BYD ATTO 3 debuts in India!
Chinese car manufacturer BYD has launched their first private vehicle offering in the country
BYD has launched their first product that is targeted at the private buyer and it is an upmarket SUV that has been christened as the ATTO 3. This new electric vehicle is built on the company’s e-Platform 3.0, which is designed for the next generation of pure electric vehicles that will feature the Blade Battery, an 8-in-1 electric powertrain, and highly integrated domain controllers. The platform features the world’s first 8-in-1 electric powertrain (with drive motor, motor controller, reducer, onboard charger, DC converter, high-voltage distribution box, vehicle controller, and Battery Management System (BMS) integrated), resulting in a 20 per cent overall size reduction and 15 per cent weight reduction; allowing the overall efficiency to exceed 89 per cent!
The car features sharp lines and a sporty posture adding to the vigorous aesthetics of the Dragon Face that it sports. Judging by the other EVs on the road that sit in this segment, the BYD ATTO 3 would win the beauty contest! The cabin is spacious and has a fresh layout that is bound to gel well with customers.

Equipped with the ultra-safe Blade Battery and the born EV platform, the ATTO 3 features fast charging from 0 to 80 per cent within 50 minutes, a range of 521km on a single charge according to ARAI tests with a higher battery capacity of 60.48kWh, and a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 7.3s.
