SAIC Roewe RX5 collected by Beijing Auto Museum
The vehicle model Roewe RX5, made bySAIC Motor Corporation Limited, won the 4th Xuanyuan Award and became an exhibit at the Beijing Auto Museum on Sept 2.
Beijing Auto Museum is the first museum of its kind in China. It is the place for exchanging and collecting automobile culture and for demonstrating the impact of the automobile industry on the development of science and technology.
The Xuanyuan Awards focus on how vehicles can facilitate people’s lives and the impact of new technologies on the automobile industry. As a winner of the award, the Roewe RX5 boasts advantages in many different aspects.
As an internet vehicle, the Roewe RX5 presents drivers with unprecedented driving experiences through its advanced internet system which provides intelligent solutions for different situations.
In regular situations, such as refueling, parking, repair and maintenance, the clients can conduct payments through Alipay, the world’s largest online and mobile payment platform. The voice recognition technology will turn on the air conditioner if the client says: “It’s hot.” The remote control system allows drivers to control the vehicle without getting close to it. The Roewe RX5 can be connected to unmanned planes and sports cameras, which can help the client take better pictures and videos.
The vehicle also boasts exquisite appearance and the advanced NetBlue power technology developed by SAIC. In addition, buyers can enjoy a range of preferential treatments, such as life-long free basic service.
Thanks to these advantages, just three months after it was launched in July 2016, the Roewe RX5 made into the top 10 of the SUV sales list. By this July, as many as 210,000 vehicles were sold, breaking the monopoly of joint venture brands in the SUV market. The vehicle also won the iF Design Award 2017 and Red Dot Award’s China Good Design – two German international industrial design awards.
Following the world-first mass production internet vehicle, the Roewe RX5, SAIC Motor launched a series of internet automobile products, which include the Roewe i6, Roewe ei6, Roewe eRX5, Roewe ERX5, and the new Roewe 950 and Roewe e950.
