BYD, a global leader in electric vehicles (EVs), has recently increased the prices for its latest marvel, the BYD Seal Electric Vehicle in Nepal. This move, made by Cimex Nepal, the authorized distributor of BYD electric vehicles in Nepal, comes in response to the increased customs duties following the new electric vehicle tax policies for the fiscal year of 2081/82 in Nepal. The BYD Seal electric sedan was launched in Nepal at the beginning of 2024. The price of the BYD Seal in Nepal ranges from NRs. 1.10 Crore to NRs. 1.95 Crore. Additionally, it is offered in three variants: Dynamic, Premium, and Performance.

The new prices for the BYD Seal in Nepal are NRs. 1.10 Crore for the Dynamic variant, NRs. 1.39 Crore for the Premium variant, and NRs. 1.95 Crore for the Performance variant. The Dynamic variant has a 10% customs duty increase, with excise duties unchanged. The Premium and Performance variants both see a 20% customs duty increase but with a 10% excise duty reduction. The previous prices were NRs 1.05 crore for the Dynamic variant, NRs 1.39 crore for the Premium variant, and NRs 1.85 crore for the Performance variant.

The base model BYD Seal, called Dynamic, includes a 61.4 kWh LFP Blade battery and a 150 kW electric motor, providing a range of 460 km (WLTP). The Premium version offers an 82.5 kWh battery, a 230 kW rear motor, and a range of 570 km (WLTP). The top-tier Performance variant features the same 82.5 kWh battery, dual motors for all-wheel drive, a total of 390 kW power, and a range of up to 520 km (WLTP). It can charge using a standard AC charger (Type 2) at up to 7 kW or a rapid DC fast charger (CCS 2) at a remarkable 110 kW maximum rate. Opting for fast charging allows you to charge the battery from 30% to 80% in just 30 minutes.

The BYD Seal offers advanced features ideal for city driving and long trips.

These ADAS features encompass Adaptive Cruise Control, an Automatic Emergency Braking System, Rear Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
