BYD S6 Booking Begins

China's BYD is on the cusp of launching in the Iranian market the S6 sport utility vehicle with a special offer price of 920 million rials ($26,000).
The model, according to Donyaye Khodro, will be ready for customers on October 16 and will be initially offered by Karmania, a local car company.
The initial offer price is expected to be 23% cheaper than the forecourt price come October.
The BYD S6 was first introduced in 2010 at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China before hitting the Chinese market in 2011.
The SUV enjoyed great sales, thanks to its popular design, interior features and five-star C-NCAP crash-test rankings. Features like its TFT gauge cluster, onboard digital TV, smart key and remote control made it stand out among the competitors.
While the design of S6 might not be the most beautiful in the world, it offers many perks Iranian SUV buyers seek.
Its familiar Mitsubishi-sourced engines give buyers a choice of three powerplants and three transmissions[MM1]. Seating for five comes standard and the rear seats fold down, making room for more cargo.
The company also plans to launch the BYD E6, an all-electric family wagon in the local market later in the year. BYD has become synonymous in recent years with being the leader in the Chinese electric car market and with the entry of this car in Iran, it is likely to make a big splash.
The 60 kWh battery pack provides up to 186 miles/300 km of driving range per charge, but for 2016 the BYD E6 will get a bigger battery that will let it go up to 250 miles/400 km between charge, reports Electric Vehicle News.
The  BYD E6 will see its 60 kWh battery boosted to 82 kWh, increasing the curb weight by about 100 kg/220 lb, but adding almost 110 additional km of driving range per charge.
The automaker claims an energy density of 150 kWh. The price for such a vehicle in the United States stands at 1.6 billion rials ($48,350).
