During the Fang Cheng Bao Spring Conference, the company revealed three new hard-core EVs: two SUVs, Bao 3 and Bao 8, and a convertible Super 9 concept. The Super 9 was created by BYD’s Head of Design, Wolfgang Eggert, an ex-Lamborghini and Audi veteran.

Fang Cheng Bao is a high-end brand under BYD that focuses on electric SUVs. It has one car on the market – Bao 5 (Leopard 5), and it has previously teased two other SUVs, Bao 3 and Bao 8. The unveiling of the convertible sports car Super 9 is a quiet and easter egg.

The Fang Cheng Bao Super 9 concept is a good-looking two-seater with scissor doors. It is expected to be a battery electric vehicle (BEV), not PHEV like Bao 5 (Super 5). The production version will most likely be called Bao 9.

The car features a dual cockpit and integrated carbon fiber seats. The steering wheel looks more like something from a spacecraft.

The Super 9’s rear features dual tail lights shaped like the Fang Cheng Bao logo and a bridge-like rear spoiler. On the side of the car, you can notice the number 30, which points out the BYD company’s 30th anniversary.

Fang Cheng Bao is BYD’s third and latest brand, launched last summer. It is positioned under premium YangWang and above the Denza subbrands. BYD took a different sales approach with its subbrands, replacing the traditional dealership model with direct-operated stores. BYD built 70 Fang Cheng Bao stores around China in 2023 and wants to bring that number to 150 in 2024. The Shenzhen-based company often takes over stores and showrooms of premium legacy brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Aston Martin.
