BYD Yuan Plus (named ATTO 3 in Australia), the first A-class SUV built upon BYD’s e-platform 3.0, was jointly launched in China and Australia and began pre-sales in Australia.
Two models of ATTO 3 would enter the Australian market with the official guide prices ranging from 44,990 to 47,990 AUD (approximately $32,350 to $34,500). The car is covered by a 7-year warranty and has a separate 7-year or 160,000 km (100,000 miles) warranty on the battery.
In the Australian market, Yuan Plus is named ATTO 3. ATTO is inspired by the Attosecond, the smallest time scale unit in physics, which means ATTO 3 is speedy, energetic, and dynamic.
ATTO 3 is the first SUV built on BYD’s e-platform 3.0, specially designed for high-performance electric vehicles with four significant advantages: intelligence, efficiency, safety, and aesthetics.
The e-platform 3.0 improves EV safety and battery performance as well as optimizes the driving experience. It creates a new generation of smart electric vehicles that are more efficient and safer. Concurrently, ATTO 3 is also specially configured with the BYD auto applications for the Australian market.
The brand new #BYD ATTO3 took a spin through the streets of Sydney, visiting some of the city’s most famous landmarks and awakening the public to the future of new energy vehicles.

BYD’s revolutionary Blade Battery technology comes as a standard in ATTO 3, offering drivers industry-leading safety levels as well as an extended single-charge range capability.

Also, the space utilization of the Blade Battery pack increases by over 50%, compared with that of conventional lithium iron phosphate block batteries, resulting in significant improvements in energy efficiency and range.
The BYD ATTO 3 is offered in two battery versions:
– Standard range battery version: 320 km (WLTP) 400km (NEDC)
– Long range battery version: 420km (WLTP) 480km (NEDC)
