The YangWang U7 NEV (New Energy Vehicle) sedan from BYD was officially revealed in China. It was previously known under the U6 name. It will adopt the brand’s signature design language. The power output of the YangWang U7 will be over 1,000 hp, thanks to the e⁴ platform. Its price tag will reach 1 million yuan (140K USD).
YangWang is a high-end NEV brand launched in early 2023. It currently sells a single model in China, the YangWang U8 EREV off-roader, with a starting price of over 1 million yuan. Its second model is the YangWang U9 electric sports car that applied for a sales license in China in December 2023.
The third YangWang model is the U7 sedan. It was spied on in China several times. In September 2023, C-STAA revealed the U7 will have a drag coefficient of 0.195 Cd. It will be the most aerodynamic passenger car together with Xiaomi SU7.
YangWang U7 details
Today, YangWang shared the official images of the U7 sedan. The brand representatives called it the “flagship NEV sedan”. They confirmed it stands on the e⁴ platform and has over 1,000 hp (750 kW). The front end of the YangWang U7 adopts the brand’s signature headlights. We at CarNewsChina call them “carving forks”. The front bumper of the U7 has a large air intake with ultrasonic radar mounted on it. Its side skirt and splitters are made of carbon fiber.
The YangWang U7 has a sloped bonnet line and a LiDAR sensor from RoboSense. From the back, it has a single taillight unit and a sporty rear diffuser. Other fine details of its exterior are five-spoke R21 rims with Continental tires, and retractable door handles.
There is no detailed information about the YangWang U7 powertrain. Since YangWang representatives called it an “NEV sedan”, there is a possibility it will become an EREV, similar to the U8 SUV. However, we are sure the U7 will feature four electric motors. The price tag of this sedan will reach 1 million yuan (140K USD). The YangWang representatives didn’t reveal more information on their newest model. More about the U7 as we get it.
