BYD Green Dream - Electric Car World

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article by Robinner

He has the flexibility to adopt a “semi-automatic pay rise”, made in the battery market dominance. Since then, he was duty-bound to battle auto industry, done in full swing. However, he was not satisfied , but also ventured into new energy sources. He is Wang, chairman of BYD. The company is the largest supplier of lithium-ion battery and is considered the world leader in new energy vehicles manufacturer.

Wind and water

15 years ago, Wang battery technology experts in the field began to get involved as the battery industry, with Japanese companies producing automated production line compared to the standard battery, BYD is just a small company just starting out, there is no strong financial support, you want to the battery is not easy to do. Prior to this, this threshold has been prohibitive for many companies.

However, Wang has taken a unique “human + fixture = robot” model, the flexibility to take a “semi-automatic adding artificial” growth line. This independent research and product development path, but also for the early start BYD significant cost savings and to secure a lot of valuable time.

In 1997, the business only two years sales of BYD Ni-Cd batteries, which amounts to 150 million, moved up to fourth in the world. Nickel-cadmium batteries in the field of a foothold, the Wang followed seize a second chance, began the development of the battery market with core technology products NiMH batteries and lithium batteries. Benefit from quality, cost and efficiency advantages, BYD in 2000 and 2002, Motorola and Nokia has become the first lithium-ion battery supplier in China.

If only the footsteps of Wang to stay in the battery industry, he was talking about new energy Kingdom only castle in the air, it will not be “Warren” Buffett their companies on him.

This is a bold move with Wang closely related. Dominant in the throne firmly secured after the global battery industry, Wang began a new adventure to get into the automotive industry.

The reason bent into the automotive industry, Wang interpretation is not unexpected: “BYD was in nickel batteries, lithium batteries, has been ranked first in the world, in the battery industry to be very difficult to achieve further breakthroughs; and it is in China’s auto market rapid development, huge market demand, development of electric vehicles is to solve the problem of resource constraints and environmental pollution, a good program. ”

But then the repairer failures have been, and no one would dare believe that a business can be better to do car batteries, Wang-made car was facing many challenges.

Speak louder than words. Wang’s choice for BYD Auto sales growth every year more than 100%, as the car industry, “Shenzhen speed.” August 31, 2009, BYD released mid-year performance: F3 sold 120,000, an increase of 78%, if coupled with F3R, domestic single car sales ranked first.

Throw away the gearbox gallop

“The future does not need transmission car!” Wang was stunned. In his eyes, car sooner or later the world of electric cars, electric cars are no gearbox. And to achieve this goal, Wang and did not let the outside world so long.

In 2008, BYD, the world’s first production hybrid vehicle F3DM officially listed. The investment in R & D personnel and more than 500 one billion yuan out of the hybrid electric vehicle research and development can be like cell phones, charging outlet in the home, breaking the electric vehicle charging station to be charged in the professional bottleneck, and power alone driver, the maximum speed of 150 km, full of oil and electricity reached after the maximum mileage of 500 km.

As the world’s first dual-mode electric vehicle, using a self-developed iron BYD BYD battery technology F3DM, broke through the home charging and charging station charging energy of two complementary approaches of technical problems, but also represents the current development of electric vehicles the highest level.

This has important significance is that BYD electric vehicle technology from the fundamental subversion of the traditional powertrain fuel vehicles, but also to make Chinese manufacturers dominated the car market with the giants on the same starting line.

“BYD listed F3DM to become the world’s new energy vehicles, one of the leading market,” Asia Pacific automotive research JDPower Meisong Lin, general manager of China research, once commented.

BYD advantages in the new energy and even affect the urban development in Shenzhen. When he was party secretary of Shenzhen, BYD Liu Pu in the investigation and study, after driving BYD F3DM had a smile as this “Shenzhen-made” new energy vehicles start with the “ad”: “to accelerate fast, low noise, very smooth and at an affordable price. “and BYD to meet new energy vehicles, energy storage power station and the long-term low-cost solar power development strategy, tailored to the Shenzhen Municipal Government said that its system to support a set of policy measures and docking.

