Chinese carmaker BYD is working on an all-electric ute that could end up being built in Australia.

The company recently announced plans to introduce its new electric sedan and SUV models onto the Australian market in 2022, which will be distributed by local importer, Nexport.

Nexport is the same company that previously announced plans to build a $700 million 51-hectare factory in Moss Vale, NSW, to assemble BYD buses and eventually cars.
