A brand new variant of the BYD Atto 3 is now officially available in Nepal.
Cimex, the authorized distributor of BYD vehicles in Nepal, has added a new variant of the BYD Atto 3.
The story of the BYD Atto 3 (also known as Yuan Plus and S2 Plus) is fascinating.
There was a lot of hype surrounding the initial launch of Atto 3.
It was a game-changing EV with a 150kW motor with a rumored price of 60-65 Lakhs. However, that did not happen due to the tax hike on EVs with more than 100kW Motor capacity, bringing the launch price to 90 Lakhs!
It seems BYD Nepal is going to bring the variant at the promised price, but with a 100kW Motor. Moreover, it will have the same quirks and features as the extended variant, but with a slightly reduced range.
BYD Atto 3 price in Nepal starts at Rs. 64.90 Lakhs to Rs. 89.90 Lakhs.
And, it is currently open for bookings in Nepal.
With that said, let’s take a quick look at the BYD Atto 3 in Nepal along with its specifications.
