BYD Seal Malaysian Launch Set for 23 – 25 February 2024 – Test Drive Registration Open

Just a few weeks ago, pre-bookings of the BYD Seal were open in Malaysia, and the company will be introducing its latest EV on our shores next week. The launch is set for 23 to 25 February 2024 at The Exchange TRX in Kuala Lumpur, and test drives of the electric sedan will be held there too.

As expected, as many as three variants of the Seal are offered for the Malaysian market. There’s the Dynamic Standard Range base model, the mid-tier Premium Extended Range version, and the range-topping Performance AWD variant.

What differentiates the three models of the Seal are performance, range, and charging speeds. The Dynamic SR, for one, features a single electric motor on the rear wheels that does 204PS and 310Nm of torque. It also has a 61.44kWh battery that offers up to 460km of WLTP range with support for 110kW DC charging.

A tier up is the Premium ER Seal. While it has a similar single rear motor setup as the base model, it has higher outputs of 313PS and 360Nm of torque. Paired with a higher capacity 82.56kWh battery, it can travel up to 570km (WLTP) on a single charge. It can do 150kW DC charging as well, allowing the large battery to be charged from 10-80% in 37 minutes.

Last but not least is the Seal in the highest-end Performance AWD trim. This model has a dual-motor setup with a combined output of 530PS and 670Nm of torque, allowing it to go from 0-100kmph in only 3.8 seconds. It has the same 82.5kWh battery (and 150kW DC charging rate) as the Premium ER too, but given the extra performance, the range is reduced to 520km (WLTP).

The BYD Seal is set to be launched in Malaysia next week on 23 to 25 February 2024 at The Exchange TRX, Kuala Lumpur; you can book a test drive slot for the EV on any of the three days right here. Pre-bookings of the Seal are also open in Malaysia now for RM1,000 through the company’s official website.
