It has a pretty design and is expected to be affordable, but the BYD Destroyer 05’s hybrid powertrain is a bit underpowered.
Within the framework of the ongoing Guangzhou Motor Show 2021, Chinese electric car brand BYD has brought a completely new model called Destroyer 05. This is a C-sized sedan and will have a price range. around 120,000 – 150,000 yuan, although the manufacturer has not disclosed the price and specific market launch time.
In terms of appearance, the Destroyer 05 stands out with a completely new design language, different from the design style of BYD’s existing Dynasty and e models. Specifically, the new model has a large polygonal front grille design, comes with the new BYD LOGO, and large vertical air intakes on the sides. All contribute to making the car sporty, dynamic and leave a good first impression.
As for the rear, everything seems simpler than the front, with a long bar-shaped taillight cluster with the words “Build Your Dream” (abbreviated to “BYD”) at the top, and the trunk lid. relatively small. Of course, the most eye-catching feature of the car is the “Destroyer 05” logo on the bottom right, which also shows that this is the final identity of this model.
In terms of equipment, according to previously announced information, the new car will be offered with a variety of grilles, front radar, sunroof, various wheel designs, side window decorations , camera system and more.
As for the body dimensions, the length, width and height of BYD Destroyer 05 are 4,780 mm, 1,837 mm, 1,495 mm respectively, while the wheelbase is 2,718 mm. In terms of power, the new car will be equipped with a 1.5-liter DM-i plug-in hybrid powertrain, with a maximum capacity of 110 horsepower, equivalent to the BYD Qin Plus DM-i model. This number seems weak, but because it is a plug-in hybrid system, it promises to bring better fuel economy than traditional petrol / diesel cars.
