BYD Atto 3 - Australian Model Budget EV? | Interview with Owner + Walkaround | Comparing to MG ZS EV


Welcome to Electric Car Australia and my latest video attending the awesome 2022 EV Experience Day recently at Redlands Showgrounds. Noel, a regular watcher of the channel was there with his new Australian model BYD Atto 3 which he took delivery of only 24 hours earlier. EXCITING!!

Noel and I have a quick chat about the BYD buying experience, recent warranty changes and make some comparisons between the BYD Atto 3 and the 1st and 2nd generation MG ZS EV model. I also take a good look around the Atto 3 and make some comments. I also interview another prospective first time EV owner considering the BYD Atto 3.

On a general note, I was blown away by the number of viewers to this channel I met and the encouraging comments and discussions we had, so thanks to all those supporters. Enjoy the video
