Since opening in 1995, BYD has built its company reputation around innovation and technology leadership – this is manifest in their patent generation rates. To date, BYD has amassed more than 12,000 domestic patents and more than 8,000 international patents in areas such as environmentally-friendly, fire-safe Iron Phosphate chemistries and advance electric vehicle drive and energy recovery systems. A large part of this success can be attributed to the fact that BYD employs more than 15,000 staff engineers around the world significantly more than its competition. Another of BYD’s priorities since inception has been to keep a keen focus on being a voice for Intellectual Property protection and best practices globally. In 2013, BYD was awarded the World Intellectual Patent Organizations’ (WIPO) “Outstanding Patent Innovation and Industrial Design” medal. BYD’s patent for Electric Vehicle Batteries also received also the China Patent Association’s Award of Excellence.

About BYD

BYD is a publicly-traded company with no Chinese government ownership. In fact, U.S. investors own over 60% of the public stock, with Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway owning 9.9% of that amount. Mr. Buffett and his colleagues recognize BYD's breakthrough battery and EV technologies: an electrified, 24-hour, and long-range battery that provides emission-free, silent, and economic public and private transportation.

As the world's largest manufacturer of rechargeable batteries, BYD's mission is to create safer and more environmentally-friendly battery technologies, and this has produced the BYD Iron Phosphate Battery. This fire-safe, completely recyclable, and incredibly long-cycle technology has become the foundation of BYD's clean energy platforms.
