Scoop! BYD Q1 electric truck spotted in India

The BYD Q1 comes with a 255 kWh battery that is said to offer a maximum range of 200 km on a single charge.

Having launched the e6 electric MPV last year, it seems like China-based BYD is now gearing up to introduce the Q1 electric truck in the Indian market. The heavy-duty all-electric tractor has been spotted at the Kattupalli port near Chennai.

The BYD Q1 is powered by an electric motor that has an output of 282 BHP and 450 Nm. It uses a 255 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery that can be charged in 7 hours using a 40 kW AC charger or in just 2.5 hours with a 120 kW DC charger.

The BYD Q1 electric truck has a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 40 tonnes. It has a range of 200 km on a single charge and can reach a top speed of 85 km/h.

The truck comes equipped with pneumatic disc brakes with regenerative braking and ABS.
