Berkshire Hathaway-backed BYD has launched its latest technological breakthrough, the BYD DiSus Intelligent Body Control System. This full-stack, self-developed system is designed exclusively for NEVs and represents a significant milestone for BYD, as it becomes the first Chinese automobile manufacturer to own intelligent vehicle body control technology throughout.
The BYD DiSus System is a systematic solution for vehicle body control, offering collaborative control in body dynamics, including lateral, longitudinal, and vertical motions. This comprehensive system of perception, decision-making, and execution significantly improves the driving experience, ensuring the vehicle is agile and effectively compatible in most driving scenarios.
Safety is a top priority for BYD, and the DiSus System minimizes the risk of vehicle rollover and reduces the displacement of occupants during high-speed cornering, full-throttle acceleration, or emergency braking. It also protects the vehicle from scratches and damages under various road conditions.
At the launch event, BYD showcased the DiSus-X, equipped in the Yangwang U9, which can dance, jump, and drive with only three wheels. The DiSus System is available in several models under the BYD Dynasty series, BYD Ocean series, DENZA, Yangwang, and the new brand launching this summer that specializes in professional and personalized identities.
As a global leader in NEVs, BYD is committed to driving technological advancements with a “technology-based, innovation-oriented” mindset and approach. The company’s aspiration is to take the development of Chinese NEVs to the next level globally and provide technological innovations for a better life.
Founded in 1995 as a rechargeable battery maker, BYD has diversified its business scope, covering automobiles, rail transit, new energy, and electronics. With over 30 industrial parks in China, the United States, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Hungary, and India, BYD is dedicated to providing zero-emission energy solutions that reduce global reliance on fossil fuels. Its new energy vehicle footprint covers six continents, over 70 countries and regions, and more than 400 cities.
BYD Auto, the automotive subsidiary of BYD, is focused on developing pure electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, aiming to accelerate the green transition of the global transportation sector. The company has mastered the core technologies of the entire industrial chain of new energy vehicles, including batteries, electric motors, electronic controllers, and automotive-grade semiconductors. BYD Auto is the world’s first carmaker to stop the production of fossil-fueled vehicles on EV shift and has remained the top new energy passenger vehicle sales in China for nine years in a row.
