Luxeed S7 Electric Sedan
The Luxeed S7, which Huawei co-developed with Chinese automaker Chery, is the company’s first electric vehicle, and pre-orders for it were opened on November 9, 2023.
The coupe-style electric car Luxeed S7 is rumored to be a direct rival to the Tesla Model S, which is now a best-seller and a major hit in the worldwide electric vehicle industry.
The Luxeed S7 was initially revealed by the manufacturers in September 2023, and now, over a month later, the presale for this brand-new electric car has begun. It is anticipated that sales will begin on November 28, 2023.
Chery began producing cars in 1987, and given how long the company has been on the market, it will be interesting to see what kind of electric vehicle they have co-produced with Huawei, one of the most well-known Chinese tech companies.
Huawei is a well-known company throughout the world that has created a variety of high-tech devices. In particular, it is well-known for being one of the top producers of smartphones. But this is the first time they’re expanding into the market for electric vehicles.
Moreover, since the market for electric vehicles is entirely uncharted territory for them, they are co-producing with Chery, a company with extensive expertise in the automotive industry. It will undoubtedly assist Huawei in building a robust electric vehicle market and expanding its reach into a wider area.
Chery is in charge of the joint project’s manufacture and development for the Luxeed S7 electric car. Key components are supplied by Huawei.
Design And Looks
The Luxeed S7 electric sedan’s exterior was created by Chery, who employed all of his expertise to give the vehicle a powerful, premium appearance. The outcome appears to be effective.
The Luxeed S7’s couped shape gives it an extremely opulent appearance, and the exterior’s minimalistic design approach makes this electric sedan particularly striking and alluring.
The Luxeed S7’s LED headlights are amazing and give it a slightly aggressive look. The ultra-slim LED strip connecting the Luxeed S7 electric sedan’s two headlamps creates an incredibly attractive appearance.
In addition, this electric sedan features a retractable door handle, a slanted roofline to lessen drag, and a LiDAR sensor mounted on the roof. This electric vehicle also features a single taillight unit.
Speaking about the inside, the Luxeed S7 electric sedan’s interior exudes an air of refinement because of the meticulous design and detailing that went into each component.
This electric sedan’s front seat is dubbed the “queen seat” since the interior has a royal theme and vibe. Electrical adjustment of the front seat allows for eighteen alternative configurations. The center console, which is just another glovebox with a makeup box within, keeps with the regal concept.
Furthermore, the Luxeed S7’s interior features a big floating touchscreen that runs Huawei’s HarmonyOS 4 operating system in addition to a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster in the central console.
A notable feature of the Luxeed S7 electric sedan’s interior is its expansive 2.6 square meter panoramic roof, which blocks 99.9% of UV radiation. Touch bars on the back door cards enable passengers to change the climate there.
Huawei, who has extensive experience in this field, produces all of the high-tech parts included in the Luxeed S7 electric vehicle. Furthermore, the producers’ attempts to make this electric automobile appear sophisticated and high-tech suggest that they plan to sell it in international markets in the future.
There will be four distinct Luxeed S7 models available, each with a unique price and range. The four variations’ names and ranges are:
- Luxeed S7 Pro 550 km
- Luxeed S7 Max 705km
- Luxeed S7 Max+ 800+ km
- Luxeed S7 Max RS 630 km
The costs of each Luxeed S7 variation are listed below:
- Luxeed S7 Pro – 258,000 yuan (35,392 USD)
- Luxeed S7 Max – 298,000 yuan (40,880 USD)
- Luxeed S7 Max+ – 328,000 yuan (44,995 USD)
- Luxeed S7 Max RS– 358,000 yuan (49,111 USD)
Performance and Specifications
The Luxeed S7 features an air suspension and CDC active damping system, and it is constructed on the E0X platform. A two-wishbone suspension is installed on the front axle. The rear axle houses the multi-link independent suspension.
The industry’s thinnest 800 V high-voltage battery pack is found in the Luxeed S7, according to Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei’s intelligent vehicle solutions business unit.
Furthermore, AWD model can reach 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds because of its two e-motors, which have a combined power output of 496 horsepower (365 kW). Not much information regarding the battery capacity has been made public yet.
Because it is produced by two distinct manufacturers from separate industries, the Luxeed S7 shines in every way. Both manufacturers, Chery and Huawei, are specialists in separate fields; the former is a major player in the automotive industry, while the latter is a multinational technology company. Consequently, it will be the ideal luxury electric vehicle.
