BYD’s new electric SUV comes to Brazil with the price of combustion rivals


BYD has just revealed images of its newest SUV compact entry. This is the Yuan Up which, as reported by Jornal do Carro, is part of the brand’s Ocean line. In other words, it follows the same proposal as Dolphin, with references to the ocean (as the name suggests). According to the Chinese press, the model is scheduled to debut in March in China. And soon after, it should reach other international markets. In fact, one of the big bets is Brazil, where it will target combustion successes, such as the Volkswagen T-Cross and Hyundai Creta.

In terms of design, BYD’s new compact SUV features some elements inspired by its bigger brother, the Song L. Thus, it features tapered LED headlights, which are connected by a black piece. The bumper, in turn, is robust and has a hint of BMW design. Overall, the model brings a more sober visual proposal, without major boldness in the lines. The interior, however, has not been revealed.


On the sides, it is possible to notice the body with straight lines, and a very high beltline, a trend in SUVs today. In addition, there are also handles built into the doors. At the rear, the bumper follows the design of the front. The LED flashlights have a design very similar to those of the Dolphin. In terms of measurements, the BYD Yuan-Up is 4.31 meters long, 1.83 meters wide, 1.67 meters high and has a wheelbase of 2.62 meters.

BYD compact SUV could come to Brazil

Under the hood, two configurations are expected. One with a 177 hp electric motor and the other with 95 hp. In terms of battery, the model probably has a Blade unit, exclusive to BYD. Thus, you can have options of 32 kWh or 45.1 kWh, with autonomy equivalent to 300 and 400 km in the CLT cycle.


Coming soon to the Chinese market, the BYD Yuan-Up is expected to cost 100,000 yuan. In other words, around R$69,000 in direct conversion and without taxes. For Brazil, however, the debut should take a little longer. Therefore, it would only be launched in mid-2025. In any case, the price is expected to be quite competitive. Therefore, it could debut with a price close to R$ 170 thousand. But, we will have to wait for more news.
