It’s hard for us to imagine a time before the internal combustion engine. In truth, we would have to travel back to the 19th Century, where electric vehicles (EV’s) outsold gasoline cars ten to one and dominated the roads and dealerships.
In the 1920’s, the improvement in road infrastructure required vehicles with longer range, so with worldwide petroleum discoveries making gas-powered cars cheaper to operate, the convenience the internal combustion offered was undeniable. The focus from EV’s simply shifted in favour of the alternative, and that is history.
It was not until the 2000’s, the time of the global economic crisis, that the EV brought renewed interest and in independence once again. The vast technology boom paved the way to understanding how battery technology could be applied to commercial applications once again. Whilst the road to electric has been a slow one in the past decade, the charge to deliver cars overflowing with design and technology to a new audience in the now has been exciting.
Electric vehicle giant Tesla was the catalyst in “…accelerating the worlds transition into sustainable transport…” and today in Australia nearly every EOM has a stake in the EV space and price point with their own offering with household manufacturers being joined by new market entries – the choice is exciting.
Enter the new Atto 3 from BYD: A manufacturer that may be new to our shores but on a global scale, the largest selling EV manufacturer in the world today. With industry-leading technology, their high-tech focus is on delivering once-in-a-century transition to electrification.
Based on an all-new e-Platform 3.0 designed exclusively for pure electric vehicles and giving full play to the advantages of intelligence, efficiency, safety and aesthetics, the e-Platform aims to promote NEVs’ performance in safety and low-temperature driving range as well as improve intelligent driving experiences, to build more efficient and safer new intelligent EVs.
Powered by a front-wheel-drive 150kW electric motor producing 310Nm of torque from zero, the drive off the line is quick. And whilst other electric vehicles make key components of their vehicles including transmission, controller, on-board charger, drive motor and battery management systems, Atto 3 combines 8 key components into a world-first package that maximises space and energy efficiency. The Blade Battery technology is an industry leader too combining safety, strength, lifespan and longer range.
