And it will stop producing internal combustion engines by 2040.
Agency Reuters reported that China’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer BYD last month released its latest vehicles equipped with only internal combustion engines. From now on, all vehicles of this brand will be either rechargeable hybrids or battery electric vehicles.

For a company that, following the example of a number of Western competitors, promised to completely curtail the production of cars with internal combustion engines by 2040, this step looks logical, although somewhat premature in the eyes of the layman. In effect, BYD will continue to supply parts and warranties for ICE-only vehicles, but will equip all new batches of vehicles with some combination of traction motors. For hybrids, the production of specialized internal combustion engines will continue, which will play the role of a “safety” power plant, since a number of consumers can be content with the power reserve provided by on-board traction batteries, which can be charged from the mains.
