Chinese car manufacturer to launch new SUV in Vietnam: Starting at 350 million VND, comparable to Seltos, VF 6

The BYD Yuan UP is the latest electric car model from the Chinese brand and is expected to become their best-selling model.


The BYD Yuan UP is one of the smallest vehicles in the BYD “Yuan” lineup, positioned below the BYD Atto 3. It measures 4,310 x 1,830 x 1,675 mm and has a wheelbase of 2,620 mm. It can be seen that the BYD Yuan UP competes in the same segment as popular models like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Toyota Yaris Cross, which are currently available in Vietnam.

In terms of design, the BYD Yuan UP adopts the Dragon Face design language. Compared to the Atto 3, the Yuan UP has a sharper and more angular design. The front end stands out with sleek LED headlights, while the horizontal strip connecting the headlights and the lower bumper is painted in a contrasting black color. Both sides of the bumper feature additional small air vents.

From the rear, it bears a resemblance to the Mercedes-Benz GLB, with thick D-pillars, small rear windows, and extended LED taillights. Notably, the door handles are flush with the body of the car to optimize aerodynamics.

No images of the interior of the BYD Yuan UP have been released by the company yet.

According to Car News China, the BYD Yuan UP will be available with two engine options: 94 horsepower and 174 horsepower. Similarly, there will be two battery capacity options: 32 kWh and 45.1 kWh. The range on a full charge will vary from 301 km to 401 km.

The all-electric BYD Yuan UP is expected to have a starting price of 100,000 Chinese yuan (approximately 350 million Vietnamese dong).

BYD Yuan UP is likely to enter the Vietnamese market as the Chinese brand has hinted at its plans to introduce the model in the near future. If launched, the BYD Yuan UP will directly compete with the VinFast VF 6, as both are electric vehicles, while other competitors are gasoline or hybrid vehicles.
