At present, the product matrix of ideal car has reached five models, including ideal L9, ideal L8, ideal L7, ideal MEGA and ideal L6, among which ideal MEGA and ideal L6 are new cars on the market this year. What needs to be faced squarely is that although the ideal car has bid farewell to the era of relying on the ideal ONE, its life is not easy, especially since 2024, it is facing more challenges. At present, ideal car is still facing a lot of operating pressure, according to media reports, ideal car in the "May Day" holiday after the launch of a new round of staff optimization plan, the total optimization ratio is expected to exceed 18%.

On March 1 this year, ideal MEGA went on the market with a price of 559800 yuan.

In Li Xiang's view, MEGA has the characteristics of popular style, is confident to become the first sales of all passenger cars above 500000, and has set a radical sales target for the car. However, the car failed to achieve the desired effect after it was launched. Retail data show that ideal MEGA sales in March and April were 3229 and 1145, respectively.

According to the plan, at the beginning of the year, ideal Automobile Chairman Li Xiang set an annual sales target of 800000 vehicles this year, challenging the sales of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in China, and achieving the first sales of luxury brands in the Chinese market. But after the defeat of the ideal MEGA, the highly advanced ideal car let go of the "fast forward button". According to a circulating investor note, ideal has adjusted its annual sales target of 800000 vehicles to 560000 to 640000, while the ideal MEGA sales guidance has been lowered from 8000 to 2000 per month.

After entering the second quarter, the ideal car also started a new innovation.

On April 18, the ideal L6 launched the Pro version and the Max version, the price is 249800 yuan and 279800 yuan respectively, the car positioning five-seat medium-sized SUV, focusing on the 25-300000 yuan household market, becoming the first ideal car model less than 300000 yuan, shouldering the important task of increasing the ideal car market in 2024 On April 22nd, ideal Auto Guan Xuan cut prices for all its L7, L8, L9 and MEGA models, including a price reduction of 1.8-20000 yuan for the L-series and 30000 yuan for MEGA, as well as cash rewards for owners of 2024 L7, L8, L9 and MEGA models. And behind a series of measures is the ideal car hope to hit the sales target.
