BYD broadens the appeal of its Atto 3 electric SUV with two new entry-level trims.

While sacrificing some features, these trims boast a smaller battery pack for a lower price tag, potentially attracting budget-conscious EV buyers.

BYD Expands Atto 3 Electric SUV Lineup With Entry-Level Options

BYD has introduced two new, more affordable trims for its Atto 3 electric SUV, previously available only in a single, fully-loaded variant. These new trims, dubbed Dynamic and Premium, join the existing Superior trim, creating a three-tiered offering. The base Dynamic trim starts at Rs 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom), significantly lower than the original price of Rs 33.99 lakh. A new Cosmos Black color option is introduced across all trims
Battery and Range Options
The key difference between the trims lies in their battery packs and range. The Dynamic trim gets a smaller, 49.92kWh battery offering an ARAI-claimed range of 468km. The Premium and Superior trims retain the larger 60.48kWh battery with a longer 521km range. The vehicle continues to use the same rear-mounted electric motor producing 204hp and 310Nm of torque.
Fast charging remains consistent across variants, with the battery reaching 80% capacity from 0% in 50 minutes using a DC charger. AC charging times vary; the smaller battery charges in 8 hours, while the larger one takes 10 hours. BYD offers a 7kW home charger and a 3kW portable charger for added convenience.
Features and Competition
The new trims come with some feature sacrifices compared to the Superior trim. The Premium trim loses the advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and adaptive LED headlights, while the base Dynamic trim further misses out on a powered tailgate, an 8-speaker sound system, ambient lighting, and rides on smaller 17-inch wheels.
The top-spec Superior trim retains premium features like a large touchscreen, phone connectivity, a digital instrument cluster, a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, and automatic climate control. Safety features across all trims include a 360-degree camera, airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, and tyre pressure monitoring.
The new entry-level Atto 3 trims now compete directly with the MG ZS EV, which boasts a similarly sized battery and range at a starting price point lower than the Atto 3. The Atto 3 will also face competition from upcoming electric SUVs like the Hyundai Creta EV and Maruti eVX.
