“It really is quite extraordinary how a brand you’ve probably never heard of – albeit one that sells millions of cars in its home market – can so drastically undercut the competition and still offer such a compelling package. The BYD DOLPHIN isn’t a cheap car, it’s a great-value car. There’s a difference.”
