How is it going to shape the future?

In addition to the intelligent driving upgrades, the iCar 03 models feature enhancements such as an Infinity audio system, ambient lighting options, and heating functions for seats and steering wheels. With a dual-motor four-wheel drive system, 205 kW of power, and a 65.69 kWh battery pack, these models offer impressive performance figures. Notably, the vehicles can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds, achieve a top speed of 150 km/h, and provide a pure electric range of 501 km. Furthermore, fast charging capabilities make recharging convenient and quick, ensuring a seamless driving experience across diverse terrains with support for 8+X all-road driving modes.
