Meet the Roewe D7: A New Electric Sedan from China with a British Twist

You may not have heard of Roewe, but you probably know MG. Both are Chinese brands owned by SAIC, and both have a history of making cars with British roots. MG was once a famous sports car maker, while Roewe was born from the ashes of Rover. Now, both are focused on making electric vehicles for the 21st century.

One of the latest models from Roewe is the D7, a sleek and spacious electric sedan that will hit the Chinese market by the end of 2023. And the best part is, it could also come to the UK as an MG. Here’s everything you need to know about this potential new arrival.

What is the Roewe D7?

The Roewe D7 is a mid-to-high-end electric sedan that is part of a new series of EVs from Roewe. The series is called “D”, which stands for “dynamic”, “digital”, and “design”. That means the D7 is supposed to be fun to drive, packed with technology, and stylish to look at.

The D7 is based on a new platform called Nebula, which is also used by the MG 4 EV hatchback. The Nebula platform is very flexible and can support different types of EVs, such as sedans, SUVs, and MPVs. It can also accommodate different battery sizes, power outputs, and driving ranges.

What does the Roewe D7 look like?

What does the Roewe D7 look like?

The Roewe D7 has a futuristic appearance that makes it clear that it’s an electric car. The front end has narrow headlights and a closed grille with the Roewe logo. The lower bumper has a large air intake and maybe a lidar sensor for autonomous driving. The side profile has hidden door handles and a sloping roofline that gives it a coupe-like shape. The rear end has slim taillights and a subtle spoiler.

The dimensions of the Roewe D7 are 4890mm long, 1872mm wide, and 1510mm high. The wheelbase is 2810mm, which means it has plenty of room inside for passengers and luggage. According to Roewe, adults with a height of 1.8m can get 116mm of knee space in the second row. That’s more than enough to stretch your legs or do some yoga. The front and rear trunks have a combined volume of 447L. That’s enough to fit your golf clubs or your shopping bags.

What’s under the hood of the Roewe D7?

The Roewe D7 offers two powertrain options, both with a single electric motor. The first option has a 194bhp motor and a lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery. This version has a claimed range of up to 317 miles on the Chinese CLTC test cycle. That’s more than enough to drive from London to Edinburgh without stopping. The second option has a 208bhp motor and a nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery. This version has a range of 379 miles. That’s enough to drive from Paris to Berlin without recharging. The top speed for both versions is 170 km/h. That’s not very fast compared to some other EVs, but it’s still faster than most speed limits.

The interior details of the Roewe D7 have not been revealed yet, but we can expect a high-tech dashboard with a large touchscreen and digital instrument cluster. The Roewe D7 will also have a sunroof, side rear radar, side front radar, rear radar, and front radar.

When can I buy the Roewe D7?

The Roewe D7 will be launched in China by the end of 2023. It will compete with other electric sedans in the Chinese market, such as the Volkswagen ID 7, the Tesla Model 3, and the Hyundai Ioniq 6.

There is no official confirmation whether the Roewe D7 will be sold in other markets, but it is possible that it will be rebranded as an MG for export. MG is already selling some models that were originally launched as Roewes in China, such as the MG 5 SW EV and the MG Marvel R.

Why should I consider the Roewe D7?

The Roewe D7 is an attractive option for anyone who wants an electric sedan that combines style, space, and range. The Roewe D7 has a modern design that stands out from the crowd. It also has a spacious cabin that can accommodate five adults comfortably. And it has a long driving range that can meet most daily needs.

The Roewe D7 is also expected to have a competitive price tag that will make it more affordable than some of its rivals. The exact price has not been announced yet, but it will likely be lower than the Volkswagen ID 7 or the Tesla Model 3.
