BYD and its local partner MOK CO., LTD. launched the electric SUV BYD Atto 3 Based on e-Platform 3.0 and equipped with BYD’s Blade Battery in Laos.

BYD Atto 3 boasts an outstanding advantage with an NEDC range of up to 480 km. The debut of BYD Atto 3 offers a superior option for residents when purchasing new energy vehicles, empowering Laotians to lead a green, low-carbon lifestyle. This also marks BYD’s further expansion in overseas markets.

In 2009, BYD started its business layout in the Laotian market. In October 2019, BYD joined hands with MOK and officially opened a store to sell PEV models like the Yuan EV and Tang EV, becoming the first new energy vehicle manufacturer to sell EVs in Laos. In July 2021, 28 units of new energy vehicles were shipped to the Saysettha Low-carbon Demonstration Zone in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. This batch of vehicles included twelve C8 pure electric buses, eight T5D pure electric trucks, and eight Yuan EVs, covering commercial vehicles, logistics vehicles and passenger vehicles. In December 2021, BYD delivered the first Han EV to the Prime Minister’s Office of Laos.

From January to September 2022, BYD delivered 360 units of electric vehicles to Laos. So far, the car ownership of BYD is over 2,000 units in this country, and BYD ranks first in the pure electric market share in Laos.

To accelerate the energy transformation and upgrades, the Laotian government has set a goal for NEV development. It is estimated that by 2025, the penetration rate of Laos’ new energy vehicle market will reach 15%, and it will exceed 50% by 2030. Meanwhile, the government strongly supports the use of clean energy in transportation and promotes EV adoption, presenting a major opportunity for BYD to further engage the Laotian market.

BYD Atto 3 is the first A-class SUV based on the e-Platform 3.0, which is designed for the next generation of PEVs offering four major advantages: intelligence, efficiency, safety and aesthetics. In the future, BYD will insist on technological innovations and expand the Southeast Asian markets. By providing overall new energy solutions worldwide, BYD will make contributions to the global realization of zero carbon emissions.
