2024 BYD Sealion 6 Price and Specifications

The Sea lion world 6 has been detailed for Australia, prices start from $48,990 before on-road costs for the new Chinese plug-in hybrid SUV.

Formerly known as Seal U, the Sealion 6 comes as a pure PHEV mid-size car and competes with models such as the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV and the MG HS +EV.

An all-electric version will be sold in overseas markets such as China and Europe and is apparently on the wish list for Australia. However, there is currently no official confirmation as to whether and when this will happen.

There are two variants and two plug-in hybrid powertrains available, including front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Both models can achieve a purely electric range of over 80 km and the Sealion 6 AWD can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds.

The 2024 BYD Sealion 6 Series is now on sale.

Maintenance and warranty

EVDirect covers the BYD range with one Six-year, 150,000 km vehicle warranty and a Eight-year battery warranty, 160,000 km.

Neither BYD nor EVDirect have yet detailed the Sealion 6’s maintenance schedule or cost, although the brand’s electric products require scheduled maintenance every 12 months or 20,000 kilometers – whichever comes first.

We will update this article when service pricing information becomes available.


The Sealion 6 doesn’t come with an ANCAP safety rating, although BYD says a five-star result is “expected”.

The confident response may be due to the electric BYD Seal U achieving a five-star Euro NCAP score in 2023, including 90 percent for adult occupant protection, 86 percent for child occupant protection, 83 percent for vulnerable Road users 77 percent for the safety assistant.

If there are minimal differences in the structural and crash test data, the Sealion 6 PHEV could well achieve a similar result as we have seen with other nameplates that support multiple powertrains.
