At the Auto Expo 2023, BYD’s display space is sectioned into 4 zones, which showcase not only its current and new vehicle products but also technological innovations that substantially enhance the performance and safety of vehicles. These newly-unveiled products and innovation displays echo the Indian-specific theme at the convention: Technological Innovations For A Better Life.

BYD SEAL

BYD Seal is one of BYD’s latest luxury sedans equipped with its renowned EV platform (e-Platform 3.0) and revolutionary ultra-safe Blade Battery. Also, it is the first vehicle equipped with CTB (cell to body) technology, substantially upgrading the vehicle’s safety, stability, and handling, giving the vehicle an overall finer performance.

CTB-supported BYD Seal can withstand the 50-ton heavy-duty truck rolling test. Via the integration of battery and body, the torsional stiffness of the whole vehicle has doubled to above 40,500 N.m/°. The safety of the interior structure of the vehicle is increased by 50% for the front impact and by 45% for the side impact. Also, as CTB technology makes it possible for BYD Seal to have an ideal 50:50 axle load distribution, the vehicle passed the moose test at a record speed of 83.5km/h. With its low-lying design, the aero drag coefficient reached as low as 0.219cd, helping BYD Seal hit 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. The model also has an ultra-long range of up to 700 km on a single charge, reducing the range anxiety of EVs.

BYD ATTO 3 Limited Edition

At the event, the Limited Edition of BYD ATTO 3 in the exclusive color of Forest Green, also adopts the e-Platform 3.0 and the ultra-safe Blade Battery. Only 1,200 units of this Limited Edition will be available in India at Rs. 34.49 lakhs (ex-showroom).

BYD ATTO 3, with an NEDC-certified range of 480 km and ARAI test range of 521 km, was launched in India in November 2022 for Rs. 33.99 lakhs and garnered 1,500 bookings to date, gaining good traction among customers. BYD ATTO 3 received a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, Europe’s leading independent safety assessment program. The E-SUV boasts an 8-year or 1.6 lakh kilometer (whichever comes earlier) warranty for the battery and a similar 8-year or 1.5 lakh kilometer warranty for the motor and motor controller. Besides, BYD offers a 6-year or 1.5 lakh kilometer basic warranty.

Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of Electric Passenger Vehicles of BYD India, said: “The Indian Auto Expo is an extremely significant platform for us, and we are pleased to be able to showcase our products and technologies through our technological innovations for a better life. With the unveiling of the electric luxury sedan BYD Seal, the launch of the Limited Edition of BYD ATTO 3, and the display of the Blade Battery, e-Platform 3.0, we resonate our commitment to contribute to the growth of the Indian electric vehicle segment with EV technologies.”

Within a year, BYD has expanded its network to 24 showrooms across 21 cities in India and will double the presence to 53 showrooms within 2023. “Next year, we plan to sell 15,000 units of BYD ATTO 3 and All-New e6 with a long-term vision to take up 40% of the Indian EV market by 2030. The bookings of BYD ATTO 3 have been encouraging, and we are all set to start the first deliveries from January 2023,” added Mr. Gopalakrishnan.

In 2022, BYD's cumulative sales of passenger vehicles were over 1.86 million units, a year-on-year increase of 155.1%. So far, BYD has sold more than 3.37 million new energy vehicles. With its expanding global presence, BYD is working towards its initiative of “Cool the Earth by 1 °C.”

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
