First 100 all-electric Chinese BYD cars headed to Norway

Chinese all-electric carmaker BYD has shipped its first 100 deliveries of BYD Tang 600 SUV to Norway, media Clean Technica writes in a recently published article.

BYD celebrated the send-off with a special ceremony that was attended by several VIPs from the Chinese government department, industry associations, and BYD suppliers, plus more than 400 media guests who came to mark the occasion.

BYD is fairly unknown outside China but the carmaker has already built over 1 million new energy cars. Chairman and President of BYD, Wang Chuanfu explains that BYD shoulders the responsibility and mission of upward development for China’s new energy vehicle brands.

“From zero to one million vehicles, this is BYD’s response to the call for global auto industry transformation. It also sets a benchmark in the journey of the new energy vehicle industry in China starting from nothing, alongside the greater national journey for a country dominated by traditional automobiles to one that is a leader in the field of sustainability” he says.

BYD plans to deliver 1500 BYD Tangs to Norwegian customers before the end of 2021.
