BYD Atto 3 electric SUV spied undisguised: Everything you need to know ahead of launch next month


Chinese manufacturer Build Your Dreams (BYD) is all set to launch its second product in the Indian market next month, i.e. the Atto 3 electric SUV. The company had recently released a teaser video of the EV on its official social media handles, revealing the car’s silhouette as well as its DRLs.
Now, the Atto 3 has been spied on test in India, completely undisguised. Talking about its design, the electric SUV gets sharp-looking LED headlamps, connected together with a thick chrome strip that houses the company’s name.
There’s also an LED strip that runs along the bottom of the said chrome strip, joined with the LED DRLs integrated in the headlights. Moving to the rear, the BYD Atto 3 gets wraparound LED tail lights that are also conjoined, with the Build Your Dreams lettering placed just above.

As far as specs are concerned, BYD is yet to reveal any. But we do know that the foreign-spec Att0 3 gets a front-mounted electric motor that produces 204 PS of max power, helping the SUV sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 7.3 seconds.
The electric SUV has an NEDC certified range of 480 km for the Extended Range model, and 410 km for the Standard range version. It will be interesting to see if BYD offers the Atto 3 in India with the same powertrain. We expect the EV to be assembled in the country from semi-knocked down kits (SKD).
On the feature front, the BYD Atto 3 is equipped with a unique 12.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that can be rotated from landscape to portrait mode. The infotainment system is equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The car also gets a digital instrument cluster, along with a range of other amenities. Stay tuned to TOI Auto for more updates on the upcoming BYD Atto 3 electric SUV.
