[YesAuto concept car real shot] The development of human science and technology is always accompanied by the destruction of the environment. The starry sky that was common in childhood has almost disappeared in Beijing a few years ago. Fortunately, in recent years, the country has vigorously rectified pollution and advocated environmental protection, and the blue sky has once again appeared over the North China Plain. As a sub-brand of environmental pioneer Volvo, Polestar also has an almost paranoid pursuit of eliminating pollution and sustainable development. This can be seen from the concept car Polestar Precept, which debuted at the Beijing Auto Show for the first time.
I believe that a professional English vocabulary that friends who love cars has mastered very early is “Concept”, and we usually translate it as a concept car. And this concept car of Polestar is not called Polestar Concept, but called Polestar Precept. There are some careful thoughts in it.
Because the original word præcipere can be translated as Teach in the Latin dictionary. Therefore, compared to Concept, which is more inclined to the distant future, Precept seems to be suggesting a closer future, which means that all subsequent Polestar models will be guided by Precept and taught by precepts and deeds.
Polestar 1 and Polestar 2 follow Volvo's design style as much as possible, which is not a bad thing for a newly independent brand. The Polestar Precept was released at this point in the third year after the brand was established. From the time point of view, it can also be inferred that it is the concept car that carries the soul of Polestar.
The hardest thing to do in the field of design is not to create a completely new thing, nor to copy an old thing. It is to refine the essence on the original basis while integrating some brand-new concepts. How to balance the mystery and mystery of “it doesn't look like it at first glance, but it seems a bit after a closer look” is an important indicator of whether a family design or a design with a certain inheritance is good or not.
When electric cars first appeared, everyone thought that “no air intake grille” was a very cool design, and at the same time it satisfies the functionality well-reducing wind resistance. However, many years have passed, and all cars now have no grille, which makes people feel that there is something missing in the front.
This position that originally belonged to the air intake grille is now replaced by a smart panel. The left and right sides of the show car are equipped with two long-distance millimeter wave radars, and the middle is a high-definition camera. If there are other needs in the future It can also be customized or upgraded.
As a concept car, this design doesn't matter, but if this design is continued on a mass-produced car, maintenance can also be carried out from the bottom of the car after lifting, but is it inconvenient to add glass water?
After talking about the chin, let's look at the top of the head. Nowadays, most car models like to put sensors related to autonomous driving in the cockpit. On the one hand, it can save the trouble of designing the sensor for waterproof and dustproof, on the other hand, it can also make the exterior of the vehicle look smoother and softer.
The most eye-catching feature on the side of the body is the double door design. This has the advantage that the side of the vehicle looks very clean, and the position of the door that is easy to appear messy is also neat because of the two hidden door handles put together.
Some decorative designs at the rear of the rear window are also customary in the automotive industry today. The designers of Polestar Precept designed a short strip of light on the extension of the window line.
I think the rear of the car is the best part of the Polestar Precept. The penetrating taillights do not simply follow the trend, but are integrated with the outline lights on both sides.
Unlike the cold-looking exterior, you will be surprised by this very eye-catching interior material when you walk into the Polestar Precept.
In fact, in terms of traditional automotive interior materials, many leftovers are wasted during the cutting process. The biggest feature of the 3D flying thread seamless weaving technology is that it has a very high degree of freedom in processing, and at the same time, there will be no seams due to modeling. Not only has the visual characteristics of a seamless one, but also there is almost no problem of waste of leftovers.
In terms of interior design, Polestar Precept continues part of Volvo's concept-such as the huge vertical screen in the middle. In other respects, it is extremely demanding and deliberately reducing the number of screens in the car.
Due to process and cost constraints on mass-produced models, many bells and whistles are difficult to achieve. Often car companies will throw these cool things into the concept car. After all, this thing does not require mass production and there are not so many restrictions.
But will it be inconvenient if there is a strong interaction requirement? Don't worry, in addition to the buttons, Polestar actually hopes that users use voice interaction to communicate with the vehicle. Therefore, they specially designed a set of “non-predetermined voice interaction system” for Polestar Precept, which can recognize different accents and languages, and it will not only have a set of very simple precepts like your “Little Ai” at home. Set a reply.
In fact, in addition to the above-mentioned content, the concept car is also equipped with functions such as high-level automatic driving. But we might as well focus on the design and materials, which are easier to land in mass production. After all, the Polestar Precept is still a concept car. Even if these gimmicks are not fulfilled in mass production, we can't do anything about it. What's more, what this car wants to express is not the highly automated and cool technology configuration, but the environmental protection concept and the emotional expression of simplified complexity.
