In recent days, BYD Qin (parameter picture) PLUS is undoubtedly the brightest star in the A-class sedan market. In 2022, the car successfully won the title of monthly sales champion, and after the champion version was launched this year, its sales data soared. Today, the monthly sales level is stable at around 40,000 units, and the outstanding sales data is simply envious of others.

Recently, the 2023 BYD Qin PLUS EV new model was officially launched, and the new car was launched in two configurations, with a price range of 179,800 ~ 209,900 yuan. It is reported that the new model belongs to the exclusive version launched for the network car market, and the whole vehicle is mainly adjusted for configuration and warranty policy. Let’s take a look at its performance.

appearance design

As a new model, BYD Qin PLUS EV Travel Edition has not changed in styling design. Specifically, the new car adopts Dragon Face 3.0 design language, the front face is designed with a closed front grille, and many sharp lines are added to the hood and front enclosure. Together with the front bumper, the temperament of the whole car is more sporty. The two sides are equipped with angular headlight groups, and the middle part is connected by a silver plaque, which enhances the integrity of the front face design. Its internal structure is inspired by the arrow feather, and the arrow-shaped light strips are arranged neatly, and the visual effect is quite exquisite after lighting.

In terms of body size, the specific length, width and height of the new models are 4765×1837×1515 mm and the wheelbase is 2718mm. The car’s side shape is relatively compact, the roof is designed with a sliding back, and the front and rear wheel eyebrows are slightly expanded and the raised waistline shows a certain sense of strength.

The rear of the car has a good layering. The taillight group adopts the popular penetrating design, with straight lines around it, and the visual effect is quite layered. At the same time, the lamp group is flattened and integrated with the profile, which has a natural feeling.

Interior design

The interior design of BYD Qin PLUS EV Travel Edition has not changed either. Among them, the center console of the car adopts a symmetrical layout, and the materials and workmanship are relatively in place. The areas that can be contacted frequently in daily life are basically wrapped in soft materials, and the details are decorated with elements such as piano paint decorative boards and wire drawing decorative boards, and the texture is quite outstanding. At the same time, the center console of the car is equipped with a rotatable 10.1-inch central control display screen, which has comprehensive functions, including vehicle settings, color adjustment of ambient lights, navigation, 360-degree panoramic images and other functions, and also supports the download and application of major apps.

The seats in the new car are uniformly wrapped in leather-like fabrics, and the main driver’s seat is electrically adjusted as standard in terms of functions. The front seats are in one-piece shape, with double color matching, moderate internal filler hardness, excellent cushion length and good comfort.

The two sides of the rear seat are slightly sunken, and the inclination angle between the seat cushion and the backrest is more suitable for Chinese people. The experiencer with a height of 1.75 meters comes to the back row, and the leg space can reach more than two fists, while the head space is four fingers, and the spatial performance is also outstanding.

power system

BYD Qin PLUS EV Travel Edition is equipped with a front-mounted single motor, which is divided into two versions at the same time. Its maximum output power is 100 kW and 150 kW respectively, and its peak torque is 180 Nm and 250 Nm respectively. In addition, the new car provides lithium iron phosphate batteries with two capacities of 57 kWh and 72 kWh, and the NEDC pure electric cruising range is 500km and 610km respectively.

Vehicle configuration and purchase suggestions

As a new model, BYD Qin PLUS EV Travel Edition maintains the internal and external styling design of the current model, and the whole vehicle is mainly adjusted in terms of configuration. At the same time, the new vehicle has changed its warranty policy according to the driving characteristics of operating vehicles, in which the warranty policy for power batteries has been adjusted from 8 years or 150,000 kilometers for non-operating vehicles to 6 years or 600,000 kilometers, and the warranty policy for whole vehicles has been adjusted from 6 years or 150,000 kilometers to 1 year or 100,000 kilometers. The new car has launched two configurations this time, with a price range of 179.8 ~ 209.9 thousand yuan. Let’s make a detailed comparative analysis to see which one is more cost-effective.

Che Shu concluded

Generally speaking, BYD Qin PLUS EV Travel Edition has no obvious change in styling design compared with the ordinary version. The whole vehicle is mainly adjusted in terms of configuration and warranty policy, which is more in line with the use requirements of the network car. In Uncle Che’s view, the travel version will not have much impact on our ordinary consumers, but the introduction of the travel version will help improve the sales level of the whole vehicle. From the aspect of sales, the cumulative sales data of this car reached nearly 120,000 units from January to April this year, and the monthly sales data in April and March remained at around 40,000 units, accounting for more than 10% of the compact car market. The performance is really quite scary. I believe that after opening up the B-end market, the sales level of Qin PLUS series will be significantly improved, and we will wait and see.
