Initially scheduled to launch on April 16, the second model of LI Auto will be launched on Tuesday, June 21 and arrive in Chinese stores on July 1. The automaker announced on Sunday via its official app that will commence the test-drives for its SUV model on July 16.

Fully self-developed high-efficiency range-extending electric system with a 44.5kWh battery pack, the ideal L9 can achieve 1315km battery life (CLTC operating conditions), of which the battery life is 215km, LI Auto said.

L9 features an intelligent driving computing power platform that includes two Nvidia Orin-x processors, the total power reaches 508Tops, and the dual processors are redundant with each other’s computing power, making the intelligent driving system more stable.

The cumulative deliveries of LI ONE have reached 171,467 since the vehicle’s market debut in 2019.
