    BYD SEALION 6 Reviewed: Dynamic or Premium – Which Should You Choose?

    BYD SEALION 6 Reviewed: Dynamic or Premium – Which Should You Choose?

    🚗 This podcast Adrian drives the new BYD Sealion 6 — a midsize SUV Hybrid known as the Seal U in Europe and the Song Plus in China, where it's sold as both a plug-in hybrid and an EV. 🌍
    🔌 Until now, BYD has only imported fully electric vehicles into New Zealand: the Atto 3, the Dolphin, and the Seal. However, likely due to changing market conditions here, we now introduce the Sealion 6 and the upcoming Shark 6. 
    🔍 In this video, I'll be reviewing both options of the Sealion 6 — the Dynamic and Premium. The FWD Dynamic is priced from $57,990, and the AWD Premium starts at $64,990.
