BYD pulls the wrap off the ATTO 3 in India
BYD has unveiled a new electric car–the ATTO 3–in India. The ATTO 3, based on BYD’s all-new e-platform 3.0, is the company’s second model in the country, in addition to the All-new E6. The new electric SUV is offered in a single variant which is powered by a 60.48 kWh battery pack and it provides an ARAI-certified range of 521 km.
The new ATTO 3’s design is based on the company’s own Dragon Face 3.0 design language. The EV is aerodynamically designed and its front fascia features a sleek bumper with a broad chrome bar at the centre–which is further extended to the slim LED headlamps with DRLs. On the rear, the car comes with split LED tail lamps; the tail lights are connected by a horizontal light bar. And just below the rear windshield, the EV gets a ‘Build Your Dreams’ inscription. Furthermore, the car comes in five colour options: Climbing grey, Hiking green, Parkour red, Skiing white, and Surfing blue.
The EV’s interior is offered in two colour options: Eclipse blue and Hazy grey. The seats are leather-upholstered and the rear seat comes with a 60/40 split feature–which expands the boot space up to 1340-litre. On the dashboard is a steering wheel with mounted control buttons (for audio, phone and AC) and behind it is a 5-inch digital instrument console that displays a speedometer and tachometer dial. At the centre is a 12.8-inch rotating touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The Atto 3 is powered by a 60.48 kWh BYD’s Blade Battery. The battery is paired with a PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) that generates max. power of 150 kW and max. torque of 310 Nm. The EV gets charged from 0-80% in 50 minutes via a 80 kW DC fast charger and using a 7 kW AC charger, the SUV gets full-charged in around 9.5-10 hours. On a full charge, the ATTO 3 provides an ARAI-certified range of 521 km.
