Quote:
“In the past few years, with the support of the Indian government and our local partners, BYD has realised the local design, R&D, manufacturing of electric buses in India, and established battery manufacturing facilities here. We are also the first OEM in the country to export e-buses to overseas markets from India. Our pure electric buses have cemented their position as a market leader in the Indian e-bus segment,” said Liu Xueliang, Managing Director of BYD India.

“Seeing the huge potential of India’s EV market, BYD is responding to the Indian government’s call to promote the local market and make India a global hub for EVs, and so today we are proud to announce that BYD is moving toward its next step in India. We are delighted to launch the all-new pure electric T3 MPV and T3 minivan for the Indian market and are confident that our products will set a benchmark in India’s electric van segment. We always strive to bring the most advanced and cleanest technology into the Indian market and better serve our local customers,” he added.

“At this early stage, we are going to focus on creating a more efficient, more reliable B2B and electric public transportation sector,” said Ketsu Zhang, Executive Director of BYD India. “We will also gradually look at increasing investment and manufacturing electric vans locally, according to Indian market demand and government policies.”

This looks like the Ashok Leyland Stile. Reasonably good specs. And who would take care of sales? Olectra-BYD?

Don't know about India. But China is definitely on its way to vision2020.

A combination of great specs and timing. More and more I find my prejudice against Chinese cars (EVs especially) becoming less and less, especially since the incumbent OEMs (Indian or otherwise) are so lagging behind in both of those aspects.

Can small businesses buy the BYD T3?
There seems to be absolutely no information about its availability to public

Spotted a TN registered BYD minivan today in Hyderabad near KBR park. It was a passenger vehicle. The dimensions looked similar to a Maruti Eeco. It didnít have any variant badging on it.
