The BYD Dolphin recently launched, aptly at Seaworld, The Gold Coast, in Australia to much fanfare. It was a big moment. It heralded the Dolphin as the lowest price EV, at just a touch over $40k on the road and it cemented BYD as a major competitor on the Australia EV market.
Now the dust as settled, we take a closer look at the BYD Dolphin online Configurator to see what you get for your $40,000 Australian dollars?
But it’s in the back wallet, or monthly payments that the Dolphin excels. Up against the MG4, similarly priced but with a bit more oomph under the bonnet, the competition for the EV buyers hard earned will be very interesting.
At least now there is some competition.
