BYD Seal Teased for Malaysian Market – Local Launch Soon?

It’s no secret that the BYD Seal EV is coming to Malaysia. Now that BYD Malaysia has started teasing the EV on its social media pages, there’s a good chance the electric sedan will be launched in Malaysia very, very soon.

As many as three variants of the Seal are expected to be 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 61.4kWh 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 82.5kWh 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).

Now that BYD Malaysia is teasing the arrival of the BYD Seal, there is a good chance the electric sedan will be launched in Malaysia sometime this month. Rest assured, we will keep a close eye on the local availability of the Seal.
