BYD had a bit of a rough time lately. This might cheer them up: According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, a joint design team of BYD and Daimler has finished the styling of an all-electric battery car that will be launched by a BYD/Daimler ( or “Benz” as they call them in China) joint venture.

The WSJ, citing a “knowledgeable individual” says that the rechargeable car will be available to private buyers in China in 2013.

Pictures of the car had been floating around on the Chinese interwebs. The knowledgeable individual described the photos as “authentic,” saying they showed the design of the BYD-Daimler car but that it was not the final one.

Let’s hope so. It looks mighty ugly.
