BYD e2: Australia’s cheapest electric car will arrive this year, priced “well below $35,000"

The upcoming BYD e2 electric hatchback – set to be unveiled at this week's Shanghai motor show – will cost "well below $35,000" in Australia, according to a spokesperson for the local importer Nexport. This should comfortably make it the nation’s cheapest electric car by some margin, when it comes onto the local market later this year. For reference, the MG ZS EV – which is also built in China – currently holds that distinction with a sticker price of $43,990 drive-away.
