BYD started offering discounts on two additional models in China, after they were previously available on two other models.

Moreover, both models are eligible for benefits including a 2-year zero-interest loan, up to two years of free on-board internet traffic, and a trade-in subsidy.

Customers who purchase the Yuan Plus at the time of trade-in will receive a RMB 1,000 subsidy, which is RMB 2,000 for the Dolphin.

Currently, the BYD Yuan Plus and Dolphin have official starting prices of RMB 139,800 and RMB 116,800 respectively and are among BYD's best-selling models.
