BYD plans

Post by coulomb »

I've started this forum because BYD seem to have plans for Australia. I'm not sure what to believe about some of the claims made by the importer, Nexport, e.g. a 500 km range car for under AU$35 000 by early 2022.

I see they will be releaseing a couple of vans here shortly, and they are priced quite sharply too. $35k or something. Any tradie worth their tax concessions would be mad not to get one.

Not just the old world, I put in a request for information etc with evdirect in regards to the T3 van and it was some 3+ weeks before I even had a response from them. Been a bit of back and forwards with phones calls and emails in the last few days just trying to get information from them that I need to know. Giving serious consideration to purchasing a T3 van. These from what I can tell are a BYD version of the Nissan env200.

If anyone has any thoughts about these vans please respond.

Cheers.

From BYD T3 electric van in Australia this year from $35,000 (Car Expert).

They're looking pretty good, as long as service, parts, etc can be sorted to the satisfaction of Australian businesses.

I just got a reservation on T3 van this morning. Expected delivery sometime in October, I hope these vans prove to be a good thing they have an 8 year/500,000 KLM warranty on the battery and 6 years/150.000klm on the rest of the van.

This image, with the opera house in the background, NSW plates, and even the EV triangle, makes it look like they must be close:

From Australia’s cheapest electric vehicle: China’s BYD promises sub-$35,000 van, here this year. [ Edit: Actually, that was from May this year. ]

But performance may be disappointing:
  • "However, the T3 powertrain struggles when compared the competition – drive comes from an AC permanent magnet synchronous motor, sending a tame 70kW/180Nm to the front wheels via a single-speed transmission.

    An official spec sheet notes the vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0-50km/h in a claimed 6.5 seconds, on the way to an electronically-limited top speed of just 100km/h."

I see that Amarex have been using them in the US:
