After E6, Chinese electric car manufacturer BYD recently launched their new electric vehicle Atto 3 in India. The official prices for the same will be announced in November. The BYD Atto 3 is a mid-size SUV and it has already started reaching dealerships. The BYD Atto 3 EV when launched, will compete with cars like Tata Nexon EV Max, MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV in the segment.

Here we have one such quick walkaround video that shows how this new EV looks from outside and inside.
The video has been uploaded by Gouri singh Rajput on his YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows the all-new Atto 3 SUV looks from outside and what all features does it offer. The BYD Atto 3 seen here in the video is finished in grey colou and unlike other electric SUVs that we have in the segment, Atto 3 has a very unique crossover like design to it. Like any other EV, there is no front grille. A chrome strip running through the width of the car has BYD badge on it. The sleek looking LED headlamps look like an extension to the chrome grille.
