BYD Atto 3, entry level price, variants, features, range and rivals -DellyRanks

New base trim brings a smaller 49.92kWh battery that has an ARAI-claimed range of 468km.

BYD has launched two new trims for its Atto 3 electric SUV, which was earlier available only as a fully loaded model. With this, the Atto 3 is available in three trims, namely Dynamic, Premium, and Superior, priced at Rs 24.99 lakh, Rs 29.85 lakh, and Rs 33.99 lakh, respectively. Crucially, the new base trim brings in a smaller battery and fewer features for more competitive pricing.

  1. Premium and Superior trims have 60.48kWh battery
  2. Electric motor specifications remain unchanged
  3. Atto 3 now better placed to rival MG ZS EV

BYD Atto 3 battery, range and specifications

The biggest change in the new Dynamic trim is under the skin—a new 49.92kWh battery with an ARAI-claimed range of 468km. The Premium and Superior trims get the larger 60.48kWh battery that the Atto 3 originally came with; their ARAI-claimed range is 521km. All three trims continue to be powered by a single front-axle electric motor that produces 204 hp and 310 Nm of torque.

Using a DC fast charger, the Atto 3’s battery pack can be charged from 0 to 80 percent in 50 minutes, irrespective of the variant. When using an AC charger, it takes 8 hours to fully charge the smaller battery and approximately 10 hours for the larger battery. The company is offering a 7kW home charger and a 3kW portable charging box.

BYD Atto 3 features

The new entry-level trims naturally lose out on a few features available in the Superior version. The mid-spec Premium trim doesn’t have the ADAS suite and adaptive LED headlights. The Dynamic version 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. BYD has also introduced a new Cosmos Black colour for the all-electric SUV. 

All trims continue with features such as a 12.8-inch rotating touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a 5-inch digital instrument cluster, a 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.

BYD Atto 3 rivals

Until now, the Atto 3 did not have a direct competitor, with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 having a more premium positioning and the MG ZS EV being a lot more affordable. But now, the Atto 3’s entry-level variants are far better placed as rivals to the ZS EV, which has a 50.3kWh battery pack, a claimed range of 461km and is priced in the range of Rs 18.98 lakh–Rs 25.44 lakh, ex-showroom. The Atto 3 will also see competition from upcoming EVs such as the Hyundai Creta EV and Maruti eVX.

All prices ex-showroom, India.
