The Chinese EV maker, BYD, backed by Warren Buffet, recently launched the most awaited Atto 3 electric SUV into the Indian EV market. It is a firm that has a prominent position at the forefront of electric vehicle technology, having made significant technical, financial, and cognitive investments in the EV industry. It creates the Blade, generally regarded as the smartest and most cutting-edge lithium-ion battery in the world. This is no little accomplishment. Even Tesla, which takes great pride in its in-house battery technology, will probably employ BYD's Blade cells for its Model Y, which is made in Germany. Additionally, it is one of the world's biggest makers of lithium-ion batteries. Therefore, BYD is certainly not a tech dummy.
The business is not new to India. The business has been operating at this location for the past 15 years, focusing on chargers, solar cells, battery bank, electric buses, vehicles, and forklifts, as well as mobile accessories. The Atto 3 is BYD's second vehicle to enter the Indian market; the company now has roughly 20 dealers spread throughout the country's major cities.
The EV is priced at around Rs. 33.99 lahks (ex-showroom) and offers a range of around 521km when fully charged. The company has already begun shipment of the BYD Atto 3 in India.

It's important to note that the Atto 3 had more than 1,500 reservations by December of last year, and that figure is likely to have increased considerably more by this point.
