BYD launched their all new BYD Qin plugin hybrid yesterday evening, the new car has already proven itself capable of tackling some of China’s best supercars at a recent drag race where the 1.5T powered car used its dual drivetrains to deliver some punishment to top performance vehicles.

Pricing in China for the Qin has been set at 189,800RMB and 209,800RMB for the choice of two models, in addition the Chinese central government will give an additional subsidy of 35,000RMB on top whilst regional governments may offer more on top.

The Qin comes as a replacement for the last generation BYD F3 DM, the new vehicle is of course is much better with its 1.5T engine producing 154BHP (113kW) and the electric drivetrain producing 110kW for a combined BHP of over 300BHP and sending the Qin to 100kph from 0 in just 5.9 seconds, however the top speed has been limited to 185km/h. BYD’s own dual clutch gearbox is at the heart of the Qin.

Under pure electric mode the Qin can travel for 70km, and under combined conditions the gasoline engine uses just 1.6L per 100km traveled.

BYD’s own iron phosphate battery system is at the center of the Qin, but BYD have managed to half the weight of the original battery system that was installed in the original DM. The Qin is not all about saving power either, it comes with multiple driving modes such as EV+Sport, HEV+ECO, HEV+Sport, which should add some driving pleasure.
