EV maker BYD has appointed Hedin Mobility Group as a ‘Dealer+’ to distribute and sell passenger cars in Sweden and Germany.

The Dealer+ status assigns official distribution, sales and aftersales services to Hedin in both countries.

Hedin will open outlets in cities in Sweden and Germany starting with Stockholm in October. The first German store will also open in October. Customer websites for each market will launch later this month and information on models available will be announced in September.

First deliveries are scheduled for Q4 2022.

“Partnerships, such as the agreement with Hedin Mobility Group, are the foundation to providing comprehensive services and localised support for BYD customers as the brand continues to evolve its new energy passenger car business in Europe,” the automaker said in a statement.

Hedin will now recruit dealers from various regions in Germany to sell and service the BYD passenger car brand.
