After going on sale on May 16, the BYD Denza D9 MPV gathered 30,000 pre-orders in just two months, according to the automaker.
The EV version of BYD's e-platform 3.0 and the hybrid DM-i platform serve as the foundation for the D9. It is 5250mm long, 1960mm broad, 1920mm tall, and has a 3110mm wheelbase.
In the new EHS170 electric hybrid system and a 3-in-1 rear-drive hybrid assembly, a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine is paired with an electric motor in the hybrid versions. With 190km of pure electric range, up to 80kW DC rapid charging, and fuel usage as low as 6.2 liters per 100 km, hybrid models have a driving range of between 945 and 1040 km.
With a maximum charging power of 166kW, the electric-only version's driving range exceeds 600km.
Seven screens are installed inside, three at the front, two on the seatbacks, and two in the armrests of the second row. Additionally, the second row passengers have access to the refrigerator located in the space in front of them. Android phone screen mirroring is another feature offered on the TS Link intelligent interactive cockpit. 8MP cameras are built into the two-seat rear screens, which can be utilized for conference calls or by parents to keep an eye on their children.
The interior is heavily decorated with nappa leather and wood. Lots of natural light enters the space thanks to a sizable panoramic sunroof.
The 10-way-adjustable second-row captain seats have three 50kW wireless rapid charges, footrests, heating, ventilation, and 10-point massage features.
There are eight hybrid and two fully electric alternatives, with the hybrids costing between 49,300 and 65,600 USD and the BEVs between 57,500 and 67,800 USD. Only 99 of the ultra-luxury four-seat model will be made, and it will cost 88,400 USD.
Three new Denzas will debut this year, the first of which is the D9. Based on the moniker DENZA, the Denza series will introduce five further items in the future under the names D, E, N, Z, and A.
