Chinese electric vehicle BYD ATTO 3 obtained maximum safety rating Euro NCAP

China's BYD car manufacturer has a five-star safety rating under the European Motor Vehicle Evaluation Programme for the electric crossover ATTO 3. It's not the first Chinese company to get high safety ratings in Europe – they've been actively trying to create a platform in the European automobile market lately.

Euro NCAP ratings are technically capable of delivering only marketing benefits because they do not provide the producer with any legislative advantage; however, many European buyers pay attention to its importance, and producers do not miss a case of high ratings.

It was only this week that BYD introduced ATTO 3 in India, and in China the car is being sold under the name Yuan Plus. Last week, the German company Sixt, a rental company, announced its intention to purchase about 100,000 BYD vehicles over the next few years.

In the last month, five stars were produced by the Great Wall Motor, a Coffee 01 hybrid produced under the WAY brand and the Funky Cat electric sedan under the ORA brand. The four stars also received the eCitron C5 X, released jointly by Stellantis and Dongfeng, as well as the Mobile Limo, the electric sedan of the Renault and Jiangling Motors.

Among the other vehicles that received five stars for safety today is the EQE electric sedan of Mercedes-Benz. According to Euro NCAP, the machine has achieved the highest rating for the system leading the car to the slowest lane on the track and allowing automatic stopping if the driver ceases to act.
