As the name suggests, the Seal U DM-i takes many design cues from BYD’s prestige saloon, the Seal. Expect a similar front end with sleek LED headlights and the iconic BYD full-width lightbar in the rear.

Inside, there’s the rotating touchscreen that BYD has become known for and plenty of space for occupants and luggage. Ambient lighting is prevalent throughout the cabin and the gear shifter is crystal-like, exuding luxury at every point.


The Seal U DM-i will be available in two trims: the Seal U DM-i Boost and the Seal U DM-i Design. Compare the two trims below:

Why choose
the Seal U DM-i?

The Seal U not only looks striking and unique but is packed with features to make every journey a dream.

You’ll benefit from front heated and ventilated seats, a panoramic roof, ambient lighting, heads-up display and NVH technology – that’s Noise, Vibration, and Harshness, which helps reduce outside noise and creates a smooth drive.

We know families need the utmost space to make any journey enjoyable and that’s exactly what the Seal U DM-i does. Generous rear seating is made possible with a flat floor and supportive seats, even for teenage or adult passengers.

Plus, with many storage compartments and a 425-litre boot (which can expand to 1,400 litres with the rear seats folded flat), there’s always room for luggage, prams and anything else needed!

BYD DM Technology

The BYD Seal U DM-i is possible thanks to BYD's Super DM (Dual Mode) Technology. This game-changing plug-in hybrid technology offers benefits such as energy efficiency, performance and comfort.

The ‘i’ in DM-i stands for intelligence, thanks to the PHEV BYD’s smart, energy-efficient driving capabilities.
