Spec comparison: BYD Atto 3 Vs MG ZS EV VS Hyundai Kona
The introduction of the BYD Atto 3 means that we have another electric SUV in the mix. The MG ZS EV has been long-standing in this segment and even longer than that has been the Hyundai Kona. While we are still unsure about the Atto 3's pricing, we are pretty sure that will be in the similar ballpark as the other 2 on this list. Let's take a closer look at how these 3 SUV's take on each other in the electric space.

The BYD also looks the sharpest with its sleek design and bold styling. The MG ZS EV also has the looks with sharp lines but that front fascia might throw some off. As for the Hyundai Kona, there isn't much to say, as its been here for a while and its all very bulky looking.
