2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews

Main / BYD / 2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews




2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews : Those on the lookout for a new plug-in hybrid SUV have an interesting new option on the table with the upcoming release of the BYD Tang 542 plug-in hybrid SUV ó which may have a price tag as low as $35,000 when released in China, according to Car News China. Of course, this all only applies if you happen to live in China. For the time being anyways. Perhaps BYD will this year finally deliver on its promise to enter the American market? image The new 505-horsepower modelís name refers to its specs pretty directly ó 0-60 acceleration in under 5 seconds; 4-wheel drive; and a fuel-consumption of around 2-liters per 100 km. NiceÖ Here are further details courtesy of Gas2: Thus, 542, with the official specs giving the drivetrain 505 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque. Most of that comes from a pair of 150 horsepower electric motors (one on each axle), with a 205 horsepower 2.0 liter turbo also contributing. BYD claims an all-electric driving range of 50 miles per charge, and that 2-liters per 100 km works out to about 117 MPG. But the real draw here will be the price. Marketed at an aggressive $48,000 off the dealership lot, local and national incentives could bring the price down to just $35,000 in many parts of China. That is about half what the Tesla Model X will cost, the closest rival to the Tang 542, and also rivals many short-range electric cars as well. However, BYD also plans to offer a tricked-out version of the Tang with acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH of just 4.4 seconds and a $100,000 price tag. While not nearly as fast as the Tesla P85D, itíll still outpace most of its big-bodied competition. BYD Tang Worth noting here is that while BYD has yet to truly enter the American market with any consumer vehicles, it is planning to this year ó whether that means that weíll eventually see the Tang 542 SUV released here or not is an open question as of right now. more : BYD 2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews - 2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews - 2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews - 2015 BYD Tang hybrid SUV First Drive Reviews Redesign & Overviews
