In 2022, BYD was the first manufacturer in the world to entirely cease production of Internal Combustion Engine vehicles and constructed one of world’s first zero-carbon headquarters by an automobile brand, setting benchmarks for the global transportation industry and low carbon transformation manufacturers. In the same year, BYD passed the ISO 14064 Certification and PAS 2060 Carbon Neutralization Certification in building one of the world’s first headquarters with a zero-carbon campus.

BYD India's current product line in its electric passenger vehicle (EPV) business showcases a range of cutting-edge, eco-friendly vehicles tailored to the Indian market. The key models include the BYD ATTO 3 and the All-New e6.
