The AITO M7 five-seater version pre-sale is open, with a price range of 258,000 – 318,000 yuan (35,500 – 43,800 USD), and is expected to officially launch on September 12. Consumers can choose from three configurations. The biggest highlight of the five-seater version is Huawei’s ADS 2.0 Advanced Driving System.
Positioned as a medium-to-large SUV, the new AITO M7 measures 5020/1945/1760mm and has a wheelbase of 2820mm. The design is the same as that of the current model with hidden door handles, through-type taillights, and runs on 21-inch wheels (265/45 R21). In addition, there are cameras on the front fenders and external mirrors, as well as a radar above the front windshield, to realize advanced driving assistance functionalities coming from Huawei’s ADS 2.0 system.
The power continues to come from a 1.5T range-extender hybrid system and an electric motor supplied by Huawei. Both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions are supported. The two-wheel-driver version with a single electric motor on the rear axle outputs 200 kW and 360 Nm. The four-wheel-drive version with two electric motors has a combined output of 330 kW and 660 Nm. Its 40 kWh ternary lithium battery pack supplied by CATL provides two pure electric cruising range options of 200 km and 230 km.
Inside, a large area is covered in leather materials and the dashboard is decorated with wood veneers, which further enhance the luxurious atmosphere of the car. Furthermore, the interior has a 10.25-inch full LCD instrument panel, a 15.6-inch floating central control screen, a flat-bottom double-spoke multifunctional steering wheel, and two 40W wireless charging panels. The new car continues to use Huawei’s HarmonyOS 3.0 in-vehicle operating system.
The car’s highlight – Huawei’s ADS 2.0 system, supports functions such as collision avoidance, lane change, autonomous parking assist, remote parking assist, and valet parking assist under tight parking space conditions. Moreover, the system’s advanced automatic emergency braking feature called GAEB developed based on Huawei’s GOD (General Obstacle Detection) network allows for object detection of fallen trees and rocks.
The five-seat version adopts a 2+3 layout and the third-row seats are removed, allowing for greater storage capacity in the trunk. The front seats can be adjusted electronically and support heating, ventilation, and massage functions.
The official longitudinal length of the trunk is 1100mm and has a volume of 686L. After the rear seats are folded down, the storage volume can reach up to 1619L. AITO even claims that after the rear seats are folded down, the space can be used to form a bed.
