BYD Auto India has begun accepting bookings for the Seal EV sedan, though the brand has not revealed the booking amount yet. BYD is leveraging its position as the official partner and official e-mobility partner of the UEFA European Football Championship 2024 (UEFA EURO 2024) by offering customers an opportunity to attend a UEFA match.

  1. BYD Seal customers who book before April 30 may get UEFA tickets
  2. Expected to be priced around Rs 50 lakh
  3. Seal for India will have 82.5kWh battery pack and rear-wheel drive

Those who book the BYD Seal by April 30 will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive scheme – BYD India says a limited number of winners will be selected to receive a complimentary UEFA match ticket and a round-trip flight ticket from India to the match city.

BYD Seal price, India details

BYD Seal prices are expected to be around the Rs 50 lakh, ex-showroom, mark when it launches on March 5. For the Indian market, BYD is offering the Seal EV with an 82.5kWh battery pack, which drives the rear wheels via a 230hp, 360Nm motor; the battery has a range of 570km on the WLTP cycle and can be charged with a 150kW charger from 10-80 percent in 37 minutes. A standard 11kW charger will take 8.6 hours to charge the battery to full. In this form, the 2,055kg Seal sedan sprints to 100kph in 5.9 seconds.

As we’ve reported before, the Seal gets design cues from the Ocean X concept from 2021, and follows BYD’s “ocean aesthetics” design language and ocean-themed nomenclature. On the inside, the BYD Seal gets a rotating, 15.6-inch infotainment in the centre console, with the driver getting a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a heads-up display. There’s more details on the exterior and interior of the Seal, here.

When it arrives, the Seal won’t have any direct rivals, but on price, it’ll go up against the likes of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 in India.
