Hedin Mobility Group becomes Dealer+ partner of BYD in Sweden and Germany
It is through world leading technology and expertise in battery development, that has been pivotal to BYD's growth in the global NEV market. BYD's commitment and vision for sustainable e-Mobility solutions has been a key influencer in product development over the last two decades, which is inspiring the industry and driving increased demand from customers in Europe and around the world. The range of BYD new energy passenger cars feature advanced technology from BYD developed for uncompromising safety and performance, while embracing sustainability in many aspects of design.
BYD was also the first NEV manufacturer globally to stop production of ICE vehicles in order to focus solely on more environmentally friendly BEVs (battery electric vehicles) and PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles).
BYD committed to collaboration with local partners to accelerate eMobility
The diverse BYD product range, together with its technical expertise and collaborative approach to business development, has been instrumental in many localised strategic partnerships to globally empower green solutions in transportation. BYD is committed to local partnerships to create win-win cooperations, gaining trust and sharing mutual knowledge to benefit all involved, in pursuit of its 'green dream'. This philosophy has led to the formation of numerous cooperations with respected dealer partners in many different countries for BYD passenger cars. Partnerships, such as the agreement with Hedin Mobility Group, are the foundation to providing comprehensive services and localised support for BYD customers as the brand continues to evolve its new energy passenger car business in Europe.
BYD, working together with Hedin Mobility Group, will now actively embark on selecting top dealers from different regions in Germany to represent the BYD passenger car brand. Hedin Mobility Group is one of Europe's largest privately owned dealership groups, operating over 230 dealerships in eight countries, including Germany, with a significant dealership footprint across Scandinavia. It sold more than 125,000 vehicles in 2021. Hedin Mobility Group will sell BYD's vehicles in Sweden through its dealership group Hedin Bil and via the specially selected dealerships in Germany.
Michael Shu, General Manager and Managing Director, BYD Europe and International Cooperation Division, said: "We are delighted to provide world-leading technologies within our inspirational range of new energy passenger vehicles to the German and Swedish public. We believe the timing is perfect to meet consumer demand for more eco-friendly solutions. Our partnership with the well-respected Hedin Mobility Group has exciting potential in Sweden and Germany, and will support the entire customer experience at every phase. Together, we look forward to developing a sustainable transport future in both countries."
