Luxeed S7 Review: A High-Tech Huawei EV

Huawei, a renowned name in the tech industry, has recently expanded its horizon with the introduction of the Luxeed S7, part of its new Luxeed series, following the success of its Aito series. Officially launched on November 28 2023, the Luxeed S7 offers an array of models including the Pro, Max, Max+, and Max RS. This launch signifies Huawei's bold foray into the electric vehicle sector, blending elements of modern electric car design with traditional fuel car aesthetics.


The exterior of the Luxeed S7 is a testament to modern automotive design, boasting a mid-to-large sedan size with a sporty, coupe-like appearance. The front of the car features a closed facade, leading to a plunging front end that offers a visual impression similar to that of fuel-powered sports cars. The sharp, matrix-style LED lights and side air intakes are interconnected, enhancing its sporty allure. The side profile is sleek and dynamic, characterized by a fastback roofline and hidden door handles which not only augment the car's aesthetics but also reduce air resistance. This design is complemented by a low drag coefficient of 0.203, a figure that stands out in its class, adding to its streamlined appeal.

At the rear, the Luxeed S7 sports a unique “convex” shape, with a design focused on minimizing air resistance while compromising a bit on interior space. The rear includes through-type tail lights and features the LUXEED logo, along with identifications for its manufacturer, Chery Automobile, and the Luxeed S7 model itself. Color options for the car include Warm Nebula, Sky Blue, Frost Moon Silver, Gold Black, and Ceramic White, offering a range of understated yet elegant choices.


Inside, the Luxeed S7 is just as impressive. The vehicle's dimensions, straddling the line between fuel B-class and C-class cars, promise a spacious interior. The design ethos for the cabin is minimalist and technologically advanced, typical of new energy vehicles. A T-shaped layout dominates the dashboard, centered around a large LCD screen, with a steering wheel of rounded rectangular design that adds an element of elegance and sportiness. Additionally, the car is equipped with the HarmonyOS 4 car system, a smooth and feature-rich interface that even allows playing racing games with a controller, highlighting its appeal to young, tech-savvy consumers.


The Luxeed S7's performance is marked by its advanced smart driving capabilities. It comes loaded with technologies like laser, ultrasonic, and millimeter-wave radar, along with machine vision, offering advanced external perception and high-level intelligent driving abilities. The higher models will be equipped with the HUAWEI ADS intelligent driving assistance system, set to be launched in various cities by the end of 2023. The standard model features an 800V silicon carbide high-voltage platform, with a front motor power of 365kW, enabling it to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.3 seconds. The battery life is impressive as well, with a large-capacity battery offering a CLTC combined range of 855km, and supports rapid charging, which adds up to 215km of range in just 5 minutes.


Positioned to compete with the likes of Tesla Model 3, NIO ET5, BYD Seal, and the upcoming Xiaomi car, the Luxeed S7 has already received a warm welcome in the market. With over 20,000 orders and counting since its launch, Huawei's venture into the electric vehicle market through the Luxeed S7 seems to be off to a promising start, indicating a bright future for the brand in this new endeavor.
