3000km long test, BYD Qin PLUS DM-i really didn’t disappoint?

Since the release of BYD DM-i super hybrid technology, there have been many fans and many controversies, especially about its fuel consumption performance.

Now, it has been more than two months since I started this Qin PLUS (parameter picture) DM-i, and the car has driven nearly 3000 km. It is time to talk about the truest performance of this car.

What is the real fuel consumption?

After the opening of Qin PLUS DM-i, the biggest change is the change of driving mentality.

In the past, when driving a fuel car, as long as you put your foot on the accelerator pedal, all kinds of fuel-saving tips will ring in your ear. What to do is to keep the economic speed, don’t accelerate too fast, and don’t turn the air conditioning temperature too low. Then, when you see the fuel consumption drop from double digits to single digits bit by bit, a sense of pride will always arise.

However, since I started Qin PLUS DM-i, after a short adaptation period, I quickly put these fuel-saving tricks behind me, because DM-i is really fuel-efficient.

At first, I found that when I went out to shoot, I left it on, and when I took a break, I left the air conditioner on, and the fuel consumption would not change, because most of the time, the power of the car battery could completely support the power consumption of the air conditioner; Later, because charging was more troublesome, I often kept running without electricity for a long time, but the fuel consumption of this Qin PLUS DM-i was still "stable as a dog".

Gradually, all my "bad" habits, such as starting at the first red light when driving and never looking at the fuel consumption when stepping on the gas pedal, have come back, but every time, Qin PLUS DM-i will tell me with its quiet and smooth acceleration: Drive with confidence and boldness.

So far, including commuting, shooting and long-distance business trip, this Qin PLUS DM-i has been driving on urban roads and high-speed roads for about 80% and 20%, and it has only been charged for three times during this period. In the case of long-term power loss, its apparent fuel consumption has remained at the level of 3.6L/100km.

The last charge was after the manuscript was finished.

Before charging, I forgot to shoot the meter, which showed fuel consumption, and I shot before leaving when I was fully charged.

Don’t panic at high speed due to power loss.

For this hybrid system of Qin PLUS DM-i, many people are very concerned about whether it will be like Toyota’s hybrid system, although the urban fuel consumption is low, but the high-speed fuel consumption is high.

The final measured performance should make many DM-i followers breathe a sigh of relief.

Last time I was on a business trip to Hefei, I did a test by the way. In the state of power loss, I traveled at a high speed, 307km round trip, and the speed kept between 110 and 120 km/h. Finally, the apparent fuel consumption was about 4.5L/100km, which was excellent.

Of course, because the air conditioner was turned on all the way, and when the engine returned to the starting point, it charged 5% more electricity for the battery, so the battery life was 159km longer than the actual mileage, which may indicate that the fuel consumption of this 1.5L engine will be slightly higher because it needs to be driven and powered at the same time, but the overall fuel consumption will remain within an acceptable range.

Clear the fuel consumption data before departure.

End of trip

At the same time, Qin PLUS DM-i will not be weak in high-speed acceleration when it is fed, because the battery of the vehicle will always maintain a certain percentage of power, thus providing power support during rapid acceleration.

The charging speed is fairly fast.

Of course, for many users who plan to buy DM-i, they hope to achieve the ultimate green travel, so as long as conditions permit, they may try to keep their vehicles in a fully charged state.

For this problem, I also measured it through this Qin plus DM-I.

My machine is a top-of-the-line version with a battery life of 120km, which supports fast charging. When charging at Weilai’s fast charging station, it takes 58 minutes to charge from 20% to 99%, of which it takes about 35 minutes to charge from 30% to 80%.

This charging speed is certainly not fast compared with most pure trams, but because the battery capacity is small, the overall charging time is completely acceptable, and it can be charged for more than half in the case of a short rest in the service area.

The car system is powerful enough

In addition to the super hybrid DM-i, this Qin PLUSDM-i impressed me deeply with its intelligent performance.

Speaking of it, I have also tested many models. Looking back, the functionality of BYD DiLink intelligent network connection system should be the most perfect.

For the simplest example, when speech recognition is started, if the air volume of Qin PLUS DM-i is relatively large, it will automatically and intelligently adjust the air volume to prevent the recognition rate from being affected by poor pickup effect. Not only that, this voice recognition system can not only control common operations such as air conditioning and music, but also control most functions and apps integrated on the central control screen.

