The vehicle is powered by an advanced battery pack, codenamed Fe, which provides an autonomy of 400 km, without neglecting engine performance. For instance, the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is done in less than 8 seconds, with a maximum speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
“What sets the e6 apart from other pure electric vehicles are its size and performance. With current battery capacity limited, most other manufacturers have elected to focus on small, lightweight EVs that stress efficiency over performance and range,” BYD said.
“BYD, as a young brand with a rich history of IT development and cutting-edge battery R&D, has the drive and extroverted personality to take an unconventional approach and manufacture cars that embody the company's slogan, Build Your Dreams. That's the spirit and underlying philosophy behind the e6.”
Because it's especially addressed to families and particularly for city use, the e6 can be fully recharged in 60 minutes. And in case you're in a hurry, you can recharge 50 percent of the battery in nearly 10 minutes, BYD explained, praising the battery pack installed in the newly-released concept.
