BYD today shared an image on social media and confirmed its first pickup truck BYD Shark. The company has not shared a specific launch date but could raise some competition in the market.

The teaser shows a glimpse of BYD Shark with an outlook similar to Ford F-150 Lighting. The front has a wide LED bar with Headlights.

The Chinese automaker also posted a video of a camouflaged BYD Shark. The clip confirmed four doors and a rear bed. The specs of this pickup truck remain unknown for the moment but it will use DMO technology.

This suggests that the pickup truck would be a hybrid truck instead of a pure electric. However, this will enable the company to play safe in such product category which makes sense.


Dual Mode Off-Road (DMO) is a hybrid platform introduced last year with the BAO lineup. It uses BYD’s Non-Load Bearing Frame Designed for Hybrids with off-road hybrid architecture. The platform is designed with a high-performance chassis, smart electric four-wheel drive, and off-road powertrains.

DMO incorporates a Blade Battery and steel frame, which evolves to Cell to Chassis (CTC) technology. The automaker has enhanced battery safety during increased acceleration and off-roading experience.

BYD has advanced the longitudinal EHS electric hybrid system and off-road rear-drive powertrain alongside a high-performance engine to generate more than 500kW of power and 32,000N of traction.


Its new intelligent torque control technology minimizes the turning radius to 3.4 meters. The drivetrain and electronic control enable efficient navigation through terrains, mountains, slopes, and other off-roading environments. DMO introduces three differential locks, which allow the driver to switch to low-speed gear with a push of a button.

BYD has incorporated a double-wishbone suspension at both ends paired with the DiSus-P Hydraulic Body Control System.
