Shenzhen, China – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – On September 8, BYD officially launched the Electronic Platform 3.0 for Pure Electric Vehicles. With exceptional advantages in terms of intelligence, efficiency, safety and aesthetics, the electronic platform 3.0 aims to promote the performance of NEVs in terms of safety and autonomy at low temperature, as well as improve intelligent driving experiences, to build new, more efficient and safer intelligent electric vehicles. Therefore, the new generation BYD electronic platform covers vehicles of various sizes from small to large and will always be open to industry to facilitate the development of intelligent electric vehicles around the world.
Built on the 3.0 electronics platform, the unveiled Ocean-X Concept is a high-performance mid-size sports sedan. The Ocean-X brings whole new experiences in performance and intelligent driving with fully integrated blade batteries in the body, an 8-in-1 electric powertrain and all-wheel-drive architecture.
Wang Chuanfu, chairman and chairman of BYD, said that the 3.0 electronic platform is the vital factor for its transition to intelligence from electrification to NEV change and also the cradle of the next generation of EVs. BYD’s new integrated energy solutions encompass the acquisition, storage and application of energy. With the help of this comprehensive solution, BYD aims to build a zero emission ecosystem within a closed loop to combat global warming through practical actions.
Regarding safety, equipped with ultra-secure blade batteries while integrating the pack into the body of the car, the e-platform 3.0 builds a special structure of pure electric vehicle chassis to increase the rigidity of the vehicle.
Regarding high efficiency, the new platform allows autonomy of over 1,000 km thanks to the world’s first 8-in-1 electric powertrain. In addition, the world’s first fast-charging technology provides a range of up to 150 km after a 5-minute charge. The direct cooling and heating system originally designed for batteries increases thermal efficiency by up to 20% while reducing energy loss. In addition, the heat pump system which can operate in temperatures of -30 to 60 ℃, increased the range up to 20% in winter, as the system harnesses the waste heat from the environment, from the powertrain, interior and even batteries. . Finally, the all-new electric AWD system delivers improved 0-100 km / h acceleration to 2.9sec, resulting in lower power consumption compared to 2WD vehicles, while still allowing users to enjoy the high performance of all-wheel-drive electric vehicles.
As for intelligence, the 3.0 electronic platform has deeply integrated the drive, brake and steering system. The industry’s first powertrain domain controller was developed through the full use of the rapid response of electric motors and was applied on the EA1 (code name) model. BYD’s intelligent cockpit domain controller and intelligent body domain controller are already in mass production. When it comes to software, BYD has independently developed the BYD operating system which decouples hardware and software, providing an elite collaboration system for high levels of intelligent driving.
On the aesthetic side, the vehicle has shorter overhangs and a longer wheelbase, considerably widening the passenger space; a lower body and a longer wheelbase release the aerodynamic design of the vehicle, lowering the drag coefficient to 0.21Cd.
Ocean-X, a mid-size concept car built on the basis of the 3.0 electronic platform, excels in safety, range, charging, intelligence and design, making it an intelligent EV more efficient and safer for the next generation.
