BYD's first pickup truck spied ahead of global unveil

BYD could offer the pickup truck with both plug-in hybrid and electric powertrain options.

BYD will soon be expanding its product lineup with its first pickup truck.

The new BYD pickup truck is yet to be named, but it's reportedly aimed as a direct rival to the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Hilux. Now, ahead of its global unveil, the pickup truck has been spotted undergoing testing in Mexico.

In the spy images, the BYD pickup truck can be seen without any camouflage, revealing most of its exterior design & styling details. This includes the massive BYD logo on the grille, flanked by C-shaped LED headlights on either end connected by a DRL bar. The rear also gets C-shaped LED lights connected by a light bar. Other details include large wheel arches with plastic cladding, a side step, usable roof rails, a roll cage and a medium-sized cargo bed.

While pictures of the interiors are not available, reports suggest that the pickup truck could get a 15.6-inch rotating touchscreen infotainment system as seen on the Seal sedan, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

BYD could offer the pickup truck with both plug-in hybrid and electric powertrain options. Technical details, though, will be revealed closer to its launch, which is expected sometime later this year.
