BYD has rolled out a range of tweaks for its popular Atto 3 electric crossover, while also cutting prices.

    It’s available to order now.

    It’s distinguished by new black D-pillar and window trim, as well as a ‘BYD’ badge on the tailgate.

    The Atlas Batman tyres have been ditched in favour of Continentals, while Parkour Red and Forest Green exterior finishes have been dropped in favour of Cosmos Black.

    If you buy an Atto 3 in either Cosmos Black or Boulder Grey, the standard pale grey/blue two-tone interior is replaced with a black/blue interior – though the bright red ‘guitar strings’ in the doors remain.

    The rotating infotainment touchscreen is now a 15.6-inch unit, up from 12.3 inches.

    BYD also says it has added a new camping mode, allowing you to use the air-conditioning while the vehicle is off and the battery is above 20 per cent. There’s also a new karaoke function.
