According to China’s BYD, the e6 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 14 seconds, has a top speed of 100 mph, and has a range of 250 miles on a single charge. Compared to other electric cars from major auto manufacturers, these claims sound exaggerated. However, BYD is backed by billionaire investor Warren Buffett, giving it a bit of street cred. A wagon, the e6 could be among the most practical of EV offerings. But product delays, unproven vehicle quality, and tough economics have raised doubts about BYD’s ability to deliver.
