New YangWang U9 interior pictures revealed in China

In the countdown to the February 25 launch of the new YangWang U9 supercar from BYD more pictures of the interior have emerged on Weibo – China’s Twitter (or should that be X?) equivalent.

What’s also noteworthy about the post is the comment which translates as “The price is over one million, this central control screen and the front screen of the passenger look really cheap! How many units do you think it can sell per month?” The replies to the post are generally equally quite negative.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the interior.

The U9 is the second model in BYD’s high end YangWang brand following on from the U8 hard-core SUV. A third model, the U7 sedan, will likely launch later this year and is set to be the most aerodynamic production car in the world.

Strangely seeing as both BYD is based in Shenzhen and the U9 will be built in a factory there, the company has chosen Shanghai as the location of the launch on February 25. The price should be announced at the event but it currently expected to be north of a million yuan.

YangWang is BYD most technologically advanced brand of cars and the U9 will feature the DiSus-X suspension system. Details about it are currently thin on the ground but we know that it should outperform all other versions of Disus and it is what enables the car to drive on three wheels and of course it helps with those all important dance moves.

Each wheel gains a 240 kW electric motor for total output of 960 kW (1,287 hp). This is an all out supercar and so the top speed is capped at a much higher level than most EVs at 300 km/h. Acceleration is reportedly under two seconds.

The U9’s dimensions are 4966/2029/1295 mm, and its wheelbase is 2900 mm. Weight comes in at a fairly hefty 2,475 kg. Power of course still comes from BYD’s Blade battery.

That carbon fiber spoiler on the back is actually an optional extra. Also according to the U9 launch poster the car is actually also known as the Ultimat9.

Editor’s note:

While the interior of the car seems very stereotypical of a supercar it also just looks like one from an ICE with a couple of extra screens. Nothing really seems to give the U9 its own identity. At least with say the HiPhi Z it has a dancing screen but then again the whole U9 can dance!
