Chinese automakers are notorious for copying popular car brands. Sometimes they copies the design of cars in the name of inspiration and presents them with slight modifications and other times in the name of someone else. But if we talk about the inspiration of Chinese companies, then it is such that they make clones of popular cars ready. Once again these companies have done something similar and introduced the famous SUV Ford Ecosport by making it an electric car.

A car manufacturer named BYD in China has introduced a clone of Ford EcoSport and named it Yuan Pro EV. This all-electric compact SUV looks completely like the EcoSport, the popular SUV from Ford. Even if this car is seen from the side, it is difficult to differentiate between the two.

Yuan Pro EV Design and Features

This electric SUV has been designed for the mid-segment customers. The company has designed the Yuan Pro EV on the lines of the “Dragon Face 3.0” design language. However, seeing this, you will not be able to stop saying that it is a Ford EcoSport. Apart from some minor cosmetic changes, this SUV is completely EcoSport like. Even the position of the spare wheel mounted on the boot door at the back seems to be inspired by the EcoSport.

However, the front design of the car is different and the electric vehicle differentiates itself with sleeker headlamps with closed off grille, tail lamps and smooth character lines. The company has presented it as an affordable car, but the Yuan Pro is not an affordable car in terms of its interiors. 

Talking about its interiors, it is quite different from the EcoSport. It has a 10.1-inch infotainment screen and 8-inch digital instrument panel. It also gets light colors for the upholstery, which gives it an upmarket feel. Apart from this, the multifunction flat-bottom steering wheel has been given in Yuan Pro. With this, if we talk about safety features, then its top-spec trims have been given safety features like ABD, EBD, EBA, TCS, ESP, etc.

Yuan Pro EV battery pack and power

The company has introduced three variants of Yuan Pro EV, in which the base variant is being offered with 38.9kWh battery, which can give a range of 301 km. Talking about the other two variants, it has a bigger battery of 50.1 kWh which provides a range of 401 km. This car is equipped with an electric motor that generates power of 136hp and peak torque of 210Nm.

Let us tell you that the BYD Yuan Pro sold in China is 4.37 meters longer than the sub-four-meter Ford EcoSport sold in India. The starting price of Yuvan Pro is 79,800 Yuan (approximately Rs 9.17 lakh) which goes up to 99,800 Yuan (approximately Rs 11.47 lakh).
