When it arrives in July 2022, the BYD Atto 3 (BYD Yuan Plus) will be the cheapest electric car on the market. With a price of just under $45,000 driveaway, this “Build Your Dreams” electric car comes from China and will compete with the MG ZS EV, though BYD says the major rival is the Tesla Model 3. BYD is predicting 18,000 sales per year in Australia. That’s a huge number, given the Model 3 only sold 12,000 last year. Will the BYD Atto 3 be Australia’s favourite EV? Let’s find out!

In today’s episode, Chasing Cars editor Tom Baker takes you on a detailed, independent walkaround review of the 2022 BYD Atto 3 electric SUV. Available with a standard range 50kWh battery of an extended range 60kWh battery for $3000 more, the Atto 3 has 320km or 420km of range (WLTP) and a single FWD electric motor with 150kW of power (201 hp).
