Further Dealer Network Expansion
03 August 2023
It’s almost 12 months to the day since the first BYD ATTO 3 customer deliveries, BYD Auto NZ has gone from strength to strength with over 3,500 vehicles sold, a 19% EV market share in NZ, putting BYD in the top two for EV sales in New Zealand. Unsurprisingly the BYD ATTO 3 became the most awarded EV in NZ for 2022, taking home seven COTY awards. Due to the staggering growth of the brand over the past year, the BYD dealer network is expanding yet again announcing three new showrooms to open on the 1st of September 2023.
Warren Willmot, BYD New Zealand Brand Manager says “The further expansion of the BYD dealer network shows the confidence and reputation of the BYD brand, and its remarkable growth since August 2022. BYD New Zealand only partners with carefully selected dealers, who prioritise customer experience. To have such comprehensive coverage, showcases our commitment to bringing a BYD to all NZ vehicle segments and to all New Zealanders.”
