In addition, officials say the new car has Huawei xPixel smart lights that can project text, patterns and even animation effects.
On the side of the body, the new car is designed with relatively straight lines, and the front and rear fenders protrude slightly from the body, full of muscle.

As Huawei's deep-empowered AITO boundary, data show that the cumulative sales of Selis new energy vehicles in 2022 was 135100, an increase of 225.9% over the same period last year. Since the start of delivery in March 2022, the QQ series has sold more than 75000 vehicles a year, making it the fastest growing new energy vehicle brand. However, after entering 2023, its sales did not continue the trend of rapid growth in 2022, but began to show a downward trend.
According to the sales data of MFC, in the first half of 2023, the cumulative wholesale sales of M5, M5 EV and M7 models were only 232.46 million, of which M5 sold more than 10,000 vehicles, while M7 sold poorly, only 432 in June.
On September 12, the new M7 was officially released and announced its price. The car is available in two versions with big five seats and six seats, with a price range of 24.98 yuan to 329800 yuan, which falls in the same price band as the M5 of the same brand medium-sized SUV. This price means that the starting price of the new model is 70,000 yuan lower than that of the previous version, and 40,000 yuan lower than that of the M7 after the price cut in January.
The launch of the new M7 has also achieved good results. On October 15, AITO announced that the new M7 had more than 60, 000 orders in its first month on the market. At present, the Selis factory has added production shifts, 22 hours a day continuous production and double-shift operation mechanism.
As for the question of whether the M9 will become a popular style after its listing? As the latest flagship model, Yu Chengdong said earlier, "the M9 is not only the best SUV within 10 million, but also the most powerful SUV on the road." From the point of view of the positioning and pre-sale price of the new car, the new car will compete directly with the ideal L9 (the price range is 42.98-459800 yuan). Considering that the final price of the new car has not yet been announced, it is impossible to judge whether it will become a popular style. However, Automotive Industry concern believes that if the new car pricing directly refers to the ideal L9, the M9, which is backed by Huawei, is indeed likely to become a popular style.
