The BYD Tang SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market, and it is coming with a bang. Best news first: the total combined output of the plug-in hybrid-electric power train is 505hp and 720nm, much more than announced earlier. The output makes the BYD Tang one of the most powerful SUV’s and the most powerful hybrid SUV in the world.

Price is aggressive too. Initially, BYD will sell only two limited-edition models: the Tang Limited, seen above, a dare-to-be-first edition limited to only 98 cars. It comes with red alloys, a dressed up interior and special badges. Price is set at 300.000 yuan or 48.256 USD.

Tang Ultimate Edition has a more powerful version of the 2.0 turbo than ordinary Tang. The engine developes 250 hp (up from 205 hp) and the output of each electric motor is 150 hp (the same as in normal version). Total output of the Tang Ultimate is thus 555hp.
There are also many visible differences between two models. At the front Ultimate Edition has more aggressive front bumper and at the rear new bumper with four exhaust pipes and two air vents in the center.
The SUV is limited to 200 cars and the estimated price is around 600.000 RMB.

They should have chosen an English name...Tang is slang in English for something else...
Maybe if it was sold in UK or USA, it could have got other name.

I'd like to add that, despite shameless copying Lexus' design, this model of BYD looks quite cool. The front looks nice, besides, in the color shown in last galery, it just is awesome! :thumb:
