BYD Reveals First Official Photos of YangWang U7 Flagship Sedan

Chinese EV behemoth BYD launched the YangWang high-end NEV brand in early 2023. The premium brand currently has two vehicles in its product portfolio, the U8 EREV off-roader, and the U9 electric sports car that applied for a sales license in China in December 2023 & is yet to go on sale.

Now BYD has revealed the first official photos of its latest offering, the U7 flagship sedan which is expected to see its formal unveiling later this year. Not many details about the car have been disclosed by the manufacturer thus far. Still, as far as the images are concerned we can see that the U7 sedan will get a similar fascia as the U9 electric sports car featuring what they call “carving forks’ styled LED headlamps.
