IM is a new luxury EV brand owned by a company called IM Motors, which is jointly owned by SAIC, Alibaba, and Zhangjiang Hi-Tech. The Chinese name is Zhiji Qiche (智己汽车).

IM sells two cars at the moment: the IM L7 sedan and the IM LS7 SUV. They are powerful and expensive cars. The IM L7 sedan is available with 340 hp at the rear or 605 hp with all-wheel drive. The maximum range is 675 kilometers CLTC. Size: 5098/1960/1485, with a 3100 mm wheelbase. The price starts at 338,800 RMB (48,687 USD).

The IM LS7 is a five-seat SUV that is available with 340 hp at the rear or 578 hp with all-wheel drive. The maximum range is 660 kilometers CLTC. Size: 5049/2002/1731 with a 3060 mm wheelbase. The price starts at 309,800 RMB (44,520).

The IM LC5 is a smaller SUV coupe. It will be positioned below the IM LS7. IM will offer two power versions: single-motor rear drive and dual-motor four-wheel drive. The LC5 will probably get a little less horsepower than the larger cars but count on at least 300 hp for the rear-wheel drive version and 500 for the four-wheel drive version.

Patent drawings show an aerodynamic shape with short front- and rear overhangs. The rear window is small. It has pop-out door handles and large wheels.

The hatch is hinged above the rear.

Another test car is seen in a parking garage, with the hatch open. The car is still heavily camouflaged but we can see that the shape of the headlights and bumper matches the patent drawings.

The IM LC5 will hit the Chinese car market in Q3. Price is expected to start around 250,000 RMB or 35,390 USD.
