BYD is one of the largest EV makers in China, and also has a solid presence in the global markets, especially Europe. The carmaker's e6 was launched in India last year as the country's first battery-powered MPV. The vehicle will target only the fleet operators in the country. The brand has expertise in making electric cars and buses.

The BYD e6 electric MPV features a ‘Dragon-face’ inspired styling. The snout of the electric MPV features a slim chrome bar that is flanked with new headlamps assembly stretching out towards the sides. There are projector lamps along with DRLs positioned on the lower side. The e6 doesn't get a traditional front main grille, but a perforated mesh structure to allow the passage of minimal air, which is neatly designed.

The key highlight inside the cabin of the e6 is its rotatable touchscreen infotainment system. The electric MPV gets a 71.7 kwh blade battery that has been rated to deliver over 500 km of full charge range.
