BYD spicing up plug-in line-up with Tang hybrid, E9 electric sports car

BYD seems bent on using green technologies to inject performance into its line up. The Chinese automaker is already set to offer its Qin Hybrid (pictured) – pronounced Chin, it’s a 50-km (31-mile) plug-in version of its Su Rui model, said to be capable of sprinting to 100 km/h (62 miles per hour) in a brisk 5.9 seconds – to the public later this Fall. Now, however, it has revealed several future vehicle programs that vastly improve on the zippiness metric, while keeping fuel consumption to a minimum.

One, the Tang hybrid, will mate a direct injection 2.0-liter turbo engine to an electric motor to return a legitimately quick 4.9 second 0-to-100 km/h experience. Before it finds a place in this sedan, however, Chinese consumers are likely to see the same drivetrain powering the upcoming S7 SUV. There is, as yet, no word as to what type of fuel economy drivers might expect, or how much all-electric range the vehicles might return.
