Expansion In NCR And Future Strategy

“New Delhi has immense potential for premium passenger vehicles, and additional 18,000 charging stations are planned to be installed across the city by 2024. The goal is to have one station for every 15 electric vehicles inside the city.” – Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of Electric Passenger Vehicle Business of BYD India 

BYD plans to set up 18,000 new EV charging stations in Delhi over the next two years. The carmaker’s EVs will initially be brought into India as complete knock-down kits (CKDs) that will be locally assembled.

BYD will reveal its plans for local manufacturing and future EVs, alongside its novel Blade battery tech and dedicated EV platform, at Auto Expo 2023 in January.
