BYD, which stands for Build Your Dream is a Shenzhen-based car company.

The Chinese company, CATL, just became BMW’s official battery supplier.

    If my next car is electric, it will be a Tesla. I've seen this thing smoke Hellcats like they're standing still. However, I'll design, build and install a generator to recharge the car while driving it. For unless you haven't noticed, the whole charging thing is no different that what the gasoline industry has done for years, and here you all are taking it up the tail pipe again…
