Due to go on sale at the end of the year the new mid-size all-electric sedan has an acceleration figure of under three seconds.

The design represents a clear evolution of IM’s existing design language. A closed front and sharp headlights help give pace to the front end. C-shaped deflector grooves and the narrow slatted trapezoidal air intakes give the car a more sporty look.

A family sized car it comes in with dimensions of length, width and height of 4931/1960/1474 mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2950 mm. While a true four door sedan the steeply slanted panoramic roof gives a coupe like stance furthered by the raised wheel arch lines.

Inside the car is very similar to the IM LS6 with the instrument panel, center screen and passenger entertainment screen all flowing into one. Also apparent is a yoke type steering wheel. Other features such as the wireless phone charging pad and cup holders are also very similar to the LS6. So far spy shots have only shown the interior in a light-colored design.

The car will come in single and dual motor versions. Chinese sources claim the single-motor version, which should be rear wheel drive, will come with a 216 kW motor but the LS6 comes with a choice of 231 kW, 250 kW, or 379 kW. The dual motor L6 gets the same setup as in the LS6 with a 379 kW motor at the rear and 200 kW at the front. At launch it will come with a choice of a 90 kWh or 100 kWh battery packs. Ranges dependent on motor and battery combination are reportedly 700 km, 720 km, 750 km or 770 km all on the CLTC test cycle. However pictures from Geneva seem to indicate that range might be excess of 800 km.

IM Motors was founded in 2020 as a joint venture between SAIC Motor, Alibaba Group, and Zhangjiang Hi-Tech. The first model was the L7 sedan which went on sale in 2022 and has since been followed by the LS7 and LS6 SUVs.

We recently brought you the story that IM Motors would enter Europe and South America. While the cars will definitely use MG sales channels there is still some confusion as to whether they will be rebranded as MG cars or will keep the IM name. MG at Geneva showed the MG 9 and MG S9 both rebranded from Rising models but the IM L6 did not get this treatment.
