After Qin, BYD is Prepping Tang

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

BYD is continuing with its Chinese dynasty themes with the introduction of the Tang SUV after creating the Qin plugin hybrid sedan which will launch in the next few months.

The Tang is thought to be heavily based on the original BYD S6 SUV which BYD have already updated with the introduction of a more comprehensive BYD S7 SUV at the Guangzhou Auto Show, the new S7 packs BYD’s own self developed 2.0T engine and dual clutch gearbox which will form the power pack for the new Tang SUV.

As with the Qin sedan BYD are planning to make turbo assisted displacement with its electric drivetrain capability which will propel the SUV from standing to 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds putting it in the super car league. Interestingly, early rumors indicate that the Tang will be slightly smaller than the current S6 to push it into the compact SUV segment which will help keep weight down and speed up.

One thought comes to mind, will BYD’s dynastic range follow up with the addition of Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties before bringing a 1949 Socialism model?

    Xia, Shang, Han, etc. are great, but leave out the Yuan and the Qing.

    And I’m sure they are praying that no auto industry “boxer rebellion” rears its ugly head.

    Sort of like Chinese submarines; see Ming-Class, Qin-class, Han-class, and so on.

    When I think of the Qin, I think of the planned Type 097 SSBNs which will be loaded up with ballistic missiles. Tang becomes the Type 095 SSN nuclear attack submarines which are supposed to be equivalent to 1970s / 1980s US subs.

    WHY HASN’T THE BYD S7 BEING MADE A FULLY PLUG-IN ELECTRIC CAR USING THE BYD E6 DRIVE TRAIN AND BATTERIES. IT WOULD BE A BEST SELLER IF IT IS MADE A FULLY PLUG-IN ELECTRIC CAR TO COMPETE WITH THE TESLA MODEL S COMING TO CHINA SOON, THEY CAN ALSO COME WITH A PLUG-IN REEV HYBRID VERSION TO COMPETE WITH GM VOLT USING THE BYD E6 DRIVE TRAIN AND BATTERIES WITH A HIGHLY EFFICIENT ALL FUEL RUNNING GENERATOR ON BOARD TO KILL RANGE ANXIETY AMONG ELECTRIC CAR BUYERS TO BOOST THE NEXT GENERATION SUV MEGA SALES SUCCESSES OF ALL TIMES.
