SAIC Group's Feifan Auto, previously known as R Auto, today officially unveiled its new R7 model, becoming the second carmaker after NIO to offer a battery swap-enabled model for the general consumers.
The model is positioned as a mid-size coupe SUV, similar to NIO's EC6. Its length, width and height are 4,900 mm, 1,925 mm and 1,655 mm respectively, and its wheelbase is 2,950 mm.
For comparison, the NIO EC6 measures 4,850 mm in length, 1,965 mm in width and 1,731/1,714 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,900 mm.
The Feifan R7 has a slide-back shape and has a class-leading wind resistance coefficient of 0.238 Cd, the company said. The lowest-priced version of the NIO EC6 has a wind resistance coefficient of 0.265 Cd, and the other two versions have 0.26 Cd.
Feifan says the R7's motor has a peak power of 400 kW and a peak torque of 700 Nm, giving the car a 0-100 km/h acceleration time in the 4-second class. The company has not announced specific acceleration performance at this time.
The Feifan R7 has a range of more than 600 kilometers, according to the company.
The model features a LiDAR setup on the roof similar to that of the NIO ET7 and ET5, with the supplier being Luminar of the US. The LiDAR uses a 1550nm light source and has a maximum detection distance of over 500 meters.
The Feifan R7 will be equipped with Nvidia's Orin smart driving chip, although it is not clear how many will be used in the model, as the NIO ET7 and ET5 both use four chips.
The car's smart cockpit is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip and also offers AR HUD functionality, somewhat similar to the PanoCinema that NIO mentioned when announcing the ET5.
In addition to these features, the Feifan R7 will most notably support battery swap similar to NIO's.
The company unveiled its "Rising Power" solution, saying its battery is replaceable and upgradeable, a feature NIO has previously emphasized for its own models.
Feifan said its model can replace a battery in as little as 2.5 minutes. For comparison, NIO said its battery swap process takes 3 minutes.
Feifan has not announced its plans to build battery swap stations.
The Feifan R7 is available for pre-order today and offers discount benefits to those who pre-order. Pricing information for the model is unknown at this time.
