Comparing electric vehicle sales in November, the BYD Atto 3 is second on the best-selling podium in Australia behind the Tesla Model Y (1805), but ahead of the Tesla Model 3 (391), MG ZS EV (The exact number is unknown as its a petrol variant) and is indistinguishable from the Volvo C40 Recharge (243).

Therefore, the Atto 3 accounted for nearly one in five electric vehicles sold last month.

This is despite the fact that local deliveries of many just-registered BYD Atto 3 vehicles were temporarily halted in late October due to an Australian design around its child restraint Isofix anchor points and passenger airbag ‘off’ switch. Due to the issue of compliance with the rule. Deliveries resumed in mid-November.

Excluding light commercial vehicles – limited to the newly launched LDV eT60 ute (two units registered), and the LDV eDeliver 9 and Mercedes-Benz eVito electric vans – it rises to 6.5 per cent for passenger cars and SUVs.
