    The BYD Qin (pronounced “Chin”) is a plug-in hybrid compact sedan developed by BYD Auto with an all-electric range of 70 kilometres (43 mi) and a hybrid electric powertrain that can extend the car''s total range to a distance similar to that of a conventional gasoline-powered vehicle. The BYD Qin concept car was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, and the car is named after China''s first empire, the Qin Dynasty. The Qin starts at 189,800 rmb (~US$31,000), before any applicable government subsidies and tax exemptions available for eco-friendly vehicles.

    The Qin is the successor of the BYD F3DM, the world''s first mass-produced plug-in hybrid automobile, launched in China in 2008. In April 2012, BYD announced that due to its low sales, the F3DM was to be replaced by the Qin. The BYD Qin is the plug-in hybrid version of the BYD Su Rui, launched in the Chinese market in August 2012.

    Deliveries in China began in mid December 2013. Retail sales of the BYD Qin began in Costa Rica in November 2013, and BYD plans to start sales in other countries in Central and South America in 2014. The BYD Qin ranked as the top selling plug-in electric car in China in 2014. Also, the Qin ranked seventh among the world''s top 10 best selling plug-in cars in 2014. Since its introduction, a total of 21,208 units have been sold by the end of March 2015.



    The Qin was designed with BYD Auto''s next-generation more efficient dual-mode electric powertrain. The BYD Qin uses a smaller 13 kWh lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4) instead of the 16 kWh battery used on the F3DM. The LiFePo4 battery has a high energy density and can withstand up to 4,000 charges while still retaining 80% performance, and uses no toxic heavy metals in its manufacture. Due to its improved design, the new battery is about 50% smaller and lighter than the one used on the F3DM. The reduced battery pack size will translate into reduced price, but at the expense of the all-electric range, which BYD estimates at 50 kilometres (31 mi) while the F3DM delivers an all-electric range of 97 kilometres (60 mi). BYD says the Qin will have a 7% better efficiency, power and energy-saving and in pure EV mode.

    In hybrid mode, the Qin uses two 110 kW electric motors and a 1.5 liter turbo-charged direct-injected engine, instead of the 1-liter 3-cylinder engine used in the F3DM, to output 223 kW of power and 440 Nm of torque. According to BYD Auto, the Qin has a top speed of 185 km/h (115 mph) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in less than 5.9 seconds, 3.3 seconds faster than the Chevrolet Volt. Thanks to its smaller battery and increased wheelbase, the Qin will have more interior space than the F3DM, and the styling has also been improved over BYD’s earlier models, most notably in the car’s interior. The Qin features two large TFT LCD displays on the dashboard, equipped with the BYD “i” intelligent cloud system platform incorporating features like telematics, cloud-computing and a full range of services 24 hours a day .

    Production and sales

    The BYD Qin ranked seventh in 2014 among the world''s top 10 best selling plug-in cars, and also was the top selling plug-in electric car in China in 2014.


    After missing the original market launch of August 2013, retail deliveries were rescheduled to begin in Shenzhen in November 2013, and then push back until December 2013. The carmaker was awaiting the roll out of local government subsidies for new energy vehicles. Deliveries began in December 2013 at a price starting at 189,800 rmb (US$31,000), before a 35,000 rmb (US$5,600) central government subsidy available for eco-friendly vehicles, in addition to existing local incentives. The high end trim is priced at 209,800 rmb (US$34,400) before incentives.

    A total of 142 units were sold in China in December 2013, and 14,747 units were sold during 2014. The Qin ranked as the top selling plug-in electric car in China in 2014, and continued leading PEV sales during the first quarter of 2015 with 6,319 units sold. Cumulative sales reached 21,208 units through March 2015.
