Denza, for those unfamiliar with it, is both a car brand and a car model, both having been birthed in February 2011, when Daimler AG and BYD established a joint company which was the first in China to feature New energy Vehicles exclusively.

Stereotypically Chinese-named Shenzen BYD Daimler New Technology (BDNT) will introduce the electric-powered Denza in April 2014, at the Auto China trade fair from Beijing, where its first dealership will be opened in the summer.

Two more Denza dealerships are currently getting built in Shanghai and Shenzen. Based on the previous generation of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class (W245), the Denza has finished its hot summer testing programs in the South of China and is now about to begin cold weather testing in the North-Eastern part of the Middle Kingdom.
