 promises. Pilot taxi programme in Shenzhen. BYD claimed 300 km from a single charge on the original model; Bitauto testing managed 200 km with 20 per cent capacity to spare. Very spacious and quiet, and felt like a petrol-engined car behind the wheel. Battery capacity and available power improved through the run. Officially became the e6 when BYD released other e models.

Manufacturing location: Shenzhen, China

Marque: BYD | Model: BYD e6 | Successor: BYD e6 (2021–)
