BYD Atto 3

We have separated our BYD Atto 3 article into sections. If you want to wait to read the full article, click the links below to the different areas. We also have an overview of the full specifications, an image gallery, detailed information about charging performance, and some online reviews. Our sections:


The BYD Atto 3 has a maximum power of 150 KW (204 hp/201 bhp). The total torque is 310 nm (229 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 7.3 seconds. The top speed is 160 km/h.

Battery, range, and charging

The battery has a gross capacity of 60,5kWh and a net capacity of 58kWh, meaning you have a 2,5kWh buffer for protection. (4.1%). The Lithium-Ion battery uses LFP technology. This has some benefits and disadvantages from the typical NCA/NCM batteries.

The WLTP range is 420 km (261 mi). The consumption is 13.8kWh/100km for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The maximum DC charging speed is 88kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 59 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 34 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 2% to 63%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 67kW. Each charge session would take 32 minutes and 40 seconds.

For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 55 minutes. This trip will require five charge session(s) charging from 3% to 63%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 156 minutes.

Onboard charger

For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 7 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 8 hours and 17 minutes.
