The BYD YangWang U9 – A $145,000 Chinese Electric Supercar / 62MPH In 2.0 s. YangWang U9 Is A $145,000 Electric Supercar From China That Hits 60 In 2.0 Sec
During the presentation of the U8 electric off-roader, YangWang, BYD’s newly launched luxury EV brand, had a surprise for us in the form of the U9 battery-powered supercar.
The upcoming performance model incorporates the brand’s “Gate of Time and Space” design language. It has a low-slung silhouette with two doors and complex aero components. At the front, the C-shaped LED headlights are quite large, hugging the F1-style nose in combination with the vents on the pronounced fenders. The splitter has integrated fins and yellow accents just like the side skirts and the rear diffuser.
Black elements around the bodywork like the ones next to the side air intakes create a duo-tone finish, contrasting the bright yellow shade. Another highlight is the transparent fin sticking out of the vented rear windshield that looks like a Lamborghini engine cover. The inlets below the full-width LED taillights are a typical design trait of supercars but in Yangwang’s case, they appear to be blocked.
The Yangwang U9 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in a claimed 2 seconds flat which is only 0.1 seconds slower than the rival Aion Hyper SSR from GAC. BYD didn’t reveal the power output but confirmed it will be equipped with the “Yisifang” tech for its quad motor setup. This will be a shared feature among all Yangwang models, with the independently controlled electric motors allowing sophisticated torque vectoring functions.
Interestingly, BYD’s Yangwang U9 is not a concept but a production vehicle. When it launches in China, it will be priced over ¥1,000,000 ($145,340). This puts it right against GAC’s Aion Hyper Hyper SSR which starts from ¥1,286,000 ($186,870).
