published in

Officially revealed, the BYD Dolphin, which has been on the market for two years, will complete its 500000 model launch on September 22, with an average monthly sales of nearly 20000 units. It is indeed strong in the small car market.

It is understood that 500000 commemorative models of BYD Dolphin will be launched in 3 days. As a new model, the new car will have a more sporty design and an upgraded chassis.

From spy photos, the new car features a very eye-catching red body, with black smoked above the waistline, creating a visual effect of a convertible body. Based on the application information, the new car will also introduce a richer exterior and interior color scheme for consumers to choose from.

As for the interior, the new car will not make too many changes and will continue to use design styles such as a 5-inch LCD instrument panel and a 12.8-inch central control screen. There may be adjustments in details similar to the appearance.

In terms of size, the new car is similar to the current model, with a length, width, and height of 4125/1770/1570mm respectively, and a wheelbase of 2700mm. In terms of power, the new car is consistent with the current model, with a maximum power of 177Ps and a peak torque of 290N · m. It provides two different pure electric endurance versions, 401km and 420km, under CLTC working conditions, and supports fast charging functio.

The most noteworthy thing is that from the rear of the car, the new car is expected to replace the torsion beam non independent suspension of the current model with an independent suspension. If that’s the case, the comfort and driving quality of the new car will be improved, and the same level of Jianghuai Yttrium 3 and the Euler Good Cat family, as well as the benchmark product Honda Fit, will undoubtedly greatly enhance the competitive advantage of the new BYD Dolphin due to cost constraints!


Before BYD Dolphin, the small car market was not particularly lively, and even veteran products such as the Fit had low monthly sales. The main reason for this was that small cars had limited space, so it was better to buy compact cars of the same price range. However, unlike pure electric cars dominated by BYD Dolphins, consumers of this type of car have transformed from micro cars such as the Wuling Hongguang MINIEV. Their purpose is to commute daily, and the cost of using pure electric cars is lower, making them the preferred choice for more consumers.

This year, the modified models launched by BYD have all undergone official price reductions. Even though 500000 commemorative models of BYD Dolphin have undergone chassis upgrades, the purchase threshold for the products may not be much higher, and even the starting price may be around 110000 yuan.
