The BYD Yuan was first released in 2016. In November this year, 42,323 vehicles were sold under the BYD Yuan series, making its 2023 cumulative sales 386,899 units, according to the carmaker. Furthermore, 500,000 units of the Yuan Plus (also known as the Atto 3 in the overseas market) were sold in just 20 months since its launch in February 2022, becoming the fastest new energy SUV by a Chinese brand to achieve this milestone.
