Coming to Malaysia alongside the BYD Atto 3 will be the BYD e6 MPV, and like its SUV stablemate this is also a pure electric vehicle (EV). We reached out to our source within the company's Malaysian office to dig a little further about the car, and this is what we know.

According to them, the e6 will be available in just one variant. Then again, it promises a pretty impressive range (522 km on the WLTP test cycle) from its 71.7 kWh LFP Blade battery, with 95 PS and 180 Nm output from its front-mounted electric motor.

Approximate pricing starts from RM 160k. Our source also mentioned that the specs will be "quite similar to Singapore's", so expect things like power-adjustable leather seats and a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen that channels sound to a Focal-supplied audio setup.

Exterior features include LED daytime running lights and LED rear combination lamps, and if the unit we saw a while ago was any indication, 17 inch-wheels can be expected.
