Pivotal to the success of the Tang is BYD's 26 years of experience in pioneering battery research and development. The Tang is equipped with BYD's revolutionary 86.4kWh ultra-safe Blade Battery which powers the car from 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds and provides an unparalleled driving range of 528km (WLTP City) and 400km (WLTP combined). It also benefits from impressively fast charging from 30% to 80% in 30 minutes using a DC power output of 110kW.
Frank Dunvold, CEO of RSA, said: "We have enjoyed fantastic demand for the BYD Tang in just a few months since its launch, and we see this escalating at pace in 2022. The people of Norway are very environmentally conscious, and the pure-electric zero-emission Tang SUV is the perfect fit. It is stylish, comfortable and offers great driving performance, while being practical too. We don't see demand slowing down and we are fortunate to have good levels of supply coming through, which means customers are not having to wait for extended periods of time for delivery."
