With the goal of boosting its operations in Latin America and continuing to establish itself as one of the leading manufacturers of electric vehicles worldwide, BYD is making a big splash in Chile with the launch of two new electrified cars.
The Chinese manufacturer announced that the Yuan Plus EV and the Song Plus DM-i, two models with which it seeks to encourage and revolutionize electromobility in the country, are now available for reservation.
This offer of electric cars is in addition to those already introduced in the market, the Han EV, a sports sedan, and Tang E, a seven-passenger SUV.
