The awaited car IM L7 delivery will officially start from April 2022. IM L7 Angel wheel will start pre-sale at 408,800 yuan (64,000 USD) in February.
IM is a new brand owned by IM Motor, a joint venture SAIC Motor, Alibaba, and Shanghai’s Pudong New Area. Both SAIC and Pudong New Area are majority-owned by the Shanghai municipal government. The manufacturer of the IM-branded cars is SAIC Motor. The Chinese name of the company is Zhiji Motor (智己汽车). The IM L7 is their first car. It is supposed to compete with Tesla Model S in China.

The IM L7 was unveiled as a prototype with the IM LS7 concept SUV and the Airo concept car at Auto Shanghai on April 19, 2021. With its IM AD automated driving technology, the L7 competes with the shorter Tesla Model S in the Chinese market.
The awaited car IM L7 delivery will officially start from April 2022, the pre-sale price of the IM L7 Angel wheel is 408,800 yuan (64,000 USD).
The IM L7 raises the bar for EV technology advancement to new heights. IM is bringing an electric car with the world’s first 11 kWh wireless charging technology. With a charging efficiency of 91 percent, it can go 80 kilometers on a single charge. The best part is that it comes with two optional batteries: a 93kWh battery with a range of 382 miles (615 km) and a 118kWh battery with a range of 621 miles (1000 km).

Interior

The interior will be built in a classic-futuristic design, with a traditional vendor made of wood sourced from Lake Como in the Italian Alps. The 39-inch 4K resolution smart screen positioned across the dash panel and a sophisticated OS explicitly designed for the L7 gives the car a futuristic look.

Exterior

The overall design of the car is very new and experimental.
The daytime running lights have a form that resembles “∑” giving the vehicle’s front end a new appearance. The car’s side form is unusually stretched and complete, and the hidden door handles contribute to a high drag coefficient.


The tail has a unique integrated tail wing and taillight design, giving the automobile a more trendy and athletic appearance. It’s worth noting that the new car’s front and rear lights, which are made up of 2.6 million pixel DLP LED ISC, have a smart lighting system that can show different light words in multiple settings.

Specification
The IM L7 will be fitted with 15 High-resolution cameras, 12 Ultrasonic sensors, 5 Radar sensors, five mm-wave radars, and a lidar, according to reports. The L7 will produce 540hp and 700 Newton-meters of torque, and it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in under 3.9 seconds. Diana White, Repin Black, and Rapheal Tea are the three colors offered for the model.

Services
IM provides its users with a service package named “zero-disturbance high-definition service experience” This package includes a high-definition service package, including auto insurance, vehicle maintenance, vehicle health inspection, and off-site insurance.
The package price starts from 8999 yuan (1,400 USD).

What constitutes a single charge?

How long do these electric cars take to full battery charging?

A single plugging of the car into the power source.

I am not sure for this particular model. But, for its price range, it should achieve 80% charge in some 30 minutes.

I could not find detailed info on battery specifications of this. Perhaps later will be revealed.

Honestly I'm in love with electric cars.
The more competition the better.
I am still for ICE cars personally. At least until ICE cars both look and feel like traditional cars. But I feel it won't happen. EVs will have their own feel.

Still, I would urge others to buy EVs, haha.

ICE more reliable. What happens during war time or other major disruption to society when most cities are using electric. Imagine if energy supply is restricted. This is those zombie movie scenario where those diesel or even petrol powered vehicles can be life saving.

But of course NEV is the future for human societies as we move forwards and make war a thing of past hopefully.

Tesla cyertruck has an option of solar panels (pre installed) and charging while its parked! so in case of a zombie situation I would prefer cybertruck rather than an ICE vehicle! :)

Not just the cybertruck but many high end NEV have solar panels on the roof. Just not mentioned as much these days since it's not so new.

However the solar panels are not going to compare to organic fuel in energy density or EROEI. Not sure how long it would take for those panels to fully charge a EV's batteries but I guess several days of charge equivalent?

Exactly the opposite, ICE cars have a huge advantage over it. Just in the last few months, the UK had a massive fuel shortage, All Iranian fuel pumps were hacked. It took long to get things running again.

Tesla's vision is also that every house would have its own solar panel array and a powerwall (Basically a battery) which could easily add in many kilometers to a car every day. Every house equipped with such a system is essentially an electrical grid of itself, and would continue to run regardless of centralized energy supply issues.

In that scenario then yeah but right now very few houses have that installed.

ICE still more reliable in the sense but yes disruptions to fuel supply is very real too. Battery makes energy storage possible for the grid sourced power though and that has many advantaged indeed for NEV.

I don't care about that honestly. The most comfortable, quiet, reliable, cheap to maintain and fuel and quickest are electric cars.

ICE is too much maintenance.
