For electric car buyers in New South Wales (NSW) looking to benefit from the state government’s soon-to-be-removed subsidies, BYD’s local distributor EVDirect is offering a lifeline.
Anyone who buys one Atto 3 If you shop at the BYD Megastore in Alexandria, NSW before December 31, 2023, a dedicated team will be available to assist you in claiming the $3,000 rebate.
In addition to the government rebate, BYD is offering an additional $500 rebate to anyone who purchases an Atto 3 SUV and collects delivery before December 31 – bringing the total rebate to $3,500.

The NSW grants have been capped at 25,000 in total since their debut, meaning they may expire before December 31.
Like in Victoria before early end to electric car funding, BYD will prioritize delivery to shoppers in New South Wales who want to take advantage of the discounts. Regardless of where you live, the EVDirect website currently states that you can have an Atto 3 delivered in November or December this year.
The Atto 3 range starts at $48,001 before on-road costs and goes up to $51,011 before on-road costs for the Extended Range.
“What we have found is that many potential EV buyers are unaware that the NSW rebate has been capped at 25,000 nationwide since it was first announced,” said the managing director and CEO of local BYD distributor EVDirect.
“We expect purchasing activity to increase over the next six weeks due to the shutdown. “So we urge those thinking about going electric to get on board quickly to avoid disappointment,” said Todd.
