BYD’s (OTCMKTS: BYDDY) mini electric vehicle (EV) Seagull will officially launch in three days.
Aside from sharing a 3-day countdown image, BYD also released a video showcasing the Seagull’s exterior and interior details. The Seagull was unveiled on the first day of the Shanghai auto show on April 18th and made available for pre-sale in three versions priced at RMB 78,800 ($11,430), 83,800, and 95,800, respectively.
