The new BYD Dolphin Electric Car Lease - Your Definitive Guide
This week (February 2024) has been a busy one with the UK’s news and media outlets covering a mix of headlines and statements about electric cars - some great and others more concerning.

Indeed, we are seeing more pricing parity between combustion vehicles and battery ones, without taking into account the running costs and whole of life costs. Very much a part of this is the BYD brand, or Build Your Dreams, which arrived into the UK in 2023.
Worldwide the BYD Auto group have been performing robustly, with over 3 million sold last year. This actually allowed the BYD group to surpass Tesla as the largest plug-in manufacturer worldwide. But while much of this is down to the Chinese and East Asian markets, the group are now pushing into the UK’s electric vehicle market with a series of options including:
