BYD Atto 3 EV First Drive Review

BYD Atto 3 is an electric SUV and is the second launch after the e6 MPV.

The Atto 3 is the first premium SUV from BYD

Size-wise, it is bigger than the ZS and looks premium with a simple design ethos.

It is more of a crossover but one that is styled well with no fussy bits.

Like the e6, you get a 12.8-inch rotating touchscreen that turns into a portrait or landscape mode.

The feature list contains a big glass panoramic sunroof

The 521km range as per ARAI.

The battery pack is 60.48kWh while its electric motor makes 204hp and 310Nm.

It is a fairly heavy car but it does claim to go from  0-100km/h in 7.3s, which is very quick indeed.

A short drive showed that the Atto 3 is fast and has a smooth driving experience.

There is no sudden spike that shocks you and instead, it builds speed smoothly.

The impressive real-world range is also well above 400km while the ground clearance is ample too.