In addition to domestic implementation, Wang also plans to let his pride - “Green Core” to the world. Wang says that BYD plans in the domestic market F3DM dual-mode hybrid electric vehicles and pure electric vehicles in 2011, when e6 put to the European market. “For the Chinese cars, the most important thing is the first successful entry into the European market. BYD on the use of new energy vehicles as a stepping stone to open the European market confidence.” Wang confidence.

And this toshiba pa3820u-1brs battery, toshiba pa3821u-1brs battery attitude can not do without the support of the data. A set of internal data from BYD, e6 once fully charged can travel 300 km, power 75 kW, the maximum speed of 140 km, the price is about 30 million yuan (12 million in Shenzhen will receive subsidies), power consumption per hundred kilometers 21.5 degrees. In contrast, dual-mode technology to master two other companies - General Motors and Toyota are selling electric cars, a charge can only travel 25 kilometers.

Look to “future village”

This year, BYD, and Daimler signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly develop electric vehicles in China. The two sides plan to set up a joint-venture technology center in China, using the best BYD battery and drive technology, Daimler’s security and structure technology, jointly developed an electric car for the Chinese market. Will undoubtedly accelerate the BYD new energy to the world the pace car.

In the new field of energy, BYD made for the benefit of mankind “three green dream”, in addition to electric cars, as well as energy storage power plants, and solar power. This practice of Wang’s commitment. Wang said, “BYD is not only to do ‘first’ business, but also responsible business should do dell studio xps 1645 battery, dell studio xps 1647 battery.” BYD concern not only in the sense of responsibility and actively participate in disaster relief to save crisis, donate resources to teach science and social stability, support cultural, sports and other public welfare undertakings of social responsibility, but also manifested in BYD through a unique low-carbon technologies to solve problems caused by oil pollution and economic problems of the global environment to contribute to the benefit of mankind.

After the introduction of electric vehicles, Wang has begun to reach extended to solar energy, BYD is working to develop energy storage power station. Wang once said: “The electric car is actually a small energy storage power station, is kilowatt, but also can expand to MW.” BYD is now in R & D is such a large energy storage power station.

Meanwhile, Wang also wants to use their own solar and wind battery storage. BYD factory in Shenzhen, there are two small villas, villa all the electricity used in all from the yard of a few solar panels and a few windmills, villa wind and energy storage system will have stored in the battery for normal use. Allegedly, this small courtyard named Wang as “the next village”, perhaps this is his dream of the future society should look like.

From electric cars, solar , Wang and BYD “green dream” people unconsciously influence the world.

Hyundai Enters the Hybrid Race

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Just in time for the latest round of high gasoline prices (although they are dropping somewhat at the moment),

the gasoline-electric hybrid version of the redesigned Hyundai Sonata sedan has arrived.

The car is EPA rated at 35 mpg city/40 highway, which isn’t quite as high as the fuel economy of the best-selling hybrid, the Toyota Prius, officially 51 city/48 highway.

But also unlike the Prius, the Sonata hybrid has an almost identical gasoline-only version, which arrived last spring as an early 2011 model. This is a regular-looking car, not a vehicle that screams “hybrid” as it rolls down the road.

Prices of the Sonata and Prius hybrids are similar when configured the same. There is just one trim level for the Sonata, and the base price is $25,795 (plus $750 freight). Options can run the price into the low $30,000s, but those extras aren’t necessary to have a really nice hybrid sedan with ample room for five passengers and their luggage.

Generation Y Auto buyers tracked brands and models bought in 2009 and 2010

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

A new study of Gen Y drivers’ preferences looks like more bad news for the Detroit automakers.

Auto pricing site TrueCar.com tracked both the brands and individual models bought in 2009 and 2010 by Generation Y shoppers (ages 18 to 27). The results should strike fear into the hearts of U.S. auto executives: Not a single brand from a domestic automaker made the Top 10 list.

Scion, a brand set up by Toyota Motor specifically aimed at young buyers, was No. 1. (See its Scion tC above right.) Mitsubishi, a name that barely registers with older shoppers, came in second. Some other brands among the top 10, such as Honda and Volkswagen, have a long record of youth appeal. But even the Korean corporate twins Hyundai and Kia, which have recorded surging sales in recent years, appear to have extended their appeal to young buyers as well as older ones.

Though Ford, Chrysler and the General Motors brands have enjoyed big sales gains this year, the TrueCar list portends some…………..
