New Ocean Series Design Concept Indeed, this accomplished hatchback is packed with desirable tech, it’s extremely efficient and it produces zero CO2 and NOx emissions. It possesses many more qualities – so, without further ado, let’s delve a little deeper…

Appropriately enough, given its name, the BYD DOLPHIN adopts the sensory aesthetics of real-life ocean waves. The result: a car that always looks its best, whether on the move or parked in the driveway, thanks to its flowing contours.
Leading Lights The BYD DOLPHIN is equipped with high-intensity, longer lasting adaptive LED headlights (with follow-me-home functionality), LED daytime running lights and LED taillights. From back to front, this all-electric vehicle offers exceptional visibility – and it’s always easy for other road users to spot.
Dashboard Display With its metal trim detail that runs along the entire dashboard, the futuristic suspended center console creates a modern, dynamic driving environment.

A 12.8-inch touchscreen display takes pride of place on the BYD DOLPHIN's dashboard and serves as your portal to a world of connectivity and entertainment while offering the option of voice-activated control. Other infotainment highlights include a six-speaker sound system, four USB-A and USB-C inputs, and Bluetooth connectivity, the latter of which enables audio streaming. Also included as standard are satellite navigation and Apple smartphone integration.
Storage Solutions Four 20-inch luggage compartments can easily fit in the trunk. The seats can be split 60:40 to expand the 345-litre boot to 1,310 litres when both seats are folded down.
Sustainable Seating A sustainable car such as the BYD DOLPHIN fully deserves its eco-friendly vegan leather seats, which not only offer aesthetic appeal but provide full support and comfort, no matter how long the journey. With multiple-way adjustment, you can customize your seat to your every need.

Numerous storage areas are available throughout the cabin, including large door pockets, a covered storage cubby, and a hollowed storage tray beneath the main driver information screen.
Blue-Sky Roof A full-size panoramic sunroof lets the sunshine into your motoring life, providing the cabin with an even lighter and airier ambience than is already apparent. Don’t worry if the sun’s rays prove too bright because a retractable shade is also included.
e-Platform 3.0 Designed specifically by BYD for its range of pure-electric vehicles, the all-new e-Platform 3.0 promotes enhanced efficiency, as much as 89%, which is an industry-leading figure. It also maximises safety thanks to its structural rigidity, which is designed to withstand almost any collision.

In a wide range of temperatures, the BYD DOLPHIN's energy-saving heat pump system operates at optimal capacity. In so doing, it delivers enhanced thermal efficiency while minimising energy loss, thus offering an improved driving range. Indeed, with a single charge, the BYD DOLPHIN is capable of an impressive 262 miles.
BYD Blade Battery BYD’s pioneering spirit has given rise to a new type of battery, one of the most efficient of its kind in the world and which threatens to supersede its conventional lithium-ion counterpart. The BYD Blade Battery is so called because of its cutting-edge appearance and qualities. As opposed to regular lithium-ion batteries, it’s composed of lithium iron-phosphate, which offers greater thermal stability and durability.
An Accommodating Rear Compartment The BYD DOLPHIN's rear bench more than comfortably seats three passengers. Unlike many electric cars, it’s complemented by an entirely flat floor which means that the person in the middle is provided with ample legroom.

Numerous cubby spaces are located around the cabin, including a good-sized glovebox, capacious door bins and a pair of cup-holders. Whenever 60/40 split-folding rear seats are dropped, a 345-litre boot quickly grows to a 1,310-litre capacity, offering more than enough room to contain the results of a weekly shopping excursion.
Introducing the World’s First Mass-Produced 8-in-1 Electric Powertrain Eight constituent parts – Vehicle Control Unit, Battery Management System, Motor Control Unit, Power Distribution Unit, DC-DC controller, on-board charger, drive motor and transmission – are carefully combined to create a super-efficient powertrain. It also delivers noteworthy performance levels, including 0-62mph in just seven seconds.
    High-efficiency heat pump system In a wide range of temperatures, the Dolphin’s energy-saving heat pump system operates at optimal capacity. In so doing, it delivers enhanced thermal efficiency while minimising energy loss, thus offering increased driving range.

    Developing the world's first mass-produced 8-in-1 electric powertrain system, greatly improving space efficiency and energy efficiency.
    Enhanced Safety Lithium iron phosphate, the raw material, has several beneficial properties: slow heat generation, low heat release, and no oxygen release. The unique flat rectangle shape also improves cooling efficiency and preheating performance. Blade Battery has safely passed the nail penetration test without emitting fire or smoke.
    Optimised Strength The aluminum structure, with high-strength panels on upper and lower side of the pack, greatly enhances the rigidity in vertical direction. Arranged in an array in one pack, each cell serves as a structural beam to help withstand the force. It is this revolutionary design that gives optimised strength to the Blade Battery.
