BYD Launches Electric Supercar, Price IDR 3 Billion

BYD‘s sub-brand, YangWang, officially launched the electric-powered supercar, YangWang U9. The electric car that challenges Lamborghini and Ferrari is sold with one option for around IDR 3 billion.

Quoted by MOTORSPORTS, this fully electric supercar uses the e4 platform. The YangWang U9 is equipped with BYD’s Disus X suspension which allows the car to drive on three wheels, jumping to ‘dancing’. This car is driven by four electric motors with a total power of 1,287 horsepower and peak torque of 1,680 Nm.

U9, which according to BYD stands for Ultimate 9, uses AWD (all wheel drive). This electric car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.36 seconds. According to BYD, the drag race time record for a distance of 400 meters can reach 9.78 seconds. The electric motor is capable of rotating up to a speed of 21,000 rpm.

The top speed of the YangWang U9 reaches 309.19 km/hour. It was tested at the Shanghai International Circuit.

The U9 rear spoiler provides up to 280 kg of downforce. The YangWang U9 is equipped with 21 inch Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Interestingly, unlike other high-end cars, this car does not use a nickel cobalt manganese (NCM) battery. This supercar is equipped with a blade type battery with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) material from BYD.

The installed LFP battery has a capacity of 80 kWh. BYD claims that with the LFP battery the YangWang U9 can travel as far as 465 km on one charge. Maximum charging power reaches 500 kW. Charging from 30 percent to 80 percent only takes 10 minutes.

In China, this electric supercar will be sold for 1.68 million yuan. If converted into rupiah, it means around IDR 3.6 billion.

For your information, YangWang is a high-end sub-brand from BYD. The YangWang U9 is his second car. Previously, YangWang had launched the U8 SUV which has the ability to float on water.
