The BYD F3DM PHEV sedan based on the BYD F3 sedan was the first mass-market Plug-in EV of recent time. The F3DM’s commercial release first introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 2008, was scheduled for December 2009 on a lease only basis in China to Government agencies. The vehicle entered its first overseas markets, the USA in 2010 on a test basis, and later Spain in 2011. The F3DM was assembled at the Xi’an plant in Shaanxi China. The DM stands for the Dual Model platform used by BYD for its Plug-In Hybrid vehicles, providing the vehicle two drive modes, HV and EV. The F3DM was not a commercial success as sales did not live up to expectations, mostly due to a lack of charging infrastructure. BYD discontinued the F3DM in 2013 and replaced it with the BYD Qin and a pure electric version, the Qin EV300 in 2016.
