What’s missing from the BYD?

In order to save weight on next year’s most controversial new car, the Chinese manufacturer has not included any of the following:

  • an engine
  • a fuel tank
  • an exhaust system
  • a fuel system
  • an anvil

However they did add a couple of things, such as some batteries made by the world’s top battery maker, an array of computer-controlled electric motors, and a plug.

Also missing will be emissions, a need to buy fuel, and a lot of guilt. Today in Los Angeles, BYD is looking for a partnership to manufacture it’s long-range zero-emissions cars in California, and the State of California is eager to go up against Detroit with it’s Chinese venture partner. Perhaps by year’s end we’ll hear almost nothing as Californians silently zip around town in cars without engines.
