BYD Launches Destroyer 05 Plug-In Hybrid

On Thursday, Shenzhen-based automaker BYD officially launched five versions of the Destroyer 05 model, a sedan in its Ocean series, with a subsidized price between 119,800 to 155,800 yuan ($18,842-$24,505).

The Destroyer 05, as the first model in the firm’s Warship line, features a DM-i super hybrid power unit, which consists of core components such as a Snapdragon 1.5L engine with thermal efficiency of 43.04%, an EHS electric hybrid system and a DM-i power blade battery.

The EHS hybrid system is powered by ultra-high-speed dual motors with small volume and high power, a maximum motor efficiency of 97.5%, and BYD’s own IGBT4.0 electric control with a combined efficiency of 98.5%. The Destroyer 05 delivers a driving mode powered by electricity and supported by fuel.

The DM-i battery is a special power blade battery, which can more efficiently match the charging and discharging needs of the system while also guaranteeing safety. It ultimately achieves ultra-low fuel consumption of 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers and a comprehensive range of over 1,200 kilometers on full fuel and full charge.

In terms of its interior design, the Destroyer 05 carries a 12.8-inch self-adaptive rotary suspension pad, an 8.8-inch full LCD instrument panel and an operator console with compact knob shift buttons. Its DiLink intelligent network connection system supports intelligent voice interaction functions, a karaoke mode, and OTA remote upgrades of the entire vehicle.
