The Shenzhen-based firm has imported a total of 100 units of the Tang EV to the Scandinavian nation.


The Chinese EV-maker shipped the first 100 BYD Tang EVs from Shanghai to Norway about two months ago, marking the company's first passenger car shipment to a European country. BYD plans to deliver as many as 1,500 units of the BYD Tang EV to dealers in Norway this year. The company has pre-sold 500 units in the country already. Along with its Scandinavian distributor RSA, the Chinese auto veteran has built up a network of 45 dealers.

 The subsidized price of the EV in China is CNY 279,500 to 314,800, while the car will be sold for about 600,000 Norwegian kroner in Norway, which is about CNY 130,000 more expensive. 

In July this year, BYD's sales of new energy passenger cars soared by 262.7% year-on-year to reach 50,057 units, setting a new record for the firm's own monthly sales. This also marked a record high for China's monthly sales of new energy passenger cars.
