Looking for a more affordable way to step into the world of electric motoring? There's good news: Vantage Automotive and BYD Singapore have launched a new, Cat A COE-friendly variant of the BYD Atto 3.

This new variant now delivers a total of 134bhp of power, while retaining the 60.5kWh battery capacity of the 201bhp variant. And it can be yours from $168,888, as opposed to the $193,888 price tag of the 201bhp variant, if you do not opt for a guaranteed COE from Vantage Automotive (prices as of 25 March 2023).

The 134bhp Atto 3 will hit 100km/h from a standstill in 9.7 seconds
At that price, shoppers here looking at smaller vehicles including the Peugeot e-2008 or the Opel Mokka-e now can add the Atto 3 into their list of cars to consider.

And there's plenty about this new Atto 3 that we think will woo customers over to it. Take, for example, the fact that it will offer a total WLTP City range of 565km, and the fact that it can complete the century sprint in just 9.7 seconds (for comparison, the 201bhp Atto 3 will finish the sprint in 7.3 seconds).

The new variant additionally makes no compromises when it comes to charging speed, topping at 80kW when plugged into a direct current supply, and sharing the same 42-minute charging time for a 20% to 80% state-of-charge top up when connected to a 50kW direct current power source.

The car continues to feature the 12.8-inch Intelligent Rotating Infotainment Display in its cabin
The new 134bhp Atto 3 also continues to sport features of the 201bhp variant including Adaptive Cruise Control, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity via the 12.8-inch Intelligent Rotating Infotainment Display.

A special launch discount is being offered for this new Atto 3 variant, which includes a $2,000 discount, a free upgrade to a guaranteed COE, as well as a colour waiver.

Vantage Automotive and BYD Singapore have additionally announced that they will introduce two new models here - the BYD Seal and BYD Dolphin - in the second half of 2023.

Car Model Price as of press time (inclusive of COE)
