Huawei’s Luxeed S7 Sedan Launched in China

The all-new Luxeed S7 electric sedan has been launched in China. Luxeed is a new Huawei brand, and automobiles are produced with the help of their joint venture partner Chery Auto, which also provides the EV platform. It is Huawei’s second auto brand, following Aito, and the S7 is Luxeed’s first vehicle in the lineup that is expected to expand in the future.

Positioned as a mid to large-size sedan, the Luxeed S7 is available in four variants— Pro, Max, Max+, and Max RS, with starting prices of RMB 249,800 ($34,900), RMB 289,800 ($40,800), RMB 319,800 ($45,000), and RMB 349,800 ($49,300), respectively. The sedan measures 4,971 mm in length, 1,963 mm in width, and 1,474 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,950 mm. These dimensions make it even larger than the D-segment Hyundai Sonata (in terms of each parameter) we have here.
