On September 8, BYD unveiled concept car Ocean-X, which is developed based on e-platform 3.0. Positioned as a mid-size sporty sedan with high performance, it adopts the design of fully integrated blade batteries in the car body, featuring an 8-in-1 electric powertrain, and an all-wheel-drive architecture.
BYD e-platform 3.0 is a dedicated BEV platform, featuring intelligence, efficiency, safety, and aesthetics, aiming to address the pain points of user experience, such as safety and low-temperature driving range. The e-platform 3.0 covers vehicles of various sizes and will remain open to the industry.
The e-platform 3.0 integrates the traditional distributed electric electronic architecture into a domain control architecture which is comprised of four domains: smart power domain controller, smart body domain controller, smart cockpit domain controller, and smart driving domain controller. In this way, system interaction efficiency has been improved. This platform deeply integrates the driving, braking, steering and other functions of the vehicle, making full use of the quick response of the motor, managing to develop the industry’s first drive train domain controller which has been applied on EA1, a model currently available on the market. BYD’s smart cockpit domain controller and smart body domain controller are already in mass production. As for software, BYD has independently developed the BYD OS, an automotive operating system.
In terms of efficiency, the e-platform 3.0 applies numerous technologies. Through its 8-in-1 electric powertrain, a vehicle can run for over a range over 1,000km. Its fast-charging technology enables a range of up to 150km after a 5-minute charge. The direct cooling and heating system for batteries can increase the thermal efficiency by up to 20% while reducing energy consumption. The heat pump system, able to work at temperatures from -30℃ to 60℃, can increase the range by up to 20% in winter. Thanks to the brand-new electric AWD system, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds. As a result, the users can enjoy the high performance of AWD EVs while consuming the energy of 2WD vehicles.
In terms of safety, an e-platform 3.0 vehicle incorporates blade batteries as a structural part into its integrated body design, strengthening the torsional rigidity of its body.
On the aesthetics side, the vehicle features shorter overhangs and a longer wheelbase, which expands the passenger space. Owing to a lower center of gravity and a longer wheelbase, the drag coefficient of the vehicle is reduced to 0.21Cd.
