India-spec BYD Seal EV to offer 570 km of range

The BYD Seal is expected to be priced around Rs 50 lakh and will rival the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

China-based EV maker BYD will soon introduce its electric sedan, the Seal, in the Indian market. While the EV is expected to be launched on March 5, details of the India-spec car have already surfaced online.

Reports suggest that the Seal will be offered with an 82.5 kWh battery pack, offering a range of 570 km (WLTP cycle). This single-motor variant is said to produce 227 BHP and 360 Nm, allowing the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. 

The BYD Seal will support charging speeds of up to 150 kW. The carmaker claims that the battery can be recharged from 10-80% in 37 minutes or 0-100% in 8.6 hours using an 11 kW AC charger.

The BYD Seal features a coupe-like design with an all-glass roof, flush-fitting door handles, split LED headlights with boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, and a full-width LED light bar at the rear. Inside, the BYD Seal comes with a large 15.6-inch central touchscreen infotainment system, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a head-up display.
