Beiqi Jihu Launches Darwin 2.0: Smart Travel Experience Redefined with Advanced Technology Modules

Apr 12, 2024

On April 11, Beiqi Jihu launched the Darwin 2.0 technology brand in Beijing. Based on the advanced IMC architecture, the brand integrates and innovates seven major technology modules to bring users a smart travel experience. Whether it’s the remarkable improvement in safety performance, meticulous care for health and environmental protection, or the perfect combination of intelligence and comfort, it all reflects Beiqi Jihu’s deep care and respect for users.

Beijing Electric Vehicle Party Secretary and General Manager Dai Kangwei said at the press conference: “We always believe that technology is for serving people. The launch of the Darwin 2.0 technology brand demonstrates our in-depth insight into user needs and technological strength.” He emphasized that Beijing Jiuhu will continue to focus on changes and needs of users, promote the continuous evolution and innovation of technology through the concept of human evolution, and create a better and more convenient future life for users. Aurora Battery In the field of performance, Jiuhu vehicles integrate the advantages of new energy vehicles and traditional fuel vehicles by combining the “Aurora” battery, “Extreme” power, and “Elegance” chassis, hitting the deep attention points of every consumer with performance needs. The Aurora battery has maintained a record of zero spontaneous combustion so far. Everything stems from the all-weather and all-round safety protection provided by Jiuhu vehicles in three extreme scenarios: battery hitting the bottom, heavy rain and flooding, and high temperature spontaneous combustion.

The bottom of the battery is equipped with the original “Xuanwu Armor”, which is made of aerospace-grade materials and processes, forming 7 layers of protection with a strength of 1500MPa, comparable to an armored vehicle, while also considering insulation, heat preservation, heat conduction, and corrosion prevention, fully taking into account the complexity of the environment. In addition, the “space capsule sealing” technology pioneered by Aurora Battery. Choosing a highly hydrophobic silicon-based material as the substrate, with a hydrophobic rate of 97%, under the conditions of being submerged in 2 meters of water for 48 hours, no water enters, far exceeding the industry average. The “fire blanket insulation” technology integrates the functions of blocking, repelling, and controlling, ensuring that only smoke is emitted without catching fire, zero spontaneous combustion, and safeguarding personal safety. With 20 processes, over 6000 control points. There is also a full life cycle verification system and a 360 full-time steward, ensuring the durability of Aurora vehicles at all times and guarding every trip. Extreme Power Equipped with the fourth-generation front and rear dual motors of Extreme Power, the Aurora Alpha S5 has a total power exceeding 530 horsepower, a wheel torque of 7000N·m, and a zero-to-one hundred acceleration time of just 3.7 seconds, comparable to a Porsche 911.

Spiritual chassis The spiritual chassis, tested in various scenarios and fine-tuned by world-class masters, combined with intelligent technology, ensures comfort in all driving conditions. Jihoo cars also ensure stability and safety in high-speed driving and emergency avoidance with intelligent braking system, intelligent steering system, intelligent suspension system, and custom-made sport tires in collaboration with Michelin. In track tests, Jihoo Alpha S5’s lap time is comparable to Tesla Model 3 Performance version. Intelligence In the field of intelligence, Jihoo cars’ “second-generation intelligent cockpit” is equipped with the new Lingzhi OS system, with four core capabilities: understanding, decision-making, correlation, and generation, providing a digital assistant-like service experience. Through the “Baimohui Creation Platform”, Lingzhi OS can deeply understand user needs and provide more intelligent and personalized services. In terms of hardware configuration, Jihoo cars use 34 leading high-performance sensing hardware, achieving all-weather, all-round environmental perception, ensuring the safety and reliability of the intelligent driving system. In terms of software algorithms, Jihoo cars have also improved obstacle recognition rate through innovative BEV+Transformer+Occ solution and introduced interactive game theory algorithms to optimize driving path planning and improve traffic efficiency. Not only making breakthroughs in intelligent cockpit technology, Jihoo cars have also comprehensively optimized passenger comfort. In collaboration with the Tsinghua University Center for Art and Science Research, they have introduced color designs that appeal to the Chinese aesthetic, such as “organic green” and “lavender purple” interiors, as well as a high-end sound system with 7.1.4 “panoramic sound” layout, providing users with the ultimate audiovisual enjoyment.

In addition, the Jihuxia automobile has achieved nearly full marks in the C-NCAP active safety assessment, and has obtained the “5+ star” certification in the C-ICAP, always leading in the field of intelligent driving. It has been granted the first batch of L3 level automatic driving public road test license in China, and actively participated in the national intelligent connected vehicle access pilot declaration work, indicating that Jihuxia automobile will soon bring L3 level automatic driving experience to users. Jihuxia Safety Through Jihuxia Safety, Jihuxia automobile has built a comprehensive safety protection system based on six major safety shields, not only possessing all-scenario warning capabilities, but also exceeding global collision safety standards. The new car has successfully completed the first four-car three-direction chain collision test on the entire network.

Not only that, the Jihoo car also incorporates the concept of safety throughout the product’s entire lifecycle, extensively using aluminum alloy and double-sided galvanized steel plates to achieve submarine-level corrosion resistance performance. The Jihoo Alpha S is the first model in China to receive the CA-CAP platinum level evaluation for corrosion resistance in passenger cars. The safety of Jihoo cars is not limited to traditional active and passive safety measures. In terms of information security, Jihoo cars have achieved zero leaks, providing users with financial-grade security information protection. JiClean Health Through JiClean Health, Jihoo cars bring ultimate protection from respiratory health to contact health. With 5 industry-leading technologies including adsorption degradation black technology materials, forward design simulation verification technology, maternal and child antibacterial technology, antiviral technology, and odorless anti-dust mite technology, Jihoo cars’ interior cleanliness and health have become the industry leader, ushering in the era of interior health 3.0.
