BYD to showcase its electric Tang Luxury SUV at annual Concours d’ Elegance

BYD will showcase its battery-electric Tang luxury SUV at the Concours d’ Elegance in Pebble Beach, California 15 – 17 Auugust.


The Tang is being produced by a team at BYD’s Global Design Center in Shenzhen, China.

The model displays a variety of safety and convenience features, including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, intelligent temperature control, and a pedestrian collision warning system. It has an intelligent, rotatable pad to access apps.

The Tang has a range of about 310 miles on a charge. The all-wheel drive vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.



What a pity, it seems BYD is going ternary lithium.

I was hoping they would keep using LiFePo4 and I could buy one of their cars in my country in the future...No nickel, no Cobalt, that's what I understand as sustainable.

Also, LiFePo4 is finally getting cheap and competitive in China. You can already ~$120/kwh in many products.


If the selling price is right, this could be the most affordable new 310 miles e-SUV, on the International market place.
