BYD announces further European expansion

BYD

BYD has announced the next phase of its expansion plans in Europe, including bringing three new models to the continent.

As per reporting by InsideEV, the Chinese manufacturer is looking to expand after a successful pilot rollout in Norway.

The plan is to roll out sales in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden in the next few weeks.

Vehicle deliveries in those markets would start in Q4 of 2022.

In addition to mainland Europe, BYD also confirmed they would start to sell vehicles in Israel.

Much like its rollout in Norway, BYD is partnering with local dealers who will handle the delivery and servicing of the vehicles.

BYD partnered with RSA in Norway, which has been a success for BYD.

The newly announced partners are:

  • Denmark- Nic. Christiansen Group
  • Germany- Hedin Mobility Group
  • The Netherlands- Louwman
  • Sweden- Hedin Mobility Group
  • Israel- Shlomo Motors

The company is bringing the following models to Europe and Israel:

  • Atto 3, a c-segment crossover
  • Han- an e-segment sedan
  • Tang – 7-seater family SUV

The three models will be on display at the upcoming Paris Auto Show.

However, BYD did not confirm when demo models will arrive in the various countries.

These vehicles are exactly the same as the Chinese version in terms of specs.
