517 HP and a range of up to 700 km for $40,000. Electric BYD Seal presented in China, which is somewhat better than Tesla Model 3 and Porsche Taycan – News

The Chinese company BYD has completely declassified the Seal electric car: it has revealed specifications and prices, and has also started accepting pre-orders. It should be said right away that Seal was a hit: in just six hours, 22,637 cars were ordered. The result is no worse than that of some Cybertruck.

However, Seal will compete with other electric vehicles. For example, the same Tesla Model 3. And here on the side of the Chinese car there is an advantage in terms of dimensions: it is 106 mm longer, 26 mm wider and 17 mm higher than the Model 3. The wheelbase is 45 mm longer. Dimensions BYD Seal: 4800 x 1875 x 1460 mm, wheelbase – 2920 mm.

BYD Seal is based on the BYD e-platform 3.0 platform, the key feature of which is CTB (Cell to Body) technology. This means that the battery is integrated into the body structure. In particular, the cells are located under the floor. BYD says that it is completely safe: the battery can withstand a pressure of 50 tons.

Another notable technology is iTAC. It is an intelligent torque control system. Due to her, the car passed the “moose test” at a speed of 83.5 km / h. At about the same speed, the McLaren 675LT supercar passes this test.

Outwardly, the BYD Seal resembles the Tesla Model 3, and for good reason: it has well-developed aerodynamics. Aerodynamic drag coefficient Cd – 0.219. This is even less than the Porsche Taycan.

BYD Seal is available in four versions. Basic – with a single electric motor on the rear axle, a traction battery with a capacity of 61.44 kWh with a cruising range of 550 km. The price is $31,890. The second configuration is no different technically, but due to different options it is more expensive – $ 33,840.

The third BYD Seal is rear-wheel drive with a 82.56 kWh traction battery that provides a range of 700 km. The price of this option is $39,380. At the top of the range is the all-wheel drive BYD Seal with a power plant with a capacity of 517 hp, the same battery with a capacity of 82.56 kWh, but the power reserve is already less here – 650 km. The price is $43,430. By comparison, a rear-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 costs $43,600 in China. Seal is not only bigger, but also cheaper.
