Build Your Dreams (BYD) coming to Malaysia?

If you are not aware of who or what BYD is, it is a Chinese EV giant that managed to overtake Tesla to become the largest EV manufacturer to date. A report by The Edge said that Sime Darby Motors (SDM) is currently in talks with the EV giant to be an official distributor in Malaysia.

So why does it matter? BYD makes a range of vehicles, from buses, trucks, and passenger cars to even forklifts. With sales surpassing even the likes of Tesla, BYD does mean business. Reports suggest that BYD is setting up a plant in Thailand to manufacture their passenger cars’ right-hand-drive (RHD) models, especially the BYD Atto 3. Hopefully, with this, BYD will have a stronger presence here in Malaysia

What are your thoughts on BYD’s lineup, especially the Atto 3 and their Tesla ‘killer’, the BYD Han? Let us know down below.

BYD Atto 3. Soon to debut in Thailand for around RM RM140+k. Kona rival?
Interior looks futuristic, but a little tacky in my opinion.
The Han does look handsome.
