The Han EV will be sold in China at first. Its extended-range version will sell at 229,800 RMB (approximately $32,800), the extended-range variant of the premium model will be priced at 255,800 RMB (about $36,500), and the 4WD high-performance version will sell at 279,500 (about $40,000) RMB. Besides, the PHEV version, Han DM, will sell at 219,800 yuan (about $31,400).
Integrating the most advanced technologies in the electric vehicle industry, the Han boasts formidable performance combined with stylish craftsmanship. As the world's first mass-produced model that uses BYD's ultra-safe Blade Battery, the Han EV sets new standards for EVs worldwide in terms of safety, performance and luxury.
Mr. Wang Chuanfu, President of BYD Co., Ltd., said, "The Han has taken ten years from the concept stage to formal mass production,"
In terms of performance, the Han series comes with the world-first MOSFET motor control module, which fuels the car's record-breaking 3.9 second 0-100km/h acceleration. At the same time, Han's braking distance requires only 32.8 meters from 100km/h to a standstill. The Han EV's extended-range version's impressive 605- kilometer cruising range also gives it the world's highest energy recovery rating, while a double silver-coated windshield and other energy-saving measures meet the real needs of users over its lifetime. The Han DM hybrid model comes with 81 kilometers of pure- electric cruising range and over 800 kilometers of integrated range, along with five different power modes.
The Han also sets a new benchmark for EV luxury. BYD's new Dragon Face design language blends the best of Eastern and Western design aesthetics. From its striking front grille, its Dragon Claw tail lights and other features, the car's stylized design creates a striking, confident vehicle that defines a new era for Chinese-made luxury vehicles. The interior is equipped with solid wooden panels, high-quality Napa leather seats, aluminum trims and other high-end materials rarely used in other high-end luxury vehicles.
