A big range, good quality interior, lots of standard equipment and what we expect to be a competitive list price – the BYD Seal U DM-i has a lot going for it in the plug-in hybrid world.

All versions of the Seal U get 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, vegan leather upholstery, wireless phone-charging, an Infinity sound system, a 15.6in rotatable infotainment touchscreen, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control with steering assistance, heated and ventilated front seats, and much more.

This entry-level version of the Seal U DM-i gets a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and an 18.3kWh battery. The official electric range is 50 miles and this is an impressive plug-in hybrid option.
