Compared to the regular version, the Seal Champion Edition adds leather seats, a leather steering wheel, rear privacy glass, and armrest lifting cup holders. The Seals Champion 650km four-wheel drive performance version comes standard with a light-sensing canopy (optional for 700km range models), iTAC Marlboro silent tires, and 19-inch five-spoke double wishbone wheels. The four-wheel drive version comes standard with a suede interior, previously only available as a kit version interior.

In terms of appearance, there is not much change. The Seal Champion Edition comes in four body colors: North Ice Blue, Aurora White, Dark Sky Black, and Atlantis Grey, as well as Wind Curly Grass Green and Rosemary Grey as options. Regarding interior color matching, the Jaguar Champions Edition offers Taomas black and Pentos black exclusively for the 650km four-wheel drive performance version, further enhancing its sporty attributes.

Editor’s Comment

BYD Seal sold over 10,000 vehicles per month at the end of 2022. However, they were hit to some extent after the price reductions of the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y in January. In recent months, the monthly sales have been between 6,000 and 7,000. BYD hopes to boost sales and cope with the price war by lowering the price of the new Seal.
