The BYD F3DM is the world's first mass produced plug-in hybrid compact sedan which went on sale to government agencies and corporations on December 15, 2008 in China, and began sales to the general public in Shenzhen in March 2010.

The company's parent is currently the world's second-largest producer of cellphone batteries. BYD says the car will have a 62 miles (100 km) all-electric range...