This is very practical.

With the increasing popularity of "one screen to control everything" in the car system, many complicated car functions and settings will be buried deep in the layers of menus, which is very inconvenient to find, especially when looking for and adjusting during driving, which will also affect driving safety. DiLink system can control the deep functions such as adjusting the SOC value of the car and adjusting the brake feedback strength by voice, which can be done in one sentence, which is convenient, fast and safe.

It has a sense of advanced driving.

If the hybrid system and intelligence show the technological side of Qin PLUS DM-i as a new energy star model, then its driving experience shows me BYD’s skills in traditional car-making technology.

As a 100,000-class family car, Qin PLUS DM-i adopts a common torsion beam rear suspension of the same level, and its hardware specification is not high. However, after the adjustment of the chassis master, the chassis is solid and compact, and the compression rebound of the suspension is crisp and neat, filtering out most vibrations while retaining a certain sense of road. Even if it encounters a relatively large pothole, the vibration transmitted from the rear suspension to the car will not be very stiff.

I have always heard that Hans, the chief chassis adjustment expert of BYD, is from Mercedes-Benz. Needless to say, the driving quality of Qin PLUS DM-i is really a bit of Mercedes-Benz.

Total knot

It is not difficult to find that Qin PLUS DM-i still has excellent performance in power and fuel consumption under the condition of power loss, regardless of urban roads or high-speed road conditions. At the same time, Qin PLUS DM-i also inherited BYD’s consistently high-intelligence and solid chassis. It is no wonder that a car is hard to find nowadays.

Through this long test, I also want to say to those riders who are waiting for the order to be delivered: DM-i, it’s really worth waiting for!

Has Volvo been abandoned because the new product has been delayed?

In 2017, Volvo brought S90 and XC60 products, which have been the main sales force of Volvo for five years. Although it is often necessary to attract users with huge discounts, in terms of sales volume, relying on these two main models, Volvo’s performance in the past five years can be described as brilliant. However, as the product strength became more and more old, Volvo’s sales began to decline, and it was time for Volvo to innovate.

Looking forward to the stars and the moon, Volvo finally released a flagship pure electric SUV—— some time ago. However, in its report, it was impressively written: "It is planned to be produced and sold in the United States in 2023 and localized in China in 2024." In other words, Volvo, whose current main force has already appeared tired, has released new electric products, but it will take two years to meet consumers. Some insiders believe that the pace of Volvo is still so slow in the new energy era, and it is afraid of being abandoned by the market.

At present, if we only look at the sales data of Volvo, there is something gratifying, because in this market where the epidemic situation is repeated and traditional luxury cars and fuel vehicles are eroded by new energy sources as a whole, compared with those friends who are prone to decline by more than ten or twenty points, the cumulative sales of Volvo in the first 11 months of this year has declined by 7.4%.

But Volvo’s real pain lies not in its sales volume, but in its price and brand image: as early as two or three years ago, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus were still increasing their prices, but XC60 was already in a state of "fracture price", with an average discount of 60,000 to 70,000 yuan, and S90 in some areas could even be discounted by 100,000 yuan. On the surface, Volvo’s guide price can still keep up with the first-line luxury, but in fact its price system has almost slipped to the point of competing with joint ventures for the market.

Judging from the financial report, as early as 2019, Volvo’s operating profit in the first half of the year fell by 30%; In the second half of the year, the growth rate of 0.8% was barely maintained through layoffs and other means. In the first half of this year, Volvo’s revenue alone fell by 14.1%; The net income has been completely negative, with a negative growth of SEK 1.171 billion, which dropped by 134.5%. During this period, although Volvo has set foot in PHEV, the actual performance of T8 power is not inferior to that of BBA, but Volvo’s popularity in the hybrid world is not as high as its "Raytheon Hammer" headlights. At this point, Volvo is in urgent need of an innovation.

Fortunately, in the era of electrification, BBA and Lexus, the top four traditional luxury markets, have not come up with strong gestures and products, and consumers no longer give face to their brands and popularity. This can be said to be an excellent opportunity for other so-called "second-line luxury" to break through.

