Fans of BYD can rejoice as the long-awaited BYD Seal will soon be available for booking come January 19.

After more than a year of anticipation since the preview of the fully electric sports sedan during the BYD Atto 3 media launch, Sime Darby Motors (SDM) is set to kick off the excitement by officially opening the order book for the BYD Seal.

The big reveal is not just about the car; SDM is making waves by launching the revamped BYD Malaysia website on the same date, as the post description hints. What makes this occasion even more thrilling is that customers can pre-book the Seal EV directly through the website once it's live.

While the teaser keeps some details under wraps, such as whether there will be a pre-booking fee or perks for early adopters, the industry grapevine suggests that the price of the BYD Seal in Malaysia will hover around the RM200,000 mark, putting it in direct competition with the Tesla Model 3.

The BYD Seal is expected to come in three enticing variants in Malaysia: the base BYD Seal Dynamic, the upgraded BYD Seal Premium, and the powerhouse BYD Seal Performance.

Starting with the base model, the BYD Seal Dynamic boasts a single 150kW (201hp) electric motor, propelling it from 0 to 100km/h in a respectable 7.5 seconds with rear-wheel drive.

The BYD Seal Premium takes things up a notch, featuring a robust 230kW (309hp) electric motor and a quicker 0 to 100km/h sprint time of just 5.9 seconds. For speed enthusiasts, the BYD Seal Performance, the only all-wheel-drive variant, packs a punch with a total output of 390kW (523hp) and can race from 0 to 100km/h in a mere 3.8 seconds.

The battery game is strong with the Seal series. The base Seal Dynamic comes equipped with a 61.44kWh battery pack, while the Seal Premium and Seal Performance boast a larger 82.56kWh battery, contributing to their impressive WLTP-rated ranges of 570km and 520km, respectively.

Charging capabilities also set these variants apart. While all three sport a 7kW onboard AC charger, the DC charging support for the base Dynamic model reaches up to 110kW, with its Performance and Premium counterparts maxing out at a speedy 150kW.
