The world’s first mass produced plugin hybrid electric car will go on sale in December in China. “BYD, a company that first made its reputation as the world’s largest maker of cell phone batteries, has announced it will release the F3DM hybrid sedan on December 15.” So when will US have a plug-in hybrid car? BYD says, they will launch the same car in USA and Europe sometime in 2010 or 2011. It is almost the same time when GM is scheduled to launch their own Chevy Volt.
The car can travel atleast 60 miles on a single full-charge which is 20 miles higher than what GM promises with Chevy Volt. The Price? RMB 150,000 or US$22,000 (approx.)
