According to media reports, Seagull is a small pure electric car under BYD Ocean series. Its positioning is lower than that of the Dolphin. It adopts a four-door and four-seat design and is based on e-platform 3.0.

Judging from the current revelations, the appearance design of the Seagull is expected to be similar to that of the Dolphin, a bit like a “shrunken version” of a Dolphin. Although the official has not announced the specific configuration information, but from the perspective of positioning and BYD’s brand tonality, Seagull may have many bright spots in configuration, such as fast charging technology and heat pump air conditioner.

Relying on BYD’s technical advantages, Seagull is expected to become a hit model like BYD Dolphin after it is launched on the market with big sales.
