What sets the BYD Seal apart is its utilization of Cell-to-Body (CTB) battery technology, a first for an EV in Malaysia. Unlike the Cell-to-Pack (CTP) construction seen in other BYD models, the Seal's LFP chemistry battery is intricately integrated into the car's structural framework.

This approach is said to enhance the vehicle's rigidity, resulting in a smoother ride, sharper handling, and heightened safety standards. However, it's worth noting that the CTB design limits modular, cell-level replacements, potentially leading to higher battery repair or replacement costs.
