It is reported that on January 22, 2022, a blogger posted on Weibo claiming that a BYD vehicle caught on fire and burned a nearby Tesla, which caused widespread public attention. However, in reality, the blogger did not verify the relevant information before publishing these contents, and the vehicle that caught fire in this incident was not a product of BYD. Currently, the blogger stated: “The false and untrue news I posted misled the readers and caused damage to the reputation and business of BYD. As a Weibo big V, I apologize to BYD for my irresponsible remarks, and also sincerely apologize to the public and society who are concerned about this incident. At the same time, I also call on everyone not to spread rumors and create a civilized, harmonious, healthy and upward network environment.”

At the same time, BYD also stated: “The internet has no boundaries, but words and actions have limits. The internet is not a lawless place, and the cloak of a network account will not become an excuse for spreading rumors. We sincerely call on friends on the internet not to spread rumors and work together to build a civilized, harmonious, healthy and upward network environment.”

The relevant blogger apologized

It is worth mentioning that on May 31st, BYD just launched the 2023 version of the Yuan Pro. Currently, this model offers three different versions: the 320KM luxury version, the 401KM luxury version, and the 401KM premium version, with prices of RMB 95,800, RMB 105,800, and RMB 113,800, respectively.
