Electric vehicles are rapidly gaining popularity in India, owing to rising gasoline expenses. As a result, people desired to upgrade their vehicles to electric vehicles.
However, there are too many electric vehicle options on the market; BYD enters the country with an EV; choose BYD E6 Electric.
It was a wise option to choose with the BYD E6 Electric, as it outperforms most other electric vehicles on the market.
Exterior: 2021 BYD E6
Few were impressed with how it looked because it was an antiquated design automobile, and we needed a futuristic design to stand out from the crowd when it came to an electric car.
However, BYD has added some excellent design touches to the E6, such as the distinctive nose style with small hexagonal cut-outs in place of a typical grille, which the company claims use its ‘Dragon Face’.
Interior: 2021 BYD E6
A well-designed dashboard greets you, with a free-standing 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system taking centre stage. All of the climatic controls are integrated into the touchscreen, so there aren’t many physical buttons.
It has a snappy touchscreen infotainment system, and its Android-based operating system and onboard Wi-Fi let it to use apps from the App Store.
This screen can be rotated 90 degrees to become a portrait-oriented screen, which is a really cool party trick. The screen can display more information in programmes like Google Maps and is easier to navigate for smartphone users in portrait mode.
Telescopic steering wheel adjustment, steering-mounted media controls, keyless entry and go, and a tyre pressure monitoring system are among the other amenities. Both front chairs are very nicely padded and offer six-way manual adjustment.
Battery and Charging:
It says that their Blade battery technology is one of the safest on the market. BYD’s faith in the Blade battery’s safety standard is well-founded since it passed its internal safety testing with flying colours. The e6 has a claimed WLTC range of 520km in the city and 415km on the highway on a full charge.
The BYD e6 has three charging options: a 60kW DC fast charger that takes just 90 minutes to fully charge, a 40kW AC wall-mounted fast charger that takes two hours to fully charge, and a 6.6kW AC slow charger that takes about 12 hours to fully charge.
BYD made this decision after speaking with a number of fleet buyers who claimed they didn’t require the slower AC charging capability after trying the eMPV because it would ground the vehicle for a longer period of time.
India’s first eMPV, BYD(Build Your Dreams):
The e6 GL trim costs Rs 29.15 lakh, while the e6 GLX trim costs Rs 29.60 lakh.
It’s a 5-seater, and at this price, it’s missing out on a slew of amenities including a wireless charger, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and connected car technology.
The low running costs of Rs 1.59 per km are a real-world range that is impressive.
The Toyota Innova Crysta is now being used by business operators; therefore the E6 is largely aimed at them. In addition, BYD offers an 8-year/5,000-kilometer battery warranty.
