BYD couldn't be happier to announce that we are expanding our EV Portfolio for the European market. Our strategy includes a trial introduction of passenger cars in Europe, alongside longer-term plans to bring new BYD LCV and eTruck ranges to the European market. To mark the next phase of ambitious growth strategy, and following our well-established eBus presence in Europe, BYD will initially introduce the all new, full-electric, 2nd generation BYD 'Tang' compact SUV to the Norwegian market. Already one of the world's best-selling models as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), the BYD 'Tang' EV600 boasts a 520km range. Plans are also underway to bring to Europe later this year a full range of battery electric vehicles (BEV) for the commercial vehicle sector; including a panel van, 7.5-tonne and 19-tonne rigid distribution trucks, and a yard tractor. Isbrand Ho, BYD Europe Managing Director, said, "The Norwegian market is the natural choice for BYD to start this trial as we look to expand our EV presence in Europe. Norway is the most advanced market in Europe when it comes to the widespread adoption and usage of electric vehicles." He added "We will closely evaluate how the market performs, but, in the longer term, it is our aim to expand passenger car sales beyond Norway."
