BYD Atto 3 Dynamic launched at Rs 24.99 lakh

Gets a smaller 49.92kW battery with an ARAI-claimed range of 468km

Chinese EV manufacturer BYD has launched 2 new trims for its Atto 3 electric SUV which was earlier available only in the loaded model. With the new variants, the BYD Atto 3 is available in 3 trims namely: Dynamic, Premium, and Superior. They have also reduced the prices by ₹ 9 lakh with the lowest Dynamic trim starting at ₹ 24.99 lakh, Premium at ₹ 29.85 lakh, and Superior at ₹ 33.99 lakh. Along with the new trim levels, BYD has also launched a new Cosmos Black Colour for the electric SUV. 

The new base variant brings forth major changes as it gets a smaller 49.92kWh battery with an ARAI-claimed range of 468km. The premium and the Superior variants get the same 60.48 kWh battery that the Atto 3 originally came with and an ARAI-claimed range of 521km. 

All three variants continue to be powered by a single electric motor attached to the front axle that produces 204PS and 310Nm of torque.

With the use of a DC fast-charger, the BYD Atto 3’s battery pack can be charged from 0 percent to 80 percent within 50 minutes and when using an AC charger, it will take 8 hours to fully charge the smaller battery and 10 hours for the larger one. 

The entry-level variants lose out on features available in the Superior variant. The Premium variant does not get the ADAS suite and the adaptive  LED headlamps while, the Dynamic variant even misses out on a powered tailgate, an 8-speaker sound system and multi-colour ambient lighting, and it rides on smaller 17-inch wheels. 

All the variants will continue to feature the 12.8-inch rotating touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 5-inch digital instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, automatic climate control and powered front seats. Safety features include a 360-degree camera, seven airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability programme and TPMS.

The BYD Atto 3, with the revised pricing now competes with the MG ZS EV which is priced in the range of ₹ 18.98 lakh–₹ 25.44 lakh, ex-showroom. Whether the revised pricing and new variants will boost the sales of the Chinese EV manufacturer in India remains to be seen.
