Models of the BYD F3DM could reach the United States in 2010, and are priced around $22,000. BYD Auto says the BYD F3DM Fe battery packs reach a 50% charge in just ten minutes, and run for 63 miles on battery power alone. It can reach 60 miles-per-hour in 10.5 seconds, although it tops out at just 93 mph. With a 1.0-liter gas engine and electric motor, this Corolla lookalike has 168-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. That said, this car is in desperate need of a good nickname in English.
America must get more ecologically pro-active to lessen our dependence on foreign oil and save the world.
