Chinese auto manufacturer BYD has introduced its new electric luxury sedan BYD Seal at the Auto Expo 2023. The company, which already sells two electric cars in India, has showcased the sedan for the first time in the country.

The BYD Seal has a smooth and sleek design and is built on the e-Platform 3.0. Due to this, the car has an “excellent aero drag coefficient” of 0.219Cd. It features the ‘ocean aesthetics’ design language and has features like split headlamp design, full-width LED light bar at the rear, all-glass roof, four boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, and flush-fitting door handles.

In terms of size, the BYD Seal is 1,875 mm wide, 4,800 mm long, and 1,460 mm in height. The Seal draws its power from BYD’s Blade Battery and uses the Cell to Body technology, which integrates the battery into the vehicle.

The sedan is offered in two battery pack options that power its electric motors. The 61.4 kWh battery pack can give a range of 550 km to the vehicle while the claimed range for the 82.5 kWh battery unit variant is up to 700 km. With the bigger battery pack, the BYD Seal can reach 0 to 100 kmph in mere 3.8 seconds. BYD says it has 50:50 golden axle load distribution ratio which improves the performance of the vehicle significantly.

The e-Platform 3.0 of the BYD Seal integrates the drive, braking and steering system and offers a smooth driving experience. It has designed exclusively by BYD for pure electric vehicles and features shorter overhangs and longer wheelbase. This allows for the expansion of passenger space and improvement in the vehicle’s aerodynamic design.
