BYD India, a subsidiary of the Chinese electric carmaker BYD (Build Your Dreams), has introduced the new e6 – and all-electric MPV at the price tag of Rs 29.15 lakh.
For the time being, it is only available as a commercial vehicle, and for an additional Rs 45,000, BYD will include a 7kW charger. While there are plans to make the e6 available to private buyers in the future, no specific date has been announced yet by the company.
BYD E6 Electric Car Price in India
The BYD E6 electric car with a 7kW charger is priced at INR 29.6 Lakh ex-showroom, and without the charger, the MPV is priced at INR 29.15L.
BYD E6 Electric Car Battery
The BYD India e6 has a battery and an electric motor.
The BYD e6 is a five-seater electric MPV based on the company’s e-Platform. The MPV is powered by a 71.7kWh lithium iron phosphate battery that delivers 95 hp and 180 Nm to a single electric motor, allowing for a top speed of 130kph. It can also regenerate energy from other sources.
While the e6’s performance figures aren’t particularly impressive, especially given its low price, the MPV is designed for efficiency.
BYD claims that a single charge can provide up to 415km of combined WLTX tested range – not to be confused with the more rigorous WLTP test cycle. On the WLTC city cycle, this number rises to 520km per charge. The MPV also supports DC fast charging, which allows it to charge from 30% to 80% in 35 minutes.
E6 Electric Car Features
The e6 MPV has LED Daytime Running Lights, LED rear taillights, leather seats, 6-way adjustable driver and front passenger seats, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and a CN95 air filtration system as standard equipment.
While the official dimensions for the Indian model have yet to be revealed, they are expected to be similar to those of the e6 sold elsewhere.
The international e6 is 4.69m long, which puts it halfway between the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (4.39m) and the Kia Carnival (4.39m) (5.11m). The Company has confirmed that the e6 has a boot space of 580 liters.
BYD E6 Warranty and Availability
BYD India is eager to provide customers with a vehicle warranty of three years/1,25,000 km, a battery cell warranty of eight years/5,00,000 km, and a motor warranty of eight years/1,50,000 km for the e6.
To begin, the e6 MPV will be available in only eight cities: Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Ahmedabad, Kochi, and Chennai. The automaker is currently reinforcing its dealer network in these areas.
