Cat A BYD Seal Dynamic Launched In Singapore

The new Cat A variant, dubbed the ‘BYD Seal Dynamic 100kW’, has kicked off a 100-hour sales marathon that introduces enticing deals for prospective customers.

The BYD Seal launched with much fanfare last September, and now it is back, with a Cat A COE friendly demeanour. Dubbed the BYD Seal Dynamic 100kW, it was launched next to BYD’s own automotive lifestyle concept store, BYD by SevenDaze.

This variant will be replacing the original Dynamic variant, which also means that every BYD passenger-car model in Singapore can now be snagged with a Cat A COE.

The only significant change from the Cat B Seals is the power. The new BYD Seal Dynamic 100kW features a single motor that sends 100kW (134bhp) to the rear wheels. If you’re doing the math at home, it is 50kW (67bhp) less than its predecessor.

This translates to a century sprint of 10 seconds flat, compared to the previous 7.5 seconds. At least the torque figure remains the same at 310Nm.

Otherwise, it’s all familiar territory. This Seal still boasts the same 61.44kWh battery, offering up to 460km of range and supporting quick charging. With a 110kW DC charger, you can juice up from 30% to 80% in just 32 minutes.

In terms of features, this variant continues to impress with its generosity. The 15.6-inch rotating infotainment touchscreen and the 10.25-inch digital driver’s display are still here, as are the ventilated front seats with electronic adjustment.

Safety is ensured with a full suite of driver assistance features, a nine-airbag system, and a panoramic glass roof. Plus, its operating system supports over-the-air updates, keeping your car’s tech up to date.

The launch also marked the start of the mega ‘BYD 100 Hour Sale’ campaign, offering limited-time deals across all models with discounts and benefits worth up to $20,000.

Snap up a Seal Dynamic 100kW, and you automatically enter a sure-win lucky draw offering discounts of up to $33,000. The earlier you buy, the more chances you get to win.

At the event, Mr James Ng, Managing Director of BYD Singapore and the Philippines, highlighted the growing enthusiasm for electric vehicles in Singapore and teased the launch of three to four new models in the coming months.

This includes the anticipated arrival of BYD’s luxury sub-brand, Denza, by Q4 2024.

Ms Adelene Tan, Sales and Marketing Director at Vantage Automotive Limited, expressed excitement about the new variant, revealing that customer demand for a Category A-friendly Seal had been strong since its initial launch. “We listened hard and worked really hard to make this new variant possible,” she said.

Currently, BYD holds the title of Singapore’s bestselling brand, with the Atto 3 reigning as the bestselling model of 2024, based on LTA’s latest figures for authorised dealer car registrations.

The BYD Seal Dynamic 100kW is now available in Singapore, with prices starting from $169,888 (including COE)
