Mark your calendars for March 5 as the BYD Seal All-Electric Sedan makes its much-awaited entry into the Indian market.

BYD Seal All-Electric Sedan to Make Grand Entrance in India on March 5

Key Highlights:

  • The Seal which is supposed to arrive in India will be equipped with 82.5kWh battery with a claimed 700 km of range
  • BYD Seal to be competitively priced in the Rs 50 lakh (ex-showroom) range
  • Seal EV will mark the third addition to BYD's portfolio in India

BYD Auto, the renowned Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer, is gearing up to expand its footprint in the Indian market with the launch of its latest offering, the BYD Seal all-electric sedan. Scheduled to debut on March 5, the Seal EV marks the third addition to BYD's burgeoning portfolio in India, joining the ranks of the BYD e6 and the Atto 3 SUV.

Even before its official unveiling, enthusiasm for the BYD Seal is palpable, with reports emerging that dealers across India have begun unofficially accepting bookings for the highly anticipated sedan. The buzz around the Seal was further fueled when sightings of the vehicle undergoing testing surfaced in Chennai.

The Seal: Features and Specs

Design: The Seal sports BYD’s “ocean aesthetics” design language and boasts of an ocean-themed name. Its coupe-like all-glass roof, flush-fitting door handles, four boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, split headlamp design and a full-width LED light bar at the rear all should attract Indian buyers.

Dimensions: Measuring 4,800mm long, 1,875mm wide and 1,460mm tall, with a 2,920mm long wheelbase, the low-slung sedan has a 400-litre boot, and a 53-litre frunk.

Battery: The battery, which has BYD’s patented ‘Blade Battery’ tech and can be charged at speeds of up to 150kW, will send power to two motors – one on each axle – that produce a combined 530hp and 670 Nm of torque.

Performance: BYD claims a 0-100kph time of 3.8 seconds for the AWD Seal, and a top speed of 180 kmph, which is quite good for a car that weighs about 2.2 tonnes. It is likely to come with dual electric setup enabling All Wheel Drive (AWD) capabilities.

BYD Seal: What to Expect?

If we look at the presence of Seal sedan in the international market, the car is available in two battery pack options- a 82.5 kWh battery which claims 700 km of range and a 61.4 kWh battery which can give a range of 500 km. However, the Seal which is supposed to arrive in India is the Seal with an 82.5kWh battery with a claimed 700 km of range.

BYD Seal Price Estimate and Potential Rivals in India

While official pricing details are yet to be revealed, industry insiders anticipate the BYD Seal to be competitively priced in the Rs 50 lakh (ex-showroom) range. With deliveries slated to commence shortly after the official launch, the Seal is poised to carve a niche for itself in the Indian electric vehicle market.

Although the Seal faces no direct competitors in its segment, its price point positions it as a formidable contender against established electric offerings such as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SUV and Kia EV6 crossover.

CarBike360 Says

As consumers increasingly gravitate towards sustainable mobility solutions, the BYD Seal emerges as a compelling option for discerning Indian buyers seeking cutting-edge technology and uncompromising performance in their electric vehicles.

As the countdown to the BYD Seal's official launch on March 5 begins, anticipation continues to mount, signalling a promising new chapter in India's electric vehicle revolution.
