Among them, X02 and S01 are positioned as medium and large six-seat SUVs, priced at 349,800 and 299,800 respectively, which are benchmarked against Mercedes-Benz GLE and Tesla Model X; while S02 is positioned as a medium-sized five-seater SUV, priced at 249,800 yuan.

The annual sales surpassed Weilai ES6, Weimar EX5, BYD Tang DM, etc., becoming the No. 1 sales in the domestic new energy SUV market.
