Chinese electric vehicle and battery firm BYD announced on July 27 that it will participate in the 2022 Paris Motor Show in October, where it will launch new energy passenger cars in Europe to be sold and delivered in Q4 of this year.
As one of the five major auto shows in the world, the Paris Motor Show has great influence in the auto industry and attracts major auto brands and manufacturers from all over the world. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the biennial Paris Motor Show has been suspended for four years, and now it is finally going to return. The 2022 Paris Motor Show will be held together with Equip Auto from October 17 to 23.
As a new energy vehicle company, BYD has already appeared in major industry exhibitions around the world. As early as 2008, BYD brought the F3DM model to the Geneva International Auto Show, which was the first time the firm appeared on European auto show. The F3DM model is the world’s first mass-produced hybrid powertrain new energy vehicle.
BYD’s sales of new energy passenger cars exceeded 640,000 units in the first half of this year, up 165.4% year-on-year, and the number of customers of its new energy vehicles exceeded 2.1 million. With more than 27 years of battery R&D, BYD has made continuous breakthroughs in technical fields such as blade batteries, DM-i hybrid and e-platform 3.0.
In Europe, BYD has been deeply involved in the new energy vehicle market for more than 20 years. In the field of commercial vehicles, its pure electric buses have been operated in more than 20 countries and more than 100 cities in Europe. In the field of passenger cars, BYD’s Tang EV has been well received by local consumers since arriving in Norway in August last year.
At present, BYD has reached strategic cooperation with many high-quality dealers in Europe to provide local consumers with one-stop services.
