The highly anticipated BYD Dolphin Dynamic has been launched in Australia with a price tag that makes it the most affordable, high-quality EV on the market.
EVDirect CEO, Luke Todd said, “We’re proud to introduce an EV of such high quality and safety that is now within reach for more Australians.
“With state government rebates as high as $6,000 in Queensland, this makes the Dolphin Dynamic as low as $33,890 plus on-road costs. In some instances, this positions it at a lower price point than similar petrol-powered vehicles, a circumstance that has been unprecedented until now.”
Expressions of interest for the new Dolphin began on 12 June and the response has been highly significant.
“We’ve received an exceptional number of expressions of interest for the BYD Dolphin. The vehicle went on sale at the official launch on 22 June at 8 pm, and we anticipate a substantial volume of pre-orders.
“Given BYD’s proven supply-chain capabilities, we eagerly look forward to delivering many thousands of Dolphins, with shipments scheduled to begin in Q4 2023,” said Todd.
Space, efficiency, safety, and connectivity define the Dolphin Dynamic. With taut exterior dimensions and a 2700-millimetre wheelbase, the Dolphin Dynamic comfortably seats five people and caters for their luggage with its convenient five-door hatchback layout.
A split-fold rear seat maximises versatility and practicality. Luggage space is 345 litres with the rear seat in place, and 1,310 litres with the rear seat folded flat.
Both exterior and interior styling are cutting edge, with the sharply defined exterior lines a highlight of BYD’s design language. Inside, there’s full connectivity including Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, sat-nav and wireless phone charging.
Functions are controlled by a 12.8-inch touchscreen that can also be electrically rotated to either landscape or portrait orientation depending on driver preference.
The BYD Dolphin also features a large panoramic moonroof, voice recognition and plenty of USB and charging ports throughout the cabin. Heated seats and the vehicle’s climate-control air-conditioning are supported by BYD’s advanced heat pump system which maximises thermal management ensuring maximum driving range in all weather conditions.
Safety is the highest priority for BYD when designing all vehicles including the Dolphin. Standard inclusions include seven airbags, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Driver fatigue Monitoring, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert and Braking, Adaptive Cruise-Control and Lane Keeping Assistance.
