BYD Tang EV 600 comes to Europe
BYD Entering Europe This Year Via Norway With Tang EV600 Electric SUV.
BYD Auto, China’s biggest electric vehicle manufacturer (and the world’s second-biggest behind Tesla), has detailed its passenger car and commercial vehicle expansion plans for Europe.
For its entry into Europe, BYD has chosen Norway, the continent’s most EV-friendly market. The Chinese giant will kick off the trial introduction of passenger cars in Europe by launching the BYD Tang EV600 in Norway later this year.
The all-electric midsize SUV boasts a driving range of 520 km (373 miles), according to the NEDC test cycle, and features permanent all-wheel drive. Pricing for the high-specification Tang EV600 will be announced when it goes on sale in Norway later this year.
The Tang is in that version good for a power of 490 hp, has a battery pack of 82.8 kWh on board and must be able to drive 520 km on a full battery according to the NEDC cycle. Fast charging from 30 to 80 percent should be done in half an hour. As we are used to from many EVs, the Tang is also fast: from 0-100 km / h is over in 4.4 seconds.
