The level 2 assisted driving features include full-speed adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, lane departure warning, lane departure assist, lane change assist, blind spot monitoring, rear collision warning, door opening warning, traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, and lane keeping assist.

The 0 – 100 km/h acceleration time is 6.5 seconds, the top speed is 150 km/h, and the pure electric range is 501 km, according to Chinese media AutoHome. Under fast charging, it takes 30 minutes to charge from 30% to 80%). Additionally, 8+X all-road driving modes are supported.
