BYD launches an electric minivan

(Al-Bail 24): Many people wait and wait and wait. Will the Cybertruck come to Norway, or at least to Europe? What about Rivian, is it coming soon? Or an all-electric Chevrolet Silverado?

The answer is the same for all three. barely.

As for the Silverado, it was only priced. It should cost around $100,000 in the USA, which means a lot more if you get to Norway. So let's realize that there will not be a flood of large American trucks on Norwegian roads.

Everything about this car is absolutely crazy


The market for full-size pickup trucks priced at a million and a half or more is marginal. Additionally, manufacturers seem to be slow to roll them out. It seems that many of them are waiting for their manufacturing prices to fall, so the cars will be easier to sell. Cybertruck is a good example of this.

But there are those who are not waiting, because Chinese manufacturers do not just build long bridges on the weekend. They also throw themselves in and build new car models as soon as they get approval.

BYD launches an electric minivan

The latest is BYD, which now confirms that it will launch an electric competitor to the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, and Volkswagen Amarok. Let's get the Isuzu D-Max too.

What all of these have in common is that they are classified as so-called one-ton pickup trucks. It is also the size of a car that has been sold in large numbers in this country over the years. Now that the proportion of electric vehicles is approaching 90 percent, it is only natural that this commercial vehicle market will become electrified as well. It is already starting to become a need, and the demand for it will grow.

In fact, Elbil24 was at the factory in China last summer, where the BYD car will be manufactured. We also saw it with our own eyes, well camouflaged. At that time, the car was not intended for the European market, but now the tube had a different sound.

BYD also owns multiple brands, in the same way that VW owns VW, Audi, Skoda, and more. When we saw the car it was for another brand, with a different logo than BYD. It has now been renamed, so you don't have to introduce another brand to Europe.

Currently, we don't have details on the technical aspects, or what weights it should be able to handle. Pricing is of course also unknown, other than that it will certainly be competitive – if not price-leading. We're seeing trends towards BYD and other brands now focusing on the price of European manufacturers, so why not this one too?

We'll be back with more once we know more details.
