A few months ago a picture of a forthcoming BYD concept car made its way to the internet showing a Porsche Cayenne with BYD logos, although it seems that it might have been a teaser to see what the public’s reaction would be or perhaps even fan art. Later renderings showed a Lexus RX inspired vehicle, which seems to have made it to the road testing stage of production:

The front end is considerably different from the last generation Lexus RX, but the rest of the body is very similar. BYD may have tried to give the old girl a new nose job with a new grill and sharper looking lights, but its still obvious where the original design cues came from. The S6′s interior looks to be different from the RX’s, the RX has a distinctive three pod binacle set up, where as the S6 has gone for a traditional scoop over the RPM, and speedometer dials. It looks like the S6 has a start-stop button for the engine, and also a USB plug for the stereo.

What power plant the S6 will be getting is still unknown, it might be the sleepy 2.0L unit that is used in the BYD F8 coupe which boasts a 0-100kph time of 14 seconds.

Still, its likely that this BYD S6 will retail for around 150,000rmb which is pretty much a bargain considering its a Lexus for beer money.
