(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

Sales of Berkshire Hathaway-backed BYD’s joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, the D9 premium MPV, started deliveries Sunday, and sales are already going through the roof. Presales racked up 30,000 orders for the multipurpose vehicle that they market under the upscale Denza brand.

Engineered and produced in and for the China market, the DENZA brand combines Daimler’s vehicle architecture expertise with BYD’s leading battery technology.

The D9 is offered as both a plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicle, and the EV boasts a 500KM range.
