Ideal MPV road test was photographed, its first pure electric model
Recently, Ideal revealed the news about X02 and X03 on Weibo. I believe that the legendary X02 or L8 will be released soon. In addition, Ideal's first pure electric platform model is MPV, which has gradually surfaced recently.
The front windshield is shaped to enhance driving visibility, and there are triangular windows, similar to those found on previous Honda models such as the Fit.
According to the information disclosed in the previous prospectus of Ideal Automobile, Whale and Shark platform models will be launched from 2023, and at least two high-voltage pure electric vehicles will be launched every year. The ideal MPV exposed this time is based on the Whale platform, code-named W01 's model.
Motor1 recently showed a rendering of Volvo's new generation XC90. From the closed grille, it can be seen that this is a pure electric car with design elements of Polestar.
The patent diagram shows that the new generation of XC90 has a vertical central control screen and a through-type air conditioner outlet, and there is also enough storage space below.
It is worth noting that according to the information disclosed by motor1, the positioning of the next-generation XC90 is not a flagship SUV, and a more powerful XC100 will appear.
Although it is said to be a replacement, from the appearance, Dong Chejun can't experience the feeling of a new look. Regarding Volvo, I prefer V60 and XC60.

Polestar announced that the concept car Polestar O₂ will be put into mass production, and the production version is named "Polestar 6", which is a pure electric hardtop convertible sports car with a fully custom bonded aluminum platform.
In terms of power, the Polestar 6 is equipped with dual motors, with a maximum power output of 650 kW and a torque of 900 Nm, and an acceleration time of 3.2s per 100 kilometers.
It is worth mentioning that Polestar O₂ has an aerial photography drone at the rear, developed by Polestar and Hoco Flow in cooperation, which can automatically shoot during the car process, with a maximum follow-up speed of 90 km/h.
Seeing this reminds me that Tony Stark, Iron Man, has an aerial drone.
