[YesAuto Smart Car Association Evaluation] As early as 2018, BAIC announced that it would stop selling its own fuel vehicles in 2025. Following this, BAIC Group and Magna established a joint venture company and launched BAIC New Energy-Jihu (ARCFOX) brand, Polar Fox is the hope of BAIC, and it can even be said to be the “last fight.” In the evaluation dimension of the Smart Car Federation, let's take a look at the highlights and shortcomings of Polar Fox Alpha T's performance.
Relatively speaking, Polar Fox Alpha T is conscientious in the configuration of the Internet of Vehicles. Of course, this is a standard operation among new car forces and even many traditional car companies that have transformed, and it is not worthy of additional praise.
The homepage uses a relatively traditional large icon layout. Except for a few functions such as navigation, which can be directly operated on the homepage, most functions need to be clicked to enter the secondary page of the application to operate.
The most basic ability of voice control lies in the correct recognition of commands. Polar Fox Alpha T performs well in this aspect. When the 1/3 window is opened and the window is closed at 60km/h, the network commands and local commands are respectively issued. After testing, the ratio of successful identification exceeded 90%.
In addition, it supports some functions such as map navigation, entertainment and other functions without wake-up words, such as zoom in/out the map, next song, pause playback, etc., do not need to say wake-up words or get started, just say wake-up words directly That's it.
Function realization module, we need to test the most frequently used functions, including map navigation, audio entertainment, communication, parking image, car control, mapping, remote control, etc., to determine whether they can reach the level of usability, ease of use or ease of use .
Our common traffic information, route preference settings, circumvention of traffic restrictions and other functions are also available on the Polar Fox Alpha T car machine, which is more than enough to replace mobile phone navigation.
In the service ecological link, we will focus on the O2O functions related to pancar life. In addition to the “necessary functions” in the itinerary, these “extra functions” may bring some convenience to the daily life of the car owner.
There are still a very small number of applications available for download in the application store, and the number is not much at present. Looking forward to the follow-up Jihu can continue to enrich and improve the content of the application store and introduce new features.
In the communication favorability link, we will summarize the intelligent performance of the vehicle during the test. The most basic “wisdom” is to understand people's instructions as much as possible. Even if they don't understand, they can be resolved in a relaxed way. Of course, more advanced requirements. We hope that one day the communication between people and cars can reach the level of “human-like interaction”.
Extreme Fox Alpha T voice control has a good ability to recognize natural semantics, and there will be no too strong discomfort in daily use. Correspondingly, the recognition rate of gesture control is poor. As a supplementary interaction method for voice control, passengers can really use it. If you do, you may become angry.

In general, we can see that in the car cockpit, Polar Fox has worked hard. Whether it is the application of the 20.3-inch central control screen, the function allocation of several screens, we have seen some thoughts, and the hardware configuration is sufficient. high. Of course, problems also exist. For example, the UI design style lacks features, the gesture control is not easy to use, and the app store content is limited. These are the areas that Jihu can improve through OTA in the future. I also hope that Jihu has the ability and mind to continuously improve itself. The product.
