AC Motors to hold official reveal of BYD Atto 3 in PH next week
After holding a special preview of its newest electric crossover, AC Motors has announced that it will be making its official premiere later this month.
On November 17, 2023, BYD Philippines will be launching the Atto 3 EV. The reveal will happen at 11:00 AM at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City. This means the public will be able to witness the official launch of BYD's latest EV offering in the country.
Other details regarding the Atto 3 itself are not yet available at this time. However, we already have a good idea of what to expect. When BYD previewed the Atto 3 at the 11th Philippine EV Summit, we saw that the unit they showed has a 15.6-inch touchscreen infotainment, a 5-inch digital instrument panel, a panoramic sunroof, a wireless charging pad, and a leather interior.
While the exact specs have yet to be officially confirmed, we won't be surprised if the Atto 3 BYD will reveal next week that will have similar levels of equipment as the preview version they showed last month. Speaking of specs, we could also expect the PH-spec Atto 3 to generate over 200 PS and put out more than 300 Nm of torque according to BYD PH CEO Toti Zara.
More importantly, the Atto 3 is expected to cover up to 480 km which means it may likely get the 63.8 kWh battery pack that supports CCS2 (AKA Type II) charging. Size-wise, the BYD Atto 3 could measure 4455mm long, 1875mm wide, 1615mm tall, and will have a wheelbase of 2720mm.
Pricing for the BYD Atto 3 is not yet available. However, it will reportedly sell between PHP 2 million to PHP 2.4 million.
