On January 21, BYD said it will adjust the official guide prices of its Dynasty and Ocean series NEV models by RMB 1,000 ($158) to RMB 7,000.

This is due to a significant increase in raw material prices and the withdrawal of subsidies for NEV purchases, the company said. The price adjustment has been effective since February 1.
