The American research, data and analytics company JD Power and the Human-Vehicle Relationship Laboratory (HVR Lab) ranked the smartest cars on the Chinese market. The rating did not include Geely, Chery and Haval, which are quite well known in Russia.
When compiling the rating, two indices were taken into account, as well as expert data. The first index, C-HVR, evaluates the effectiveness of human-vehicle interaction, as well as the interactive features of the car and their ability to keep people on the road. The second index (VOC) also takes into account the ability to interact with passengers, the convenience of the interface and the ease of use of smart functions.
JD Power said that smart cars in China have already reached a new level. The average result of cars in the top ten was 7.9 points, which is 0.4 points higher than the average result of 60 models that took part in the selection.
The Nio ET7 sedan was praised for the performance of the NOMI voice assistant, which perfectly recognizes the voice even with a noise of 80 dB. The XPeng G9 crossover stood out with a high-quality seat massage system and atmospheric lighting. HiPhi X was noted for its user-friendly menus and ease-of-use screens.
