On August 14, Geely holding Group officially announced the upgrading of Baidu Geely strategic cooperation, its new car robot brand "Ji Yue" was established, and the first model was named "Ji Yue 01". As a new Geely brand, people may be unfamiliar with the name "Jiyue Automobile", but in fact, Jiyue Automobile is considered to be renamed from Jidu Automobile. As for why to change the name, people familiar with the matter have said: "at present, the domestic automobile production qualification examination is strict, and the name change may be related to compliance."
Before the emergence of Jiyue Motors, Jidu Motors was jointly built by Geely and Baidu. Ji du Automobile can be regarded as the carrier of Baidu car. In January 2021, Baidu and Geely Holdings announced a partnership to build a car, based on Geely's newly developed global leading pure electric architecture, the vast SEA Intelligent Evolutionary experience Architecture, to work closely together in smart car manufacturing related areas to build smart cars. In December of the following year, Jidu Automobile took part in the 2022 Guangzhou International Auto Show and unveiled its ROBO-01. The car is based on Geely SEA's vast architecture and is positioned as a medium and large SUV.
According to the plan, the delivery of the first model of Jidu Automobile will begin in the third quarter of this year, but at the Shanghai Auto Show held in April this year, Jidu Automobile was forced to be absent from the Shanghai Auto Show because it did not have the qualification to build cars. According to media reports at the time, because Jidu Automobile did not have the qualification to build cars, and the relevant departments required that the participating car companies must have the qualification to build cars, the organizers of the Shanghai Auto Show rejected Jidu Automobile's request for participation. However, Jidu Motors later responded that the absence from the Shanghai auto show was made according to the marketing rhythm of its own products and was not rejected by the organizers because of its lack of qualifications.
As Jidu Automobile itself does not have the qualification to build cars, it is impossible to directly entrust Geely to produce them. In short, Jidu Automobile cannot be built on its own market. As a brand-new brand under Geely, Jiyue Automobile can naturally use Geely's qualifications to build cars, which may be the reason for the sudden change in the cooperative relationship between Geely and Baidu. Geely Automobile will be the producer of the "Jiyue" brand, while Jidu will become a "supplier". According to the plan, Geely Group will be responsible for the production and manufacture of Ji Yue Automobile products, and Baidu Group will provide services for Ji Yue in terms of AI technology capabilities such as smart cockpit, intelligent driving and Wen Xin Yi Yan.
It should be noted that with the reform of the automobile industry, car manufacturers are facing "speed of life and death". At present, the automobile industry is experiencing accelerated reshuffle, and as the industry enters a watershed, undelivered car companies such as Xiaomi Automobile have also become the focus of the industry's attention. After all, in the fierce "knockout", we all know that if the car companies do not come up with products, elimination is only a matter of time. As for the first model of Jiyue 01 after the launch, the future performance, we still need to wait for more time to verify.
