“Dealing with the industrial transformation and the ever-changing consumption trends in the future, BYD will continue to focus on scientific and technological innovation.

He also stated that building on the existing “four-in-one” security system that guarantees the safety of battery’s raw materials, battery cells, battery packs, and vehicles, BYD would introduce another pioneering technology to further improve the security system. “To reassure our customers about safety, we have made it a mission that we will carry to the end”, said Wang Chuanfu.

During the event, Wang Chuanfu announced that BYD would build a high-end brand targeting the luxury market, Yangwang, with disruptive technologies and products. Its upcoming model will launch in the first quarter of 2023, bringing users unprecedented high performance.

In addition, in 2023, BYD will release a new brand grounded in highly professional and personalized identities, to meet the diversified demand of consumers. The brand will harness the co-creation with users and warmly welcome all the franchised dealerships to join BYD for its promotion.

In the future, BYD Auto will form a powerful brand matrix including BYD (Dynasty & Ocean), Denza, Yangwang, and another new brand that specializes in professional and personalized identities, covering family cars and luxury cars. With popularized and personalized design, BYD will constantly provide high-quality products that address customers' ever-rising expectations.

Furthermore, BYD will adhere to its global strategy by further developing the global market and promoting the passenger vehicle industry globally. Currently, BYD has extended its new energy vehicle footprint to over 400 cities across 70 countries and regions on 6 continents.

The roll-off of the 3 millionth NEV is not only an important milestone in BYD's history but also the vital landmark of witnessing the acceleration of global green mobility.
