Luxeed is working hard to stay in the news. Earlier this month it relaunched the S7 and now it says the car from June will be the first car able to autonomously park. Unlike other systems which will park for you or allow you to remotely control the car in and out of a space the system of the S7 will allow you not to be in the car.

Huawei claim that it will be the first commercially available car in the world to be able to do this but of course there are some caveats to the system. It seems from the description so far known that the system is actually an extension of the Valet Park Assist (AVP) function which involves teaching the car a route to a parking spot. According to Huawei the new system is an over-the-horizon autonomous parking function which can independently search and select parking spaces along with prioritizing them. However, what makes us suspect it is just an extension of AVP is that Fast Technology states that when a target parking space is occupied, the vehicle will automatically find other free spaces.

Similar systems such as from XPeng still require the driver to be in the car so if the Luxeed S7 can truly offer a drop and park system this will really be a time saver. Along with this forthcoming feature the S7 offers other parking functions which can deal with situations such as narrow spaces. There is also a summon function via mobile phone to bring the car to your side.

The Luxeed S7 has general obstacle detection (GOD) and a road topology inference network (RCR) which helps with its self-driving ability. In addition the Luxeed S7 can learn the daily commute route so that it can give a more relaxing commute to users. Earlier this year the car gained a comprehensive upgrade via OTA to boost its self-driving ability.

Prices for the relaunched Luxeed S7 range from 249,800 to 349,800 yuan (34,500-48,350 USD) for the five models with all achieving at least 630 km CLTC range. Battery pack sizes are either 82 or 100 kWh dependent on model. The car also has 800V architecture giving ultra-fast charging allowing as much as 430 km range to be added in 15 minutes. Single motor versions are powered by a 215 kW motor on the rear axle while all-wheel drive versions also add a 150 kW motor to the front.

Luxeed is a car brand jointly made by Chery and Huawei which uses the Huawei store network for sales.
