Qin Plug-in Hybrid Now Available In China; Global By End Of 2015

  The BYD Qin plug-in hybrid car has officially launched in China.

  The Qin is described by BYD as a new and high tech, performance-based hybrid car intended to target key world markets.

  U.S. and European availability of a similar but probably renamed model is planned for next year.

  BYD explained the dual mode Qin can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) in just 5.9 seconds and has a top speed of 185 kilometer per hour (115 mph) with a claimed overall fuel consumption of up to 1.6 L/100km (147 U.S. mpg). The Qin can reportedly be driven in pure electric mode for up to 70 kilometers (44 miles). For long distance journeys the car uses a 1.5 liter gasoline engine.

  The company said when the first 100 Qin cars were put on sale on line in China, BYD set a record for new car sales anywhere. All 100 cars were snapped up in just two seconds – thought by BYD to be a record in the car industry.

  Per BYD, about 95,000 people had visited the BYD e-shopping mall, 6,000 actually registered and 23,405 were online when the sale began. An incredible 4,155 of them rushed to purchase the new model from BYD.

  The new car is said to share the technology pioneered and fully proven in the original BYD F3DM model, of which many tens of thousands have been sold, per BYD. As a PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) the Qin can be recharged at any normal household socket. When power is low or there is an on-demand need for ultimate acceleration the HEV mode is activated; this can be programmed either automatically or manually.

  BYD added the Qin generates electric recharging power during deceleration – either by means of engine braking or via the foot brake – typically contributing 2.5 to 3 kilowatt-hour for every 100 kilometers (62 miles) covered.

  The Qin offers four driver-selectable driving functions – EV+ECO, EV+SPORT, HEV+ECO and HEV+SPORT modes.

  All models in the Qin family are said to feature a 12.1-inch TFT instrument panel, smart key system and BYD’s unique remote driving facility, which allows the car to be maneuvered remotely at very low speed from the outside of the vehicle where permissible. We are curious to see if this feature will make it on the U.S.-bound model.

  BYD also said standard safety features include Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Electric Park Brake, ISO-FIX mounting points for child safety seats, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Control Deceleration Parking and 12 air bags.
