Max McDee, 14 June 2024

Emerging from BYD's latest sub-brand, Fang Cheng Bao, the all-electric Bao 3 SUV is the latest arrival to the China EV market. As certification papers revealed most of its specs the company shared official images of the model.

The Bao 3 is available in three exterior colors – black, white, and green and we can't help but see some influence from Suzuki Vitara and Toyota Land Cruiser in its design, which is not a bad thing.

This five-seater packs a powerful punch, with dual electric motors delivering a combined maximum power of 310 kW (approximately 416 horsepower). This enables a top speed of 125 mph, making the Bao 3 one of the fastest electric SUVs on the Chinese market. According to the MIIT filing, the Bao 3 can accelerate to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, despite its 4,740 lb curb weight.

The Bao 3 is 181.3 inches long, 74.8 inches wide, and 67.7 inches tall and features a wheelbase of 108.1 inches. That makes it 5.9 inches shorter than the Tesla Model Y, and 8.1 inches longer than the Smart #3.
