In terms of car body colors, the Nezha X offers a total of five exterior colors: pearl white, clear sky gray, ultimate black, glacier blue, and amber brown. Among them, 40% of car owners choose pearl white, indicating that the majority of Nezha X owners are more practical. The first OTA upgrade of Nezha X also includes 7 new features such as DMS driver status monitoring system, Nezha fun, Raystone KTV, nap + car wash mode, and new interactive gestures, as well as up to 100 feature experience optimizations such as home music cards, integrated automatic parking, intelligent auxiliary driving simulation display, covering safety, entertainment, smart driving, and practical functions, bringing users a more intelligent, convenient, and comfortable driving experience.

Nezha X has added the DMS driver status monitoring system, which includes fatigue driving reminder, distracted driving reminder, and Bluetooth call control. When the vehicle speed is greater than 10km/h, if the driver yawns, closes their eyes for a long time, or drives continuously for more than 4 hours, the system will trigger the fatigue driving reminder. At the same time, when the vehicle speed is greater than 30km/h, if the driver is distracted for a long time or holds a phone to make a call, the system will trigger the distracted driving reminder to prevent accidents. The Bluetooth call control function only requires the driver to nod or shake their head to answer or hang up a Bluetooth call, reducing the interference of incoming calls on the driving process. Nezha X has upgraded the parking assistance alarm function, which allows the driver to observe the vehicle’s position through the main page environment simulation page. When a collision is possible, the system will promptly alert the driver of the potential obstacle collision risk, greatly improving the safety of parking.

In terms of interaction, Nezha X also upgrades three interaction gestures – sliding up and down with two fingers on the left hand can adjust the volume, sliding up and down with two fingers on the right hand can adjust the screen brightness, and quickly sliding with three fingers can close the current application. The entire operation logic is closer to a tablet, with lower difficulty and more convenient operation. For operations during driving, it can better achieve blind operation to reduce safety hazards caused by driver distraction.

The OTA update also upgraded the screen saver and screen off functions, providing a variety of screen saver options, and reducing interface information and brightness. This can improve driving safety for newbies or when driving at night, by reducing the impact of excessive screen information and bright images on the driver to some extent.

At the initial launch of NIO’s ES8, the official evaluation of the car was “horizontal screen, digital intelligence”, indicating that it will focus more on intelligent development. Therefore, the intelligent cockpit experience is particularly important. With this OTA upgrade, the ES8 also brings two personalized scene modes: nap mode and car wash mode. In nap mode, the seat back will automatically adjust, soothing music will play, the air conditioning will be set to a comfortable temperature, creating a comfortable rest atmosphere; in car wash mode, you can enter car wash mode with one click, the vehicle will automatically close the windows, fold the rearview mirrors, and disable automatic wipers, remote vehicle control, and other functions.
