BYD Atto 3
At the heart of the fleet segment
The Atto 3 faces a tough challenge, as it is tasked with putting BYD on the fleet map. This state-of-the-art compact crossover will go head to head with vehicles such as the Kia Niro EV and the BMW iX1. The newest model in the BYD range, the Atto 3, may not look especially original, but it is certainly easy on the eye. BYD has shown far more creativity with the interior, however, with an impressive build and material quality.
A spacious sensation
The Atto 3 features a brand-new platform that makes the most of every inch available. The slim Blade battery takes up very little space, which in turn translates into a spacious interior and a large boot. BYD is also extremely proud of the space-saving and efficiency gains it has achieved by bundling together as many drive and control components as possible. Everything comes in a single, compact unit: from the vehicle control, battery management, engine control and power distribution to the DC/DC converter, on-board charger, electric motor and transmission.
Infotainment that brings the wow factor
The large tablet screen in the middle of the dashboard is inspired by the Tesla Model 3. The graphics also measure up to the competition, and the tablet can be used horizontally and vertically thanks to the 90° tilt at the touch of a button. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't yet compatible with BYD's vehicles, but BYD has pledged to rectify the issue with an over-the-air update in the near future.
A compact car that packs a punch
The Atto 3 can draw on more than 150 kW (204 hp) of power and reach 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. It features advanced Brembo brakes to ensure it can come to a safe stop, although most of the braking force comes from the electric motor, which can recover energy in two modes.
