Interior of the BYD Seal DM-i

As we can see in official images, the interior of the Seal DM-i stays in line with spy shots that we have previously covered. Alongside with BYD Seal EV, Dolphin and Seagull, this model adopts the design language called “Ocean Aesthetics”. It comprises distinguishing door handles that look like seashells, a steering wheel, similar to the fish’s tail, and the center console that also looks like a fish’s tail. The interior is finished in a white-purple color scheme.

On the other hand, the Seal DM-i brings some new design features. One of them is a center tunnel. It is quite wide, with two wireless phone charging pads, a small crystal gear selector (BYD calls it “Ocean Heart”), a set of physical buttons and a set of touch buttons. What is more, the center tunnel of the Seal DM-i got a hidden compartment with two cup holders.

  1. Why not state upfront that it’s not a BEV, but a PHEV?
    I wasted a whole 5 min reading till I realised this.
    PHEV’s are 20th century tech which very few people in this space are interested in.
