    Think they have mispriced that to be successful.

      The extended range version available in Thailand is £27,200 and the best selling EV available there.

      @Andrew Dwyer Is that current exchange rate and includes VAT? Not sure what import duty we pay in the UK for cars made in China

    Here in Israel they are the number 1 best selling car currently – but the MG4 only arrived a couple of months ago, so we’ll see how that pans out.

    I think I’d prefer the MG4 overall.

      The MG4 interior is not comparable at all with the one in Atto 3. Believe me, I tested both.

    2. WildReefer Avatar

      @raul8578 perhaps, but the same is true with the driving dynamics, in favor of the MG4.

      I have an MG4 SE long range and love it. Great to drive and has a range of 281 miles.
      I test drove a BYD but preferred the MG.

    I knew BYD from the electric bus they make and actually now everywhere in UK.

      Yes, Southampton is proposing 32 electric buses to operate in the city (UniLink) at a cost to the taxpayer of £16.5 million….double the cost of Euro 6 compliant buses from Routemaster.

    At that price there’s no reason to buy this over a Kia Niro EV.

      Kia Niro ev uses trash NCM chemistry battery which has a high chance of battery fires

    Need more cars from china here. Its crazy how much china has advanced in a relatively short time. Their cars seem crazy good. Ive seen videos of them. The prices should be cheaper but the western governments will tax like crazy to not make them viable to come here

    Im still hesitent on the longevity of ev’s – until it can replace my 15 year civic at similar running costs, reliability and ease of diy maintence ill be the last one holding onto my ICE car.

    I cannot find any comprehensive information on battery degredation from daily use after 5,10,15 years in all weather conditions .evs are not carbon neutral in ther manufacturing

      ICE cars are not carbon neutral in their manufacturing.

      That’s an interesting way of saying you don’t have money for any type of new car…

      @Conn Clissmann absolutely, the point was – no difference

      @jaybee_impossible – I can definitely change my civic for something new , but unlike some, I buy my cars,not lease – and I wouldn’t want a 15 year old ev that cannot hold its charge,In the middle of winter, unable to take me to the shops and back 😂 .

      if these have a shorter shelf live than ICEs then is it really better in the long term ? Would love to see some data

    I think it’s safe to say,that i won’t be buying a BYD anytime soon!

    hope the west can test some serious Chinese ev brand such as zeekr and nio

    If I ever want to build my dream of being in a Gym with a rotating screen and money is no object, I now know which car to buy.

    All lithium ion batteries, including LFP, degrade faster when they are charged to 100% full. It’s however required to do so frequently to recalibrate the BMS — so to avoid misreading SOC/range.

    Swipe up from bottom of screen in CarPlay to reveal ac settings, it’s really not difficult, it amazes me how many reviews are done without fully understanding how a car functions

    Charging speed is slow but unless your cought out most people will charge at home and you plug it in at night when it’s cheapest and it charged in the morning…

    Being a pedantic as I am! it’s not a portable plug but portable socket
