The first generation BYD Song started out as the BYD S3 before BYD launched the "Dynasty" series vehicles. The Song was later launched as a minor facelift, and later a second facelift updating the BYD Song with the new "Dragon face" design language.

BYD S3[edit]

The BYD S3 is a compact crossover debuted on the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show in April 2015. It was positioned below the mid-size BYD S6 crossover, and is BYD's first entry to the compact crossover market. Initial plans were similar to the petrol powered BYD F3 compact sedan and BYD S6 mid-size crossover which spawned the BYD Qin and BYD Tang hybrid variants using the Chinese dynasty naming system. However, later the BYD S3 was named simply the BYD Song for all variants including the ICE engined version, plug-in hybrid version, and electric versions.[1]

BYD Song[edit]

In April 2015, the BYD Song debuted at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show.[2] In October 2015, the BYD Song was launched. Two powertrains was offered at launch. A 1.5 litre turbo-charged petrol engine capable of producing 154 hp (115 kW; 156 PS) and 240 N⋅m (177 lb⋅ft) of torque and a 2.0 litre turbo-charged petrol engine capable of producing 205 hp (153 kW; 208 PS) and 320 N⋅m (236 lb⋅ft) of torque. The 1.5 litre engine could be had with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic gearbox while the 2.0 litre engine could only be had with a 6-speed DCT gearbox. [3][4]Originally called the BYD S3, BYD later changed the name of the crossover to simply Song. Early models with S3 badging has black graphic details on the front bumpers and regular BYD badge instead of the single body color and Dynasty-badging Song.

2018 Song facelift[edit]

A facelift was launched in 2018 featuring the new BYD dragon face and connected tail lamps. Despite being marketed as a "brand new generation", the 2018 model shares the same body as the previous models.

Song DM (Dual-mode)[edit]

Just like the F3DM compact car and F6DM prototype, BYD launched the Song DM PHEV in April 2017. The Song DM is nearly identical to the regular Song apart from the badging. Song DM could work under both the HEV and EV modes with the 1.5T engine and a dual motors and delivers a range up to 80 km. The plug-in outputs up to 333 kW (453 PS; 447 hp) and a torque of 740 N⋅m (546 lb⋅ft) in HEV mode and manages 0-100km/h in 4.9sec. Fuel efficiency is 1.4L/100km. [5]

Song EV300 and EV400[edit]

The Song EV300 and the Song EV400 are both electric versions of the BYD Song based on the regular petrol-powered BYD Song, and both uses the 218 hp (163 kW) and 310 N⋅m (229 lb⋅ft) electric motors. The Song EV300 has a NEDC range of 270 kilometers and a 60 km/h (37 mph) range of 300 kilometers running on a 48 kWh battery pack while the Song EV400 runs on 62 kWh ones.
