Remember when you were younger and played with remote control cars? Well Chinese auto-maker BYD has brought that technology to a real world car you can drive. BYD has released a new car model in China called Su Rui that can be driven by a remote control. The BYD Su Rui is a family sedan that can seat five adults comfortably and comes with a remote control that allows the driver to get out of the car and drive it.
The BYD Su Rui goes 0-62 mph in 8.9 seconds, but it’s limited to 1.2 mph when controlling the car with the remote. The Su Rui’s remote is able to start and stop the car, drive it backwards and forwards, and turn on the air conditioner so the interior can be cooled or preheated before you even get in. BYD says the remote control technology is perfect for bringing the car to you during bad weather, or to park in a tight spot.
The BYD Su Rui comes with either a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 109 hp and features a five-speed manual transmission, or a 1.5-liter turbo four cylinder producing 154 hp with a six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), which comes with the remote control tech standard. The Su Rui also come with a Bosch 9th generation Electronic Stability Program (ESP), tire pressure monitoring system, electric park brake system, front right wheel blind spot visibility system, color reversing video surveillance system, remote control power windows, 13 types of intelligent voice reminder and 5.1 channel, 10 speaker sound system with independent power amplifier and in-car cinema.
