January 24, 2023 By Jenny-mcintosh

The countdown is on until the BYD Atto 3 releases in Australia this February, and we know we’re not the only ones talking about this car and its specs, from chargers and installation, to how it will change the future of the e-vehicle industry. In fact, we’re so excited for this car to launch, we thought we’d share just how awesome this car is destined to be, along with everything you need to know for stress-free BYD Atto 3 ownership!

Your 30-Second Explainer for Why You’ll Love the BYD Atto 3

As technology across all industries advances, it’s understandable that we expect more from our cars than simply being a means to get from A to B. The BYD Atto 3 certainly delivers on this sentiment.

It features a range of smart systems and designs to make every journey a little more comfortable, from intelligent cruise control to a safe and spacious interior. Whether you’re commuting or heading off on holidays, the BYD Atto 3 promises to be a joy to drive as a quality, fully electric SUV option.

All in all, it’s a car that offers excellent value for money, priced competitively at $44,381–$48,381 (a similar price point to the current, second-most popular electric car on the market, the MG ZS EV). It’s no wonder then that the BYD Atto 3 is appearing on countless lists for 2023’s most highly anticipated cars.

What’s Powering the BYD Atto 3?

Looking a little closer under the hood of the BYD Atto 3, there’s just as much to love. The BYD Atto 3 uses blade battery technology. This is industry-leading when it comes to safety, so you can drive with confidence. Plus, current blade battery technology allows for better utilisation of space, as well as improved energy density. But what does that mean for you? You’re getting a battery that has a longer cycle life and at a lower cost too. Even with those great features mentioned above, this is where the BYD Atto 3 really shines.

But what about chargers — how do you charge your BYD car and will the BYD Atto 3 come with a charger? Rest assured, your new BYD will come with both AC and DC charging ports, along with a 220V emergency charge cable. So, you can simply plug in the charger for your BYD Atto 3 and let the battery do its thing. However, there’s a reason this cable is labelled as ‘emergency’. When it comes to the question of how long does it take to charge a BYD car, if you’re using the emergency cable, it’s going to take 28 hours to get a full charge. That’s why we recommend investing in a more efficient Type 2 charger for your BYD Atto.
