SAFETY FROM BYD

BYD is committed to providing safety for everyone - that means crash protection not only for drivers and passengers, but also for pedestrians and other road users. We are dedicated to identifying and implementing advanced designs and features that help enhance the safety of vehicles on the road.

3H Body Structure

BYD vehicles adopt the 3H body structure construction which offers the ultimate in safety engineering.
1. Special reinforcement surrounding the passenger compartment helps you from the top and on both sides.
2. Extra steel reinforcements add further strength to critical body areas, improving structural rigidity and help to provide greater impact protection.
3. The unique body structure technology DAE (Distribute & Absorb Energy) fully disperses and absorbs the impact force from the front and sides.

DFWS: Driver Fatigue Warning System

In order to provide complete safety for drivers, a unique technology, the BYD Driver Fatigue Warning System, has been developed. DFWS can detect if the driver is becoming sleepy by monitoring the eyelids and sounds an alert when the driver is too drowsy to continue driving safely. Through a linkup between the ECU and two on-board cameras, the car is able to determine if a driver is fatigued and send out early warnings. The cameras specifically look for signals in the drivers eyes and head movements to make an early warning analysis.

TRPS: Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

For increased safety at high speed some BYD vehicles are equipped with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), the function of which is to alert the driver when a tyre's pressure reaches a significantly low level. The system is sensitive, accurate and reliable.

Bosch ABS+EBD

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) The ABS uses the highest quality four-channel, four-sensor system so that all wheels can be controlled independently. ABS,not only improves steering during emergency braking, but is specially designed for off-road situations, shortening the braking distance on loose ground, such as sand, gravel or grass, by up to 20%.
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) EBD automatically adjusts the amount of braking force applied to front and rear brakes based on the vehicles load and road conditions.

Keyless Intelligent Anti-theft System

The intelligent anti-theft system features the world's leading anti-theft technologies like rolling code encryption security, power steering shaft lock, and abnormal or illegal entrance alarm. The anti-theft system uses the top chipset technology, with the securer encryption algorithms, implementing mutual authentication of I-key and your car. Each smart-key is unique, including its ID password.
