byd BYD F1 gets named changed to BYD F0

 As BYD plan on entering more and more overseas markets, its probably in BYD’s best interests to avoid such naming errors that may lead to upset parties forming to bring copyright infringements against the fledgling company, obviously design issues are another matter. The BYD F1 F0 is currently in production and dealers are accepting deposits for the car, priced from 40,800rmb to 55,800rmb.

    Hey Ash!

    First off I wanna congratulate on the great work you’re doing with CCT!

    I’m not getting together the 140K for the Roewe 550 right away so I might just buy a sub 50K car for the first year in China.
    The F1 (or F0) seems to be the smallest evil since I reckon they’re all of bad quality and the BYD, since it’s a copy, still has the best looks ….

    Do you know when the first cars will be delivered and wether the cheapest version has AC standart?

    I don’t need much, just 4 wheels, an engine, a steering wheel and some kind of breaking device … and an aircon.

    Thanks ahead and keep up the good work!
