Forget Volvo XC90 T8, because there is a new head of SUVs and hybrid plug-in comes directly from China: BYD Tang.
It boasts that it is the strongest in the world and has a consumption of only 2 l / 100 km.
Tang BYD’s most powerful plug-in hybrid SUV in the world and consumes 2 liters / 100 km.
BYD Tang is, according to official information, the most powerful plug-in hybrid SUV in the world. And, as you probably already realize, is produced by a Chinese company.
Specifically, the new SUV driven by Asian’s a hybrid powertrain that combines a gasoline engine that develops 205 hp and 320 Nm with two electric motors (with 150 hp and 200 Nm each).
We currently have no official figure of total power, but if you were to gather values above, we reach 505 hp and 720 Nm.
Of course, no way to calculate, but it’s clear that it’s more than the 400 horsepower of the new Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid T8.
However, the Chinese manufacturer boasts an average of only 2 l / 100 km. Sounds good, but not really no way to test this claim, given that Tang BYD will sell only to China began.
The two electric motors are powered by a lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) 18 kWh which can be charged from a household outlet of 220 V and provides a theoretical range of 80 km in 100% electric mode.