Volvo’s attitude of transforming into electrification is also quite firm: first, it transferred the main shares of Aurobay to Geely, and at the same time announced that it would stop production of pure fuel vehicles in 2025, which announced that it officially withdrew from the research and development of internal combustion engines and focused on electrification. However, the flagship electric technology exhibited by EX90, as well as the latest design, technology and concept, cannot help worrying about Volvo’s future.

First of all, this car was built on the SPA2 platform. Although this is an upgraded platform of SPA, SPA is an oil-electricity sharing platform that has never exploded and has never had a well-known black technology. Even the initiator of Volvo’s big price reduction came from this platform. The upgraded SPA2 is also not surprising: the maximum battery life of the EX90 is only 600 kilometers, and the minimum is only 467 kilometers (competing products can generally be 50-100 kilometers higher); The 8155 chip (which is the mainstream now, and will certainly be compared in two years) used for car engines, and the driving assistance computing power is 250TOPS (now many domestic flagships have a computing power of over 1,000, and most high-end models are in the range of 407Ps, 770N·m, 503Ps and 910N·m), but this is also compared with other traditional luxury brands.

In addition to the book parameters, the face value of EX90 also gives people a feeling of "XC90 pure electric version" (of course, this is indeed shared by oil and electricity platforms). Not only is the appearance lacking freshness, but the simple interior is also difficult to remind people of the word luxury. In addition to these most important information, EX90 is left with some "flowers": for example, its seat is made of environmentally friendly materials made of PET plastic bottles and resin; For example, the car will be equipped with sensors to detect whether children or pets are left behind; It can even charge in reverse, and use its cruising range of up to 600 kilometers to "feed back" the power grid or other vehicles.

As for the product strength of EX90, to be honest, even if it goes on the market at the end of 2022 and sets a price similar to that of XC90 (starting at 500,000), compared with its competitors, it is in a state where there are basically no advantages but many shortcomings. Compared with the new cars produced in recent years, the disadvantage of EX90 is even greater.

To give a few simple examples, the 11.4 million version of Aouita can have a battery life of 680 kilometers, and the entry version has a horsepower of 578Ps; Tucki G9 not only reached 700+, but also gave 508TOPS computing power; And those extended-range players who have broken thousands of battery life are even more annoying. In addition, technologies such as in-car life detection and reverse charging have already been seen in the domestic camp. The strength of EX90, which is average in book and not new in technology, is dangerous even in the 400,000-level market. But EX90 not only has a high probability that the price will be higher than XC90, but also will not be made in China until two years later … Such a performance certainly makes people uninterested.

More importantly, as a flagship, EX90 not only has low expectations, but also makes people’s thoughts on Volvo’s new products drop to freezing point. Is the future Volvo electric car the appearance of this current model after changing from oil to electricity, with a simple vertical screen interior? Compared with the extreme krypton that has blossomed in the high-end market, is Volvo’s future performance and battery life just like this? For the increasingly important intelligent travel, is Volvo such a mentality of running behind others? If so, in the new energy era, let alone Volvo’s luxury status, it will lack characteristics and competitiveness even if it is downgraded to an ordinary brand.

It must be said that Volvo, which is slow in electrification and weak in strength, not only faces being abandoned by the market, but also seems to be at arm’s length with Geely Group. Two years ago, the two companies announced that they would really merge into a group company, but the result after that was not only that the merger failed, but also that their cooperation in the power field came to an end. During this period, not only did Krypton successfully rush into the mid-to-high-end electric vehicle market of 300,000-400,000 grades, but also the geometric new energy, which is the main entry-level market, became the enemy of Ai ‘an. Geely even used the vast structure of SEA to help smart jump from the 100,000-grade fuel market to the 200,000-grade pure electric vehicle market, and the monthly sales volume of 1,000+was also higher than before.

On the other hand, Volvo is determined to realize electrification as soon as possible, but its real strength is still in the stage of plug-in+oil-for-electricity exchange. No matter whether SPA2 compares with the vast architecture of SEA or EX90 competes with Krypton 001, Geely can’t pretend to be a "teacher" when it comes to electrification, but it needs to ask this "senior" some difficult problems about the China market. The reason why the merger of the two companies broke down is probably because Volvo, whose car business was only $1.8 billion at the beginning, has an IPO valuation of nearly $30 billion after ten years of growth, which makes it have the idea of going solo, and perhaps makes it offer a price that even Geely, a "diamond VIP" in the acquisition industry, can’t bear in the merger negotiation.

