BYD unveil Ocean-M concept at 2024 Beijing Auto Show

BYD unveiled its new Ocean-M concept. The concept previews a new production car set to launch in the third quarter of this year. A radical looking hatchback it appears to be a bit bigger than the Dolphin and so is likely aimed more as a VW ID.3 competitor. Given the hatchback shape and looks it has almost certainly been designed with cracking the European market in mind.

BYD has so far said little about the car other than it is meant to be on a new electric platform, possibly e-platform 4.0 and that they are aiming the car as the industry first rear-wheel drive EV hot hatch. It’s possible that the car may be one of the first to benefit from the new second generation blade batteries.
