Pioneering technology
The electric sedan Han, one of the numerous models from BYD, made it to Europe, but is only sold in “homeopathic doses”, says Fintl. The model has innovations to offer, such as BYD’s own lithium iron phosphate battery, which is considered particularly safe and cheap. In the recently presented BYD Seal model, the battery is integrated into the body as a load-bearing component. “In this respect, BYD is even overtaking Tesla,” says technology expert Fintl. The industry is already talking about the seal as the “Tesla killer”.
