The M9 was officially released, starting from 469,800 yuan, and the chassis and intelligent cockpit ushered in a big upgrade.

The Wenjie M9 was officially released at today’s Wenjie M9 and Huawei Winter Full Scene Conference, which not only brought a new technology flagship to the Wenjie brand, but also was the first vehicle to support NCA in the city. The release of the M9 model in the world is of great significance to the brand of HarmonyOS Zhixing.

In terms of body size, the M9 is positioned as a flagship SUV and adopts a luxurious D-class body platform with a size of 5230 * 1999 * 1800 mm.. The vertical seating space has reached 2757mm, and the three rows of seating space have performed very well, even the three rows of space can reach 950 mm. As a three-row full-size SUV, the space performance of the M9 is quite good.

In terms of chassis, Wenjie M9 is equipped with a new Turing chassis, which is the same as Zhijie S7. However, according to the characteristics of SUV products and off-road scenes, the M9 has been specially optimized. The M9 reduces the problem that the steering radius of full-size SUV is too large by increasing the front wheel angle, which is different from the rear wheel steering scheme used by most brands. The front wheel angle of the Q-junction M9 reaches 41.75 degrees, the steering radius of the Q-junction M9 is similar to that of a medium-sized car, and the body is more flexible.

In addition, in order to create better outdoor road trafficability, Wenjie M9 is equipped with a closed air suspension with an adjustable range of 80mm based on the standard ground clearance of 175 mm.. At the speed of 110km/h, the system will automatically reduce the height of 20mm suspension to reduce the wind resistance in high-speed environment.

In terms of power, the M9 series is optimized for the use scenarios of SUV models, and the maximum torque is strengthened to improve the dynamic response in mountain roads and steep slopes. The maximum torque of the pure electric version reaches 673Nm, and the extended range version reaches 675Nm, which can climb a higher angle ramp.

In terms of battery life, the extended range version of Wenjie M9 benefits from the addition of a new extended range platform. The comprehensive battery life of the 52-degree battery version is 1402km, and the comprehensive battery life of the 42-degree battery version is 1362km. The pure electric version is equipped with Huawei’s "Whale" 800V high-voltage battery platform, and the CLTC battery life reaches 630km, which can be charged for 150km in 5 minutes.

In terms of intelligent cockpit, the M9 adds AR-HUD, integrated universal triple screen and rear giant screen projection. The new triple screen adds a co-pilot entertainment screen, and the co-pilot entertainment screen supports different accounts from the main driver’s login, so the main driver and co-pilot can open different applications at the same time. And through gesture operation, the co-pilot user can transfer the video, games and other pictures to the central control screen or any display device in the back row, which greatly improves the experience of the intelligent cockpit.

In addition, because the three rows of cockpits all have HUAWEI MagLink interface, the second and third rows of seats can be matched with flat panels as expansion screens, and with the display space provided by AR-HUD, the whole car can be fully equipped with up to 10 screens. And the co-pilot can transfer the co-pilot picture to any screen in the back row, and can also specify the display content of this screen, so the concurrent experience advantage of the intelligent cockpit is obvious.

In terms of intelligent driving, Wenjie M9 is equipped with Huawei ADS 2.0 intelligent driving system, but it has been upgraded in lidar and other aspects. The newly designed 192-line laser radar is adopted in the M9, which has stronger accurate detection and quick response ability, and the intelligent driving ability has been further improved.

Most importantly, Yu Chengdong officially announced at the press conference that Huawei’s ADS 2.0 intelligent driving system had achieved the goal that NCA in urban areas could be opened nationwide by the end of December, which was the first enterprise to announce that it could be opened nationwide. The M9 will also be the first car equipped with this function, and the M5/M7 car will be updated by OTA.

In terms of price, the M9 released four versions, two models for extended range and two models for pure electric version. The extended range version is priced at 469,800 yuan and 529,800 yuan respectively, and the pure electric version is priced at 509,800 yuan and 569,800 yuan respectively. After the release, you can enjoy the matching rights and benefits worth 10,000 yuan, and the scale delivery will be gradually opened on February 26, 2024.

Summary:As the flagship model of the car brand, the car brand M9 uses a new chassis, richer technology configuration and the latest iterative ADS 2.0 intelligent driving system, which well supports the name of the flagship class. For users who just need a full-size SUV, the M9 will be a very worthwhile model.