In fact, Volvo needs Geely more now than it did 12 years ago. Not only because of the huge capital investment required by electrification technology, but also because of Geely’s achievements and strength in this field. For example, in the embarrassing period when Volvo’s sales and profits are both declining, Geely’s vast SEA architecture can help it tide over the difficulties.

However, these two brands in the same group began to "play their own games" in the field of electrification, which needs to concentrate on doing big things: they are extremely separated and independent; Volvo has never been able to use the vast structure of SEA. After 12 years, the couple finally began to sleep in separate rooms. Judging from the situation, Volvo’s soaring valuation is only temporary, and Geely, which has already taken off geometrically, has grasped the future. If we really want to part ways, Volvo may be the one abandoned by superior resources.

Summary:Among many luxury brands, Volvo never shows its edge, and rarely shows its ambition to surpass anyone. From the cost performance of products to the main concepts of safety and environmental protection, it even has many unique places. But after these years, Volvo’s main ideas have not been further recognized by domestic consumers. The slow pace of updating has led to a brand that cannot catch up with the high-end market at the price level and must be discounted in the main market. Faced with this situation, Volvo’s determination to cross the rubicon and "fully and quickly" electrify is worthy of recognition, but its achievements are obviously difficult to reverse the current decline. What’s more, the localization time of EX90 has been set in 2024, and it and Geely have begun to "drift away" in technology … So, Volvo may once again usher in a cold winter.

Chery tiggo 8PLUS kunpeng edition will be on the market soon, which is more expensive but stronger.

The Tiggo 8 series is undoubtedly the most important model in Chery’s product matrix, which can basically contribute more than 10,000 vehicles to the brand every month. Under Chery’s big single product strategy, the current Tiggo 8 series has formed a high and low camp of Tiggo 8PLUS+ Tiggo 8, covering the price range of 80,000-160,000. Chery has been continuously tapping its market potential for this hot-selling product. Not long ago, it launched the Tiggo 8 Kunpeng version and added 2.0T power. The Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng version will also be launched tonight.

The modeling design of the Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng Edition is consistent with the original 1.5T and 1.6T series, but it is different from the Tiggo 8. The interior of the polygonal grille on the front of the car is chrome-plated in star lattice, and two groups of L-shaped light sources are used in the narrow headlights on both sides, which is more recognizable after lighting, and the whole front face is relatively more refined than the original design.

The side is not big, the shape is stable and atmospheric, and the two-color wheel hub highlights the movement. The rear part doesn’t use penetrating taillights like the Tiggo 8, but the black and white decoration inside is also quite individual, and a large number of horizontal lines also outline a strong level of big mouth. It is worth mentioning that the car uses a bilateral four-way exhaust hole design, which indicates good performance.

The interior uses the popular digital cockpit style. The central control panel and the instrument panel form a double screen design. There is also a touch control panel in front of the bar. The three screens create a strong scientific and technological atmosphere, and a small number of physical buttons are set in the car, which is convenient for quick operation.

In the configuration part, the Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng version will come standard with front and rear airbags, panoramic sunroof, induction electric trunk, dual 12.3-inch screen, 360-degree panoramic image, voice recognition system, navigation, car networking, OTA upgrade and other functions. In addition to the heroic version, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, road traffic sign recognition, full-speed adaptive cruise, active braking and built-in driving recorder will also be equipped.

The dimensions, length, width and height of the new car are 4722/1860/1745mm and the wheelbase is 2710mm, which is quite spacious for a five-seat car. The trunk volume can reach 889L in normal state, and it is 1930L in the back row.

The Kunpeng version uses a 2.0TGDI turbocharged engine with a maximum horsepower of 254Ps and a peak torque of 390N·m, which has appeared on many Chery models. It is reported that the car can achieve a zero-speed acceleration of 7.3S, and the vehicle will also be equipped with a new generation of electronically controlled intelligent four-wheel drive system, with various driving modes such as economy, sports, snow, mud and off-road, which can adapt to more different road conditions.

The Kunpeng version will be more expensive than the cash price, and the current pre-sale price is 1419-169900 yuan, but the richer configuration and stronger power performance are undoubtedly very worthwhile. At present, the Tiggo 8 series has become the sales force of the explosive family in the market, and the arrival of the Kunpeng version has further improved the product layout, which is believed to contribute to the sales growth.

