BYD, a global pioneer in new energy solutions with fully electric vehicles, served as a spearheader towards zero-emission mobility after the brand graced the recently-concluded 2023 Manila International Auto Show.
BYD, through its authorized local distributor Solar Transport and Automotive Resources Corp., showcased its latest and premium 100% electric vehicles with sustainable design and a full display of the “floating” Blade Battery, a game-changer in the EV world in terms of safety and efficiency.
“EVs offer a number of benefits over traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, including lower emissions, reduced fuel costs, and smoother and quieter operations,” said Mark Andrew Tieng, President and CEO of Solar Transport. He added that BYD has contributed immensely to cutting down carbon emissions. In fact, as of April 13, 2023, BYD has saved 31,941,212,881 kilograms of carbon emissions equivalent to planting around 900 million trees.
How was BYD able to do this? It is powered by the company’s commitment to “Build Your Dreams” — Sustainability, Innovation, and Global Reach.
Innovation is at the heart of BYD. It has developed the revolutionary Blade Battery. Unlike conventional EV batteries that are made up of thousands of individual cylindrical battery cells connected together, the Blade Battery is composed of highly efficient battery cells that are stacked together in a unique structure that resembles a blade. This innovative design allows for more space-efficient, and better cooling, enabling BYD to reach another level of safety and efficiency.
Part of BYD’s innovation is the e-Platform 3.0, which adopts the integrated design of the blade battery and the body and, on this basis, allows BYD to reduce manufacturing costs and increase production efficiency. This system can be configured for front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, depending on the vehicle’s design.
