BYD’s 1st Pickup SHARK Pickup to be Released Overseas in Mexico


According to official sources, BYD‘s new pickup truck, the SHARK, will be officially released in Mexico on May 14 local time. The vehicle is based on the DMO platform and is also BYD’s first new energy pickup truck.

The overall shape of the front of the car is relatively square, with a large BYD logo that looks very imposing. The headlights are rectangular in design, and according to previous teaser images, the new car will be equipped with a bar-type LED light strip. The bottom of the front end is equipped with a silver off-road style bumper, further highlighting its tough appearance.

The new car is equipped with two-tone rims and large-profile tires, which, together with the high ground clearance, are expected to provide good off-road capability. The rear end adopts a bar-type taillight, and the lights on both sides are rectangular in design, which echoes the front end with the large BYD lettering. In addition, the car is also equipped with side steps, roof rails, and a roof rack.

The new car is equipped with a LCD instrument panel and a large central control screen, and the four-spoke steering wheel has a unique design. The overall interior is in black, with a small amount of orange accents adding a youthful and sporty touch. In addition, we can see that a series of levers/buttons are equipped behind the gearshift lever, giving it a mechanical feel of a hardcore off-road vehicle.

The BYD SHARK pickup is expected to offer two powertrain options: a plug-in hybrid and a pure electric version. The new car is based on the DMO platform, which is a hybrid off-road platform with electric drive as the main power source. According to previous reports, the platform is compatible with 1.5T and 2.0T engines of different displacements, and also supports 6kW external discharge, 20kW in-place charging, and V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) charging rescue functions. In addition, the new car is expected to be equipped with a hydraulic active suspension system and a streaming rearview mirror.
