The Li Auto L6 will launch in April and will be the most mass-market oriented Li model yet with prices expected in the 200,000-300,000 yuan (27,800-41,700 USD) price bracket. The sales target is 30,000 a month. Li Auto in 2023 delivered 376,030 cars and has a target of 800,000 for this year and so the L6 will make up a significant proportion of the number.

Currently, Li Auto sells the L7, L8 and L9 SUVs which are all range extended models (EREV) and the L6 will join these. Also launching this year is the Li Mega the brand’s first all-electric model and an MPV in a break from the SUV only lineup which has served the brand so well.

Li with its L lineup of SUVs has taken an iPhone type approach meaning that there are core features and a look across the range with only the sizes differing.

The L6 is positioned as a luxury five-seat SUV whereas the L7 is the brand’s flagship five seater. While the L6 is still quite big it is smaller than the L7. Riding on a 2920 mm wheelbase it has a length, width and height of 4925 mm 1960 mm and 1735 mm respectively. In contrast the L7 is 5050 mm 1995 mm and 1750 mm while the wheelbase is 3005 mm.

As well as a Pro and Max version there will be a cheaper Air version. Lower priced versions will not be equipped with Lidar. Visually, the car will be very much like a scaled down L7 with only minor differences. The interior is also expected to be similar to the L7.
