BYD reveals second generation plug-in hybrid, the Qin concept
APRIL 17, 2012
China Car Times

BYD revealed the “Qin” concept, which will become the company’s 2nd generation plug-in hybrid. Their first plug-in hybrid, the F3DM was introduced in 2008 but didn’t have strong sales, like most green vehicles in China.

Like the F3DM, it will feature two modes of operation: hybrid mode (HEV) and pure electrical (EV). According to BYD, this car will vastly outperform its predecessor.

The F3DM needed 16 kWh of electricity to run 60km, while the Qin will run 50km for 10 kWh. The new battery weighs half of what it used to. And the Qin will also be quicker: 6.9 seconds 0-100 km/h versus the F3DM’s 10.5s.
