After finding major success with the second-generation E6 (launched in 2021), BYD is set to introduce yet another electric vehicle–the Atto 3–in Nepal. In the global market, the Atto 3 comes in two battery options: 50.1 kWh and 60.4 kWh. However, in Nepal, Cimex Inc, the authorised distributor of BYD vehicles here, is set to launch the EV with a bigger battery capacity, which provides a range of 420 km (WLTP). The Atto 3 will go head-to-head with the recently launched MG ZS EV Facelift (long range) in terms of range and pricing.
