BYD introduces Dolphin and Seal electric models in Europe

BYD introduce i modelli elettrici Dolphin e Seal in Europa

Cinese company BYD is ready to introduce in Europe the electric models Dolphin C-segment hatchback and the Seal D-segment sedan.

After launching three full-electric vehicles in Europe: the BYD Atto 3 (C-segment SUV), the BYD Han (E-segment sedan) and the BYD Tang (E-segment SUV), the BYD Dolphin and the BYD Seal are the next full-electric vehicles to be launched in Europe.

The BYD Dolphin is an agile and versatile C-segment hatchback with high levels of practicality, efficiency, accessibility, and a reassuring range. The BYD Seal is a highly stylised, sporty and dynamic D-segment sedan equipped with advanced technology.

The BYD Dolphin and the BYD Seal are the first European models in the Ocean series to adopt the “Ocean Aesthetics” design concept. Both new electric vehicles are built on the state-of-the-art BYD e-Platform 3.0. The front-wheel drive Dolphin features a 60 kW Lithium Iron Phosphate BYD Blade Battery. The BYD Seal has an 82 kWh Blade Battery with rear-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive version.

BYD Dolphin is based on a cell-to-pack (CTP) technology, whilst the BYD Seal benefits from the evolved cell-to-body (CTB) technology. This means that the battery is integrated within the body floor, creating a sandwich-like structure that incorporates the Blade Battery and the tray. The benefit of this advanced CTB technology is that the vehicle’s body is lower for better aerodynamics while increasing body rigidity for enhanced safety, with a design that offers more cabin space due to reduced battery pack volume. The BYD Seal (AWD) also has an 8-in-1 electric powertrain with dual motors providing a combined power of 230/390 kW or 313/531 PS.

Arrival in Europe

The BYD Dolphin will arrive in Europe in June 2023. This practical and appealing C-segment hatchback offers a reassuring WLTP combined range of 427km.

The BYD Seal will be displayed in European BYD stores in September. The sporty D-segment sedan will be on sale with an 82 kWh battery offering a WLTP-range of 520km for the all-wheel-drive configuration and 570km for the rear-wheel-drive version.

While the BYD Seal is a sporty, high-tech vehicle with surprisingly practical characteristics, the BYD Dolphin is positioned in the heart of the C-segment, offering European consumers a practical and accessible full-electric vehicle.

With the BYD Atto 3 C-segment SUV, the BYD Han E-segment sedan, and BYD Tang E-segment SUV, BYD now offers five appealing full-electric vehicles for European customers, with options across multiple segments and various price ranges.
