According to the company spokesperson, seeing the huge potential of India’s EV market, BYD is responding to the Indian government’s call to promote the local market and make India a global hub for EVs. BYD is confident that their new products will set a benchmark in India’s electric van segment.

At this early stage, the company is going to focus on creating a more efficient, more reliable B2B and electric public transportation sector, said Ketsu Zhang, executive director of BYD India. Zhang further commented that gradually BYD will look at increasing investment and manufacturing electric vans locally, based on the Indian market demand and government policies.

Proprietory battery technology for both vehicles
The T3 MPV and T3 minivan models adopt BYD’s proprietary battery technology, whose safety, reliability and lifecycle are proven by the company’s 11-year track record of EV operation as well as its global EV footprint, reported Auto Car.

According to BYD, the vehicles offer the best configuration and features available in the market, including keyless entry, push-button start, a music system with Bluetooth connectivity, reverse parking camera and sensors, and well-designed space for cargo storage or passengers. The vehicles are equipped with automatic transmission, which makes them among the most easily operable vehicles.

In addition, BYD is now actively seeking local Indian partners for the electric van product series.
