In 2018, the BYD Tang model line was replenished with a model labeled DM, which translates as dual mode. The hybrid all-wheel drive SUV was unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in the spring. The homologation version can be recognized by a different front bumper (enlarged air intakes), as well as modified rear windows (emphasizing the dynamism of the body). The wheel arches can be fitted with 20 "or 22" wheels.
The 2018 BYD Tang DM has the following dimensions:
The highlight of the BYD Tang DM 2018 is its hybrid setup. The crossover is powered by a turbocharged two-liter engine and two electric motors, which are installed one at the front and rear axles. Thanks to this layout, the dynamics of the all-wheel drive Chinese crossover matches the characteristics of a modern sports car.
For example, the second generation Bentley Continental GT has the same dynamics. Both cars accelerate to "hundreds" in 4 and a half seconds. But the Chinese crossover has one advantage over the luxury Briton - it is capable of driving 80 kilometers without spending a single drop of gasoline.
Acceleration 0-100 km / h:
The interior of the model does not differ from the identical front-wheel drive crossover, which is powered only by internal combustion engines. The list of options includes the same equipment, for example: panoramic roof, dual-zone climate control, blind spot monitoring, etc. For a surcharge, the buyer can increase the range on one charge up to 100 kilometers (a more capacious battery is installed).
