On top of the Han DM, BYD has added two additional models, Han DM-i and Han DM-p, with the former focusing on fuel economy and the latter having strong performance as its main feature.
The Han DM-i is available in four versions, three of which have a pure electric range of 121 kilometers and one of 242 kilometers, with a pre-sale price range of RMB 216,800 (34,080) - 292,800 after subsidies, according to BYD's announcement today.
Only one version of the Han DM-p is available, with an electric-only range of 202 kilometers and a pre-sale price of RMB 322,800.
These models have the same dimensions, measuring 4,950*1,910*1,495 mm in length, width and height, with a wheelbase of 2,920 mm.
They are powered by a 1.5Ti engine with a maximum power of 102 kW and a peak torque of 231 Nm.
The Han DM-i is equipped with a front-mounted single motor with a maximum power of 145 kW and a peak torque of 316 Nm, and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. The model has a fuel consumption of 4.2L per 100km on low charge and a combined range of 1,300km.
