From the Qin Champion Edition that broke the 100,000 RMB price barrier to the cost-performance king in the mid-to-large car market, the Han Champion Edition, BYD has now introduced the Champion Edition to the best-selling SUV, the Yuan PLUS. Since its launch in September and subsequent nationwide release, the Yuan PLUS Champion Edition has further enhanced its overall product competitiveness. Now, let’s take a closer look at the upgrades and improvements made to the Yuan PLUS Champion Edition.
