Chery today unveiled pictures of its new Exeed E08. This new energy MPV is most probably all-electric and is set to debut at next week’s Beijing Auto Show. It will likely form part of the Exlantix series.

The Exeed 08 is the first car jointly developed by Exeed’s Europe and Shanghai design teams and is based on Exeed’s Wind Aesthetics 2.0 design language. Although a one box design it seems to be heavily streamlined and incorporates drag reducing features such as side-view cameras.

At the front the E08 has a design inspired by the ‘cyber butterfly’ family design. The front grille decoration itself is inspired by chandeliers and the headlight clusters take a shape similar to the letter F.

Side on the Exeed 08 has a very straight window line and the side itself is relatively flat bar a few crease lines. The rear doors are very wide and when open will allow direct access to the third row as well as the second. At the rear are boomerang shaped light clusters along with more lighting surrounding most of the tailgate window.

From the design we can assume that it is designed to compete with MPVs like the Li Mega and XPeng X9 although the price point of the Exeed E08 is likely to be lower.

Exeed currently sells both in China and in overseas markets and is a high-end brand under Chery. The range itself is quite confusing and is split into two sequences the main Exeed brand which contains both ICE and REEV (range extended EV) and another sequence Exeed Exlantix  which contains both full EV and range extended versions.

The E08 is likely to join ES and ET in the Exlantix sequence which in China is known as Sterra. We believe that this is one of the cars, along with three other models, that were teased at the presales launch of the Exlantix ET. This means that E08 will likely be on Chery’s high-end E0X all electric platform. Prices will probably start from about 250,000 yuan (34,550 USD) and deliveries will unlikely commence before early next year.
