BYD Continues to Drive EV Wave in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, January 17, 2023 – Following the successful launch of BYD in Malaysia, with 1,000 orders received for the Energy Awaken ATTO 3 within just 10 days, BYD marked another exciting milestone, delivering the first 100 units of the all-electric sports utility vehicle (SUV) to Malaysian customers.

Jeffrey Gan, Managing Director of Retail & Distribution of Sime Darby Motors Malaysia, commented, “With the delivery of the first BYD ATTO 3 vehicles to the Malaysian market, we look forward to maintaining our momentum with more units currently enroute and slated to reach Malaysia very soon. We will continue to drive the acceleration of EV adoption in Malaysia and as we expand our EV portfolio with world-class partners such as BYD to bring exciting innovations to the market, we strive to cater to the growing demand for environmental-friendly options amongst Malaysians, fueling the nation’s aspirations towards achieving low carbon mobility.”

Among the first 100 customers to receive the BYD ATTO 3 was Mr Goh, who shared, “BYD is a global best-selling EV brand, I knew of this brand much earlier before it launched, so when I learned that it was coming to Malaysia, I felt it was the perfect opportunity and quickly placed a booking! When I first saw it here, I have to say the design, specifications and performance of the BYD ATTO 3 truly surpassed my expectations, and on top of all that driving an EV is also better for the environment.”

Available in two variants, the BYD ATTO 3 is priced from RM149,800 for the Standard Range and RM167,800 for the Extended Range, with a choice of five vibrant colour palettes, namely Surf Blue, Parkour Red, Boulder Grey, Forest Green and Ski White.
