Competition between different car brands is high; even more so when the rivalry with Tesla comes into play. Although many Chinese companies have been working for many years and have a good product, in the end, the brand Elon Musk, always a mirror in which to look at yourself. For this reason, Luxeed hopes to make things very difficult for some North American models, either because of their own specifications, technology or luxury. The focus is on these electrics.
Little does the company know. Luxeed as a car manufacturer, and the company is only a few months old. It was developed by Chinese companies Chery and Huawei; the first provides automotive value and knowledge and the second provides technological knowledge. The first image of its first model was released at the beginning of last August. Today, the company gives the dates for its official presentation and changes some aspects compared to a little over a month ago, such as its name (now it is S7) or its position in comparison other opponents.

Along with this, the electric sedan must have a approximately autonomy of 700 kilometers and fast charging thanks to its 800 volt architecture.
As pointed out from CarNews China the Luxeed S7 is a must have operating system HarmonyOS, made by Huawei itself. In technological terms, it will include elements such as LiDAR, three millimeter wave radar, 12 ultrasonic radar and 11 high definition cameras. All this to enable fully autonomous driving soon. These devices will be managed by Huawei’s ADS 2.0 system. This second generation system is capable of detecting abnormal objects on the road, such as crashed cars or fallen trees, etc.
