BYD will launch Tang, Han and Atto 3 electric vehicles in Europe
BYD will debut the Tang, Han and Atto 3 in Europe at its Product Premiere on September 28. The company has already confirmed that the next car to launch on the continent will be the Atto 3, also named the Yuan Plus, arriving in the UK by the end of October. More vehicles are expected to reach Norway, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and Sweden from Q4; BYD has already formed partnerships with dealers such as Louwman and the Hedin Mobility Group. Unlike some competitors, BYD is not facing production constraints, allowing it to deliver its electric vehicles to European customers within weeks.
The BYD Tang and Han models are AWD, with a top speed of 180 kph (~112 mph) and a 380 kW (509 hp) output. While the Tang is a seven-seater with a 4.6 second 0 to 100 kph (~62 mph) acceleration, the Han is a five-seater, which only takes 3.9 seconds to achieve the same speed. The estimated range also differs, with the Tang rated at 400 km (~249 miles) and the Han forecast to reach 521 km (~324 miles) on a single charge.
The FWD Atto 3 has a 150 kW (201 hp) motor and a top speed of 160 kph (~100 mph). This five-seater electric car is the slowest, accelerating to 100 kph (~62 mph) in 7.3 seconds, and has a 420 km (~261) mile range. All three models support DC fast charging from 30% to 80% in around 30 minutes. The official European price list for the EVs is yet to be announced. As a guide, the BYD Tang is already available in Norway, starting from 619,900 NOK (~€60,331 or ~US$58,459).
