With a design is simple and approachable, as with the rest of the vehicle. BYD DOLPHIN is instantly recognisable and futuristic due to its rounded profile and side silhouette resembling the graceful lines of a leaping dolphin.
Based on the Dolphin’s new energy attributes, the short front and rear overhangs and long wheelbase give the car a more spacious appearance.
Measuring 4,290 mm long and 1,770 mm wide (with wing mirrors unfolded), the BYD DOLPHIN features a 2,700 mm wheelbase optimised for space and comfort. The vehicle height is 1,570 mm.
With seating for five occupants, the ergonomically designed sports seats and headrests are made from vegan leather. The heated front seats have a six-way electric adjustment for the driver and a four-way electric adjustment for the front passenger.
The rear seats provide generous legroom for passengers, made possible by the e-Platform 3.0. The seats can split 60:40 allowing the 345-litre boot to be expanded to 1,310 litres when both seats are folded flat.
The seat’s shoulder and back support has been specially optimised, and the side wings are more upright, perfectly fitting the body’s curves for a more comfortable, wraparound ride. BYD DOLPHIN is designed with more than 20 practical and flexible storage spaces for daily travel, and the boot can easily store four standard 20-inch suitcases.
The BYD DOLPHIN range topping variants feature a large panoramic sunroof made of high-strength acoustic and thermally insulated double-layer grey glazing, with a glass area comparable to that of a D-class luxury car.
This provides users with an ultra-wide-angle view, a larger light area, and a more transparent view. It is also equipped with a 97 percent sunshade to keep you cool on hot Malaysian afternoons.
The classy interior of the BYD DOLPHIN is designed with smooth, expansive curves to create the illusion that the occupants are wrapped in waves.
By placing conventional functions at your fingertips, the dashboard’s simple and refined design provides an innovative human-machine interaction experience. Less space is consumed by physical buttons, allowing for more storage space.