Trass is expected to take over as British Prime Minister, and the party survey is far ahead of his opponent Sunak.

  The election of the leader of the British ruling Conservative Party will announce the voting results on September 5; According to the latest survey in party member, the current Foreign Minister Trass is 22 percentage points ahead of former Finance Minister Sunak and is expected to replace Johnson as Prime Minister.

  According to Lianhe Zaobao, the survey released by Opinium Research13 on the 13th showed that among 450 Conservative Party party member who had decided to vote, Trass was far ahead with 61% support rate, while Sunak’s support rate was 39%.

  The above survey was conducted between August 8 and 12. There are three main reasons why party member supports Trass: she doesn’t like Sunak, thinks she is more honest and credible, and she remains loyal to Johnson.

  If the respondents who did not indicate their intention to vote were included, the total number of survey samples of Opinium Research reached 570. Less than one-third of them, or 29%, said they had already voted; Another 47% said they had decided who to vote for. Only 19% said they might still change their mind.

Ask civil servants: how to "buy" housing?

        "Weibinyuan Community" in Xianyang City, Shaanxi Province is sold exclusively to civil servants at a low price of 2,800 yuan per square meter, while the surrounding house prices are generally around 3,100 yuan per square meter; This move attracted public controversy. The public thinks that this is a "exclusive" house to take care of civil servants, while the government explains that it is a "group purchase" house to solve the housing problem of civil servants.
      The government should have served the people, but when both the people and civil servants have housing difficulties, and the people are obviously more difficult, civil servants "live in the world first." If this is really as simple as "group buying", wouldn’t the housing problem of the people be solved with a "group buying"? "Group buying" still inspires us. For the government, there are always more ways than problems, depending on whether people are treated as civil servants.

The first entry-level BYD Han EV Champion Car Purchase Manual

In the past year, BYD has undoubtedly become the top stream of the new energy market. In the new wave of price reduction, although BYD did not participate in the price reduction, the newly launched champion version lowered the entry threshold of the whole vehicle in disguise at a lower price range, which also attracted the attention of many consumers. The BYD Han EV Champion Edition, which was recently launched, has launched five models with configuration versions, with the price range of 209.8-299.8 million yuan. Compared with the old version, the price of the Champion Edition has been lowered, and a new model with a battery life of 506 kilometers has been added. At the same time, the configuration has also been upgraded. Next, let’s take a look, which version of the new Han EV Champion Edition is more worth buying?

506km predecessor distinguished type

Guide price: 209,800 yuan

First of all, the entry-level version of the 506km predecessor distinguished model, compared with the standard battery life version of 21 models, the battery capacity is reduced from 64.8 kWh to 60.48 kWh, and the battery life is 506 km from the NEDC of the old model to 506 km from the CLTC of today. You know, CLTC is more virtual than NEDC in battery life data. The power of the motor has been reduced from the old 163kW to the new 150kW, but the suspension system has been upgraded and the FSD damping system has been added.

In terms of configuration, such functions as L2 intelligent assisted driving, DiLink 4.0(5G) intelligent network connection system, panoramic sunroof, hidden door handle, keyless entry/start, battery preheating, external discharge, 12.3-inch LCD instrument, 15.6-inch central control panel, LED headlights, adaptive far and near light, ambient light, induction wiper and automatic air conditioner. Compared with the 21 standard endurance versions, the configuration has more functions such as electric trunk, ambient light, heat pump air conditioner, DiLink car and 5G network. Generally speaking, after the price reduction of 10,000 yuan, the configuration performance of the 506km predecessor distinguished model is still relatively cost-effective.

605km predecessor distinguished type

Guide price: 229,800 yuan

The next 605km predecessor distinguished model is 20,000 yuan higher in price. First, the battery life is increased from 506km to 605km, and the motor power is upgraded from 150kW to 168kW. In addition to the upgrade of power life, in the configuration, there are more functions such as parallel line assistance, door opening warning, rear collision warning, reversing car side warning, etc., and the audio system is upgraded to a 12-speaker Dana audio.

