CES Asia 2019 officially opened at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre on June 11. Always Auto not only unveiled its U7 ion concept car but also released a new digital partner APP and "Always smart companion technology" which integrates eight AI technologies.
Cai Jianjun (蔡建军), the executive vice president of Always Auto, said that the Auto industry is undergoing profound changes. Auto consumption will change from a hardware model that has lasted for hundreds of years to a "hardware + software" model that provides users with content and services. The company will improve the user experience through intelligent networking interaction to meet the personalized needs of users.
Always Auto is a NEV company founded in 2017. Media reports said that Always Auto has received a strategic investment of CNY 1 billion ( USD 148 million ) from Mingchi fund (明驰基金).
In addition, Always Auto indirectly addressed the company's manufacturing credentials in a roundabout way. The U5, the first mass-production vehicle of Always Auto, was unveiled at the end of last year and is scheduled to go on sale by the end of this year.
