BYD electric cars, available to lease in 2024

As a largely unknown brand in the UK, BYD is one of the biggest producers of electric vehicles in the world. They launched in 2023 in the UK and you can lease a BYD electric vehicle from us at DriveElectric right now.

Standing for ‘Build Your Dreams’, only Tesla sold more 100% electric vehicles in 2021 than BYD across the globe. Sales accelerated in 2022, so it’s no surprise the Chinese car brand launched in Europe and the UK in 2023. You’ll find a selection of BYD lease deals at DriveElectric for both personal and business leasing. 

Time for a quick pop quiz... what does BYD stand for? The answer is 'Build Your Dreams', one to remember the next time you're at a pub quiz!

Serious eco-credentials

BYD isn't just interested in building EVs either, the leadership team understands the wider ecosystem needed for the switch to an electrified mobility future. The company is also a big investor and manufacturer in battery technology, solar panels, electric buses, trucks and even forklifts.

The WLTP range for the 60.4 kWh model is around the 260 mile mark, with a real world range of around 210 to 220 miles. With the smaller battery, you get a real world range of around 150 to 160 miles.

Ultra-Rapid Charger NEC 2023 BYD Atto 3

BYD Atto 3

The BYD Atto 3 SUV was the first model to hit UK shores in 2023. It scooped the prestigious Electric Family Car of the Year Award in Belgium in 2023 and is set to be a big hit here too.

It’s equipped with a 60kWh battery pack which means a real-world range of over 200 miles on a full charge. It also benefits from BYD Blade Battery technology. These cobalt-free battery packs use Lithium Iron-Phosphate (LFP) and are said to be more durable than conventional lithium-ion batteries.

Plus, it’s loaded with the latest technology and safety systems too, making it an ideal family car.

Already in the UK since 2013...

Although BYD electric cars are new to UK roads, the vehicle manufacturer has actually had vehicles in Great Britain since 2013, that's because BYD also produces electric buses.

With more than 43 million kilometres already clocked up in the UK, it is estimated that some 46,000 tonnes of CO2 has been saved from going into the atmosphere thanks to these vehicles.

The major Chinese carmaker uses the term NEV to mean New Energy Vehicle. It isn't a term (widely) used by other manufacturers. BYD groups the following powered-vehicles as NEV

  • 100% electric vehicles
  • Plug-in hybrid vehicles
  • Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

BYD stands for Build Your Dreams. Founded in 2003, the Chinese company manufactures batteries, vehicles (including trucks and buses) and has significant expertise in electric vehicles.

The BYD Seal U is the first non-electric BYD vehicle to arrive in the UK. The model is actually a plug-in hybrid, so comes with a 1.5-litre internal combustion petrol engine and a blade battery with 18.3kWh capacity. The electric-only range of the model is said to be around 60 miles.

Therefore, as the BYD Seal U isn't a pure electric vehicle, it is unavailable through DriveElectric.
