At €38,350 : AVATR 11 Unveils Mind-Blowing HarmonyOS Cockpit and Huawei Tech!

AVATR 11 Equipped with Huawei’s HarmonyOS Cockpit Now Available for Shipment

In a field where extravagant car launches often boast of “cutting-edge” technology that turns out to be standard from years past, the recent unveiling of AVATR has genuinely seized our attention for the right reasons. The AVATR 11 has taken a significant leap by seamlessly incorporating Huawei’s novel ADS 2.0 smart driving system and the latest HarmonyOS 4 cockpit. And no, the term “cockpit” isn’t just a grandiose substitute for the dashboard; it embodies a truly modern experience characteristic of 2023.

The long-anticipated AVATR 11, empowered by Huawei ADS 2.0, has now entered the market, offering four distinctive models – two featuring a single electric motor and two boasting all-wheel drive configurations. Buyers are also presented with a choice between two battery options. The pricing starts at RMB 300,000 (€38,350) for the base model and ascends to an appealing RMB 390,000 (€49,900) for the top-tier AWD variant equipped with the largest battery.


With its General Obstacle Detection (GOD) network, the AVATR 11 boasts unparalleled recognition capabilities. Its prowess extends beyond merely identifying typical obstacles; it can even discern unconventional scenarios, like a fallen tree obstructing the road or an oddly tilted vehicle (for those curious, no details are provided).

For those who harbor reservations about excessive reliance on technology (thanks to the influence of Black Mirror), find solace in this: During daylight testing, the AVATR 11 stood out as the sole model capable of detecting obstacles such as cones and enigmatic “cartons water horses” – a term as perplexing to us as it is to you.


But let’s pivot our attention to the driving experience. According to Huawei, the average distance a human assumes manual control has expanded from 100 km to an impressive 200 km. For those not steeped in automotive jargon, this translates to being able to enjoy your mocha latte and a podcast for an extended 200 km before needing to intervene. That’s more than sufficient for inter-city commutes. And for those who dread toll stations, there’s a silver lining: AVATR pioneers a high-speed NCA function, ensuring a smoother and more intelligent drive.

Now, let’s delve into the HarmonyOS cockpit. The AVATR 11 doesn’t merely intend for driving; it aims for engagement. Picture the most user-friendly smartphone you’ve ever owned – now envision that level of experience in your car. The HarmonyOS infotainment system introduces a “scenario world,” a concept that sounds futuristic but is entirely attainable. Whether you’re in the mood for a quick karaoke session (yes, while parked) or you desire to take a break and catch a movie, this vehicle offers a mode tailored to your preferences.

Concerned about parting ways with your cherished tech devices? Rest assured. The car seamlessly syncs with your mobile device, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity. It can even transform into a “vehicle computer” display if you so choose. It’s reminiscent of Knight Rider, minus the theatric voiceover.


Beyond the technological marvels, the AVATR 11 HarmonyOS edition showcases Huawei’s DriveONE high-voltage electric drive system. In simpler terms, the single motor version delivers a respectable 230 kW output with a peak torque of 370 Nm, accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in a mere 6.6 seconds. For power enthusiasts, the dual-motor version amplifies the excitement to 425 kW and 650 Nm, catapulting the sprint time to an astonishing 3.9 seconds (with the smaller, lighter battery pack). Both versions offer battery size options, with the largest unit, as per the always-optimistic CLTC standards, promising up to 730 km of driving enjoyment – if only reality aligned with such optimism.

While AVATR’s latest offering doesn’t revolutionize the wheel (pun intended), it undeniably illustrates the potential when intelligence converges with the automotive domain. This stylish SUV bears all the hallmarks of a potential frontrunner – power, range, and arguably, the highest degree of intelligence. However, as always, in the realm of electric vehicles, these factors alone aren’t sufficient. Regrettably, its current market presence is limited to China; otherwise, it could emerge as a formidable competitor against nearly every premium electric SUV available.
