Last week we brought you some rather poor spy pictures of the interior for the forthcoming Avatr 07. This week we’re back with some altogether far better pictures and early indications show that the interior should be a big selling point for the Avatr brand’s third model.

Perhaps most strikingly the Avatr 07 employs a four-screen setup in the front and it is similar to the latest versions of the Avatr 11 and 12. There is a long narrow instrument panel screen that runs most of the width of the interior. From one picture we can see a 104 km range displayed while the bar shows the car is around half its electric capacity. Meanwhile, a yellow fuel warning shows and the fuel range fails to show obviously indicating the picture is of the EREV version. From these we can deduce that the all-electric range of the EREV is around 200 km. Also displayed on the instrument panel are items such as tire pressure.

At each end of the panel are screens for the side view cameras. Although legal in China since July last year the Avatr 07 will be one of the few cars to so far use them. We can also see that the interior is largely devoid of buttons. From one picture we can see the infotainment unit has virtual buttons at the bottom for controlling the AC.

There’s a dual wireless charging pad for mobile phones. We can also see that there is gold highlighting in various places such as the divider for the phone charger and on the steering wheel where the control buttons are. The centre console’s compartment is side opening and can be opened from either side.

Surprisingly the pictures show a much lighter looking interior than in the spy shots. We can see perforated leather seats in a twin-tone beige and brown color. There also appears to be blue ambient lighting.

In the back there is a big fold down armrest and it seems as if the seats might be electrically adjustable.

Previous reports claimed the battery capacity for the EREV was 39 KWh giving up to 188 km all-electric range but given the new information from the interior indicating the range is higher this might not be correct. Alternatively, 188 km might be the range for the dual motor EV version which uses a 231 kW motor on the rear axle and an additional 131 kW motor on the front – single motor versions just use the 231 kW rear motor. Range extension comes via a 115 kW 1.5 liter engine from Changan and the car has a 190 km/h top speed.

All electric versions are also available with a choice of single or dual motors. Both use a 252 kW motor at the back with all-wheel drive versions adding a 188 kW motor to the front axle. The rear motor is from Changan’s Deepal brand whereas the front one is from Chongqing Tsingshan Industrial. Top speed is 200 km/h.

Editor’s note:

The Avatr 07 has dimensions of 4825, 1980 and 1620 mm (l/w/h) and a wheelbase of 2940 mm. This is only marginally smaller than the Avatr 11 which measures in at 4880, 1970 and 1601 with a wheelbase of 2975 mm. It is expected that the price range will be 250,000 to 350,000 yuan (34,500 – 48,300 USD) which means that top spec versions will very much overlap with the Avatr 11 and could lead to a lot of sales cannibalization with most likely the Avatr 11 bearing the brunt.

  1. Don’t think it looks like a winner at all. Distateful brown colour, no proper arm rests for (back) passengers and an awkwardly shaped steering wheel.
