At Auto Expo 2023, BYD’s exhibition space is divided into 4 zones, which not only showcase current and new vehicle products, but also technological innovations that significantly improve vehicle performance and safety. These newly unveiled products and innovation displays reflect the India-specific theme of the convention: Technological Innovations for a Better Life.

OFFER SEAL

The BYD Seal is one of BYD’s latest luxury sedans equipped with the acclaimed EV platform (e-Platform 3.0) and the revolutionary ultra-safe Blade Battery. It is also the first vehicle to feature cell-to-body (CTB) technology, which significantly improves vehicle safety, stability and handling, resulting in improved overall vehicle performance.

The BYD seal supported by CTB withstands the 50-ton truck roll test. Due to the integration of battery and body, the torsional stiffness of the entire vehicle is doubled to over 40,500 Nm/°. The safety of the vehicle’s internal structure is increased by 50% in frontal collisions and by 45% in side collisions. Since the CTB technology enables the BYD Seal to have an ideal 50:50 axle load distribution, the vehicle passed the moose test with a record speed of 83.5 km/h. With its low-slung design, the drag coefficient reached only 0.219 cd, enabling the BYD Seal to reach 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. The model also has an extremely long range of up to 700 km on a single charge, which reduces the range of electric cars.

BYD ATTO 3 Limited Edition

During the event, the limited edition BYD ATTO 3 in the exclusive Forest Green color also uses e-Platform 3.0 and the ultra-safe Blade Battery. Only 1,200 copies of this limited edition are available in India for Rs. 34.49 lakh (ex-showroom).

BYD ATTO 3 has been awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, Europe’s leading independent safety assessment programme. The e-SUV has an 8-year or 1.6 lakh kilometer warranty (whichever comes first) for the battery and a corresponding 8-year or 1.5 lakh kilometer warranty for the engine and motor controller. In addition, BYD offers a basic warranty of 6 years or 1.5 lakh kilometers.
