Named after the first imperial dynasty of China, BYD Qin is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that hit the market in December 2013. The concept for it was launched at the 2012 Beijing motor show alongside BYD Surui, with which it shares a platform. The production model was unveiled in Shanghai in April 2013.

As the second-gen F3DM, the Qin features an upgraded hybrid driving system, boasting a 0-100km/h time of 5.9 seconds. Equipped with a 550V 13kWh LiFePO4 battery pack and 110kW electric motor, it can drive up to 70km without burning gas. The range can be extended when a turbo-charged, direct-injection 1.5L starts to work.

The central government provides a subsidy of 35,000 Yuan for each purchase of the PHEV on top of regional incentives. In Shenzhen, the Qin can be owned for 119,800 Yuan after various subsidies are applied.

BYD targets to sell 2,000 units of Qin each month, and export it to the US in late 2015. In 2014, 14,747 units were delivered.
