Today in China, the official premiere of a new car from Li Auto, the L7 crossover, took place. This is the manufacturer’s first five-seat model, but in terms of equipment it does not lag behind the flagship Li Auto L9, which was recognized as the best Chinese car last year.
The Li Auto L7 will be offered in China in three versions – Air, Pro and Max, with prices ranging from $47,210 to $55,960. Given the size and equipment, it is inexpensive.
The design of Li Auto L7 is made in the spirit of the older model L9, in principle, cars can even be easily confused. For cars, 20- and 21-inch wheels are available, four standard colors: white, silver, gray and black. But, as with the Samsung Galaxy S23 or Xiaomi 13, there are special colors. There are three of them: blue, green and red. The dimensions of the car are 5050 x 1995 x 1750 mm, the wheelbase is 3005 mm. The Li Auto L7 is larger than the Toyota Land Cruiser 300.
Inside Li Auto L7 – the realm of screens. There are five of them in total: a projection one, a display as part of a digital instrument panel, as well as three 15.7-inch screens – two on the front panel (in the center and in front of the passenger) and one fixed under the ceiling for entertaining rear passengers.
The audio system is a match – 7.3.4 format (there are 21 speakers in total) with Dolby Atmos support. The Air and Pro versions have one Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 SoC each, while the Max version has two such platforms at once.
The creators focus on the comfort of the rear passengers – at their disposal are electric seats and Nappa leather, with heating, ventilation and a lumbar massager (the front seats have everything the same). If you activate the Queen Seat mode, the rear seats will move back so that the distance to the front will be more than a meter!
Already in the base, Li Auto L7 has a panoramic roof, atmospheric lighting, a two-layer athermal windshield, and three-zone climate control. Air suspension is optionally available.
The Li Auto L7 is a plug-in hybrid in which a 1.5-liter tubular engine charges a 42.8 kWh traction battery, which in turn powers the front and rear electric motors with a total output of 449 hp. The power reserve of a fully charged and charged crossover is 1315 km (according to the CLTC method), the mileage on pure electricity is up to 210 km. Up to 100 km / h Li Auto L7 accelerates in 5.3 seconds.
Sales of the all-new Toyota Camry will start on March 6
According to Autohome, sales of the all-new Toyota Camry (Camry XV80 or ninth-generation Camry) will start on March 6. Moreover, China will be the first country where the new Camry will be available in retail: before that, pre-orders were opened in China, and, for example, in the USA, production of the Camry XV80 will begin later this year.
In China, the Camry XV80 is available in three appearance variants, corresponding to the SE, LE and XSE trim levels.
There are also three engines: a basic 2.0-liter naturally aspirated one and two non-rechargeable hybrid power plants with engines of 2.0 and 2.5 liters. Pre-order prices range from 24.2 to 29 thousand dollars, but at retail the sedans will probably be cheaper. In addition, at the start of open sales of new models in China, discounts and various bonus programs are usually announced.
204 hp and a range of up to 900 km is expensive. The cost of the long-range Volkswagen Tiguan of the third generation has been revealed – with a hybrid power plant
Orders for the third generation hybrid Volkswagen Tiguan have begun to be accepted in Europe. And such a crossover cannot be called cheap: the price starts at 48,655 euros.
The hybrid Tiguan in Europe has a 1.5-liter turbo engine with 116 hp, paired with an electric motor. In the basic version, the power is 204 hp, in the top version – 272 hp. The capacity of the traction battery in both cases is the same – 19.7 kWh, the declared range on pure electricity is up to 120 km.
The crossover’s basic equipment includes LED headlights, a media system with a 12.9-inch screen, 17-inch wheels and single-zone climate control. For an additional fee – adaptive suspension, seats with a built-in massager, matrix headlights. That is, a hybrid Tiguan in the maximum configuration and with all options will be noticeably more expensive than 50 thousand euros.
The only dancing car that can jump and ride on three wheels has received unique motors. All details about BYD YangWang U9 revealed before release
The makers of the YangWang U9 sports car have revealed additional specifications ahead of the official launch, scheduled for February 25. The new information mainly focuses on the powertrain, chassis and body of this car, which can go, jump and dance very fast.
YangWang U9 is equipped with four TZ220XYAK electric motors manufactured by BYD. The peak power of each e-motor is 240 kW (322 hp). The total power of this supercar reaches 960 kW (1287 hp). Representatives of YangWang said that the maximum torque of the system reaches 1680 Nm at 21,000 rpm. As a result, YangWang U9 can accelerate to 100 km/h in 2 seconds.
According to YangWang, the U9 uses the world’s first U-shape engine to achieve a lower center of gravity. It also features permanent magnets that are resistant to high temperatures and demagnetization, which improves the efficiency of the motor. They can withstand temperatures up to 200 °C. Typically, an electric motor magnet can withstand temperatures of about 140 °C.
It also features a silicon carbide controller that increases the maximum transmission efficiency to 99.8%. To put this into perspective, the efficiency of conventional automatic transmissions ranges from 86% to 94%. The YangWang U9 thermal management system includes two electric pumps on the front and rear axles. Each of them is controlled independently, cooling the engines.
YangWang U9 is equipped with DiSus-X chassis. Apart from the dancing and jumping that is a promotional feature, this supercar can corner faster, brake without dropping the nose, and move away quickly without lifting the front end. It can also ride on three wheels if the fourth is no longer available. The DiSus-X suspension can lift each axle at a speed of 500 mm/s thanks to the maximum power of 36 kW provided by the 800 V platform.
The body of the YangWang U9 is made of carbon fiber. As for torsional rigidity, it is 54,425 Nm. The U9 rear spoiler provides downforce of up to 280 kg. The U9’s curb weight is 2,475 kg. The battery pack alone weighs 633 kg. So for a supercar it’s quite heavy.
The range is 465 km, the price will be announced on February 25.