715km predecessor honor type

Guide price: 259,800 yuan

The price of the 715km predecessor distinguished model is 30,000 yuan higher than that of the 605km predecessor distinguished model, and the power and endurance are also further upgraded. The endurance of CLTC is increased from 605km to 715km, and the motor power is upgraded from 168kW to 180kW. In the configuration, there are more functions such as HUD head-up display, co-pilot ventilation and heating function, and main driver seat memory. Generally speaking, the extra 30,000 yuan is mainly for upgrading the endurance configuration.

715km precursor flagship type

Guide price: 279,800 yuan

The next flagship model has increased the price by 20,000 yuan compared with the distinguished model. The configuration has more functions such as fatigue driving reminder, automatic parking, automatic lane change assistance, steering wheel heating, automatic anti-glare rearview mirror, etc. At the same time, the steering wheel and seats are upgraded to leather materials. This version mainly upgrades the comfort function and configuration. If the budget is sufficient and the function is concerned, you can choose this version.

610km four-wheel drive flagship type

Guide price: 299,800 yuan

The biggest change in this version lies in the adjustment of the power system, which is upgraded from a single-motor front drive to a front-rear dual-motor four-wheel drive. The comprehensive motor power is increased from 180kW to 380kW, and the 0-100km/h acceleration time is increased from 7.9s to 3.9s s. In addition, although the battery power has not changed, the cruising range is reduced from 715km to 610km due to the energy consumption problem of the four-wheel drive. In the configuration, there are many functions, such as steering wheel memory, sports seat, two-row seat electric adjustment, two-row seat heating/ventilation, two-row seat backrest adjustment, rear multimedia, car fragrance, Brembo brake, DiSus-C intelligent electronic control active suspension and so on. This version is still very attractive to consumers who like passionate driving.

Conclusion:Judging from the five configuration models launched by the Champion Edition, in fact, the entry-level version is already full in configuration, which is very suitable for some pragmatic consumer groups. If there is a high requirement for battery life, then the 715km predecessor distinguished model can fully meet the demand. If there is a higher pursuit for driving control, then the four-wheel drive flagship model may be a good choice.

For the travel market, the starting price is 179,800 yuan, and the new version of Qin PLUS EV is coming.

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.

Byd Han DM-i: equipped with 1.5T plug-in system, or 176,800, is a prelude to hot sales.

BYD made its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show.
get away
) -i and
After the -i model, some friends are very much looking forward to it.
-i, this is not in the latest new car declaration information of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, but in the Chinese DM-I..So what’s the point of Han DM-i, and what’s the starting price? Xiao bian believes that: referring to the existing DM-I model price, Han DM-i or 176,800.Below, let’s take a look at the specific analysis.

Tips: 1. The price is analyzed and predicted based on the existing data, and the final price is subject to the official; 2. There are many articles. If time is limited, it is recommended to read the summary at the end of the article directly.

(a) size:The length, width and height of Han DM-i are 4960 x1910 x1495mm and the wheelbase is 2920mm, which is different from that of Han DM and Han DM.
Keep consistent, positioning belongs to medium and large cars.

(2) Power:Han DM-i will be equipped with the current one.
The 1.5T hybrid system on -i, according to the data of two models of Han DM-i in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, shows that the maximum power of 1.5T engine is 102kw and the maximum torque is 231N.m, and the maximum power of the motor is 145kw and the maximum torque is 316N.m (refer to the data of Tang DM-i for torque).It should be noted that the 145kw motor version should be two entry-level models, belonging to the power configuration of Tang DM-i entry-level models.
With the configuration of two high-profile models, the later Han DM-i may also have a 160kw motor version with a medium-high profile model.

(1) Premise: 1.5T(102kw)+145kw power start.At least we know that the starting power of Han DM-i is composed of 1.5T(102kw)+145kw motor, so it is relatively easy to analyze its starting price.

(2) Refer to the existing price distribution of BYD DM-i cars (all tables are DM-i models):

(1) Price distribution of models equipped with 145kw motor:From the perspective of price distribution, 145kw motor matching Han and Tang models should be entry-level models. At the same time as the corresponding model
(compact SUV) and Qin PLUS (compact), the price difference between the two cars with the same power configuration is 20,000-30,000 yuan.Considering that the positioning of Han (medium and large cars) is higher than that of Tang (medium SUV), the price of Han DM-i is likely to be similar to that of Tang DM-I.

