Avatr presents electric SUV crossover Avatr 07

The Chinese electric car brand Avatr from the two partners Changan and CATL has unveiled its third model, the Avatr 07. The SUV crossover is positioned as a competitor to the Tesla Model Y and comes both as a fully electric vehicle and as a variant with an additional range extender.

The market launch of the Avatr 07, previously known as the Avatr 15, is scheduled for the third quarter of this year at prices between 250,000 and 350,000 yuan (approx. 32,000 to 45,000 euros). Avatr has so far remained silent on whether an export is planned. It is therefore still completely unclear whether this car will hit European or American markets.

The Avatr 07 follows the design language of the Avatr 2.0. Its front end resembles the Avatr 12 thanks to the two-layer LED lights and the headlights integrated into the front bumper. The Avatr 07 also has an active radiator grille with Avatr lettering. A LiDAR sensor is also positioned on the roof of the SUV, which provides data for object detection and collision avoidance.

The Avatr 07 is equipped with 21-inch tyres and aerodynamic hubcaps. It also has retractable door handles and reversing cameras instead of conventional mirrors. From the rear, the Avatr 07 features two narrow taillights and a rather slim rear spoiler.

The dimensions of the Avatr 07 are 4825 x 1980 x 1620 millimetres with a wheelbase of 2940 mm. The five-seater is the smallest car in the Avatr series to date. However, it is still larger than Tesla’s Model Y, which the Avatr 07 is intended to rival.

The Avatr model range currently includes two all-electric models: the Avatr 11 SUV and the coupé-like Avatr 12 saloon. With the Avatr 07, the brand is now also entering the E-REV segment: The Avatr 07 will be the brand’s first range extender. However, the SUV will also be available as a fully electric model as an option.

Avatr is a joint venture between the state-owned car manufacturer Changan and the battery manufacturer CATL. Changan holds 40 per cent of the shares, CATL 17 per cent. The rest is owned by local investment funds. Huawei is also on board as a technology partner and main supplier of components.
