BYD to heads to U.S. in 2011

BYD F3DM

BYD, the Chinese company that makes 65% of the world’s nickel-cadmium batteries and 30% of the world’s lithium-ion mobile phone batteries, has ambitious plans for hybrid and electric automobiles.

According to the official site, BYD is targeting 2011 to get the F3DM into the United States. Now, BYD is working hard on building its cars to suit American drivers’ tastes. “BYD’s information technology division has been in business in the U.S. for 10 years. We understand Americans’ concerns about safety and quality. So in designing this car for the U.S. market, we will certainly meet these requirements,” BYD’s principal says. For now, BYD will focus on China’s domestic market. Priced at about $22,000 each, the cars are a bit pricey for average consumers, so BYD will first aim at government and corporate buyers.

The E6 is an all-electric, five-passenger people mover that has a range of 250 miles, can be fully charged in about 10 hours by plugging into a standard household outlet, and takes only 10 minutes to charge to 50 percent capacity.

To exhibit cars on the main floor is the first time for Chinese automakers, and F3DM is the first Chinese-made plug-in hybrid electric car.
