Presale for the Luxeed S7 kicks off in China
The official market launch is on 28 November, but customers in China can already order the Luxeed S7, which has now been officially unveiled.
The model is available in four variants: Pro, Max, Max+, and Max RS. These cost RMB 258,000 (35,420 dollars), RMB 298,000 (41,000 dollars), RMB 328,000 (45,000 dollars), and RMB 358,000 (49,000 dollars), respectively.
According to the manufacturer, the variants have ranges of 550 km, 705 km, 800 km, and 630 km, respectively, according to the Chinese test cycle CLTC.
Because of the registration application filed in August, many design and technical specifications aspects were already public. The Luxeed S7 is 4.97 metres long, 1.96 metres wide and 1.47 metres high, with a wheelbase of 2.95 metres. It is based on Chery’s E0X platform, designed for two-motor all-wheel drive, and Huawei’s “Giant Whale” 800 V high-voltage platform. The battery comes from CATL.
According to Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei’s intelligent vehicle solutions business unit, the Luxeed S7 has the industry’s thinnest 800 V high-voltage battery pack. It can charge up to 200 kilometres in five and 400 kilometres in 15 minutes.
It is available as a single- and a dual-motor version, which Huawei makes. The single-engine version has an output of up to 215 kW, while the all-wheel-drive version has an additional drive source with an output of up to 150 kW. The top speed is said to be 210 kph.
Luxeed is a brand from tech company Huawei and electric car manufacturer Chery. Nothing had been known about their cooperation until this summer.
