    New entrant in the EV space, BYD (Build Your Dreams) will launch its second offering for India, the Atto 3 electric SUV, on October 11, 2022. It will join the Rs 25 lakh-35 lakh EV SUV segment in India, which includes models like the MG ZS EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric. Company insiders say that the electric SUV's E platform, which has been designed to take on the likes of Tesla, is expected to provide better driving comfort than its rivals. The Atto 3 is BYD’s second model in the passenger vehicle segment in India, following the e6 MPV.

    • BYD Atto 3 EV SUV to be priced around Rs 30 lakh-35 lakh
    • Will be assembled in India from SKD kits
    • Deliveries expected to start early next year

    The BYD Atto 3 electric SUV is close to 4.5m long and is already on sale in right-hand-drive markets like Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The Atto 3 will come to India via the SKD (semi-knocked down) assembly route and join the all-electric e6 MPV – recently launched for private buyers at Rs 29.15 lakh (ex-showroom, India) – at BYD’s plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai. Deliveries for the BYD Atto 3 EV SUV are expected to start early next year.
