Extensive research and development
A huge amount of research and development has gone into the batteries utilised within BYD's range of cars.
BYD Blade Batteries were developed to not only improve efficiency, but to offer greater levels of safety when compared to a more common ternary lithium battery.
As an example of this, BYD subjected the Blade Battery to extreme challenges, such as nail penetration and crush tests, to see how it would respond. None of these tests resulted in a negative outcome, and surface temperatures did not exceed 60 degrees centigrade.
Compared to more traditional battery options, where some reached temperatures of up to 400 degrees in similar tests, this is a clear indication of safety you can expect from a BYD car.

Frequently Asked Questions
The BYD ATTO 3's battery is guaranteed by the manufacturer for up to 8 years or 125,000 miles, which is a long time.
Prominent figures within the industry suggest that the batteries will continue to perform well after the warranty period has expired, but this cannot be guaranteed due to external factors, such as how the vehicle has been maintained.
BYD batteries are made in-house by BYD themselves, with each unit made in the brand's state-of-the-art battery plant in Western China's Qinghai province.
The advanced factory is equivalent to the size of 140 football fields, and is one of the largest in the world. In addition, BYD has battery factories located in Shenzhen and Huizhou, which are also in China.
A BYD ATTO 3 can be charged using a Tesla Supercharger as part of the pilot scheme launched by Tesla last year to allow non-Tesla owners to use their charging infrastructure.
However, whilst there are over 1,000 Tesla chargers situated throughout the UK, the pilot scheme currently only grants non-Tesla owners access to a selection of them, so we advise checking via the Tesla smartphone app before travelling to one.
