Five-star safety rating for Australian-supplied BYD ATTO 3

Independent vehicle safety authority, ANCAP SAFETY, has today published a five-star safety rating for Australian-supplied Standard Range and Extended Range models of the BYD ATTO 3 built from 21 November 2022.

Publication of this rating follows changes made to Australian-sold ATTO 3 models built from 21 November 2022 in relation to the number, placement and use of child restraint anchorages.

Existing owners of Australian-supplied ATTO 3 vehicles built prior to 21 November 2022 are advised to have the brand-initiated updates to the centre rear and front passenger seats completed by BYD as soon as possible so that their vehicle is eligible for the five-star ANCAP safety rating. Vehicles that have not had these updates applied remain unrated by ANCAP.

“The extension of the five-star ANCAP safety rating to newly-built and updated vehicles supplied in Australia will be welcome news to new and existing ATTO 3 owners,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.

“This rating provides positive guidance to potential fleet buyers looking to increase the range of five-star electric vehicles on their purchasing lists,” Ms Hoorweg added.

Publication of this rating for Australian-supplied models follows the October 2022 release of a five-star rating for New Zealand-supplied ATTO 3 models.
