Oops… they did it again. BYD’s authorised car dealer, Vantage Automotive Limited, travel agent, Chan Brothers and EightX Lifestyle Group, are on a charm offensive to enhance the BYD brand experience in Singapore.

If you have been keeping up with the automotive scene, you may remember BYD’s earlier collaboration with EightX Lifestyle Group, when they opened their first concept, BYD by 1826 | Boat Quay, earlier in June this year. 

The new 2,200 square-foot BYD by 1826 | Suntec concept restaurant combines a showroom, which is capable of displaying up to four vehicles, alongside a casual dining experience. Patrons here at the Suntec City outlet, can opt to take a test drive of BYD cars around Singapore’s downtown district.

“BYD by 1826 is thrilled to announce our collaboration with top-tier industry leaders to create an innovative automotive lifestyle ecosystem. This synergistic alliance amalgamates the exclusive features of BYD cars, the adventure of travel experiences offered by Chan Brothers, the dynamism of VAL’s automotive car sales, and the distinctive lifestyle curation by 1826.

By integrating these services, we are committed to establishing a new benchmark in our consumers’ lifestyle, offering an unrivalled experience unlike anything seen before.” Davin Ongsono, CEO, 1826 Group.

Mr. Anthony Teo, Managing Director of Vantage Automotive adds, “The launch of this new car showroom- and-café concept in one of the biggest retail malls in Singapore is a testament to our commitment to offer innovative solutions for drivers eager to embrace green mobility in Singapore.

Together, we are making it easier and more accessible than ever for Singaporean drivers to experience BYD’s electrifying fleet of electric cars and learn about their industry-leading technology.”

Along with the opening of the Suntec City concept restaurant, other BYD lifestyle centres, all branded as BYD by 1826, have also been opened to increase the automotive company’s touchpoints. These are, BYD by DXD | Tanjong Pagar, BYD by SevenDaze | Balestier, and BYD by Mr. Seven | Hillview; with each location offering a BYD vehicle for test driving purposes.

In addition to further bolstering the BYD lifestyle experience, a new partnership with Chan Brothers Travel Pte Ltd, has also been inked. They now offer specially tailored tour packages, with BYD-themed travel experiences, both locally and abroad.

Mr. Anthony Chan, CEO of Chan Brothers comments, “Embarking on a journey where innovation meets travel, Chan Brothers, Singapore’s premier travel agency, is delighted to partner with BYD, Vantage Automotive and BYD by 1826, to pioneer Singapore’s first automotive lifestyle ecosystem.

Together, we are driving towards a future where every journey is not just about the destination but also an unrivalled experience centred around the consumer.”

To help converge BYD’s curated lifestyle experiences, BYD Singapore also announced plans for a new mobile app, to present customers with the latest news, offers and special partnerships.

“This unique venture reflects BYD’s unwavering commitment to shaping a greener and more sustainable future for Singapore. With BYD Suntec, we aim to redefine the automotive experience by combining cutting-edge technology, delightful dining, and environmental consciousness, all under one roof. In a market where trends are so volatile, lifestyle labels are enticing consumers with a space to hang-out. By introducing all-new concept showrooms, integrated restaurants, travel options and innovative app development, BYD’s top priority is to elevate our customers’ experience,” adds Mr James Ng, Managing Director of BYD Singapore.

The current BYD car offerings include the e6 MPV, the ATTO 3 SUV and the recently-launched Dolphin hatchback. The Seal sedan, which is in the pipeline, is slated to arrive within the first week of September.

BYD by 1826 | Suntec is located at Suntec City Tower 1, #01-463.
