The U8 Premium Edition packs a whopping 1,200 horsepower, it can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. The precise torque vectoring on each wheel ensures stability even during a tire blowout, pushing the boundaries of active automotive safety.
The BYD DiSus Intelligent Body Control System is another proprietary breakthrough, enhancing vehicle agility and compatibility in various driving scenarios. It reduces the risk of rollovers, minimizes occupant displacement during high-speed cornering, acceleration, or braking, and protects the vehicle from damage under challenging road conditions.
An Unprecedented Premium Off-roader for the Discerning Driver
The U8 Premium Edition supports fast DC charging at rates of up to 110 kW, allowing a charge from 30% to 80% in just 18 minutes. In extreme conditions, such as flash floods or off-road water obstacles, the U8 Premium Edition can remain afloat for up to 30 minutes, maintaining stability and control for swift evasion.* Its 6 kW vehicle-to-load (VTL) discharge capability can power electronic devices and high-power equipment for up to 25 hours. The Yangwang U8 Premium Edition integrates 38 high-precision components and the robust NVIDIA DRIVE Orin intelligent driving processor, with a computational capability of up to 508 TOPS. The Yangwang U8 Premium Edition is equipped with Blade Batteries and supplemented with Cell-to-Chassis (CTC) technology, ensuring comprehensive travel safety.
Inside, the U8 Premium Edition's symmetrical, dual-layered cockpit features a 12.8-inch OLED Galaxy Curved Center Display, dual 23.6-inch longitudinal screens for the driver and front passenger, and high-end Nappa leather seats combined with Sapele wood from Africa. With three wireless charging spots, compatible with 50 kW fast charging, passengers can enjoy quick and convenient charging. It also boasts the Dynaudio Evidence Series high-end audio system with 22 speakers, offering an immersive auditory experience.
