SUV version of Han EV? BYD’s new Tang EV exposure, the body is lengthened with 7 seats and the battery life is 700km.

Although "Wei Xiaoli" has always been the "popular fried chicken" in the field of new energy in China, BYD is the only independent brand that can compete with Tesla in terms of sales volume. In October, BYD sold 88,898 passenger cars, of which new energy vehicles accounted for 90%, reaching 80,003, up 262.9% year-on-year. Behind the hot sale, BYD insists on the strategy of DM-i plug-in, EV with two legs and quick march. This is not the case. With the listing of Tang DM (parameter picture) -i, the new Tang EV is coming soon.

Judging from the declaration information currently exposed, compared with the version on sale, the new Tang EV has changed to the Dragon Face 3.0 design language exclusive to BYD Pure Electric Family, which is more obviously different from the fuel version and the hybrid version, and even a bit like the SUV version of Han EV. Specifically, the enclosed air intake grille is connected with the matrix LED headlights on both sides by a heavy chrome trim strip, and the "Tang" embossed logo is adopted, which is very advanced and sentimental. The three-stage front enclosure looks sporty, and the design of the two-side air ducts runs through the prominent chrome trim, which not only makes the front face wider, but also has a sense of layering.

The side of the car body doesn’t change much, and the roof leans slightly backward, with a straight and high waistline, showing a posture ready to go, while the suspended roof with a brand-new large-size petal-shaped wheel hub adds a little fashion and dynamic atmosphere. The penetrating taillights at the rear are not absent, but the rear enclosure has been redesigned to more echo the sports style of the front. In terms of body size, the length, width and height of the new Tang EV are 4900/1950/1725mm respectively, the wheelbase is 2820mm, and the body length is increased by 30mm. Other data remain the same, and the car continues to provide a seven-seat layout, so the ride space performance continues to maintain its advantages compared with competing products at the same level.

The interior is not expected to change much. Referring to the current model, the brown and black two-color steering wheel with piano paint panel, microfiber suede fabric and diamond-shaped leather seat fully highlights the sense of luxury. The full LCD instrument panel and the reversible large-size central control panel, together with the atmosphere lights, effectively enhance the scientific and technological atmosphere. Finally, in terms of power, the new Tang EV will be equipped with a model TZ200XSAB motor with a maximum power of 168kW, which is lower than the 180kW version of the current model. In terms of battery life, the new car is still equipped with iron phosphate, but the working life will reach 700 kilometers, so the power reduction is acceptable.

Lithium blade battery

On the whole, the improvement of BYD’s new Tang EV in terms of face value and size is very pleasing. If the news of 700km battery life is true, it will undoubtedly show BYD’s strong strength in the field of new energy again. As for the price, it is estimated that the starting price of the new car will remain at around 280,000 yuan with reference to the starting price of the current model of 279,500 yuan. It is reported that the new car will be officially unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show in 2021. More information about the new car has yet to be further released by the official, and we will continue to pay attention to it. Then, what do you think of BYD’s new Tang EV? Please leave a comment.
