Chinese EV giant, BYD, seems to be serious about bringing the E-SEED electric supercar concept to production next year.
A Redditor going by the handle u/Peugeot905 recently posted a pair of highly suggestive images that would seem to imply that work on the E-SEED supercar hasn’t stopped during the pandemic. They show a low, wide, and aggressively styled sporty coupe parked next to a BYD Qin (for scale, a banana was unavailable).
First shown at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, the E-SEED GT concept car, “represents the pinnacle of BYD’s design, by fusing the expertise of the three international design experts, Wolfgang Egger, BYD Global Design Director, JuanMa Lopez, BYD Global Exterior Design Director and Michele Jauch-Paganetti, BYD Global Interior Design Director,” according to the official release. “The concept car uses the ‘Dragon Face’ design language, successfully applying the elements of a Chinese dragon into a super car design, such as headlights resembling ‘dragon whiskers,’ a “dragon ridge’ on its roof, tail and seats and ‘dragon-scale’ features on its door panels. It also boasts a three-screen inter connection, a retractable steering wheel plus a ‘BYD heart’ and other technologies.”
