BYD D1 EV Sales Data & Trends

The BYD D1 is an electric car specifically designed for use as a taxi and for ride hailing. It was co-developed with DiDi Chuxing, the Chinese rival to Uber and Grab. All-electric range according to the NEDC cycle is 418 km (260 miles) from a roughly 50kWh battery, with an energy consumption of 12.8 kWh/100 km. The electric motor has a peak system output of 100 kW and 180 Nm of torque, giving the D1 a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph). Dimensions are 4,390/1,850/1,650m.

DiDi and BYD are planning to put 100,000 units of the D1 in use in 2021, and this could expand to a fleet of 1 million units on the streets by the end of 2025. If that seems like a lot, take a look at some of the stats for the ride hailing platform:

  • over 550 million registered passengers and 31 million registered drivers
  • about 1 million plug-in vehicles in use (represents 1/5 of the daily mileage), the world’s largest shared EV network
  • about 60 million trips a day, which translates to over 10 billion trips per year
