BYD has recently announced plans to introduce the Qin at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.
According to the Chinese carmaker, the model is actually the replacement for the F3DM and is believed to be headed for production in 2013. It features an aggressive front bumper, LED-infused headlights and uniquely-shaped taillights.
Power will come from a hybrid-electric powertrain which uses a 1.5-liter petrol engine, an electric motor and a 16 kWh battery. This allows the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and can travel 50 km on electricity alone. The car has a fuel consumption of only 2-liter per 100 km, but it is still a concept.
Full details of the BYD Qin will be announced on April 23 in China.
