BYD Qin sedan HV

The Qin from BYD Philippines is a dual-mode hybrid sport sedan that’s part of the “Green Mobility” strategic vision of BYD Global. The dual-mode system harnesses an advanced turbocharged engine and a powerful electromotor, either of which can operate independently, or be combined to deliver 300hp of blended power.

Advanced DM II powertrain
On the Qin's dual mode hybrid drive that unmasks the power of both the turbocharged engine and the electro-motor, the electric powerplant has been upgraded with 47% more power,  improving overall efficiency by 7%.

Sip just 1.6 liters / 100km
Attain phenomenal 62.5km/l mileage by using the Qin's full 70km EV range and its 18.75km/l turbocharged 1.5L engine in stages.

Or do 0-100km/h in 5.9s
Unleash 291hp of combined power in fully blended HEV sport mode to burn out from to 100km/h from a standstill in under six seconds.

Performance:   The Qin (ch-in) is a plug-in Dual Mode II hybrid that channels virtually all the power from both its turbocharged, direct injection engine and its high powered permanent magnet electromotor. And it channels these smoothly into a dual clutch automatic gearbox that eliminates the  power-loss issues that come with a traditional torque converter.  At full burn with both the engine and motor combining to deliver 291hp and 353lb-ft through its 6-speed double clutch transmission, the Qin accerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds!

Economy: At the same time, with those same performance features working together, but with a lighter foot on the gas pedal and by making the most of it's 70km EV range, the Qin offers astounding overall fuel economy of 62.5 km/l.  That's equivalent to just 65 cents for each kilometer travelled!

Emissions:  With an EV mode on which to zero out emissions, the Qin's overall carbon footprint can be small and closer to that of an electric vehicle rather than that of a conventional car.

Protection for all

Impact protection with ten airbags (front, front-seat mounted, rear-seat mounted, front knee, front and rear side curtains)  and 3-point seat belts for all five passengers.

Two-channel ABS with EBD

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) from Bosch maintains tire traction through hard braking, and while constantly monitoring weight changes caused by varying passenger and cargo loads.

Electric parking brake system

The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is designed to reduce drag and save weight, enhancing safety in emergency stop situations.
