BYD unveils its electric sedan Seal at the Auto Expo 2023.

Along with unveiling Seal, BYD also presented the limited edition ATTO 3 in its iconic color Forest Green at Auto Expo 2023.

Chinese EV manufacturer BYD presented its new luxury electric sedan BYD Seal at Auto Expo 2023. After the e6 and ATTO 3, Seal will be BYD’s third passenger EV in India. The company also unveiled the limited edition of ATTO 3 in its iconic color Forest Green.

Seal is based on BYD’s born EV platform (e-Platform 3.0) and is equipped with Blade Battery. Seal is the first EV to use BYD’s CTB (cell to body) technology, which allows the battery to be integrated into the body (the battery becomes an integrated component of the chassis), substantially improving vehicle safety, stability, handling, and performance.

The CTB technology has helped the car to achieve a breakthrough in the structural strength of the battery system through the cellular structure, which can withstand a 50-ton heavy-duty truck rolling test. Because of this technology, the torsional stiffness of the whole vehicle has doubled to above 40,500 Nm/rad, and the safety of the interior structure of the vehicle is increased by 50% for front impact and by 45% for side impact. The CTB technology also gives BYD Seal an ideal 50:50 axle load distribution, which makes the vehicle pass the moose test at 83.5 km/h.

With an aero drag coefficient of merely 0.219 Cd, BYD Seal hits 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and also has an ultra-long range of up to 700 km on a single charge. BYD Seal will be launched in India by Q4 2023.

BYD also debuted the Limited Edition ATTO 3 in an exclusive Forest Green shade. Only 1,200 units of this Limited Edition will be available in India at Rs. 34.49 lakhs (ex-showroom).

ATTO 3, with an NEDC-certified range of 480 km and an ARAI-tested range of 521 km, was launched in India in November 2022 at Rs. 33.99 lahks and garnered around 2,000 bookings to date. The deliveries of ATTO 3 in India also start in January 2023.

BYD India is also expanding its retail network. The company aims to expand to at least 53 showrooms by the end of 2023 and sell 15,000 passenger EV units in India this year.
