This name was chosen because the letter U stands for “Utility”, which means “multi-function” in Chinese (Note: The full name of SUV, Sport Utility Vehicles, contains this word, and the full name in Chinese is Sports Utility Vehicles). Judging from the front face of the new car, there are indeed many similarities with the seal car model.
The overall appearance and interior of the Seal U are consistent with those of domestic models, and it also uses a 15.6-inch rotating central control screen and DiLink intelligent network connection system. In terms of power, the new car provides a power system in the European market with a maximum power of 160kW; it is matched with 71.8kWh and 87kWh batteries, and the WLTP working conditions have a range of 420 kilometers and 500 kilometers respectively.
According to BYD’s official Facebook page in Europe, the Frigate 07 models currently on sale in China are expected to be sold in the local market as derivative models of the Tang series. Currently, BYD has launched five models in the European market, namely the Han series, ATTO 3, and Tang series that have already been launched, as well as the Dolphin launched in July and the Seal launched in September.
