At the presentation of the YangWang U8 electric off-road vehicle, BYD’s newly launched luxury EV brand surprised attendees with the unveiling of the U9, a battery-powered supercar. The Yangwang U9 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in a claimed 2 seconds flat which is only 0.1 seconds slower than the rival Aion Hyper SSR from GAC.
BYD didn’t reveal the power output but confirmed it will be equipped with the “Yisifang” tech for its quad motor setup. This will be a shared feature among all Yangwang models, with the independently controlled electric motors allowing sophisticated torque vectoring functions.
