Launched at the 2015 Shanghai motor show, the e5 is the pure-electric version of BYD Surui (also known as BYD Suri, F5). Smaller and more affordable than the e6, the 5 targets primarily the market of taxi cabs. The compact EV comes with a 65Ah LFP batter pack and an electric motor able to put out up to 160KW (rated power output is 80KW). Its driving range can reach 220KM. With incentives and subsidies applied, the e5 can be owned for less than 140,000 Yuan.
