BYD – for Build Your Dreams – might be a new name in Europe but it’s actually a huuuge company. Founded in 1995 as a battery maker, the Chinese brand rapidly grew into the biggest electric vehicle maker in its home market, making everything from forklifts to buses. And, of course, cars. Lots and lots of cars. BYD has made more than three million EVs so far, and now it’s rapidly expanding across Europe with a temptingly affordable line-up.
BYD’s got real EV engineering expertise, too, making components in-house including battery packs, motors and semiconductors, and it builds its cars tough – the ATTO 3 family SUV even scored a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP safety tests.
