e6 Introduction

The e6 is a long-range, pure-electric utility vehicle. It is a cross between a sedan and an SUV with superior interior space (over 88.3 cu-ft or 2.5 m^3). With over 800 operating as public eTaxis, the e6 fleets have an accumulated range of over 45 million miles (72M km as of May 1st, 2013). The nominal range of the BYD e6 on a single charge (in an eTaxi duty-cycle) is about 186 miles (300 km) and it operates two shifts for nearly 24 hours with one mid-day supplemental charge.

Power and Performance

The e6 will be equipped with a 75kW motor and the BYD-developed Fe battery, powering the e6 to a range of 186 miles on a single charge in urban conditions. This makes it one of the longest-range, pure EVs in the world. The projected top speed is 87mph. These characteristics make the e6 ideal for daily commutes, city driving and even long distance travel. In addition, during braking, deceleration and downhill coasting, the vehicle's kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and stored in battery packs through regenerative-braking functions, further improving energy utilization to increase the e6's range.

Definite Safety

Resistant to high temperatures, high pressures and severe impacts, BYD's internally developed Fe battery boasts excellent reliability and a 10-year warranty. The system can automatically detect leakage currents in the high voltage power supply system and damage to the battery housings. An emergency maintenance switch disconnects the high-voltage battery pack to ensure the safety of the driver and passengers in case of system failures or when the car needs to be repaired. The parking gear motor controller receives the lock/ unlock order sent by the driving motor and performs the relevant operations to ensure maximum safety while parking or starting.

Convenient Charging

Charging the e6 is convenient and fast. It only takes 40 minutes to fully charge the e6 using the 100kW fast charging cabinet; it takes 6 hours with a standard 10kW standard charging pole (like a residential garage over-charging scenario).

BYD develops charging facilities to meet various world standards.
