Equipped with a 29.58kWh battery pack, the Shark offers a pure electric NEDC range of 100 km, while the NEDC range extends up to 840 kilometers in combined petrol-electric mode. BYD also claims a fuel consumption rating of 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers.

BYD introduced its new vehicle, the BYD Shark pickup truck, in Mexico on May 15. The Shark is targeting the US and Australian markets, although the possibility of a launch in China has not been confirmed yet. The truck comes in two variants: the GL version priced at 899,980 Mexican Pesos (approximately Rs. 48,42,823) and the GS version priced at 969,800 Mexican Pesos (approximately Rs. 52,18,559). It is available in three colors: Pallas White, Marmara Black, and Atlantis Grey.

In terms of dimensions, the BYD Shark measures 5457 mm in length, 1971 mm in width, 1925 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 3260 mm.

The interior of the BYD Shark features a driver-focused layout with a 10.25-inch LCD instrument panel, a large 12.8-inch central touchscreen for infotainment, and a futuristic 12-inch heads-up display (HUD). It also offers compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for better smartphone integration.

For enhanced security and visibility, the pickup truck is equipped with a 360° panoramic view camera system and a 180° chassis camera. This combination provides an enhanced 540° ultra-wide transparent panoramic image, reducing blind spots. The BYD Shark marks the automaker’s entry into the mid-size pickup truck segment, initially targeting markets outside of China.
