Since the launch of the iCAR 03 model, a total of 5487 units have been sold, showing initial market acceptance. On this basis, iCAR 03 has completed its first OTA (Over-The-Air) upgrade, equipping it with an L2++ level pure visual high-level intelligent driving assistance system, further enhancing urban memory driving functions and intelligent parking functions to adapt to increasingly complex driving environments.

The newly launched iCAR 03T model is designed based on user feedback and market trends.
