Huawei’s Electric Sedan Debut Signifies its Goal to Surpass Tesla, Focusing on Market Entry Despite Profit Prospects

According to IJIWEI’s news, during the Huawei Smart Mobility Conference held on November 9, Huawei, in collaboration with Chery, unveiled its first smart electric sedan, the Luxeed S7. Priced at a starting pre-sale cost of 258,000 RMB. Huawei had previewed the release of Luxeed S7 during a product launch event held on September 25th. “It will be superior to Tesla’s Model S in various aspects,” said Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei.

The vehicle is produced on a new platform using Huawei’s smart automotive solution. It features the Huawei’s turing intelligent chassis, HarmonyOS 4 smart cockpit, and the advanced Huawei ADS 2.0 intelligent driving assistance system.

The Huawei ADS 2.0 advanced intelligent driving system is highlighted for its cutting-edge perception capabilities, obstacle recognition and processing abilities, and advanced features in intelligent driving and smart parking. The ADS 2.0 achieves a leading experience with nationwide map-agnostic driving, intelligent parking assistance, and continuous improvement over time, making it a top-tier intelligent driving system.

In terms of appearance, the Luxeed S7 incorporates an entirely new OneBox design to maximize the interior space, achieving a cabin space utilization rate of 88%. Richard Yu mentioned that after numerous internal discussions about pricing, it was found that all four versions of this car would incur losses. The hope lies in later substantial shipments of the car to offset these losses.

Richard Yu stated that in terms of energy consumption, the Luxeed S7 once again leads the industry with an energy consumption of 12.4 kWh per 100 kilometers.

Yu further mentioned that Huawei supports its partners in achieving commercial success through three cooperation modes: component supply mode, solution mode, and Huawei Smart Car mode. Currently, Huawei’s Smart Car model has four partner companies, including Seres, Chery, JAC Motors, and BAIC Group.

Currently, the Aito Series, including the M5, has seen cumulative deliveries surpass 120,000 vehicles, with the newly introduced M7 series achieving a cumulative sales total of 86,000 units. Even before its official release, the upcoming Aito Series M9 has received more than 25,000 pre-orders.

According to the introduction, Huawei’s Smart Travel Solution represents a strategic advancement in the Huawei Smart Choice Car model. It aims to leverage Huawei’s over 30 years of intelligent incremental component products in the ICT domain, technological solutions, and Huawei’s quality control, sales service, and brand marketing experiences accumulated over more than ten years in consumer businesses, deeply empowering partners to pioneer a new era of smart vehicles.
