Should You Buy BYD M3 in Nepal?
Yes, BYD is a Chinese brand. So, whenever people talk about BYD, they automatically assume that it’s bad and unreliable!
Right now, almost every BYD vehicles are sold to the Government and Tourism Sectors. So, BYD is a popular name in those sectors.
Honestly, Cimex Inc. should be blamed for the lack of promotion. The company has been so focused on those sectors, they have done nothing to improve on their image towards normal consumers.
So, what’s the harm?
That’s why you don’t see many BYD cars in the streets of Kathmandu. Sure, you’ll see some, but not that many.
But, BYD Nepal is trying to move towards improving those shortcomings. As for the question, “Should You Buy?”
I’m not going to be definitive here. But, please visit the nearest BYD showroom. BYD M3 surprised me with sheer built quality and features on offer. And, I’m sure, it will surprise you too!
If you are looking for an environment-friendly vehicle with smooth and powerful performance, BYD vehicles might be a good option to consider.
