Dong Shi | Avita 11 is the first to test drive, how the CHN platform works depends on your right foot

The protagonist of this Dong test is Avita 11 released last night.

To briefly introduce, this is a medium-sized pure electric SUV. The whole system is equipped with a 425kW dual-motor four-wheel drive system as standard. The biggest highlight is that it adopts the CHN platform representing the Changan Automobile, Huawei and Ningde era. There are three models in total:

  • 555km long-range dual-motor version, 349,900 yuan
  • 555km long-range dual-motor luxury version, 369,900 yuan
  • 680km ultra-long battery life dual motor luxury version, 409,900 yuan

Plus 20,000 yuan to upgrade a file, the difference is not big.

In addition to the car, the brand Avita has to say a few words. In the comment section last night, many people asked what brand this is, and even "that ah or something", Dong Chehui readers, it's very cute.

In November last year, Changan Automobile brought CATL and Huawei to launch this pure electric vehicle brand that emphasizes "high-end luxury" and "warmth and thoughtfulness". It is their pursuit to create a "smart car that understands users better."

The specifics will not be expanded. Dong Chehui participated in Avita's brand conference last year. Interested friends can click here to review.

This time, Dong Chehui came to Chongqing, the "happy hometown" of Changan Automobile, and had a preliminary experience of the Avita 11, which was given high hopes by Changan Automobile.

Before that, I had never been to Chongqing, and I didn't have much impression of this "climbing uphill" city. After this test drive, when it comes to Bayu, I should be able to think of this Avita 11, its unique selection of materials, breakthrough design, and flexible power.

But I feel that the temperament of this car may not be very suitable for this city full of rivers and lakes, and it does not quite fit the hard-working and honest image of Chongqing people.

Maybe, more like Shanghai?

Avita 11 looks very special.

Look at it from the angle above. The rounded rear is raised upwards, the full wheel arches contain large 22-inch rotary vane hubs, and there is a rear deck-type design under the inverted trapezoidal upright rear window, and an active rear wing is hidden inside. It will turn on automatically at 90km/h.

Of course, you can also leave it on, like this.

The best view of Avita 11 is from its front side.

It abandons the square shape of the traditional SUV, and is different from the usual fastback design. On this Avita 11, we can see the cross-border fusion of supercar and SUV. This feeling is actually special. The proportions of the body are given by—

The Avita 11 has an aspect ratio of 1.230, a wheel-to-height ratio of 0.481, and an axle-to-length ratio of 0.610.

Compare the Lamborghini Urus and you'll understand:

  • Aspect ratio: 1.230
  • Wheel height ratio: 0.482
  • Axial length ratio: 0.587

Is it very similar? The aspect ratio is even completely the same. At least in terms of aesthetics, the Avita 11 does have a so-called "cross-border supercar" feeling, which has achieved a balance between aesthetics and practicality.

The most controversial is the "squinting" of Avita 11. Avita officials said that this "disc-wing front face" was inspired by the side silhouette of a space vehicle. Two daytime running lights outline the front face and extend to the headlights below. If you want to sum it up in one word, the word "avant-garde" will be more appropriate.

Good or bad? For Avita's appearance, everyone can vote in the comment area.

You can still vote for the exterior, but I don't allow anyone to say that the interior is not good-looking.

Open the electric door of Avita 11 (all four doors are electric), sit in the driver's seat, and in front of you is a three-spoke steering wheel with exquisite shape and exquisite materials, and the yellow stitching adds a bit of fashion .

Behind the steering wheel, there is a sensor for the DMS driver detection system with a plastic cover that can be closed manually. The LCD meter behind is not large in size, but the information displayed is rich enough, such as gear position, speed, tire pressure, lane information, etc., are displayed.

The large-sized central control screen in the middle has a built-in Hongmeng smart cockpit, and there is also an LCD screen in front of the co-pilot, which is the same size as the main driver's instrument. Since this test drive is an engineering prototype, the car machine and intelligent driving system have not yet been perfected, so the experience of these two parts will not be launched this time.

However, according to the excellent performance of Huawei's smart cockpit and smart driving on other brands of models, we have reason to believe that Avita's experience will not be bad.

The core of the entire cockpit of Avita 11 lies in the "Vortex emotional vortex" behind the central control screen, which symbolizes the nerve center of the entire Avita 11.

Avita dubbed the car "emotional smart electric car", and the focus was naturally on the word "emotion" at the front. How to express emotions is the question they think about the most.

The Avita family is not the only brand that wants to give emotions to cars. The mainstream approach is to add a screen and put a virtual image in it. Avita expresses emotion in a more abstract way.

The beginning of Avita 11's communication with users is this "Vortex Emotional Eddy", which will give users feedback through color and sound. The entire cockpit is centered on it, following the keystone principle, and the entire interior unfolds completely symmetrically, extending to the front and rear doors.

Sitting in the Avita 11 is not only a visual pleasure, it is also satisfying in terms of ride comfort.

First of all, its seat configuration is very high. The front seats have heating, ventilation and massage functions. The rear seats can also be equipped with double multi-function seats, which support electric adjustment, and the front and rear adjustment range reaches 40 °.

▲The picture shows the five-seat version

As far as my experience is concerned, the space is definitely surprising. The problem is that the seat cushion of the passenger is a little hard, which is not as comfortable as the rear seat. I wonder if this will be the case for the mass-produced model.

On the other hand, the thicker seats are lacking in wrapping. When driving intensely, it is like throwing a chopstick into a thermos. Is there a picture?

At the same time, I found some small details that need to be optimized for the next-generation model, such as the position of the steering wheel at three or nine o’clock, the protruding silver trim panel is a bit awkward when grasping, and the transition is not smooth enough; for the position of the open/close button, The Avita can think a little more, especially in the rear, where passengers can't easily reach the buttons and open and close the doors gracefully.

At the driving level, due to the lack of intelligent driving functions, we cannot experience the power of the ultra-luxurious configuration of 3 lidars, 6 millimeter-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic radars, and 13 high-definition cameras, so simply say that it opens up. what is it like.

This Avita 11 has two modes in my hands – "luxury car mode" and "pirate ship mode".

Let’s talk about the “luxury car mode” first.

The front aluminum alloy double-wishbone and rear five-link independent suspension bring a very advanced ride quality, the suspension rebounds quickly, and it is very crisp when crossing the ditch, which is unexpectedly good. The front section of the brakes feels soft, but very linear, which helps to improve the driving experience. All in all, just two words – elegant.

At the same time, the Huawei DriveONE three-in-one electric drive with a maximum power of 425kW makes the acceleration and overtaking of Avita 11 extremely calm, as long as a foot of floor oil…

Here comes the trouble.

At this time, the Avita 11 enters "Corsair Mode", the vehicle will tilt its head for a long time during the acceleration process, and you will feel that the suspension can't keep up with the 425kW power system, although it still allows you to complete 3.98 seconds. 100 km acceleration. In addition to the rapid acceleration scene, the lack of suspension support will also appear in high-speed corners.

Yes, it is a feature, not a disadvantage.

The Avita 11 is not a car for cornering. Refinement, elegance, and calmness are its labels. In order to improve the limit of the chassis and sacrifice comfort, isn't this not doing everything you can?

So I say that the Avita 11 is more like Shanghai, not only because of its appearance and temperament, but also because Shanghai is too congested to drive fast cars, which is also one of the reasons.

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
