This electric SUV comes to tease Tesla Model Y -

The BYD Seal U is a D-segment electric SUV with a length of 4.78 meters. That is about as long as a Tesla Model Y (4.75 meters). The range is also comparable: the BYD Seal U can travel up to 500 kilometers on a full battery, the Tesla Model Y up to 533 kilometers. Both are suitable for five occupants and both are equipped with a large central display of around 15 inches.

The Tesla Model Y stands for 46,990 euros in the price list. It is not yet known what the BYD Seal U will cost. The electric SUV will first make its European debut at the IAA car fair in early September. By the way, it is no longer held in Frankfurt, but in Munich.

The letter U in the model name stands for 'Utility', roughly translated 'useful/usable'. BYD says his new electric SUV is 'maximum versatility' and the luggage compartment is 'extensive'. The number of liters is still a guess. BYD also talks about 'a very high level of safety'.

BYD Seal U range

The range of 500 kilometers is part of the battery pack of 87 kWh. Those who are satisfied with a lesser range can go for the version with 71.8 kWh. Then the BYD Seal U range is 420 kilometers. The versions are called Design and Comfort respectively. Fast charging is possible with 115 kW (Design) or 140 kW (Comfort).

The BYD Seal U is equipped with a 218 hp electric motor that drives the front wheels. That is not at all in line with the Tesla Model Y, which is basically rear-wheel drive and has a shovel more power, namely 347 hp. The Tesla Model Y accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. Its Chinese competitor takes just under 10 seconds to do this.

BYD Seal U delivery time

The BYD Seal U is expected on the Dutch market in the first quarter of 2024. It is the third electric SUV that BYD offers in our country. The others are the smaller ones Atto 3 WORLD and the bigger one BID Tongsan electric car with 7 seats.
