    BYD Atto 3: powertrain and performance

    Mounted at the front axle, the permanent magnet synchronous electric motor produces 201hp and 310Nm. This allows the Atto 3 to do a 0-100kph run in 7.3 seconds (claimed). It packs a 60.48kWh Blade battery that has an ARAI-certified range of 521km and also gets regenerative braking. 

    The Atto 3’s battery pack can be charged in around 10 hours using a 7kW Type 2 AC charger and in approximately 50 minutes (0-80 percent) with an 80kW DC fast charger. Moreover, BYD has also added a Vehicle to Load (VTL) function with a power output of 3.3kW which allows the Atto 3 to power external devices.

    The Atto 3 EV SUV can be booked for Rs 50,000 and is priced at Rs 33.99 lakh. BYD also introduced a limited-edition Forest Green colour that is available at a premium of Rs 50,000.
