The BYD SEAL’s CTB technology integrates the Blade Battery seamlessly into the sedan’s body, forming a strong ‘sandwich’ structure that can achieve torsional rigidity of 40500 N⋅m2/rad. This ground-breaking design not only maximises interior space and enhances aerodynamics but also significantly enhances safety, stability, handling, and performance. The BYD SEAL, equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) at Level 2, represents a pioneering leap in automotive technology. Seamlessly integrating NFC card functionality, this innovative vehicle offers a holistic approach to modern driving. With ADAS Level 2, customers can experience enhanced safety features such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance, while the NFC card integration allows for convenient and secure access to the vehicle's features and services.

The revolutionary Blade Battery, developed in-house by BYD, offers optimized safety, durability, longevity, and space utilization and environmental sustainability. The BYD SEAL is equipped with a high-efficiency heat pump system for efficient battery temperature regulation and low energy consumption, the pure electric sedan also supports VTOL technology, allowing it to be used as a portable power supply for electrical devices with a total output of up to 3,000W. 

The BYD SEAL, available in rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations, will also offer two trim levels with varying power outputs. With these options, the BYD SEAL caters to diverse preferences while prioritizing safety, efficiency, and driving dynamics.
