Chinese auto major BYD (Build Your Dreams) launches its new Seal Electric vehicle (EV) in India on March 5, 2024. Unveiled at the 2023 Auto Expo, the Sedan Seal EV marks BYD’s third product in the country, following the all-electric e6 and Atto 3. The sedan Seal EV inherits design cues from the Ocean X concept from 2021 and follows BYD’s “ocean aesthetics” design language and ocean-themed nomenclature. 

Let’s quickly have a look at all the important details of BYD SEAL EV: 


The design inspiration for the Seal electric vehicle is drawn from the 2021 Ocean X Face concept, aligning seamlessly with BYD’s distinctive “ocean aesthetics” design philosophy and its ocean-themed nomenclature. Noteworthy features of the Seal include a panoramic all-glass roof resembling a coupe, seamlessly integrated door handles, and four boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights. The split headlamp design and a rear-end adorned with a full-width LED light bar add to the vehicle’s visual appeal. Embodying a coupe-like silhouette, the Seal boasts a distinctive front, characterized by sleek LED headlights with expansive C-shaped DRLs that extend to the bumper. The bonnet’s sharp creases further contribute to its muscular and dynamic appearance.


The BYD Seal EV interior defines luxury with its expansive and comfortable design. Inspired by Thaumas, the Greek god of the sea, the Thaumas Black Interior sets the tone for sophistication. The bolstered sports seats offer heating, ventilation, and electric adjustment and also have memory drive settings, ensuring a personalized driving experience. In the rear row, a spacious 3-seat design with a continuous flat floor and 60/40 split folding seats adds versatility.

One of the standout features is the Crystal Gearshift, known as the Heart of the Ocean, adding a touch of elegance to the driving experience. The interior further impresses with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a 4-way Lumbar Power Adjustment, enhancing comfort. The silver-plated Panoramic Glass Roof brings in natural light, creating an airy atmosphere. Technological advancements include an advanced intelligence cockpit with a unique[first in segment] self-adaptive rotating screen (15.6 inches), a full LCD Screen Instrument (10.25 inches), and a wireless charging dual pad. The inclusion of a windshield heads-up display and an industry-leading Intelligent Voice Command system further positions the BYD Seal EV as a frontrunner in the realm of electric vehicle interiors.


The BYD Seal prioritizes safety with a comprehensive array of features. Boasting a robust protective system, the vehicle is equipped with a total of 9 airbags, ensuring occupants are surrounded by multiple layers of safety. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are enhanced through a 5-millimeter wave radar and a front-view camera, providing critical information for a secure driving experience. The safety suite extends to include blind-spot detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive control, door open warning, lane departure warning, and lane departure prevention. Additionally, the Rest Cross Traffic Brake further enhances safety during maneuvers. A notable highlight is the introduction of the exclusive i-Tac system, making the BYD Seal the first model from BYD to feature this cutting-edge technology, underscoring the brand’s commitment to innovation and passenger safety.


The BYD Seal offers three distinct variants, each featuring a range of powertrain options to cater to diverse driving preferences. The initial two variants operate on a rear-wheel-drive system, providing an efficient and dynamic driving experience. In contrast, the third variant adopts a dual-motor configuration, delivering all-wheel drive capabilities for enhanced traction and control. To simplify the understanding of the Seal’s powertrain options, a comprehensive table is provided below:

For a comprehensive charge using a regular 11kW AC charger, it takes approximately 8.6 hours to go from 0-100 percent. Notably, the Seal supports Vehicle to Load (V2L) charging, adding versatility for activities like camping and outdoor use.

BYD stands behind the Seal’s longevity, offering a robust warranty package. The battery is covered by an 8-year/160,000 km warranty, ensuring sustained performance over an extended period. Additionally, the motor and motor controller unit benefit from an 8-year/150,000 km warranty, providing customers with confidence in the durability and reliability of the electric vehicle’s critical components.
