What is e-Platform 3.0

In terms of intelligence, the newly released platform includes BYD’s in-house-built vehicle operating system, which offers a high-standard cooperation system for high-level intelligent driving. It transforms the traditional distributed electrical/electronic architecture (EEA) into the domain centralised architecture, which is divided into four sets of domain control systems for smart powertrain, vehicle control, smart cockpit, and intelligent driving, resulting in improved interaction between vehicles and people, as well as vehicles and other things on roads.

Notably, BYD is the first Chinese company to commence scale manufacturing of the domain control system for vehicle control. In terms of efficiency, the e-platform 3.0 comes standard with a newly updated 8-in-1 drive system module, the first of its kind in the world, allowing overall efficiency to exceed 89% and a range over 1,000 kilometres for a car. An electric vehicle (EV) based on the platform can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 29 seconds thanks to the all-new four-wheel-drive system. With 800V fast charging technology, a 5-minute charge may add 150km to an EV’s range.

In terms of safety, the e-platform 3.0 considerably increases the structural integrity of an all-electric vehicle and BYD’s ultra-safe Blade Battery pack, aiming to quadruple the torsional stiffness of the car body.


 The Atto 3 has a crossover design on the outside. The chrome grille, broad bumper, and LED headlights dominate the front end. The flared wheel arches, R18 diamond-cut wheels, and sloping roofline are visible from the side. A single-piece tail lamp, strong bumper, and little badging can be found at the rear. It has a length of 4.45 metres and a width of 2.72 metres.


The inside is decked out with chrome and quality plastics. The AC vents and climate control are distinctive, as is the digital instrument cluster, which is distinctive and funky in appearance. The entire cabin has been trimmed in beige and black. A rotatable touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, power windows, power mirrors, LED projector headlamps, and a 360-degree camera will be standard. It comes standard with eight airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, hill descent control, ESP, a 360-degree camera, and driver assistance systems.

Colours Expected

In other worldwide countries, BYD sells four colour options of the Atto 3, which we expect to ship to India as well. Ski White, Surf Blue, Parkour Red, and Boulder Grey are among the colours available.

Battery and Charging Options

The Atto 3 is powered by BYD’s blade battery technology, which has a 60.48 kWh pack and a 200bhp/310Nm electric motor. It is FWD and has a claimed range of 420 kilometres. The fastest charging method is an 80kW DC charger, which is projected to charge the battery in under 60 minutes. An AC charging station and a normal three-pin wall socket connection are also included.


1. High-efficiency heat pump system

It also includes BYD’s new high-efficiency heat pump, which can operate in temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C. As a result, the cold weather range would expand by 20%. It also cuts energy usage (per 100 kilometres) by 10%. BYD’s innovative SiC electronics control chip will increase packing density by 30% while raising maximum efficiency by 99.7%. These SiC semiconductors are manufactured by BYD. BYD is the only car manufacturer that manufactures its own chips.

Lane Keep Assistance (LKA)

If you lose concentration, the BYD ATTO 3 will automatically guide you back to your lane.

Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)

At speed, less than 60 km/h, our Intelligent Cruise Control system automatically follows the course and pace of the vehicle in front of you.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA),
Rear Cross Traffic Brake (RCTB) :

When reversing, the rear-angle millimetre-wave radar watches other road users approaching the vehicle’s rear in real time, emitting a warning sound and actuating the brakes if a collision is imminent.


BYD Atto 3 price has yet to be disclosed by the automaker, who will do so before beginning sales of the new Atto 3 electric SUV in India. However, anticipate paying between 20 and 25 lakh for it (ex-showroom)

• The Atto 3 has reached dealerships and test drives are also underway.

• There are open reservations for Rs. 50,000.

• Delivery of the 500-unit initial batch is scheduled for January 2023.

• Prices will be made public in December and are anticipated to start at Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom).

Within a week of its launch, BYD’s newest vehicle in the nation, the Atto 3, has arrived at showrooms and is accessible for test drives. Along with the E6 MPV, it will be introduced through the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route, adding to the automaker’s lineup.

With a variety of inserts and finishes that seem, to put it mildly, odd, it breathes new life into the interior. The cool parts are all accessible through our auto-visual tale. The India-specific vehicle has a 204 PS electric motor and a 60 kWh battery pack with support for rapid charging, giving it an ARAI-stated 521 km range. Our in-depth photographic post will walk you through every feature of the electric SUV.

Several ADAS technologies are among the several safety features that the SUV is equipped with, including frontal collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. With all of this safety gear, the SUV breezed through the Euro NCAP crash testing and received a perfect five-star safety rating.

For a symbolic sum of Rs 50,000, order books for the Atto 3 are currently open. In December, BYD will reveal the SUV’s price, which is anticipated to be close to Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom). It will be a larger, more upscale alternative to the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric.
