It’s BYD’s first mass-produced model that uses the company’s ultra-safe Blade Battery. Thanks to the battery, the model can run up to 605 kilometers (376 miles) in NEDC cycle on one single charge. The Han’s roof uses advanced laser brazing technology, while its 1500HS thermoformed steel is the most ever used for any comparable Chinese automobile. Other notable safety features include 11 standard airbags and six cameras, highly-efficient air purification filters, and more.
