The BYD Qin will be finally unveiled and available to the car buying public on November 12th in the company’s hometown in Shenzhen.

The Qin, named after China’s first emperor uses BYD’s own self developed 1.5T paired with an electric drivetrain which gives the car a combined output of 303bhp putting it up there with some of the most powerful electric hybrids on the market such as the Lexus LS hybrid range which cost considerably more. The 1.5T in the Qin is good for 150BHP whilst the remaining power comes from an electric motor stored in the same engine bay, power is routed through the front wheels by BYD’s own self developed dual clutch gearbox.

For those skeptical of BYD’s electric car claims the Chinese government routinely tests all cars prior to going on the market to give real world test figures of gasoline usage which can be compared against manufacturer figures. The Qin came out with one of the lowest ever results of just 2 Liters per 100 kilometers. Under pure electric conditions the Qin will travel for 50km before the 1.5T engine kicks in.

Pricing hasn’t yet been confirmed but it is thought to be in the 200,000RMB range which is about 32,000USD. Under government subsidies the Qin is eligible for a 35,000RMB subsidy which makes the car look highly attractive, especially as it is already priced on par with higher end compact cars such as the Buick Exelle GT (Buick Verano)
