VOTY 2024 Electric Performance Sedan Of The Year –  BYD Seal

Our pick for Electric Performance Sedan this VOTY 2024 goes to the BYD Seal.

Every EV delivers instantaneous torque and most have enough horsepower to keep up with sports cars up to the highway speed limit. That being said, not every EV is performance-oriented. Some place comfort and range as a higher priority and focus on those aspects instead. However, since EVs are currently exempt from excise duty and import taxes, the right performance-oriented model without a premium badge can be quite appealing against something with equivalent power with a petrol engine. 

So if you’re looking for an Electric Performance Sedan, the BYD Seal is an excellent proposition and out pick for winner of this category for 2024. Both the Premium and Performance models offer different kinds of performance-value with the premium model offering more day-to-day usable performance with enough grunt to keep up with your modern hot hatchbacks. The Performance spec has what it takes to keep up with bona fide sportscars.

All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.
