BYD, the Chinese auto giant backed by Warren Buffett, said today that it sold 10,105 units of its Han models, the fourth consecutive month of sales gains, bringing the model's cumulative sales to 28,467 since launch.
BYD announced the launch of its flagship new energy sedan, the Han, on July 12, with three Han EV models and one Han DM (Dual-mode) model.
After subsidies, the three Han EVs are priced at RMB 229,800 yuan, 255,800 yuan and 279,500 yuan respectively. The Han DM is priced at 219,800 yuan.
The Han EV is equipped with BYD's Blade Battery, which was officially launched in March. The NEDC driving range is 605 km.
With a 0-100km acceleration time of 3.9 seconds, the Han EV is the fastest mass-produced new energy sedan in China.
The Han DM 4WD Performance version accelerates from 0-100 km in 4.7 seconds, making it the fastest plug-in hybrid sedan in China.
The Han DM offers 81 kilometers of NEDC combined range on electric power and over 800 kilometers of combined range.
On November 16, BYD said the 20,000th Han EV had rolled off the production line at its Shenzhen plant, four months after the model's delivery began in July.
BYD said the model's monthly production capacity would soon exceed 10,000 units, meaning it is out of capacity hell and deliveries are expected to go higher in the future.
