Default BYD T3, M3, e3 (Shang)

BYD Auto, an auto division of BYD Co. Ltd., has started testing a new model codenamed C6, and will unveil the minibus model, the first by the company, early next year, SinoCast said yesterday, citing sources.

After six months of internal testing in small quantities, BYD Auto, China's leading electric car maker, will start the mass production of the small bus model, which is predicted to hit the market in the first quarter of 2011, the sources said.

The model will mark BYD's entry into the minibus market. The automaker is now capable of making a mini vehicle with the same quality as the Wuling Rongguang, a high-grade mini vehicle model by SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile, said analysts.

However, the minibus sector in China is now confronted with a slight profit, and related companies are surviving only by achieving huge sales. The price will mean a lot for mini bus buyers, analysts added.

BYD Co., which is 10% owned by U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett, agreed in July to buy bus and coach maker Hunan Midea Coach for $8.8 million. BYD's first batch of electric buses may roll off the production line later this month.

The first phase of BYD's bus plant project kicked off in September in Changsha, capital city of central China's Hunan province. The C6 minibus model may be produced in this factory.

Do you have any pics? What is the bet it will be based on the ubiquitous Toyota Hiace?

Keep yer eye on BYD for all up and coming vehicles. They're destined for automotive...ummm...news. Of the world. And that's not a putdown. If I were to fancy myself a new all-electric car, why it would be one of BYD's e6's.

Hi,..
BYD are a smart company, they know where the growth areas are in the Chinese market and they know where the growth areas are in the European and American markets are, their CEO is not China’s richest man for no reason.

The sketches of the patent bureau are from the BYD C6, a new balant copy, this time the Nissan NV200. The BYD C3 is much smaller.
