    But back to the EV part:

    Daimler-BYD electric-vehicle brand to be called Denza
    Daimler and BYD are looking to capitalize on a China EV market expected to surge during the next few years. Green technology firm Pike Research said in a report last year that China will account for more than 550,000 EV sales in 2015, up from about 30,000 in 2010, and the country will overtake Japan as the largest battery-electric vehicle maker in the Asia-Pacific region.

    BYD intros dual-mode electric Qin vehicle, Remote Driving key for outside-the-car operation -- Engadget

    As if that weren't enough, the outfit's showcasing a new Remote Driving Controller for its F3 Plus, which enables owners to perform a variety of driving functions -- moving it forward / back, turning left / right and traveling at a "restricted speed" -- without having the owner inside of the vehicle. Naturally, we're anxiously awaiting a test unit of our own. Or, for a wave of lawsuits -- whichever comes first.

Meanwhile, with the advanced technologies following the strictest standards, the product’s technology and quality have been improved drastically. 6B has a fashion, sporty appearance and is equipped with a 1.5 TI turbocharged engine and DCT double automatic clutch transmission.

    Another particular focus is the new configuration “i” including network platform “i” and “i” robot. BYD “i” system has advanced design concept as “i security”, “i efficiency”, “i enjoy”, “i link”.
