BYD organizational structure has the following characteristics:

– Matrix StructureBYD corporate structure is matrix, combining functional departments (e.g., R&D, Sales) with product-based divisions (e.g., Dynasty, Ocean, Commercial Vehicles). This fosters collaboration and flexibility while maintaining focus on specific product lines. The matrix structure enables quick decision-making and adjustments to market dynamics

– Independent Brands. Recent moves towards independent operations for brands like Dynasty and Ocean indicate a strategy to cater to distinct market segments with tailored brand identities and marketing efforts. In other words, independent brands allow for targeted approaches.

– Emphasis in R&D. BYD prioritizes internal R&D, with dedicated institutes for each brand and separate units for core technologies like DM-i hybrids and intelligent driving. This fosters innovation and control over key components.

– Vertical Integration. The EV behemoth vertically integrates key aspects of its supply chain, including battery production and some vehicle components. Such an approach enhances cost control and quality assurance. Vertical integration expands BYD organizational structure.

– Regional Variations. The electric automaker’s structure adjusts to regional needs, with separate sales divisions and local leadership teams managing specific markets. Regular variations approach ensures responsiveness to diverse customer preferences and regulations.
