BYD India, the subsidiary of new energy vehicle maker BYD (Build Your Dreams), backed by Warren Buffett, on Tuesday announced the expansion of its dealer network as part of its drive to strengthen its presence in the country. BYD India said it has opened concessions at eight key locations across the country, which would then be expanded to other markets in the coming years.
The concessions would be in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Mumbai, New Delhi and Vijayawada. The dealers would provide customers with a holistic experience and offer sales and service for the company’s e6, the premium pure electric minivan, in the B2B segment.
“We have focused on strengthening our presence in the country and expanding our dealer network will allow us to bring our all-new e6, the pure premium electric minivan, closer to our B2B customers”, BYD India Pvt Ltd., sales manager (Electric Touring Vehicle) said Shrirang Joshi.
“Our dealers, while providing targeted sales advice in accordance with business requirements, will also ensure that customers can experience our products that deliver maximum value to their business and a lower total cost of ownership,” said Joshi said.
“We are seeing an emerging demand for the premium eMPV segment with a diverse customer base and are confident that the premium eMPV can meet all of their needs to deliver a better experience,” added Joshi.
Earlier this month, BYD India launched the electric MPV e6 equipped with Bosch’s latest intelligent brake control system with quick response and linear, smooth braking feel. The new model also comes with a speed-sensing automatic locking and rear view camera with distance scale line.
The e6 minivan would be available in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Ahmedabad, Kochi and Chennai at an ex-showroom price of Rs 29.60 lakh including a 7 kW charger and Rs 29.15 lakh for the b2b market, the statement added. .
