Jiyue 01

Jiyue was founded as Jidu in 2021 as the joint venture between Baidu and Geely. The “Chinese Google” had 55% of the shares in this JV. However, it failed to get mass-production permission, so the company was restructured. Its name was changed to Jiyue, and Geely now holds 65% of the stake, taking care of manufacturing. Baidu is responsible for software, ADAS, and connectivity. The first Jiyue model is the 01 SUV. In 2024, this brand will launch its second car, which is the Jiyue 07.

The Jiyue 07 is based on the Jidu Robo-02 concept. It is a mid-size liftback with sleek styling, wide wheel arches, and a low beltline.
