Until the end of next month, 2023 model-year examples of Australia’s third-best selling electric car are available with $2023 off.
The BYD Atto 3 electric SUV from China is available with a $2023 cash-back until the end of next month – as sales slide amid the arrival of newer and cheaper competitors.
The $2023 discount is a rebate only offered on 2023 model-year Atto 3s, and can only be redeemed on vehicles delivered before 31 March 2024.
BYD says the cash-back will be processed within “60 days” of the vehicle being delivered, and is supplementary to any state or territory government rebate.
It is only offered to private buyers, and excludes demonstrator vehicles in stock.
While BYD Australia claims the discount is meant to celebrate the Chinese car maker’s international sales success last year, it may be designed to boost interest as the Atto 3 has failed to surpass 1000 deliveries in a month since July 2023.
June 2023 represented BYD’s best month in Australia, with the Chinese brand reporting 1532 deliveries – all of which were Atto 3s.
