BYD Looks To Take On Tesla In Electric Car Market

In case you didn’t know, then BYD is challenging the market position of Tesla.

According to an article from CNBC, the BYD Yangwang U9’s top speed is 192.12 mph. Toss in the ability to accelerate from 0-to-60 mph in 2.36 seconds.

People might also want to know if this type of car compares to any already out on the market. If you look closely at its overall traits, then it might come close to Ferrari supercars. That company’s SF90 Stradale model can reach 100 kph in 2.5 seconds. Also, don’t take your eyes off of what’s happening at Porsche, either.

This BYD Yangwang U9 supercar will have the use of its e4 Platform, along with the BYD-developed DiSus-X Intelligent Body Control System, to power it up, BYD states. Meanwhile, the U9 will have a lithium-iron-phosphate battery in it. Upon review, these power units are popular with electric vehicle makers. Why? They are cheaper because cobalt, an expensive metal, isn’t used. China is the place to go for LFP production, too.

What is in this market for the future? One could say that it looks very bright. These supercars like the Yangwang U9 are making inroads for their company.
