BYD Seal

BYD Seal electric sedan is offered in Dynamic, Premium and Performance trims with a claimed range of up to 650 km on a single charge

A few days ago, bookings for the BYD Seal electric sedan officially began and today the prices have been announced. Offered in all three trims just as the global model, the Seal has been priced at Rs. 41 lakh for the base Dynamic trim, Rs. 45.55 lakh for the Premium and Rs. 53 lakh for the range-topping Performance variant (all prices, ex-showroom).

Internationally, the electric sedan rivals top contenders such as the Tesla Model 3 and BMW i4. However, in the Indian market, it will face the well-received Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 considering the price range. What is more impressive about the aggressive pricing of the Seal is that it is brought into the country via the CBU route.

Moreover, buyers who reserve the model before April 30, 2024 will stand a chance to win tickets to watch a UEFA game live. The entry-level Dymanic RWD trim is equipped with an 82.5 kWh battery pack, which enables a claimed driving range of 510 km. With positive reception overseas, the e-sedan has earned its place as one of the finalists in the 2024 World Car of the Year category.
