BYD Seagull: Electric Car Trademarked in India, Emerging as a Tiago EV Rival

BYD, the world’s leading electric car manufacturer, is making significant strides in the Indian electric vehicle (EV) market. Mahindra has revealed its plans to power upcoming electric SUVs with BYD’s renowned Blade battery cells, indicating the growing demand for BYD’s EV technology in India. One of BYD’s promising offerings that has generated considerable interest globally is the BYD Seagull, known for its exceptional value-for-money proposition in the EV segment. Trademarked in India, the BYD Seagull has the potential to disrupt the Indian EV market with its competitive pricing and impressive specifications.

In terms of pricing, the BYD Seagull was initially launched in China with prices ranging between CNY 78,000 and CNY 95,800, approximately translating to Rs. 9.4 lakh and Rs. 11.4 lakh, respectively. However, the dynamic pricing landscape of the Chinese EV market suggests that actual retail prices could be even more competitive. Beyond its attractive pricing, the BYD Seagull boasts a 38 kWh battery pack, delivering an impressive claimed range of 405 km. Powering the Seagull is a 70 kW (94 bhp) motor with a top speed of 130 km/h, making it a practical and efficient electric car.

What sets the BYD Seagull apart is its practicality, featuring a five-door layout with ample rear seat space. Its dimensions put it in direct competition with India’s best-selling electric car, the Tata Tiago EV. In terms of design and features, the BYD Seagull doesn’t disappoint, offering projector headlights, connected LED tail lights, stylish alloy wheels, and rear disc brakes. Inside the cabin, it’s a tech marvel with a 5-inch instrument console and a generous 12.8-inch main infotainment screen, along with a plethora of features that enhance the driving experience.

While the trademarking of the BYD Seagull in India doesn’t guarantee an immediate launch, it does open up exciting possibilities for the world’s largest EV manufacturer to explore India’s burgeoning EV market. With a focus on affordability and technological innovation, BYD’s Ocean Series, including the Seagull, Sea Lion, Dolphin, and Seal sedan, could reshape the Indian EV landscape and further strengthen BYD’s foothold in the country. The Seagull’s e-platform 3.0 skateboard could pave the way for more future BYD offerings in India, ushering in a new era of electric mobility.
