Chinese automaker BYD’s India arm has completed deliveries of 450 units of the e6 electric MPV across India. BYD is currently selling the e6 EV through five recently inaugurated showrooms in Delhi Mumbai, Kochi, Vijayawada and Hyderabad. Currently, the BYD e6 is the only electric MPV being sold in the country and competes against other ICE models such as the Toyota Innova and Kia Carnival.

Inside, it gets leather-wrapped seats and a 10.1-inch rotatable touchscreen. It also gets a CN95 air purification system.
Speaking on the early success, Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of Electric Passenger Vehicle Business of BYD India, said, “This growth demonstrates our commitment to mother nature and reducing carbon emissions by creating a global, truly zero-emission ecosystem. The All-New e6 scores high on battery safety and is India’s first model to adopt BYD’s puncture-resistant Blade Battery.”
