BYD Seal is available in three varieties. In the Standard Range Edition, the electric car received a 61.4 kWh battery and a 150 kW electric motor. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h will be 7.5 seconds, the cruising range for the CLTC cycle will be 550 km. Long Range Edition received a battery with a capacity of 82.5 kWh. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h will be 5.9 seconds, the power reserve has been increased to 700 km. The 4WD Performance Edition will retain the same 82.5 kWh battery, but the power of the two electric motors will total 390 kW (160 kW on the front axle and 230 kW on the rear axle), acceleration to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds, range will be 650 km.
BYD Seal has a blade battery with internal LFP cells. It is also the first BYD model to feature a Cell-to-Body (CTB) battery, with cells built directly into the case, bypassing modules or battery packs. This should increase the energy density. The term is synonymous with Cell to Chassis (CTC).
The CTB design provides better use of volume, more safety in frontal crashes and double the torsional rigidity. The latter should contribute to better cornering, as should a chassis designed to high standards, with double wishbones up front and five A-arms in the rear.
