BYD has concluded the launch of the third model of its premium brand YangWang, the U6 electric sedan. This representative sedan is destined to be the most aerodynamic car on the market, because as announced by the brand itself, it has a coefficient of 0.195. Let’s remember that the Mercedes-Benz EQS, which holds the current record, remains at 0.20.
In the images leaked a few days ago by the patent office, this concern for aerodynamics is already visible: retractable door handles, active spoiler, diffuser… Although the leisure model has conventional mirrors, It has now been confirmed that the cameras will also offer it as an option.
The YangWang U6 will be positioned below the U8 off-roader and the U9 hypercar within the Chinese manufacturer’s range. Everything shows that between the U6 and U8 a large SUV will be introduced, which is more focused on road use than its older brother. while the U6 will be the opposite of the aforementioned EQS the U7 competes with the EQS SUV and the U8 with the EQG.
Chinese media estimate that the starting price of the U6 in its home market will be 800,000 yuan (102,395 euros at the exchange rate), a figure that is likely to increase significantly when it arrives in Europe, as it has been confirmed that YangWang will sell its luxury. cars on the old continent in the short term.

Initially, the U6 will receive the same propulsion system as the U8 and U9, consisting of a set of four electric motors capable of delivering a combined power of 1,180 CV (868 kW). Therefore, it will be more performance-oriented than the BMW i7 and Mercedes-Benz EQS, which is similar to the Lucid Air Sapphire and Tesla Model S Plaid.
You can also equip the sophisticated DiSus-X intelligent suspension whose operation is based on the combination of three technologies: DiSus-C (adaptive body control system), DiSus-A (pneumatic body control system with high adjustment) and Disus-P (hydraulic body control system).
This suspension reduces roll by compensating for body tilt, which reduces the risk of overturning and helps with acceleration and braking providing stability and maneuverability through very precise longitudinal, vertical and lateral control.
