BYD has announced the pre-sale prices for the Atto 3, Han, and Tang in Europe, where they will be delivered starting this year in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany.
BYD today introduced three battery electric vehicles (BEVs) -- the Atto 3, Han, and Tang -- to the European market at an online launch event which will be delivered in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany.
By the end of this year, customers in France and the UK will also receive BYD's zero-emission vehicles. After that, additional dealers will be appointed to support BYD's plan to cover all major European markets, it said.
The BYD Atto 3 has a pre-sale price of €38,000 ($36,300). The BYD Han and Tang both have a pre-sale price of €72,000.
It is worth noting that these pre-sale prices apply to Germany and, as a reference for Europe, prices may vary from country to country.
All three models will be presented at this year's Paris Motor Show in October 2022, with final market prices and vehicle specifications to be announced at that time.
All three models are part of BYD's Dynasty series, with the Atto 3 being the first SUV based on BYD's e-Platform 3.0, known as the Yuan Plus in China. The Han is the company's flagship all-electric sedan, and the Tang EV is its flagship SUV.
In China, the three models start at RMB 150,274 ($20,770), RMB 226,140 and RMB 291,140, respectively, before subsidies.
BYD's Atto 3 for European consumers has a battery capacity of 60.48 kWh and offers a WLTP range of 420 km.
The BYD Han has dual electric motors with a combined power of 380 kW or 516 hp and a 0-100 km/h sprint time of just 3.9 seconds. The model is powered by an 85.4 kWh battery pack and has a WLTP range of 521 km.
The BYD Tang has seven seats and a 0-100 km/h time of just 4.6 seconds. It is powered by an 86.4 kWh battery pack and has a WLTP range of 400 km.
All three models are powered by BYD's signature lithium iron phosphate chemistry-based Blade Battery, which comes with an 8-year warranty.
Here are the key specs for all three models.
