BYD Auto debuted their E6 full-electric crossover, reportedly capable of a 250-mile trip on just one full charge, putting it ahead of any electric car for sale or announced. We'll probably never see it.
Chinese automaker BYD introduced their BYD F3DM EREV (Extended Range Electric Vehicle) here in Detroit, a car similar to the Chevy Volt. Except the BYD hybrid's already in production. Also, it's half the price.
