The AITO Wenjie M7 is expected to be unveiled at Huawei's new product launch on July 4. Previously a Huawei executive said that deliveries are expected to begin at the end of July.
AITO, the electric vehicle (EV) brand jointly created by Huawei and Seres, a brand of Chongqing Sokon, will unveil its second model, the Wenjie M7, on July 4.
The model will be a luxury large electric SUV, jointly designed by Seres and Huawei, AITO said today, without revealing any more information.
Although AITO said the SUV is an electric vehicle, previous information suggested that the model will be an extended-range model similar to Li Auto's Li ONE and the Li L9.
Earlier today, several local media reported that the AITO Wenjie M7 will be unveiled at Huawei's summer launch event on July 4.
A Huawei Weibo account today mentioned that on July 4, the company will hold a summer launch event for the Huawei nova 10 series of phones and new all-scene products.
Notably, the unveiling of the AITO Wenjie M7 appears to have been slightly delayed from Huawei's previous expectations.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's intelligent vehicle solutions business unit, said at an event on May 28, the first day of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Auto Show (Auto Shenzhen 2022) that the AITO Wenjie M7, a large six-seat SUV, will be unveiled between June 20-29, with deliveries starting in late July.
The AITO Wenjie M7 will have a very comfortable boss mode, with comfort levels surpassing those of the Toyota Alphard MPV and Lexus LM, according to Yu.
AITO's goal is to make the M7 an experience that surpasses million-dollar luxury large SUVs, and MPVs, according to Yu.
The Wenjie M7 is currently on AITO's website, but no specifications for the model have been released.
The AITO Wenjie M7 has previously entered the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's list of models allowed to be sold, and the declaration shows its core specifications.
With a length, width and height of 5,020 x 1,945 x 1,775 mm and a wheelbase of 2,820 mm, the model features the same family design as AITO's first model, the Wenjie M5.
The M7's rear-wheel-drive panel is equipped with an extended-range powertrain consisting of a 1.5T range extender and electric motor, with a drive motor producing a peak power of 200 kW and an engine producing a maximum of 90 kW.
A four-wheel-drive version of the model adds a front motor with a peak power of 130 kW, bringing the combined power to 330 kW.
The AITO Wenjie M7 is powered by CATL's ternary lithium-ion battery and has a WLTC range of 135 km under battery power.
AITO delivered 5,006 units of the Wenjie M5 SUV in May, up 54 percent from April, according to figures released earlier this month.
