BYD will exhibit a wide range of vehicles at Auto Expo 2023 even if a number of other manufacturers have chosen to skip the event. Rumor has it that the brand-new Seal sedan, made by Chinese electric car maker BYD or Build Your Dreams, will premiere at the Auto Expo in India.

The Seal has several cutting-edge features, such as flush door handles, split headlights, and a full-width LED light bar at the back. It also has a glass top like a coupe. The BYD Seal, like the Atto 3, features a rotating 15.6-inch infotainment display in the centre console, as well as a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster for the driver.

The primary touchscreen is surrounded by air conditioning vents, while a scroll wheel and driving mode choices are located below it. Two wireless charging pads and normal controls for features like the heated windscreen and audio volume are also included on the centre console.

The Seal is powered by a choice of two battery packs (one at 61.4kWh and the other at 82.5kWh), both of which are based on BYD's e-Platform 3.0. Comparing the two on the China Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC-cycle), the former has a range of 550 km while the latter can go 700 km.
