BYD Atto 4/Seal

Fledgling Chinese carmaker BYD will launch its answer to the Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2, the Seal/Atto 4, early in 2023, though Australian-market orders are expected to commence from October this year.

Along with sleek styling and an upmarket-looking interior, the four-door five-seater sports sedan might slip in at around $50,000, making it substantially cheaper than other similarly-sized and specified EVs.
