BYD ATTO 3 Scores Five-Star Rating in Euro NCAP Safety Tests

  • BYD's new ATTO 3 C-segment SUV achieves five-star rating in Euro NCAP tests underpinning the safety benefits derived from BYD's latest e-Platform 3.0
  • Excellent results include scores of 91% for adult occupant protection and 89% for child occupant protection
  • The new model benefits from the ultra-safe Blade Battery, and the ultimate in system efficiency and integrated vehicle intelligence

The all-new full-electric BYD ATTO 3 has been awarded the five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, Europe's leading independent safety assessment programme. The BYD ATTO 3, which makes its European market debut at the Paris Motor Show, performed to a high standard throughout the test process, illustrating the vehicle's exceptional active and passive safety credentials.

BYD ATTO 3 scores five-star rating in Euro NCAP safety tests

Impressive scores in four categories

The BYD ATTO 3 was assessed by Euro NCAP engineers in four categories: adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, safety assistance, and protection for vulnerable road users. For adult occupant protection the BYD ATTO 3 scored an impressive 91%, with Euro NCAP praising, in particular, how the passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. In the child occupant protection tests, the BYD ATTO 3 achieved 89%, minimising impact to all critical body areas for both the six and ten-year-old representative dummies.

BYD ATTO 3 safety assist systems achieved a score of 74%, with Euro NCAP highlighting the performance of the camera-based Intelligent Speed Limit Assist and Lane Keeping Assist systems. The vehicle's autonomous emergency braking system (AEB) contributed to a vulnerable road user score of 69%, with testers giving specific mention to the system's recognition of pedestrians and cyclists.

Safety & Driving Assistance

Key to the test result is BYD's world-leading technology. BYD's new generation e-Platform 3.0, comprises the world's first mass-produced highly integrated 8-in-1 electric powertrain connecting all electric control units and management systems, and the rigorously tested ultra-safe Blade Battery. BYD e-Platform 3.0 features a 'multi-load path' structure controlling how energy is absorbed by the car in the event of a collision, minimising intrusion into the passenger cabin. Passenger protection is further enhanced by a reinforced body structure with high torsional rigidity.

There is an abundance of safety and advanced driver assistance features as standard equipment in the BYD ATTO 3. It features Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Rear Collision Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Brake, Lane Keep Assistance, Lane Change Assist, and Emergency Lane Keep.

In addition, further driver aids include Blind Spot Detection System, ESP, Traction Control, Hill Decent Control, Automatic Vehicle Hold, Intelligent Speed Limit Information, and Intelligent Speed Limit Control. The driving experience is improved by Adaptive Cruise Control and Intelligent Cruise Control. The panoramic camera provides 360-degree visibility for the driver for safe manoeuvring of the vehicle.

Michael Shu, General Manager and Managing Director, BYD Europe and International Cooperation Division, said: "We are excited to introduce the safe, efficient, zero-emission BYD ATTO 3 C-SUV to customers in Europe. As BYD works relentlessly in the field of eco-friendly technological development, customers have the reassurance that safety is always at the forefront of all our innovations. The new BYD ATTO 3, with its robust structure and modern assistive technologies inherent to the e-Platform 3.0, is a testament to this and substantiated by the five-star Euro NCAP rating, bringing customers the peace of mind of optimised safety for occupants and other road users."
