BYD Tang PHEV

Auto-sales-statistics-China-BYD_Tang-SUVSales figures for the BYD Tang in China.

The BYD Tang is a plug-in hybrid crossover, with a 2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors, powering all four wheels through a 6-speed Double Clutch Transmission. One of the electric motors is positioned on the rear axle, the other at the front. The Tang is a dual-mode hybrid, which means it can drive in pure-electric mode as well as in hybrid-electric mode. The petrol engine has an output of 205hp and 320Nm of torque, each electric motor has an output of 150hp and 250Nm of torque, which brings the total figures to an impressive 505hp and 820Nm. This launches the Tang from 0-100 km/h (62mph) in 4,9 seconds. Energy is stored in an 18 kWh high-capacity Lithium Iron Phosphate battery, which is located under the floor of the car. In EV mode, the Tang has a range of 80km (50 miles).

The BYD Tang has four driving modes:

  • Pure Electric: only the rear electric motor is used to power the rear wheels.
  • Max power: the petrol engine and the front electric motor power the front wheels and the rear electric motor powers the rear wheels.
  • Range Extender: both electric motors power their axle, and the petrol engine supports whenever necessary.
  • Hybrid: the petrol engine supports the front electric motor whenever necessary, the rear electric motor is not used.
