BYD Seal Atto 4 electric sports sedan


Recommended Posts

(edited)

BYD is a strong EV player these days. Their flagship Han is selling like hot cakes. Other than EVs, their hybrid are also very impressive. With a new 1.5 Turbo hybrid engine, can achieve 0 to 100 in 3.7s, claimed to deliver 1000km mileage. Good stuff really.

China doing what they do best, copying

According to the source, this can do 0-100 in 3.9 s

 

This time, especially BYD, they need not copy because they hired ex-Mercedes and ex-Audi designers and engineers for the styling, suspension for ride and handling job.

Why does anyone want to copy a tesla design? Sounds like lazy writing.

The best tesla cars are just plain Janes, vanilla ice cream. And some look like dog poop.

Only Model S looks OK. The rest like melted poo. 

Cybertruck is not out so count that out.

BYD has got a variety of range from small hatch, MPV, to mid size, and premium, not to mention a couple of SUVs targeting different categories of customer. Their Han model can be considered as their flagship which is a premium model. 

Seal which is targeting Tesla model 3 is a rank below the Han. Can consider it as an mid executive model.

Facelifted BYD Han DM-i

Side track abit to BYD Han. The facelifted model had just been launched. Apparently there are two variant, DM-i and DM-p. Both are 1.5 Turbo Hybrid models but the DM-p bias towards performance and 0 - 100km/h is stated to take only 3.7s. Have to wait for actual POV reviews to find out more. Some Audi DNA can be seen, especially the headlights and grille and some S-class DNA in the interior because ex-Audi and Mercedes designers now work for BYD.
