BYD has officially announced that as of September 30, the Denza D9 minivan, which was released 38 days ago, has collected more than 28,000 orders.
It turns out that on average 736 such cars are ordered daily. This enabled the Denza D9 to break the record of the previous minivan king in China’s domestic market, the Buick GL8, which had 10,867 orders in August (about 350 per day).
The electric version of the Denza D9 is based on the BYD 3.0 platform, while the hybrid model is based on the DM-i platform. The hybrid version of the minivan is equipped with a 1.5-liter petrol turbo engine, which is combined with an electric motor and a rear-wheel drive system. The range of this model is from 945 to 1040 km, of which 190 km the car can drive on pure electricity, and fuel consumption does not exceed 6.2 liters per 100 km. The electric version has a range of 620 km and a charging power of 166 kW.
The dimensions of the car are 5250 x 1960 x 1920 mm with a wheelbase of 3110 mm. The car received a remote opening of the tailgate using UWB wireless technology, captain’s chairs on the second row with numerous adjustments and a massage function, a panoramic roof with a large sunroof and even a refrigerator. The manufacturer claims that the car is designed to comfortably accommodate seven people with the same number of suitcases. The car received seven screens, including three on the front panel: a 10.25-inch instrument panel, a 15.6-inch center display and a projection screen. Two more are on the backs of the front seats and two on the armrests of the second row of seats. The interior trim uses nappa leather and wood.
The price of a new minivan ranges from $48,000 to $67,000 in China.
