Steve Clemons of Washington Note has been traveling in China, and thinks BYD’s E6 could clobber other automakers in the US market. It’ll sell for $22,000 and is a great car, he says.
And it’s an electric vehicle.
The E6, which is targeted in part for California and plans to launch there in 2011, is fully electric — and has a 400 km/250 mile range and goes up to 160 km/100 miles per hour.
I drove one yesterday, and it’s a great vehicle.
Warren Buffett thinks the same — and is now in the process of buying 10% of the company.
It can reach a 80% charge in 15 minutes, which makes it seriously practical too.
