The BYD F3 was BYD’s claim to fame in 2008 when the car first appeared, it gave BYD a heroic rise followed by an unprecedented fall following waves of quality concerns from consumers. For a time, BYD preferred to make everything in house from windshields to windscreen wipers but the company quickly realized that they could not master the quality levels of everything and again went back to relying on external suppliers and had a greater focus on technology levels within their cars.

The F3 is coming back to the market with a more individual styling that helps if differ away from the Toyota Corolla design on which it was originally based. The below images from China’s Patent Office indicate that the car will be given a fairly unique design, at least by BYD standards. Even more interesting is the choice of displacement, the older F3′s came with 1.5L or 1.6L, this time the F3 will be given a 1.2 turbo engine and a 1.5 turbo engine, and for those that wish to have naturally aspirated engines a 1.5L will be offered as well. In addition, BYD are planning to use their six speed dual clutch gearbox alongside a six speed manual offering. Pricing is expected to be lower than the current flagship Su Rui sedan which is priced from 80,000RMB to 120,000RMB so perhaps theBYD F3 2013 Facelift BYD F3 Readies for China

    the fiuture of Chinese Auto companies is with total electric sport cars like the Tesla, and hybrids with a dual mode range. The American marketplace was promised this in 20089 and still has not happened. BYD needs car sale offices in USA and Not just in California which has too much competetion in electrics anyway. The USA, east coast is a better marketplace for BYD than west coast of USA!

    BYD will come to the US first with CV’s and then branch out into passenger cars as the market grows.
