BYD (HKG: 1211, OTCMKTS: BYDDY) continues to warm up for the Qin L, revealing the first official images, as the new sedan is expected to go on sale at next week's Beijing auto show.

The new energy vehicle (NEV) maker took to Weibo today to share 6 images of the Qin L, showing the model from different angles.

The Qin L will set a new trend for mid-size sedans, BYD said on Weibo.

The model is a hybrid sedan with length, width and height of 4,830 mm, 1,900 mm and 1,495 mm, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2,790 mm, according to a regulatory filing in February.

It is powered by an engine with a displacement of 1.5 L and a maximum power of 70 kW. The model has an electric motor with a maximum power of 120 kW.

The Qin L weighs 1,660 kilograms and supports a top speed of 180 kilometers per hour.

The car has two range variants with battery capacities of 10.08 kWh and 15.874 kWh, and battery ranges of 60 km and 90 km, respectively, according to a previous filing.

The Qin L will be unveiled at the Beijing auto show and is expected to start at RMB 129,800 ($17,930), and will likely be equipped with BYD's 5th generation DM-i hybrid technology, a report in local automotive media Yiche said today.

The 2024 Beijing auto show will be held from April 25-May 4, with media days from April 25-26 and public days from April 27-May 4.

Previous rumors have suggested that the Qin L will be one of the first models to feature BYD's next-generation hybrid system, DM 5.0, with fuel consumption of just around 2.9 L per 100 km on NEDC standard, and a combined range of 2,000 km.

On March 27, BYD chairman and president Wang Chuanfu said in an investor communication that the company will launch its fifth-generation DM hybrid technology in May.

On April 15, BYD shared three posters on Weibo showing some of the Qin L's exterior, its first preview of the model.

BYD sold 302,459 NEVs in March, up 46.06 percent year-on-year and up 147.29 percent from February, according to data it released on April 1.

Of these, the Qin family sold 40,569 vehicles in March, up 150.6 percent from February, with cumulative sales exceeding 1.41 million units.
