Spy shots have recently emerged of the second model from Luxeed, believed to be called the S9. Luxeed is a car brand jointly made by Chery and Huawei which uses the Huawei store network for sales.

The Luxeed S9 looks quite similar to in profile to the forthcoming Nio ET9 although the S9 is meant to be a sporty slash crossover SUV. Although there is a strong resemblance between the new car and the existing S7 by the time we reach the C-pillar that resemblance has largely disappeared with the rear of the car being quite stubby and ending abruptly.

At the front the headlights have three lenses and the lower part of the headlights extend into the air intake. Visible on top of the roof is a lidar unit. From the side profile we can see that the overhangs both front and rear are minimal. At the rear the taillight design seems largely carried over from the S7 with a through light design with larger clusters on each end. The tailgate itself has a duck tail design and seems to end quite high up with a minimal window. Doors on the car are expected to be frameless.

Spy shots extend to the interior as well and we can see that inside the car has a similar double-layer design as with the S7. There is an LCD instrument screen set quite far towards the back of the dashboard while the central control screen is much further forward and a floating design mounted on the intersection of the dashboard and the center console. The steering wheel has a squashed look about it and seems to have only two scroll wheels in the way of controls. Mounted on the A-pillar is face recognition.

Currently there is no real news regarding powertrain however we can expect the car to come with a Huawei motor system. We can also expect an 800V silicon carbide high-voltage platform as standard. Currently the S7 comes in single-motor versions and dual-motor versions, with a maximum power of 215 kW for the rear-wheel drive car and a maximum power of 365 kW for the all-wheel drive car. The S9 at the very least will be as powerful as the S7. It’s also possible that the car will inherit the same 82 and 100 kWh battery pack options.

The car is expected to be officially launched possibly as soon as this month but more likely in the third quarter. Huawei and Chery will obviously be hoping that they get the S9 right from the start. Previously the Luxeed S7 had to have a relaunch in April despite deliveries only beginning in November 2023.

Editor’s note:

The Huawei range is getting increasingly complex and difficult to understand thanks to all the different partner companies. If this car really is called the S9 it is obviously very confusing with the Stelato S9 which is also a Huawei car but this time built together with BAIC.

Making things even more confusing in English is that Chery has its own brand known as Exeed which is easily confused with the name Luxeed.
