China’s Geely Holding and Baidu’s next-generation joint-venture automotive robocar brand, JiYue, has launched its flagship vehicle and first AI powered electric ROBOCAR JiYUE 01. The model was launched at a brand event in Shanghai, China.
The vehicle is based on Geely’s SEA (Sustainable Experience Architecture), and Baidu’s automotive AI technology solutions such as Apollo intelligent autonomous driving solutions suite.
The ROBOCAR JiYue 01 is also the world’s first model to support voice-activated/controlled parking while outside the vehicle.
Two battery options are offered 71.4kWh and 100kWh providing users with 550km and 720km CLTC electric range respectively.
With high-speed charging, the vehicle can be charged from 10% to 80% in under 30 minutes.
It adds: ‘The AI system also integrates multi-modal interactions including voice, gestures, and visual cues to enhance personalization to the users. SIMO is backed by Baidu’s integrated AI system Ernie Bot enabling it to continue growing and develop logical reasoning and strategic planning capabilities’.
Deliveries of the ROBOCAR JiYue 01 nationwide in the Chinese market will start after the vehicle launch.
