Avatr 11 and 011 EVs to Be Unveiled at Auto Chongqing 2022
Chinese electric vehicle brand Avatr, a joint project of Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL, announced on Tuesday that its 11 and 011 models will be unveiled at the 2022 Chongqing International Auto Exhibition from June 25 to July 3.
The “New Generation SEV Technology Platform CHN,” the result of collaboration between the three parent firms, will also reportedly be launched at the event. It shows off three main features: “new platform, big computing power and high voltage charging.”
The Avatr 11 was unveiled globally on November 15 of last year and is already available for pre-orders. The model is equipped with CATL’s ternary lithium-ion batteries, with a total capacity of 90.38kWh and a maximum range of 600km. Another model with a range of over 700km is also being developed in parallel.
In addition, this car supports a 750V high-voltage charging system with a maximum charging power of 240kW, which can be charged from 30% to 80% in 15 minutes. The first active automotive noise reduction technology with independently developed algorithmic road noise cancellation (RNC) actively limits sound in the car through the real-time calculations of vibration sensors and microphones.
Previously, Changan Automobile said that Huawei’s Intelligent Driving R&D team had more than a thousand people permanently stationed in Chongqing to work with them on the joint development of the Avatr 11.
On the other hand, the Avatr 011 is a limited edition model of the 11 series, with only 500 units worldwide. It has been designed by Givenchy’s Creative Director, Matthew M. Williams. It comes in only one body color – glossy black – and will be officially delivered in the fourth quarter of the year.
The Avatr 011 measures in at 4880*1970*1601mm in length, width and height, with a wheelbase of 2975mm. Powered by a dual-motor four-wheel drive system with a maximum power of 425kW, the model comes with a super-sensory system and supercomputing platform, including three LIDARs, six millimeter wave radars, 12 ultrasonic radars, and 13 cameras. It will also have a range of more than 700km, 0-100km/h acceleration in less than 4 seconds, and it will use 200kW fast-charging technology.
