BYD India, the Indian arm of Chinese auto giant BYD, achieved a major milestone by delivering 200 Atto 3 electric SUVs in a single day across six cities in the country. The delivery events took place in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Kochi, and were timed perfectly to coincide with the festive season. The Atto 3, launched last year, has been well-received by customers, and the delivery events featured live music powered by the vehicle’s innovative V2L (Vehicle to Load) feature, which allows users to power external devices or even a small room.
Customers were handed the keys to their new Atto 3 SUVs, with some opting for the First Edition variant in the special Forest Green color. Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior Vice President of Electric Passenger Vehicle Business at BYD India, expressed gratitude for the support of the company’s dealership network in achieving this milestone. He also emphasized BYD India’s commitment to a cleaner and greener future for the country and expressed excitement about bringing more innovative electric vehicles to India and beyond.
The Atto 3 impressed customers and critics alike with its impressive range and performance. Priced at ₹34 lakh (ex-showroom), the SUV is equipped with BYD’s Blade battery technology and a 60.48 kWh battery pack, providing a certified range of 521 km on a single charge. The electric motor delivers 201 bhp of power and 310 Nm of torque, allowing the Atto 3 to accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 7.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 160 kmph.
The Atto 3 offers a DC fast charging time of 50 minutes for 0-80% charge and features advanced safety and convenience technologies, including Level 2 Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS), seven airbags, a panoramic sunroof, NFC card key, V2L, and more. It also features a 12.8-inch adaptive rotating infotainment screen and a 360-degree holographic transparent imaging system. The Atto 3 competes in the same segment as the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric.
Overall, the successful delivery of 200 Atto 3 electric SUVs in a single day demonstrates the growing demand for electric vehicles in India and BYD India’s commitment to providing high-quality and innovative electric mobility solutions.
