Cimex, the authorized distributor of BYD vehicles in Nepal, is planning to add a new EV to its portfolio. It will be an all-new BYD SUV, drastically different from anything seen in the past.

BYD Atto 3 (also known as Yuan Plus and S2 Plus) is confirmed to arrive in the Nepali market. It is stated for an official launch in August 5, 2022.

As for the pricing, BYD Atto 3 price in Nepal will be around Rs. 80 Lakhs – 90 Lakhs.
