The S6DM incorporates extended range electric technology, capable of travelling over 60 kilometres purely on electric power and 500 kilometres when using the dual technology (DM). A technology which has been efficiently tested with the BYD -F3DM- saloon car, of which there are already models in our country thanks to Bergé Automoción, the brand’s distributor in Spain.

With this model BYD has become the first manufacturer to offer an extended range 4WD SUV, with some of its main features being:

  • The possibility for the driver to select the vehicle’s traction, between a 2 and 4 wheel drive
  • Independent electric motors for each axle (10 Kw for the front axle and 75 Kw for the rear axle)
  • 6 gear dual clutch transmission
