BYD India has released the first teaser for the BYD Atto 3 electric SUV on their social media platform. The teaser does not reveal much except the LED Daytime Running Lamps glowing in the dark.  BYD has still not confirmed when the Atto3 will launch in India but it is expected to happen soon. BYD Atto 3 is expected to be priced between 25 lakh (ex-showroom) to 35 lakh (ex-showroom). 

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.
