China's BYD Unveils Hybrid Powertrain Capable of 2,000km Drive

What are the implications of this? This is putting more Golf, more daylight between lagging legacy rivals going through this electric transition. Fundamentally, when you look at some like Toyota who has been big on hybrids or even some like Volkswagen, they've been very much struggling over the last couple of years of trying to grapple with where they go and pursue this electoral transition. And so for someone like BYD, who is a leading seller of electric and hybrid vehicles. Just come out with a new set of technology for its hybrid power trends. Basically, you could essentially drive from New York to Miami or even Brisbane to Melbourne on a single charge and with one full tank of fuel. So it's it's for them really setting gauntlet to these lagging electric legacy rivals on electric. And so it's quite fascinating to see just this pace of development and particularly for someone like BYD who's decided that. These this new technology will be in some of these cars coming out immediately and be priced under CN¥100,000 which is 13,800 U.S. dollars. And in your story as well, Danny, you're making the point that, yes, you said that this sort of range is a lot bigger than its rivals within China. But what, for instance, a Japanese automakers or Korean automakers thinking about this? Well, I think for Japanese automakers is particularly like Toyota even yesterday, they've come up with its own kind of pursuit of hybrids where they're banking on alternative fuels on top of gasoline to help it, you know, manage this turn transition to EVs and hybrids in future. So no, Toyota's making its own bets in particular on how it wants to pursue this future transition. And so it's taking a little bit of a different step, but they're very much in a in a kind of development phase and so. Have still got a long way to go even though they have existing hybrids but are not as as powerful as say like by DS. They will have a lot more to do in order to catch up.
