Another day, another new electric car for the Nepalese market. But with the 2022 BYD Atto 3, it’s a different story. The proof will only be in the pudding of course, but initial impressions of the 2022 BYD Atto 3 are good.

ATTO 3 is the first SUV built on BYD’s e-platform 3.0, specially designed for high-performance electric vehicles with four significant advantages: intelligence, efficiency, safety, and aesthetics.

The e-platform 3.0 improves EV safety and battery performance as well as optimizes the driving experience. It creates a new generation of smart electric vehicles that are more efficient and safer. Concurrently, ATTO 3 is also specially configured with the BYD auto applications for the Australian market.

Embodying BYD’s new design language, ATTO 3 is the first SUV featuring the sporty-themed interior designed by BYD Global Interior Design Director, Michele Jauch-Paganetti, exhibiting the senses of passion and energy for the customers.

BYD’s revolutionary Blade Battery technology comes as a standard in ATTO 3, offering drivers industry-leading safety levels as well as an extended single-charge range capability. Launched by BYD in 2020, Blade Battery is the only battery that successfully passes the nail penetration test, the most rigorous way to test the thermal runaway of batteries. Also, the space utilization of the Blade Battery pack increases by over 50%, compared with that of conventional lithium iron phosphate block batteries, resulting in significant improvements in energy efficiency and range.

Cimex BYD is retailing four color variants of Atto 3 which includes Ski White, Surf Blue, Parkour Red, and Boulder Grey.
