Electric Car Of The Year –  BYD Dolphin Extended Range

Our no.1 choice for overall Electric Car Of The Year goes to the BYD Dolphin Extended Range.

The point of the electric car is to cut down fossil fuel use in the transportation sector and one of the biggest hurdles remains the cost of production of these vehicles. Even with very generous tax policies around electric vehicles, there are none that are considered affordable… One that comes pretty close to affordability is the BYD Dolphin and we feel this model has had the largest overall impact thanks to its pricing and specification.

BYD Dolphin

Not only does the BYD Dolphin deliver excellent value for money, it does so without feeling a cut-cost product at all. Yes, you’re still paying over RM100,000 for the Dolphin, but the fit and finish and equipment level feels better than some ICE cars costing around the same amount of money. Plus, with the Extended Range trim, you get more than enough range.

Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.
