The BYD Seal (Chinese: 比亚迪海豹; pinyin: Bǐyǎdi Hǎibao) is a battery electric compact executive fastback sedan produced by BYD Auto. It is the second passenger car of BYD’s latest “Ocean Series” of plug-in electric vehicles, after the smaller hatchback BYD Dolphin.
The BYD Seal is built on the e-Platform 3.0, BYD’s new 800-volt car platform, while the design was unveiled as the BYD Ocean-X Concept in September 2021.
There are four models of powertrains offered in China:
The Seal’s top speed is limited to 180 km/h (110 mph), and the 0-100 km/h acceleration is expected to be around 7.5 seconds for the standard models and 3.8 seconds for its 4WD Performance model.
The Seal sports either a 61.4 kWh (221 MJ) or an 82.5 kWh (297 MJ) LiFePO4 blade battery pack, which can be charged by a 220 V AC power source at 7 kW, or a DC fast charger at 110 or 150 kW (depending on the model). The BYD claimed a domestic driving range between 550 and 700 km (340 and 430 mi). The battery pack reportedly can be fast-charged from 30%-80% in 30 minutes, and the car has vehicle-to-grid capability.
