“Chinese Google” introduced a special version of its electric crossover. Robo-01 Lunar Edition is built on the Geely platform, accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and features oddly placed screens
The automotive division of Baidu Corporation (it is also called the “Chinese Google”) introduced a special version of the Lunar Edition of its serial electric car Robo 01.
The mention of the Moon in the title is not at all accidental, because the special version was created in conjunction with the Chinese project to explore the natural satellite of the Earth (Chinese Lunar Exploration Program, CLEP). While this is marketing, of course, there is no space technology in the Lunar Edition. But there are noticeable differences from the basic version. First of all, these are light gold and matte decorative elements that make the car stand out in the stream. The cabin also received new decor, and the seats have Lunar Edition lettering.
Robo 01 dimensions are 4853 x 1990 x 1611 mm, wheelbase – 3000 mm.
The electric crossover is very well equipped. The developers announced a level 4 autopilot for it, running on two Nvidia Orin X chips, supplemented by a Qualcomm 8295 SoC. In addition, the car received two lidars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and 12 cameras.
Jidu Robo 01 is based on Geely’s SEA architecture, which underpins the Zeekr 001, Radar RD6, Smart #1, some Volvo and Polestar models. The power plant, consisting of two electric motors, develops 544 hp. The car accelerates to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The CATL battery has a capacity of 100 kWh. The power reserve is 600 kilometers (according to the CLTC method).
In the cabin, attention is drawn to the large display with a diagonal of 35.6 inches and a very strange arrangement. It is not shifted to the left – so that the driver has a full-fledged screen, but is installed exactly in the center. But since the length of the screen is noticeably less than the length of the front panel, it turns out that the display only reaches half of the steering wheel.
There is also a screen at the back, and it is also placed very strangely: between the seats – in the area where the armrest ends. It is unlikely that the rear row passengers will be comfortable constantly looking down.
The Jidu Robo 01 Lunar Edition is priced at $55,120. The car will be released in a limited series of 1000 cars. Standard versions of Robo 01 will go on sale in China before the end of the year.
