Chinese electric vehicle and battery maker BYD yesterday announced the launch of sales in Hungary, according to autopro.hu.
BYD has selected two dealers where buyers can order the fully electric vehicles: Wallis Motor and Duna Auto. Both have opened BYD showrooms in the capital. BYD aims to establish a network of at least 20 dealers in Hungary within two years.
BYD Europe managing director Michael Shu said the company had "deep-rooted experience" in Hungary, home to its BYD eBus division and an electric bus factory.
The carmaker is initially offering three models in Hungary, all with six-year or 150,000 km guarantees. Guarantees on the vehicle batteries are for eight years or 200,000 km. BYD offers buyers 24-hour roadside assistance and is setting up a network of mechanics.
Sales of BYD vehicles have started in 18 countries in Europe. Hungary is the first in the CEE region where sales have officially launched. BYD announced plans in the summer to set up a battery assembly plant on the outskirts of Budapest.
