Not content with owning the mantle of Australia’s cheapest electric car, BYD has tonight confirmed it’ll bring a more powerful Dolphin Sport to Australia.
The electric hatch is coming in limited numbers, with just 1000 headed Down Under in 2024.
Although outputs haven’t been confirmed, the 100km/h sprint will take less than 7.0 seconds according to the boss of BYD’s local importer, EV Direct.
Priced at $49,890 before on-road costs, the Dolphin Sport is $11,000 more expensive than the base Dolphin also priced today.
The image above is an artist’s sketch, but we know the car will feature:
- Performance tyres
- Performance-styled wheels
- Sport-styled body kit
- “Tuned sports performance”
“For the price point of $49,890 – which for our hot hatch with premium features, premium design, and premium speed with a zero to 100km/h speed of sub 7.0 seconds is extremely attractive and unheard of,” EV Direct boss Luke Todd tonight told media.
