Launched in 2020, the revolutionary BYD Blade Battery provides new levels of safety, durability and performance.
The Blade Battery uses Lithium Iron-Phosphate as its cathode material, which offers a much higher level of safety than conventional lithium-ion batteries. LFP has inherently excellent thermal stability and significantly, is cobalt-free.
The Blade Battery has undergone the most stringent safety tests, surpassing the demands of the Nail Penetration Test, the most rigorous way to test the thermal runaway of batteries.
Efficiency and longer range are further benefits of the Blade Battery, providing more power density for optimum performance and efficiencies, including faster charging and longer driving range.
The High-tech e-Platform 3.0 comprises the world's first mass-produced highly integrated 8-in-1 electric powertrain
Safety, high efficiency, intelligence and aesthetics. BYD's 8-in-1 electric powertrain integrates the Vehicle Control Unit; the Battery Management System, the Power Distribution Unit; the Drive Motor; the Motor Controller; the Transmission; DC-DC and the On-Board Charger.
The ability to reduce energy transfer loss with a comprehensive efficiency of up to 89% and featuring the industry's first direct cooling and heating system for power batteries increasing the thermal efficiency by up to 20% in the winter, leveraging residual heat from surroundings, the powertrain, passenger compartment and even the batteries.
BYD stands for Build Your Dreams. Their name is based on their commitment to leveraging technological innovation to create a better life.
BYD was first established in China in 1995 and has since undergone 27 years of high-speed growth. Originally a battery manufacturer, they entered the automotive industry in 2003 and became a relentless advocate of sustainable development, which has allowed them to expand globally. Their latest venture will see them expand into the UK, where they will start selling cars in late 2022, early 2023.
As a pioneer of the battery industry, the Blade Battery was produced by BYD as an evolution of its previous battery innovations to provide enhanced safety, longer range and a longer lifespan of battery to EV users.
The BYD Blade battery was built specifically to give customers security of a battery with a long lifespan. It has a lifespan of over 740,000 miles after 3,000 charge/discharge cycles.
BYD’s exciting expansion into the UK brings a fresh set of New Energy Vehicles (NEV) into the market. BYD have confirmed they will be releasing three cars into the UK: the ATTO 3, a stylish looking SUV; the BYD HAN, a sleek and powerful saloon; and finally, the BYD TANG, a large seven-seater with space for all kinds of adventures.
BYD is one of the only automotive manufacturers that competes with the EV giant and long-term leader in the industry, Tesla. Tesla is arguably more well-known in the UK at the moment, but that could all change with BYD emerging into the UK. However, as with most car comparisons, it really is personal preference as to which cars meet your personal needs more.
