The SAIC Motor Corp. electric vehicle subsidiary, IM Motors, with headquarters in Shanghai, has formally introduced its most recent product, the IM L6 electric car.
With the release of the much awaited IM L6, IM Motors, a SAIC Motor Corp. affiliate, has been creating waves in the automotive industry. It gained notice for reaching 71 km/h on the moose test without a driver. Furthermore, IM asserts that the launch of a brand-new 130 kWh “solid-state battery (SSB)” with a 1,000 km CLTC range is a breakthrough in the battery technology for electric vehicles.

IM L6 Dimensions and Colours

With a wheelbase of 2950 mm, the IM L6 measures 4931 mm in length, 1960 mm in width, and 1474 mm in height. Along with the limited-edition Nevis Blue hue, it comes in seven colours: Rembrandt Grey, Ferdinand Pink, Sisley Yellow, Ares Black, Athena White, and Raphael Tea.

IM L6 Versions

L6 Max Standard: 75 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery / 400V / RWD / 216 kW & 450 Nm electric motor output / 200 km/h top speed

L6 Max Long-Range: 83 kWh ternary lithium battery / 800V / RWD / 248 kW & 500 Nm electric motor output / 220 km/h top speed

L6 Max Ultra-Long Range: 100 kWh ternary lithium battery / 900V / RWD / 300 kW & 500 Nm electric motor output / 222 km/h top speed

L6 Max Super Performance: 100 kWh ternary lithium battery / 900V / AWD / 579 kW & 800 Nm combined electric motor outputs / 268 km/h top speed

L6 Max Lightyear: 133 kWh semi-solid-state battery / 900V / AWD / 268 km/h top speed / 12 minutes of charging can replenish 400 km of battery life.

IM L6 Battery and Charging Speed

IM asserted during the event that the Lightyear battery is a “solid-state battery” with a voltage of 900V. It only takes 12 minutes to add 400 kilometers of range at 400 kilowatts. IM promises a range of more than a thousand kilometers for the CLTC. Lightyear Max, the highest trim variation, includes this as standard.

Contrary to what its name suggests, the battery is semi-solid state, which means that some solid species are present in the energy-carrying fluid. The 130 kWh Lightyear “solid-state battery” from IM Motors is said to be the first mass-produced, ultra-fast charging semi-solid-state battery in the industry.

A range of 700–770 km CLTC is offered by two NMC battery options with standard liquid electrolytes, 90 kWh and 100 kWh, in other variations.

IM L6 Interior Comfort and Technologies

The brand’s newest model is the IM L6. Its dimensions are 4931/1960/1474 mm with a 2950 mm wheelbase. As a liftback sedan, it carries over the design language of previous IM models while providing greater flexibility and cargo space. POPO seats are used inside. The rear passengers can utilize the phone, tablet, or mirror that is attached to the magnetic suction discs on the back of the front seat. Its roof is expansive and panoramic. Rear seats with a 60/40 split that fold down offer greater flexibility for transporting large bags.

Qualcomm 8295, LiDAR, and Nvidia Orin X are features of the IM L6. It offers cutting-edge features like City Drive, which displays local content on the dashboard of the vehicle, and multi-angle Carlog, which records Vlogs within the vehicle using built-in cameras. Additionally, the vehicle has intelligent driving features.

Moreover, the car has DZT dynamic tracking technology, which uses a 360-degree camera to locate potentially dangerous items. Within this year, the company plans to launch its city NOA driving assistance nationwide.

Additionally, a “Apple ecosystem plugin” is available in the new automobile to mirror pictures from iPhones.

IM L6 Driver Assistance Features

The first generation of VMC (Vehicle Motion Control) smart digital chassis technology, which includes air suspension, clever electronic dampening, rear-wheel steering, and other features, will be used in the new vehicle. Innovative manoeuvres like as “crab walking” in narrow spaces and sophisticated parallel parking are made possible by this technology.

A self-developed “Hurricane motor” with a maximum speed of 21,000 rpm powers the IM L6. It takes 2.74 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. The 200 kW and 379 kW dual-motor four-wheel-drive variant has two motors. It can travel up to 268 km/h at its fastest. For the single-motor variants, there are three options: 216 kW, 248 kW, and 300 kW.
