Is BYD Atto 3 the BEST VALUE EV In Australia? In-depth Interview with a Happy BYD Owner OR IS HE?


Welcome to my in depth interview with an Australian BYD Atto 3 owner who tells it like it is. Hear a genuine, real world opinion on the BYD EV itself and the rather poor buying and handover experience – not a fan of the DIY, help yourself model.

We have a detailed look over and comment on the Atto 3 and also do some comparisons against that other budget EV in Australia the MG ZS EV & finally check out the owners Ocular 7kW, 32 amp home charger.

A very big thank-you to Mel for sharing his new EV and thoughts and of course our 2 young apprentices on the day. Enjoy the video.
