A new BYD sedan is approaching the Brazilian market and it will be a flex hybrid, being known as King, since the name Qin should not be used here. In China, its name was Destroyer 05, being part of the Dynasty family.

Spotted by a follower of the channel @janacletos, the BYD King will arrive in the country to compete directly with the Toyota Corolla Hybrid, costing in the range between R$ 179,800 and R$ 199,800.

Using the same technology as the BYD Song Plus, the King will have a 1.5-liter aspirated engine with 110 horsepower and 13.8 kgfm, as well as a 172 horsepower electric motor, delivering a combined 197 horsepower and 33 kgfm, essentially focusing on autonomy.

With an 18 kWh Blade lithium battery, the BYD King will have a combined range of 1,200 km, 120 km in electric mode, in addition to providing an average consumption of 22 km/l and a quick 1-hour recharge using a 17 kW charger.

Measuring 4,765 m in length, 1,837 m in width, 1,495 m in height and 2,718 m in wheelbase, the BYD King recently received a visual update and will certainly be another product from the brand to be manufactured in Camaçari, Bahia.

Going from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds, one should not expect a really sporty performance if we consider the same plug-in hybrid package used in the Song Plus, which we have already shown here is focused only on economy (see its NA evaluation ).

Still, the BYD King will have features that the Corolla doesn’t even dream of, thus focusing on a really generous package, where we can count on the ADAS+ set, rotating screen, NFC, on-board internet, Wi-Fi, sports seats, panoramic sunroof, finishing in leather and fabric, 360-degree monitoring, native GPS, among others.

In full version, the BYD King should initially fight due to its plug-in hybrid package, but the Chinese brand should also sell a simpler version, without ADAS, sunroof and other features, for R$ 149,800, thus taking the Corolla GLi.
