The BYD Song PLUS DM-i is one of the three DM-i models BYD put onto the market this year. The vehicle is equipped with the DM-i super hybrid system, which boasts a number of improvements, including less fuel consumption, faster acceleration, and smoother and quitter rides, said the automaker.
“The DM-i hybrid system is a masterpiece of BYD which will play a role as a disruptor of fuel vehicles' supremacy,” said Wang Chuanfu, BYD chairman and president. “It will transform the consumption structure of the Chinese auto market and drive us closer to the dream of clean, green travel.”
The BYD Song PLUS DM-i comes with two variants based on EV-only ranges, namely, 51km and 110km. Their fuel consumptions are 4.4L/100km and 4.5L/100km when batteries run out of electricity.
