Chinese electric vehicle giant showcased the Atto3 electric SUV last month, and the official launch is expected to happen later this month. Pre-bookings for the BYD Atto3 are already open, and the price announcement is just around the corner. The Atto3 will go up against the likes of the Hyundai Kona and MG eZS electric SUVs, but will be priced at a premium.

The Atto3 gets a 60.48 kWh battery pack with a claimed range of 521 km. Expect a real world range between 350-400 kilometers, which should be enough for most buyers. The Atto3’s electric motor drives the front wheels, and  puts out 201 BHP-310 Nm. Claimed acceleration number of 7..1 seconds for the 0-100 Kmph run makes the Atto3 the fastest electric SUVs in its segment.

The Toyota Innova HyCross is all set to be unveiled in Indonesia, and the hybrid MPV will arrive in India on the 25th of November 2022. The HyCross will be the first strong hybrid MPV to be sold in the affordable segment, and is expected to have a starting price of under Rs. 20 lakh. The HyCross is expected to sell alongside the Innova Crysta, but will be positioned as a more upmarket option with crossover-ish styling. In fact, Toyota markets the HyCross as a crossover in the Indonesian market.

The Innova HyCross Hybrid is expected to use a 2 liter petrol engine running on the Atkinson’s cycle along with a powerful electric motor. The MPV will also get an all-electric mode, allowing it to be used as an electric car for short distances. The Innova HyCross Hybrid is expected to deliver diesel-beating fuel efficiency with the typical smoothness and refinement of a petrol engine. It’ll be feature-rich. From a panoramic sunroof to advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), the HyCross promises to be the most feature-packed Innova, ever!

The Tiago NRG is essentially the crossover version of the hot selling Tiago hatchback, and the car will soon be available with a factory fitted CNG option. The CNG kit will give the Tiago NRG dual fuel functionality, and the car will be able to run on either CNG or petrol depending on the mode chosen by the driver. This will give the Tiago NRG iCNG the ability to be a frugal city hatchback as well as a highway mile muncher depending on what the situation demands.

The Tiago NRG iCNG will be powered by a 1.2 liter-3 cylinder Revotron naturally aspirated petrol engine with CNG functionality. While this engine makes 84 Bhp-115 Nm while running on petrol, it puts out while running on 72 Bhp-95 Nm CNG. A 5 speed manual gearbox will be standard. Switching between petrol and CNG can be done by means of a dashboard switch. The price announcement is expected to happen very soon.
