Chinese technology giant Huawei, in collaboration with automotive manufacturer Chery, officially presented the inaugural model of their joint electric vehicle (EV) brand, Luxeed. Unveiled by Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei's intelligent vehicle solutions business unit, the Luxeed S7 marks Huawei's entry into sedan manufacturing through its partnership with Chery.
The Luxeed S7, categorized as an all-electric mid-to-large sedan, boasts dimensions of 4,971 mm in length, 1,963 mm in width, and 1,474 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,950 mm. Available in four variants—Pro, Max, Max+, and Max RS—the pre-sale prices range from RMB 258,000 to RMB 358,000.
Built on Huawei's “Giant Whale” 800 V high-voltage platform, the Luxeed S7 offers CLTC ranges of 550 km, 705 km, 800 km, and 630 km for the respective variants. The model features the industry's thinnest 800 V high-voltage battery pack, providing a range of over 200 km in five minutes of charging and over 400 km in 15 minutes.
Offering both single-motor and dual-motor versions, the Luxeed S7's dual-motor, four-wheel-drive variant accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.3 seconds, boasting a maximum power of 215 kW for the main motor and an additional 150 kW for the front motor, both supplied by Huawei.
Equipped with an advanced intelligent driving system, the Luxeed S7 distinguishes itself as the first model featuring Huawei's HarmonyOS 4 system, except for the base version. The official launch is scheduled for November 28, with pre-orders made before the launch date receiving benefits worth RMB 40,000.
Luxeed, established as a joint EV brand by Huawei and Chery, was introduced in August, with Chery likening it to the electrified equivalent of BMW. The Luxeed S7 marks Huawei's first foray into sedan production in collaboration with an automaker, having previously engaged in SUV manufacturing partnerships with local companies, including Aito's M-series models.
