Building Your Dreams

I have been blogging for the past months wishing to have one new car of our own. I’m considering this new in the market which is the BYD Electric Cars. Building Your Dreams or BYD, is China’s biggest battery maker. It all started with the F6DM plug-in hybrid sedan, followed by the smaller and less expensive F3DM plug-in hybrid compact car. Don’t you know that BYD has introduced its E6 electric car at the Beijing International Auto Show? It takes the shape of a crossover, or MPV, and will be built on the F6's platform.

When it comes to specifications E6 is a 5 seater with an acceleration of 0 to 100 kph of around 10 seconds. Top speed should be top speed of 160 kph (100 mph), and the battery pack, which is located under the rear passenger seats, will be based on BYD's own lithium-ion iron phosphate technology. Range per charge is expected to be 300 km (186 miles).

I guess the most impressive of all is "BYD projected the battery had a life of 2,000 cycles, for a lifetime range of about 600,000 km (373,000 miles)". Isn’t it great? It does not only build YOUR dreams but OUR dreams as well.

All auto companies should be thinking of green energy and becoming less dependent on fossil fuels.
