BYD Seal Design

The Seal sedan was previously showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo, where we loved its design and the swag it packs. It borrows key design cues from the BYD Ocean X concept car and looks brilliant in flesh. It is based on the ‘Ocean Aesthetics’ design language. Key design highlights include a coupe-like roof line, flush door handles, clean lines, boomerang-shaped quad LED DRLs, LED headlamps, and magnificent light bars.

In its dimensions, the BYD Seal is 4,800mm long, 1,875mm wide, and 1,460mm in height. It rides on beautiful 19-inch wheels and is available in four different exterior paints- Arctic Blue, Aurora White, Atlantis Grey, and Cosmos Black.
