BYD Seal vs Hyundai Ioniq 5 vs BMW i4

The premium electric car segment in India has just been shaken up with the arrival of the BYD Seal electric sedan. First showcased at Auto Expo 2023, the Seal has finally been launched in the country with a highly competitive price tag. Before we discuss the numbers, you need to know that the BYD Seal is a fairly well-equipped model with the top variant offering a dual-motor setup and enough performance to do the 0-100 kmph sprint in under 4 seconds. Here’s how its variant-wise prices compare to its closest rivals and alternatives:

Features Overview

BYD Seal cabin

As a premium offering, the BYD Seal has a lot to offer in terms of comfort and technology. It comes with a panoramic glass roof, dual-zone climate control, a 15.6-inch rotating touchscreen infotainment system and 10.25-inch digital driver’s display.

As a 5-star safety rated EV by Euro NCAP (2023), it comes with plenty of safety equipment too. The India-spec BYD Seal gets 9 airbags, a 360-degree camera, and a suite of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS).

Worth It?

While BYD has certainly impressed us with the aggressive pricing for its flagship offering in India, we have yet to experience the Seal electric sedan for ourselves. So stay tuned to CarDekho for our first drive review and more content around the BYD Seal in the coming weeks.
