BYD's annual gala, saw the company unveil their vision of an electric crossover, the Dynasty concept electric SUV. The all-electric design study was penned by former Audi chief designer Wolfgang Egger, who is now BYD's new design director. The Dynasty concept was unveiled alongside the Song EV300 and the Song DM, the first from BYD's Song lineup of electric and hybrid vehicles.
“The trend to go electric is already irreversible. But where is the next growth area? There’s no doubt that it will be in consumer vehicles, most of them plug-in hybrid model,” Wang Chuanfu, Chairman and President of BYD.
BYD unveiled the Dynasty concept along with the Song electric and hybrid plug-in lineup to further deepen its development of electric powertrains and to provide greater green transportation solutions. They are also aiming to make an even greater push internationally by investing in world class technology and expertise that advances its vision of creating an eco-system of quality new energy products.
"Joining BYD provides an opportunity to help a young brand develop its design DNA to expand its global footprint. This concept vehicle will take BYD’s consumer vehicles in an exciting new direction, with design cues like its dragon-inspired exterior drawing inspiration from China’s rich cultural heritage," said Egger
"Green technology particularly electric vehicles, is the way of the future. And BYD will continue to support the electric vehicle development in the country,” said Mark Andrew Tieng STAR Corp. managing director.
