After opening their dealership in Delhi, BYD India has inaugurated a new dealership in Mumbai.
BYD India has opened its first passenger vehicle showroom in Mumbai, following the opening of its showroom in Delhi. This is BYD’s fifth showroom, which will be managed by Landmark BYD. Landmark also manages other BYD dealerships. The 2,000-square-foot showroom features trained technicians, service equipment, EV charging stations, a customer lounge, a display floor, and service bays.
Mr. Sanjay Thakker, Promoter and Executive Chairman of Landmark, and Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of BYD India’s Electric Passenger Vehicle Business, inaugurated the new showroom in the presence of senior BYD India and Landmark BYD officials.
Mumbai is a key market for BYD India, and the city is seeing a shift toward electric vehicles, with a trend among buyers preferring EVs rising in the territory, according to Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of BYD India’s Electric Passenger Vehicle Business.
BYD is also working to provide localised and green products for the local market, as the government aims for 30% EV penetration in the PV segment by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2070.
BYD currently only offers the e6, an electric MPV, in its lineup. It is brought to India as a CKD, which results in a slightly higher price. The BYD e6 costs 29.15 lakh (ex-showroom) and comes in two variants. There are two types: GL and GLX.
The electric motor mounted on the front axle is powered by a 71.7 kWh lithium-ion phosphate battery pack. It has a maximum power output of 95 hp and a peak torque of 180 Nm. The e6 has a top speed of 130 kmph.
