Envisioninggood life with ' smart mobility'

SAIC Motor established a corporate pavilion at the Expo 2010 Shanghai China, where it illustrated a "Drive to 2030" life journey, a future with zero emissions, zero traffic accidents and congestion, and zero reliance on petroleum, effectively envisioning the beautiful aspiration of "simple travels, intimate hearts." In the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai, SAIC Motor will be showcasing its "Kun" concept vehicle jointly created by SAIC's forward-thinking design teams of its design center in Shanghai and London. Inspired by the legend of the "Kun" in Zhuangzi's "A Happy Excursion" and the idea of "China and the world, oceans and mountains in the same vein," the "Kun" concept vehicle envisages a smart nanosystem incorporating various state-of-the-art technologies such as photosynthetic energy, zero-gravity seats, interactive holographic-display system and self-driving technology. It showcases a wonderful, futuristic vision of smart mobility that is free of space restrictions and enabled by bio-inspired technologies that allow three-way interactions between the driver, vehicle, and environment. It aims to bring a unique experience of a "bird's eye view of technology, the future and China" to visitors of the Expo 2021 Dubai from all over the world.
