USA: We drive the first Chinese car expected in the U.S., the electric BYD e6

Reports of an imminent invasion of Chinese cars have proved exaggerated for more than a decade. Promised introductions have failed to materialize, and those from BYD, Geely, and others that we’ve seen displayed at auto shows looked unready for prime time. Now I’ve had a chance to actually drive one, the all-electric BYD e6, at the 26th Electric Vehicle Symposium taking place this week in Los Angeles. Truthfully, it made a better impression than we would have expected.

The e6 looks like a tall station wagon, and it features a 60-kWh lithium-ion battery with a claimed range of 180 miles. I couldn’t verify that on my brief outing. When I drove it, the dashboard display indicated it had a remaining range of 105 miles with 55-percent charge left in the battery.
