DETROIT -- This year at the 2009 North American International Auto Show, BYD, Build Your Dreams, an auto company from China, debuted the F6DM; a dual-mode electric vehicle.

Showing off a champagne, four-door DM car, BYD fused electricity and gasoline powered engines. The F6DM is one of the first vehicles that BYD is using with the dual-mode concept. The dual-mode concept is the power for a vehicle to operate with a battery and engine. Having a car that is powered with a DM engine allows the driver to use electricity in short distances and gasoline for long ranges.

Wang Chuanfu, chairman of BYD Holding., Ltd, and BYD Automobile said the car can automatically convert to a hybrid when the battery is depleted and the car can be refueled at any gas station.

According to Chuanfu this is a better solution than an all electric car for drivers because when the vehicle runs out of electricity it will be able to run on gasoline.

Since the F6DM is a cross between a hybrid and an electric automobile, it can become a mainstream vehicle. Although the car is not available for purchase it is estimated to retail around $22,000 and won’t be available in the U.S. until 2010.
