The Executive Extended Edition has a staggering body length of 5405 mm with a 3275 mm wheelbase and adopts a six-seater layout. In addition, the length of the interior space reaches 3823 mm.

The engine power is 115 kW, and when combined with the 135 kW rear axle electric motor, the comprehensive power can reach 358 kW. The 37.96 kWh ternary lithium battery pack provides a CLTC pure electric cruising range of 175 km.
Inside, the interior will feature a dual screen, all electrically adjustable seats with heating and ventilation functions, a Harman Kardon 20-speaker sound system, and voice interaction.
For reference, the standard version has dimensions of 5045/1960/1900 mm, with a 3085 mm wheelbase, and adopts a 7-seater layout of 2+2+3. The maximum legroom in the second row is 1166 mm.
