Chinese electric SUV becomes top-selling EV in Sweden for July

Last month, the top-selling EV in Sweden was not the Volkswagen ID.4, a Volvo vehicle, or even the Tesla vehicle Y. It was the Atto 3 electric SUV from BYD. As demand for functional, inexpensive electric vehicles develops, the Chinese EV manufacturer’s sales continue to rocket both internationally and domestically.

In a continuing conquest, BYD earns the top-selling EV in Sweden

BYD continues to expand swiftly, setting a new monthly sales record (for the third month in a row) in July, selling over 262,000 new energy vehicles. This includes 134,783 all-electric vehicles, a 66% increase over last year and a 5% increase over June.

The carmaker reported that its Dynasty and Ocean brands sold 249,959 vehicles in July, a 54% increase, while Denza sold 11,146 vehicles.

Meanwhile, BYD is growing its brand internationally, with 18,169 vehicles exported in only one month. BYD continues to capitalize on the growing demand for inexpensive EVs in key auto markets.

The Chinese automaker debuted its cheapest EV in Europe, the BYD Dolphin hatchback, in April, with prices starting at around 30,000 euros ($33,000).

The BYD Atto 3 outperformed the Volkswagen ID.4 (710), Skoda Enyaq (370), Tesla Model Y (359), Kia EV6 (303), and Polestar 2 (282).

Tesla’s Model Y has 8,901 registrations in Sweden so far this year, followed by the Volvo XC 40 (6,660), VW ID.4 (5,072), and Polestar 2 (1,427).

The Atto 3 is powered by BYD’s BladeBattery and a 150 kW electric motor, with a WLTP combined range of roughly 261 miles (420 km).
