BYD’s Debut Electric Pickup Truck to Hit Markets This Year, Posing Challenge to Tesla and Ford

BYD is getting ready to release its first electric pickup truck this year, aiming to compete with big names like Ford and Tesla.

The truck is designed to be a midsize or large one and will be sold worldwide.

They’ve shown some pictures of the truck, but it’s hard to tell much about it from the images.

They haven’t said how much it will cost yet.

This pickup is meant to challenge popular models like the Ford Ranger, F-150 Lightning, Toyota Hilux, and Tesla Cybertruck.

BYD already sells a range of vehicles, from the Seagull, which starts at about $10,000, to the U9 supercar, which costs about $240,000.

Although BYD doesn’t sell cars in the U.S. yet, where pickup trucks are popular, it does business in places like Thailand.

Despite being the world’s largest electric vehicle maker last year, BYD faced a drop in sales in the first three months of this year.

Despite being the world’s top EV maker, BYD faced a sales decline in the first quarter.

They sold fewer electric vehicles compared to the last quarter of 2023.

In contrast, Tesla, their main competitor, saw a slight decrease in sales compared to the previous year but still sold more cars than BYD in the first quarter.
