Shenzhen, China–(business wire) – On September 8, BYD officially launched e-Platform 3.0 for pure electric vehicles. With outstanding benefits in intelligence, efficiency, safety and aesthetics, e-Platform 3.0 aims to boost the safety and performance of NEVs in low-temperature driving ranges, as well as intelligent driving to create more efficient and safer new intelligent EVs To improve the experience. Therefore, the new generation BYD e-platform includes various sized vehicles ranging from small to large and will still be open to the industry to facilitate the development of intelligent EVs across the globe.
Built on the E-Platform 3.0, the unveiled Ocean-X concept is a mid-sized sporty sedan with high performance. The Ocean-X brings brand new experiences in performance and intelligent driving thanks to a fully integrated blade battery, 8-in-1 electric powertrain and all-wheel-drive architecture in the car body.
BYD President and President Wang Chuanfu said that the transformation of e-platform 3.0 NEV is the key factor for its transition from electrification to intelligence and also the cradle for the next generation of EVs. BYD’s integrated new energy solutions include energy acquisition, storage and applications. With the help of this comprehensive solution, BYD aims to build a zero-emissions ecosystem within a closed loop to address global warming through practical action.
With regard to safety, equipped with an ultra-safe blade battery while integrating the pack into the car body, the E-Platform 3.0 forms a special pure electric vehicle frame structure to enhance the rigidity of the vehicle.
With regards to high efficiency, the new platform enables a range of over 1,000 km via 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 5 minutes of charging. The direct cooling and heating system originally designed for batteries increases thermal efficiency by up to 20% while reducing energy loss. Additionally, heat pump systems that can operate at temperatures from -30 ℃ to 60 ℃ have increased the range by up to 20% in winter, as the system is less dependent on the surroundings, powertrain, passenger compartment and even the battery. Takes advantage of residual heat. . Lastly, the brand-new electric AWD system has improved 0-100 km/h acceleration to 2.9 seconds, resulting in energy consumption compared to 2WD vehicles, while allowing users to enjoy the higher performance of an AWD EV. Is.
With regard to intelligence, the e-Platform 3.0 has deeply integrated drive, braking and steering systems. The industry’s first drive train domain controller has been developed through full use of the fast response of electric motors and is implemented on the model EA1 (code name). BYD’s Smart Cockpit Domain Controller and Smart Body Domain Controller are already in mass production. For software, BYD independently developed BYD OS which separates hardware and software, offering a unique collaboration system for a high level of intelligent driving.
On the aesthetics side, the vehicle has short overhangs and a longer wheelbase, which significantly expands passenger space; A lower body and a longer wheelbase free up the vehicle’s aerodynamic design, reducing the drag coefficient to 0.21Cd.
The Ocean-X, a mid-size concept car based on E-Platform 3.0, excels in safety, range, charging, intelligence and design, making it a more efficient and safer intelligent EV for the next generation.
