Cross-border cooperation between Seres and Huawei
On 19 April 2021, Chinese carmaker SERES and electronics giant Huawei formally announced close cooperation at the 19th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition. The two parties will deeply integrate technology and products to make each other stronger and provide users with high-quality intelligent mobility solutions. During the press conference, the SERES Huawei Smart Selection SF5 was officially launched. This longer range electric vehicle, the new Seres 5, is currently available in Huawei’s flagship stores throughout China.
Consumers regularly express concerns about the range and charging of electric vehicles. In response, Huawei and Seres have developed a new electric range extension system. Equipped with Huawei DriveONE Three-in-one Electric Drive, the system is an optimal solution to range anxiety. The new Seres 5 offers drivers flexibility with an extended range of over 1,000 km in long-range mode. Its powerful capabilities allow it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.68 seconds. In addition, this powerful performance is supported by the lightweight aluminium chassis, double wishbone front suspension and trapezoidal multi-link rear suspension. As a result, the Seres 5 can be described as a true performance beast, delivering faster acceleration while maintaining stable tilt control and superior shock absorption.
With Huawei HiCar solutions, users can switch effortlessly between their mobile phone and the car’s central control panel. This gives them anytime, anywhere access to their navigation, music and much more. In addition, the car can also connect to smart devices, allowing the driver to control the air conditioning and other connected devices from home with great ease.
The new Seres 5 has a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging mode, which can provide emergency power to vehicles stranded without electricity. It also offers a vehicle-to-load (V2L) camping power mode, which can even power induction cookers, radios and other appliances.
The front seats are equipped with sporty, precisely finished seats with ventilation, heating and massage functions. A smart welcome mode also makes getting in and out of the car comfortable and easier.
Seres and Huawei share the same innovative genius and pragmatic value where “Customer first, Quality first” is an enormous value within this close cooperation.
Interested parties can currently only obtain the Seres 5 from Huawei flagstores across China. The Belgian market will have to be patient until September 2021 to get to know the Seres 5. Earlier this year Seres launched its first EV in Belgium: the Seres 3. This Seres 5 will also be distributed in Belgium via OneAutomotive’s dealer network, which currently consists of 15 sales outlets and will expand to 25 by the end of 2021.
