BYD and its local distributor RSA have successfully launched the BYD Tang SUV in Oslo, Norway. A launch event was held in celebration of the first 100 BYD Tang SUVs to arrive in Norway, and to hand over the first vehicle to its owner.
BYD’s first consignment of passenger cars for Norway signals the start of the company’s ‘European dream’ at a strategically important time when sales of New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) begin to surge in key markets across Europe. BYD is committed to delivering 1,500 units to Norway before the end of 2021, with the arrival of the Tang SUV on European shores the first step in an exciting journey.
Globally, BYD is one of the first companies to produce one million electric passenger cars, and is now established as the world’s leading NEV manufacturer across multiple industries.
The pure-electric all-wheel-drive BYD Tang SUV is the embodiment of the company’s expertise, experience and vision.
The vehicle comes equipped with BYD’s 86.4kWh Blade Battery, which boasts unparalleled technology, safety and performance. BYD’s Blade Battery charges from 30% to 80% in an impressively fast 30 minutes using a DC power output of 110kW. This ‘game-changing’ ultra-safe Blade Battery signals a new era for the EV industry.
Top-line performance figures for the BYD Tang SUV include a class-leading range of 528km (WLTP City) and 400km (WLTP combined), and acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds. The BYD Tang SUV’s braking performance is equally impressive, with its Brembo front brakes and rear ventilated discs providing a braking distance of 36m from 100-0km/h.
Style-wise, BYD’s international design team, led by the renowned designer Wolfgang Egger, has blended European design flair with Eastern heritage to create a powerful, dynamic-looking SUV. The BYD Tang SUV represents a new design era for BYD, combining beauty, emotion and ‘inspiration in nature’.
On the inside, the BYD Tang SUV is as practical as it is stylish. With seven seats and cavernous 1,655L interior, the vehicle is equipped with a 12.8-inch rotatable touch screen, DIRAC Live function with 12 loudspeakers, 31-colour ambient lighting, premium ventilated leather seats with heating and position memory, and wireless phone charging capability.
The BYD Tang customers can enjoy an extended warranty of eight years / 160,000km on the high-voltage Blade Battery.
