The BYD Yuan Plus EV is now available in Costa Rica and will retain its name. Previously, when this electric SUV became available in Australia and Singapore, it had to adopt a different name. But with Costa Rica, nothing changes, and it’d retain its Chinese name.
This launch proves the brand’s expansion into more markets away from its comfort zone. Despite the change in name with different regions, the vehicle remains the same. Purchasing this SUV in Costa Rica is possible by Cori Motors, an official distributor.
Let’s now take a look at the basic specifications of this electric SUV. This EV CES with the company’s iconic Blade battery pack and a Dragon Face 3.0 design. The range attainable with the battery in this vehicle reaches up to 510. This is impressive and can compete with what the Tesla model Y has to offer.
There will be two variants of this vehicle that will be available for buyers to choose from. The first variant offers an energy capacity of 49.92kWh while the second kick it up to 60.48kWh. Both models will retail for less than $25,500 and are already available for purchase via the official distributor.
The company promises that the BYD Yuan Plus will not be the only EV from its factory to grace Costa Rica. After this, more vehicles will as well make their way to the shores of the country after the Chinese launch. The expansion of Chinese EV makers into other regions is growing, and BYD Yuan Plus’s presence in Costa Rica proves true to this fact.
