The BYD Seagull is an electric city car with a sharp and purposeful design. The smallest of the new-generation BYD electric cars features a smooth front fascia, sweptback, wedge-shaped headlamps, and a large windshield. BYD has used a single wiper on the Seagull, which is clever cost-cutting. A compact air intake at the bottom of the front-end serves the battery’s cooling needs; the vertical grilles on its flanks don’t have openings and contribute to nothing more than style.
On the sides, the right-side front wing houses the charging port. The rising beltline features a sharp kick behind the B-pillar, which makes the rear windows noticeably small. BYD designers have attempted to add ruggedness with gray cladding on the wheel arches and the door panels and crossover-like wheels. The flush door handles are cost-effective pull-type units (non-electrical).
