Sime Darby Motors (SDM) is set to introduce the BYD Seal to the Malaysian market, marking an exciting milestone. The official launch event is scheduled for later this month, offering the public their first opportunity to experience the sporty electric sedan firsthand.

The BYD Seal launch in Malaysia will take place at The Exchange TRX in Kuala Lumpur from February 23 to 25. Beyond being a mere showcase, visitors will have the chance to test drive the new EV themselves.

Interested individuals can sign up via the official mini-site to participate in the test drive event at TRX. The registration form offers five time slots daily, from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM, with the showcase area open until 8:00 PM.

Initial test drive units of the BYD Seal may be limited to selected dealerships, with a shortlist of preferred dealers in the Klang Valley. However, bookings for the new EV can be made at any BYD dealership nationwide.

Pre-bookings for the BYD Seal have been available since 19 January, requiring a refundable booking fee of RM1,000. The vehicle has three variants, catering to various preferences and driving needs.

The BYD Seal Dynamic entry-level variant features a rear-wheel drive configuration with a single 150kW (201hp) electric motor capable of accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds.

For those seeking more power, the BYD Seal Premium offers a more potent 230kW (309hp) electric motor, enabling a quicker century sprint timing of 5.9 seconds.

At the top of the range, the BYD Seal Performance boasts two electric motors and all-wheel drive capability, delivering an impressive total output of 390kW (523hp) and accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds.

Battery capacity varies across the variants, with the base Seal Dynamic equipped with a 61.44kWh battery pack, offering a WLTP-rated range of 460km. The Seal Premium and Seal Performance models feature a larger 82.56kWh battery pack, providing extended ranges of up to 570km.

Charging capabilities also differ, with all variants supporting DC fast charging. Despite variations in charging speed, all three variants require approximately 32 minutes of DC charging time from 30% to 80% battery capacity.

Excitement is building as the BYD Seal prepares to make its mark on the Malaysian electric vehicle market, offering drivers a blend of performance, efficiency, and advanced technology.
