Tough off-road! BYD's high-end brand spy photos of new vehicles exposed.

Recently, the high-end brand of BYD, Yngwie Automobile, exposed spy shots of its first new car, Yngwie R1. It can be seen that the new car, covered in camouflage, is undergoing road tests in an outdoor setting.

Based on previously released information, Yngwie R1 is positioned as a hardcore off-road vehicle, and the spy shots confirm this. The new car not only has the ability to travel on rough stone roads in the wild, but also can pass shallow water sections, indicating that its ground clearance is definitely not low.

It is worth mentioning that from the design drawings previously released, Yngwie R1 will also be equipped with a laser radar, which can be expected to have advanced driving assistance capabilities.

It is reported that Yngwie R1 is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of this year and officially launched in the first half of next year.

Final Words

Currently, the most well-known domestically produced off-road vehicle should be the Tank 300 under the Great Wall brand. As the first entry of BYD in the hardcore off-road field and the first model of Yngwie brand, Yngwie R1 is naturally highly anticipated.

As a high-end brand, it is rumored that the price of Yngwie R1 will be around one million yuan, which means its direct competitors will be the Mercedes G-Class and the Land Rover Defender.

The addition of laser radar has the potential to make Yngwie R1 the most intelligent hardcore off-road vehicle. However, in off-road scenarios, how to protect the laser radar from damage during driving still needs to be answered by BYD at the release event.
