The space utilisation of the Blade battery has increased by over 50% compared with traditional battery packs, providing enhanced energy density and therefore a longer range.

e-Platform 3.0

BYD’s third generation of electric car platform is even safer thanks to the structural improvements and higher efficiency provided by the world’s first 8-in-1 electric powertrain as standard.
