Given that its 82.5 kWh battery can reportedly return a claimed 570 km, the BYD Seal EV is expected to be sold in its entry-level RWD variant.

BYD unveiled the Seal electric sedan in Malaysia just a few days ago, and on March 5, 2024, it will make its debut in India. There are three varieties of the five-seater accessible worldwide, but India will probably only get the standard RWD model because the Premium and Performance models won’t be offered, at least not at first. It will share many characteristics with the Atto 3 and be imported into the nation through the CBU route. 

The Atto 3’s e-platform 3.0 serves as the foundation for the BYD Seal. A Blade-enabled 82.5 kWh LFP battery pack will be included in the India-spec variant. It is paired with a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that produces 360 Nm of peak torque and 230 PS when positioned on the rear axle. It takes 5.9 seconds to go from zero to 100 kmph with the help of this combination.

The WLTP cycle claims that the electric automobile can travel 570 km on a single charge. It weighs slightly more than two tonnes. With a 400-liter boot and an extra 50-liter of room in the frunk, it provides plenty of storage. Moreover, it has a sophisticated 800-volt electrical architecture, which improves its performance and efficiency.

Twin electric motors are used by the BYD Seal in the Performance model to produce a combined power output of 530 PS and torque production of 670 Nm. It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and is said to have a 520 km range on a single charge. The 7 kW AC Type 2 charger that comes with both models takes about 15.2 hours to fully charge in Malaysia.

 A 150 kW DC fast charger will also be available for quicker on-the-go charging, cutting the time it takes to charge a battery from 10 to 80 percent to just 37 minutes. When the Seal arrives, it will compete with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, and its ex-showroom pricing is probably going to be in the region of Rs. 50 lakh.

Packed with high-end features, the interior includes nine airbags, a heads-up display (HUD), two wireless charging pads, a 12.2-speaker Dynaudio sound system, a 10.25-inch digital instrument console, a 15.6-inch central touchscreen infotainment system with customizable orientation changes, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
