China's BYD F6DM electric/gas car...

EMail from Conrad:

Chinese Car Company, BYD, to sell Electric and Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles to Israel in 2009

BYD has announced it is planning to sell Israel two hybrid cars, the BYD F6DM and the F3DM, and an electric car, the BYD E6. The BYD F6DM should have a top speed of 100 mph, 62 miles just on battery, and 267 miles when the gas engines kicks in. The lithium ion phosphate battery is impressive with a life of 2,000 cycles and a life time range of 373,000 miles.

BYD is claiming their car has a greater range and will be sold before GM's Volt plug-in hybrid. BYD is selling to Israel, a country that wants to be energy independent in 10 years.
