BYD ATTO 3 Scores Five-Star Rating in Green NCAP Tests

The full-electric BYD ATTO 3 has been awarded a five-star rating by Green NCAP, Europe’s leading independent greenhouse assessment programme. The BYD ATTO 3, which debuted in Europe in 2022, performed to a high standard throughout the test process, illustrating its energy efficiency.

Green NCAP is an independent initiative which promotes the development of cars which are clean, energy-efficient, and cause as little harm to the environment as possible. It aims to improve the quality of the air, minimise the use of resources used for passenger transportation and to reduce global warming.

The BYD ATTO 3 was assessed by Green NCAP engineers in a variety of test categories: low consumption and efficiency in cold and warm laboratory tests, highway cycle, and on-road tests. The highest Green NCAP standard is attributed to a car that maximises the reduction of its own pollutants and greenhouse gases and, at the same time, operates at minimised fossil fuel and/or electricity consumption under real-world conditions.

Excellent result in cold ambient test
According to the Green NCAP engineers, the BYD ATTO 3 achieved a perfect score of 10 points in the Clean Air section of the assessment. Additonally, BYD ATTO 3 demonstrated low consumption in both cold and warm laboratory tests with a rate of 18.0 kWh/100 km. BYD ATTO 3 pleasantly surprised the Green NCAP engineers with “unexpectedly low energy demands in the -7 ℃ cold ambient test, the result of the advanced heating concept utilising different sources of powertrain waste heat”.

Efficient powertrain and heating concept
As BYD ATTO 3 is purely electric, its greenhouse emissions originate only from electricity supply; around 50-80 g CO2/km depending on its test consumption. Thanks to its efficient powertrain and heating concept and the relatively low CO2-emmisions of the electricity mix, BYD ATTO 3 scores a high 9,7 out of 10,0. “Overall, the BYD ATTO 3 easily collects all 5 Green Stars and challenges the popular EV brands in the European markets”, stated Green NCAP in its assessment report.

BYD ATTO 3 benefits from its world-leading technology. BYD’s new generation e-Platform 3.0, comprises the world’s first mass-produced highly integrated 8-in-1 electric powertrain connecting all electric control units and management systems, and the rigorously tested ultra-safe Blade Battery.

The BYD ATTO 3 has quickly become the best-selling NEV in multiple countries, such as Sweden, Israel, Singapore, New Zealand, Brazil, and Thailand. It has achieved an impressive 5-star Euro NCAP score and has been honoured with prestigious awards like the "VAB Electric Family Car of the Year of Belgium," and "2022 New Zealand Car of the Year", among others. Last month, the 500,000th BYD ATTO 3 rolled off the production line, achieving another significant milestone.
