The DENZA pure-electric car, developed and built by BYD-Daimler, is the production model of the concept unveiled in 2012. It was launched in April 2014 at the Beijing Auto Show. A prototype was showcased in Shanghai in April 2013.

Weighing over two tons, the DENZA car is positioned slightly above the BYD e6, with which it shares a similar e-drivtrain system.

Two trim levels are provided in 2014, the Lifestyle and Executive, selling for 369,000 Yuan and 399,000 Yuan respectively before the application of incentives and subsidies. In the city of Beijing, subsidies for each DENZA car amounts to about 110,000 Yuan.

The DENZA EV targets primarily large Chinese cities and no plan for exports has been announced. In the initial stage, through three dealers, Pangda, Lei Shing Hong, and Zhongsheng Group, it will be offered only to residents in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. Deliveries to Beijing buyers started in late October 2014. Working with ABB Group, DENZA plans to to build the world’s largest fast-charging network serving EV owners.

In 2014, only 132 units of the DENZA EV were sold.
