BYD Qin is Delayed Till December

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The BYD Qin was expected to launch on November 12th this month, but according to Chinese media reports that launch date has now been pushed back to December citing BYD’s issues with government subsidies for new energy vehicles which would have seen the Qin eligible for a 35,000RMB subsidy from the government.

The Qin carries a 1.5T mated to BYD’s much talked about iron battery supported electric system which can travel for 70km on a single charge.

BYD are stating that local governments are being slow to roll out their own local subsidies which is making for a difficult market for the 200,000RMB car which means the car is going to be delayed until December at the earliest.

    BYD is notorious for delaying the launches of their new energy vehicles. Usually you need to add at least 6 months onto what ever the first date they claim it will be on the market!

    Frankly, I don’t believe that this is as fast as shown in those videos [one against a bunch of hi-po cars (old and new which is weird) and a video of people spotting it on a road moving past them].

    I have seen the car driving around Long Gang quite a few times in the past month. It looks like a cheap car with lots of lights all over the back. Even if it is fast, who drives just in a straight line? That isn’t the fun part of driving. Brakes are undersized for using that much power. Why would they have it race a bunch of random people in used cars. Anyone volunteering to drag race already drives their card hard. An Evo can’t beat 5.9 seconds? What is wrong with it?

    I like the look of the car, its nothing overly exciting, but it stands out. The real kicker is that simply awful sword-like light on the back end that looks like it was dragged from an 80′s tattoo book.
