The BYD Seal AWD has a maximum power of 390KW (530hp). The total torque is 670nm. The 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) takes 3,8 seconds. The top speed is 180 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 85,4kWh and a net capacity of 82,5kWh, meaning you have a 2,9kWh buffer for protection. (3,4%). The Lithium-Ion battery uses LFP technology. This has some benefits and disadvantages from the typical NCA/NCM batteries.
The WLTP range is 520 km (323 mi). The consumption is 15,9kWh/100km for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 150kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 64 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 35 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 4% to 59% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 92kW. Each charge session would take 29 minutes and 27 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 25kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 10 minutes to drive. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 8% to 59%. The total time lost for charging will be 110 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 7 hours and 30 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the right rear side. This makes it easy for charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
