With power outputs up to 380kW, the all-electric Song L will be available with either rear- or all-wheel drive
BYD has brought yet another electric model to market with its new Song L fastback electric SUV now on sale in China.
According to Car News China, BYD has announced presales for the electric SUV which could be available one day in Australia.
Taking clear styling influences from the likes of the Kia EV6 and even the Porsche Macan, the BYD Song L is set to have a starting price of around USD$34,100 (AU$53,000) and is available in both single- and dual-motor guises.
Car News China reports that the BYD Song L is built on the company’s e-Platform 3.0 and features CTB (cell-to-body) battery technology.
Chasing Cars has reached out to BYD Automotive to inquire about this new model, and whether the Song L could come to Australia in the near future. We will update this story if we receive word.
The BYD Song L electric SUV comes with the following features as standard:
BYD will sell the Song L in China with either a rear-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive layout.
The rear-wheel drive can be specced with the choice of either a 150kW or 230kW electric motor.
A dual-motor version is also available with a maximum combined output of 380kW, making the Song L as powerful as the upcoming Polestar 3 SUV, or more powerful than the current 375kW BMW X3 M Competition.
The choice of two BYD Blade battery packs will be offered, at either 71.8kWh or 87kWh in capacity.
Electric range varies from 550km to 662km, however these claims are likely to be NEDC figures.
