On November 23, BYD announced an increase in the official guide prices of Dynasty and Ocean series models, as well as Denza-branded models, ranging from 2,000 yuan to 6,000 yuan ($840), effective January 1, 2023.
BYD said this is because China's NEV purchase subsidies will expire on December 31, while the prices of key raw materials, including batteries, have risen sharply since the second half of the year.
