The model is available in four versions, with the lowest priced version having a range of 301 kilometers. It has a power battery capacity of 30.7 kWh and is priced at RMB 93,800 after subsidies.

The two versions in the middle of the price range both have a range of 405 km, a power battery capacity of 44.9 kWh and a post-subsidy price of RMB 103,800 and RMB 108,800 respectively.

The highest-priced version has a range of 401 km and a power battery capacity of 44.9kWh, with a post-subsidy price of RMB 121,800.

The Dolphin is also the first model in BYD's Ocean lineup, using the ocean aesthetic design concept for the first time, and the first model to have BYD's new logo.

The e-platform 3.0 was unveiled by BYD at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 19 to create the next generation of high-performance smart EVs. BYD says its key modules are smaller, lighter, more capable and consume less energy.

The model has a wheelbase of 2,700mm and an axle length ratio of 66.3 percent, giving occupants the space of a B-class car, BYD previously said.