(3) Analysis of the DM-i entry-level model of Tang Dynasty

By comparison, it can be found that the only 145kw motor version configuration of Tang DM-i is similar to that of the 160kw low-profile version, with a price difference of 10,000 yuan. The same comparison with Qin PLUS shows that the top configuration of Qin Plus’s 132 kW motor is similar to that of the 145kw low-profile version, with a difference of 10,000 yuan.Therefore, if Tang DM-i also has four models, its starting price should be around 179,800 yuan. Han DM-i is likely to have two low-priced versions of 145kw motors, so its starting price may be around 180,000 yuan.

(D) Comparison of the prices of the same-power vehicles in Han and Tang Dynasties

A: 2.0 TDM version comparison: Han DM is two four-wheel drive models (both 2.0T+ single motor versions), and the guide price is 21.98-23.98 million yuan. Tang DM is a four-wheel drive model with three models, and the guide price is 23.68-286,800 yuan (the minimum is 2.0T+ single motor). The same DM system, Tang DM starts at a higher price.If you look at the 2.0T+ single motor, the price of Tang DM version is the top price of Han DM, which is very similar to the current Tang DM-i with only one 145kw version, while Han may have two 145kw versions.It means that the second lowest allocation price of Han DM-i may be around 189,800 yuan, and the lowest allocation is about 10,000 yuan (17.About 980,000 yuan).

B: EV version comparison: As can be seen from the table,Under the condition that the number of motors and driving forms are the same,
The starting price is still higher than that of Han EV.
This may also indicate that the price of Han DM-i 145kw version and Bitang DM-I 145kw version is similar or even lower.

(5) The starting price difference between DM-i and DM models.

According to our previous analysis data:The starting price of DM models is generally about 45 thousand yuan higher than that of DM-i models.Therefore, the starting price of Han DM-i may be 21.98-4.5 = 174,800 yuan, which is also in line with our basic analysis and forecast interval above.

The above analysis summary is summarized as follows:

(1) Song PLUS (compact SUV) and Qin PLUS (compact car) of the same level, the price difference between the two cars with the same power configuration is 20,000-30,000 yuan.Han (medium and large cars) is positioned higher than Tang (medium SUV), so the price of Han DM-i is probably similar to that of Tang DM-I.

(2) If Tang DM-i also has four models, its starting price should be around 179,800 yuan. butHan DM-i is likely to have two low-priced versions of 145kw motors, so its starting price may be around 180,000 yuan.

(3) According to the 2.0T+ single motor, the price of Tang DM version is the top price of Han DM, which is very similar to the current 145kw version of Tang DM-i, and there may be two 145kw versions of Han DM-i, which means that the second lowest price of Han DM-I may be around 189,800 yuan, and the minimum price is about 10,000 yuan (about 179,800 yuan).

(4) In the case of the same number of motors and driving forms, the starting price of Tang EV is still higher than that of Han EV top models. This may also indicate that the top price of Han DM-i 145kw version is similar to that of Tang DM-I 145kw version (18.89), or even lower.

(5) The starting price of DM models is generally about 45,000 yuan higher than that of DM-i models, so the starting price of DM-i in Han may be 21.98-4.5 = 174,800 yuan, which is also in line with our basic analysis and forecast interval above.

To sum up, we think that the starting price of Han DM-i may be 176,800 yuan (deviation 5K).Of course, this is just a routine analysis based on the existing data. Now BYD’s production capacity has been insufficient. In order to maintain sufficient production capacity to cope with orders, and Han itself belongs to BYD’s flagship car,It is hard to say whether the final price of Han DM-i will be lowered below 200,000 yuan, so we can only wait.. Then, if the starting price of Han DM-i is around 176,800, would you choose it? Welcome to leave a message.

  Driving without a plan has become a new industry trend, and all major first-line automobile brands in China are involved in this field. Driving without a map, as the name implies, does not rely on high-precision map data, and it can be promoted in different places more quickly, which is one of its great advantages. The pure vision scheme is to get rid of sensors such as lidar, and only use the camera to identify obstacles around the vehicle, which provides reference for vehicle control decision-making for the intelligent driving system. The latest intelligent driving system of Tesla, which we are familiar with, adopts the pure vision scheme.
