In fact, BYD is meant to mean : Build Your Dreams...
I would rather say it means : Bring Your Dollars...

It seems they make good cars, but there is a lack of creativity in what they make... They just need some originality !

Toyota and BYD sign agreement for joint development of BEVs and onboard batteries. Apparently these vehicles will be branded as Toyota:

https://www.autocarpro.in/news-international/byd--toyota-to-jointly-develop-electric-sedans--suvs-and-and-batteries-43586

I am somewhat intrigued by the term "low-floor SUV" in the press release (like low-floor buses?) although I suspect it refers to either a flat floor (skateboard-type) design or the lowest possible placement of batteries to attain a very low CoG.

Just two days ago, Toyota and battery maker CATL too entered into a partnership agreement:

This is historic.
Toyota had been a long-time holdout for Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles, as the replacement for the ICE.
But the unfolding of the current auto industry revolution in China, pressured it to adjust to the times..., or face a fate of becoming irrelevant in the coming era of ICVs.
It's probably safe to say however, that its promotion of FCVs will not end anytime soon.
