BYD China, a leading battery maker has stepped into the electric cars arena by introducing its latest E6 electric car at the Beijing International Auto Show. Shaped much like that of a MPV, the BYD E6 will be built based on one of BYD’s previous electric vehicle platforms (known as the F6, China’s first mass production electric car). The BYD E6 will be a 5 seater with an acceleration of 0 to 100 kph of around 10 seconds. Top speed should be approximately 160 kph (100 mph), and the battery pack, which is located under the rear passenger seats, will be based on BYD’s own lithium-ion iron phosphate technology. What is more impressive about the E6 is that its range per charge is expected to be 300 km (186 miles).
