BYD + Daimler’s DENZA 400 EV Has “400 Kilometer” Range

The BYD Daimler New Technology Company joint venture has introduced a new electric vehicle to the Chinese market — the DENZA 400, a “Made in China, for China” offering possessing a “400 kilometer” range.

Der DENZA 400 in der Qualitätsprüfung. Daimler erweitert sein Produktportfolio im Bereich der emissionsfreien Mobilität mit der Einführung des DENZA 400. ; The DENZA 400 being quality checked. Daimler extends its portfolio of new energy vehicles with the introduction of the DENZA 400.; Der DENZA 400 bietet eine Reichweite von bis zu 400 km mit einer Batterieladung. ; The DENZA 400 offers an electric range of up to 400 km on a full charge.;

The stated range of 400 kilometers per full charge, of course, refers to the Chinese testing cycle, and I believe is considered to be a bit more lax than the US EPA’s testing cycle.

The new DENZA 400 all-electric (EV) model is reportedly being manufactured at the joint venture’s independent production line at the BYD base in Shenzhen. Production capacity can reportedly be increased easily in the future if need be.

“Our joint venture BDNT unites the best of Sino-German cooperation in new energy vehicles. Already offering safe, reliable and convenient electric vehicles from and for China, the DENZA 400 with upgraded range offers our Chinese customers a further improved driving experience,” stated Hubertus Troska, a Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Greater China. “We are confident about the future prospect of new energy vehicles in the country. Daimler will continue to invest in research and development of efficient and eco-friendly new energy vehicles, which represent a key pillar of our China growth strategy.”

The press release provides a few more details, stating that “the DENZA 400 features improved battery density achieved through an upgraded production process that increases the battery’s capacity from 47.5 kWh to 62 kWh while maintaining the original size. With an upgraded range of up to 400 km, most Chinese consumers, who generally drive 50 to 80 km per day, will only need to recharge their DENZA 400 once per week.”

The new offering builds on the work of the first-generation DENZA, launched back in 2014. The first-generation DENZA sold more than 3,000 units during its first year of availability in China.
