 Avatr 07 Revealed As Yet Another Chinese EV Looking To Shock Tesla Model Y

  • The Avatr 07 is a new electric SUV from China positioned as a competitor to the popular Tesla Model Y.
  • Chinese prices are expected to start at around 205,000 yuan ($28,900), potentially undercutting the Tesla Model Y.
  • Avatr will sell both battery-electric and range-extended versions of the 07 with the flagship EV pumping out 590 hp.

Update May 28th: Avatr has dropped the first official photos of their new 07 electric crossover ahead of its sales launch just before the end of June. The company stated that more details, including pricing, will be released in the coming weeks.

This is the Avatr 07, the latest NEV from the joint venture between Changan and CATL. Like other vehicles from the small Avatr brand, the 07 uses many technologies from Huawei who serves as an important parts supplier.

Avatr teased the 07 earlier this month, initially under the name Avatr 15. However, images and details from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology confirmed the official name as the 07.

Developed by Changan as a competitor to the Tesla Model Y, local sources report a price range of 205,000 yuan to 350,000 yuan (approximately $28,900 to $49,200 at current exchange rates). This positions it as a more affordable option compared to the Tesla, which starts at 249,900 yuan ($35,100).

The design and overall shape of the 07 is very similar to the company’s other crossover, the Avatr 11. Your eyes will be immediately drawn to the LED daytime running lights that extend down the fascia and connect to a black grille. The car can be equipped with traditional wing mirrors or side-view cameras, and it has relatively smooth and simple door panels with flush door handles.

The rear is also very similar to the Avatr 11 and 12 with a tiny window and thin LED taillights. The area dedicated to the license plate holder has also been designed to mimic the shape of the front grille.

While the 07 is being positioned as a rival to the Model Y, it’s a little bigger than the Tesla. It measures 4,825 mm (189.9 inches) long, 1,980 mm (77.9 inches) wide, and stands 1,620 mm (67.7 inches) tall with a 2,940 mm (115.7-inch) wheelbase. This makes it 75 mm (2.9 inches) longer, 59 mm (2.3 inches) wider, and 4 mm (0.1-inch) lower than the Model Y. It will be available with 20-inch and 21-inch wheels.

Avatr will sell both BEV and range-extender EV versions of the 07. The entry-level BEV has a single motor at the rear axle with 338 hp and an LFP battery from CATL. A dual-motor BEV is also on the cards and will have a combined 590 hp.

Last but not least will be the standard EREV with a 310 hp electric motor at the rear axle and a 1.5-liter engine with 154 hp. An all-wheel drive EREV with a combined 485 hp and 178 km (111 miles) of all-electric range is also available.
