Aiming for the Tesla Model S
The streamlined and elegant Han, BYD's top-of-the-range electric saloon, has the Tesla Model S firmly in its sights. At just under five metres in length, the Han boasts an impressive performance, a spacious interior and a wealth of technology. The power generated by the Han's two electric motors, which together supply no less than 517 hp and 680 Nm to its four wheels, is immediate evidence that the Han is no ordinary electric vehicle. The battery has a capacity of 85.4 kWh, with an official range of 521 km.
Aerodynamic resistance is the bane of a vehicle's range, which is why BYD made sure the Han has a sleek, streamlined look. This design, coupled with a drag coefficient of just 0.23, means this luxury saloon can travel 521 km on a full charge, which equates to consumption of 16.4 kWh per 100 km as standard.
Plenty of space
With a wheelbase of 2.92 metres, the 4.99-metre-long, 1.5-metre-high Han boasts plenty of space, with lots of headroom and an ocean of legroom in the back. The 410-litre boot is slightly smaller than average, with a rather narrow opening.
Lithium iron phosphate
Like other BYD models, the Han draws its power from a Blade battery. Developed in house by BYD, the LFP (lithium iron phosphate) battery is safer and more compact than conventional lithium-ion batteries and is built directly into the chassis, giving the structure extra rigidity and freeing up even more space in the interior. While the battery capacity comes in above average at 85.40 kWh, the maximum high-speed charging capacity is below average for the segment, at 110 kW.
