SEAL EV 

BYD-Seal-EV

BYD Auto is set to enhance its presence in the Indian market by introducing its third model, the Seal all-electric sedan. Scheduled for launch on March 5, the Seal EV will join BYD’s existing India lineup, which includes the Atto 3 SUV and e6 MPV. The Seal was recently spotted during testing on the outskirts of Chennai. Originally unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo in early 2023, the vehicle was initially slated for release in October 2023. However, due to prevailing geopolitical tensions between India and China, BYD’s ambitious plans to establish a mega factory in India faced obstacles, resulting in a delay in the Seal’s launch in the country.

Let’s quickly have a look at the key specifications of BYD seal, and see how exactly Seal EV may look like:

DESIGN AND LOOKS 

The Seal showcases BYD’s distinctive “ocean aesthetics” design language, complemented by its captivating ocean-themed nomenclature. Noteworthy features include a coupe-like all-glass roof, seamlessly integrated flush-fitting door handles, four boomerang-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), a distinctive split headlamp design, and a rear adorned with a full-width LED light bar. These design elements are anticipated to resonate well with Indian consumers, especially amidst the renewed interest in sedan sales within the Indian market. The ocean-inspired design philosophy of the Seal is poised to create a significant impact and garner attention from prospective buyers.

The cabin is equipped with tech-savvy features, including a digital instrument cluster and a head-up display that enhances the overall driving experience. Notable highlights include a central rotary knob for easy access to drive modes, dual wireless charging pads for added convenience, and strategically placed central air conditioning vents. The user-friendly design is further complemented by standard controls for the audio system, a heated windshield, and door handle-integrated speakers – a familiar touch borrowed from the Atto 3, ensuring a harmonious blend of innovation and practicality. 

PRICING

Dealers have indicated that deliveries of the Seal EV will kick off shortly after the price announcement on March 5. While the Seal doesn’t have direct competitors, its price positions it against noteworthy contenders such as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SUV and Kia’s EV6 crossover in the electric vehicle market.
