HIMA is an automotive alliance initiated by Huawei in which Huawei participates in the product definition, design, marketing, user experience, quality control, and provides smart car software and hardware to traditional automakers. The current alliance members include Aito (with Seres), Luxeed (with Chery), and Stelato (with BAIC). Soon, a new brand between Huawei and JAC will be announced. In the first five months of this year, 148,098 vehicles were sold under HIMA.

The R in R7 stands for Revolution, according to Yu Chengdong. The Luxeed R7 is expected to launch in the third quarter of this year with a price range of 300,000 – 400,000 yuan (41,400 – 55,600 USD).

The Luxeed R7 is expected to be equipped with the latest Huawei’s Qiankun ADS 3.0 intelligent driving system, Turing chassis system, HarmonyOS system, and 4D millimeter-wave radar.

Furthermore, the Luxeed R7 runs on Pirelli’s P-ZERO 245/55 and 255/50 R20 tires. Both BEV and EREV variants are also offered with an 800V silicon carbide high-voltage system. The single-motor version has a maximum power of 215 kW (288 hp) while the dual-motor version has a maximum power of 365 kW (489 hp). The maximum CLTC cruising range is 855 km.
