Real Range Estimation between 110 - 235 mi

City - Cold Weather * 160 mi
Highway - Cold Weather * 110 mi
Combined - Cold Weather * 135 mi
City - Mild Weather * 235 mi
Highway - Mild Weather * 140 mi
Combined - Mild Weather * 180 mi
Indication of real-world range in several situations. Cold weather: 'worst-case' based on -10°C and use of heating. Mild weather: 'best-case' based on 23°C and no use of A/C. For 'Highway' figures a constant speed of 70 mph is assumed. The actual range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather and route conditions.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the BYD DOLPHIN 44.9 kWh Active. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Europe

Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the BYD DOLPHIN 44.9 kWh Active can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 23 hours 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 14h30m 11 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 7h15m 22 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 14h30m 11 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW † 7h15m 22 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the BYD DOLPHIN 44.9 kWh Active.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

Europe

Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 40 kW † 50 min 130 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 60 kW † 50 kW † 40 min 160 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 60 kW † 50 kW † 40 min 160 mph
This vehicle supports Autocharge
This vehicle does not support Plug & Charge

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Autocharge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations.

Plug & Charge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations in accordance with ISO 15118.

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
