It will be priced higher because at first it will be brought to India as Semi-knocked down units. At this price, the Atto 3 will have to compete against MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric. Where the competitors look more like a crossover, the Atto 3 looks like a SUV.

BYD Atto 3 comes with a permanent magnet synchronous motor that can generate a max power output of 204 hp and a peak torque output of 310 Nm. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 7.3 seconds. These figures are quite good considering that Atto 3 weighs around 1,680-1,750 kgs.
