After recently launching the BYD e6 MPV in the Indian market, the company has today announced that the first batch of the vehicles is delivered to the buyers. The first batch of the BYD e6 all-electric MPV comprised 30 units, which were delivered across 6 cities, namely Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, and Hyderabad. The e6 MPV is sold exclusively to B2B consumers, and the brand has established a dealer network across 8 cities in the country.
The BYD e6 EV is designed with the MPV-essential traits. The boot space is a massive 580 litres to gulp luggage of all occupants. The e6 comes with Bosch’s IPB brake control system and can regenerate energy from speeds of just 2 kmph. The electric MPV is priced at Rs. 29.60 lakh with a 7kW charger.
