Henry Li, BYD, at the 2010 Geneva motor show

80th International Motor Show, 2010 Geneva, Switzerland – Henry Li, General Manager for Auto Exports for BYD sat down with me at the 2010 Geneva motor show.

Li talks about the memorandum of understanding (MOU) that was recently signed by Mercedes-Benz. What type of car is it, where will it be produced and sold?

We also talked about the driving range of the battery and whether BYD held all the global patents for the battery they would be using in the cars they were bringing to the United States.
