BYD Reveals Yangwang Brand Logo

BYD’s new premium sub-brand, Yangwang has officially unveiled its brand logo, that is inspired by the ancient Chinese inscription for “Electricity”.

The brand logo is inspired by the Chinese oracle-bone inscription for “电” roughly interpreted as electricity or power. According to the company, the zigzag shape is the original Chinese character for “electricity” and represents the technology and product line for new energy vehicles (NEVs).

Yangwang was announced by BYD in November, and according to the automaker, the high-end brand is expected to manufacture vehicles within the 800,000 yuan to 1.5 million yuan ($110,280 – $206,763) price range. BYD says the name Yangwang, which translates into “looking up” is not only a posture that reflects human beings’ instinct to be curious and thirsty for knowledge, but also embodies the spirits of courage, fearlessness, and exploration.
