While BYD seems intent on taking off in Australia, with three models now on its roster, there are plenty more on the cards for its homeland in China, including this new rival to the likes of the Tesla Model Y.
Having made its debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show, details of the Sea Lion (including any Australian plans) are fairly scarce.
The platform, the e-Platform 3.0, aims to integrate the battery into the chassis as much as possible.
The Sea Lion 07's specifications are under wraps for now, with only China seemingly on the cards for now as a market for the model.
Images seen from the Guangzhou Auto Show also seem to show the car with blacked-out windows, as such no interior photos have been published.
What is confirmed by reports from China is that the Sea Lion 07 is 4830mm long, 1925mm wide and 1620 mm tall, with a 2930mm wheelbase, so slightly larger than the Model Y in most dimensions.
Car News China reports that it will cost between 200,000 and 260,000 yuan (A$42,500 to $55,300), though if it does come to Australia its pricing could line up similarly with the Seal, which starts from $49,888 before on-roads and goes up to $68,748 in its Performance grade.
On its chances of coming to Australia, CarsGuide expects the Seal U to be a more likely candidate for the brand, as it's been seen testing in Australia camouflaged with Victorian plates.
