Calling all electric car enthusiasts! The highly anticipated BYD Seal is officially setting sail for Indian shores, hitting the market on March 5, 2024. This sleek and feature-packed sedan promises exhilarating performance, cutting-edge technology, and a touch of sporty flair – all at an attractive price point. Let’s dive deep into what the BYD Seal has to offer.

Bold Design with Hidden Gems

The BYD Seal boasts a clean and aerodynamic design that turns heads. The U-shaped LED headlights, connected LED taillights, and aerodynamic details on the bumpers exude a sporty confidence. Look closer, and you’ll find quirky elements, like the dot matrix LED pattern in the taillights, adding a unique touch. The smoothly sloped roofline and 19-inch alloy wheels complete the modern fastback look.

Hidden tech gem: The BYD Seal utilizes Cell to Body (CTB) technology, integrating the battery pack into the frame for improved handling and dynamics.

Luxurious Interior Overflowing with Tech

Step inside the BYD Seal, and you’re greeted by a dual-tone dashboard and sporty seats. The main attraction? A massive 15.6-inch rotational touchscreen infotainment system, bigger than anything offered by its competitors. Indulge in premium features like a 12-speaker Dynaudio sound system, a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, and a panoramic sunroof. Comfort is key with features like 8-way adjustable driver’s seat with memory, ventilated and heated front seats, and dual zone AC.

Tech bonus: The BYD Seal goes beyond entertainment with V2L (Vehicle to Load) functionality, allowing you to power external devices using the car’s battery.

Unleash the Thrill: Power and Range Options

The BYD Seal packs a punch with two powertrain options, both featuring an 82.5 kWh battery pack:

  • Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD): 530 PS maximum power, 670 Nm torque, 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and a claimed range of up to 700 km (WLTP-rated).
  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD): 484 PS maximum power, 670 Nm torque, 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and a claimed range of up to 650 km (WLTP-rated).
