At the same time, it is equipped with a flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel, following the principle of "Shy Tech" invisible technology, the number of physical keys of the whole vehicle has been greatly reduced, and the center console has indeed simplified a lot compared with previous models. In addition, the new car will also be equipped with embracing interactive light belt, hidden air conditioning outlet and light belt design into one, making the visual effect of the car more simple.
