Radar Auto RD6 is now officially on market. A total of 4 models of new car were released, priced between 178,800 and 268,800 yuan. The Radar RD6 is built using M.A.P.'s brand new proprietary electrical platform. In addition to impressive technical strength, design and production also reflect the desire for fun and versatility. The new vehicle will meet new consumer needs, such as today's popular campsites and kiosks, and create a new energy pickup model that combines practicality and pleasure.
Appearance: focus on fashion and technology
In contrast to endurance of conventional pickups, Rado RD6 has more emphasis on fashion and sophistication in appearance, it doesn't have tool car trappings of conventional pickups at all, but more like an urban SUV model with a payload capacity. . The front end adopts popular borderless concept. The diamond-cut effect closed center grille provides a good visual effect, outer end seamlessly connects with headlights, and trim connects with car's LED daytime running gear. to enhance technological sense of front side.
The bumper design is pretty tight too, with huge air intakes on both sides separated by chrome trim in middle, and paired with a trapezoidal air intake grille creates a layered mecha style.
Purely electric architecture allows RD6 to shed proportions of conventional pickups and have more slender body proportions. The front end is lower than conventional pickups, monotonous. The tail section is longer than conventional pickups, and it also has a pleat design to increase side variety. With a matte black floor, hard core elements that pickups should have are not missing.
The design of tail section also breaks recognition inherent in pickup models. The use of thru taillights gives more room for relatively fixed tail section of pickups. The X-shaped light strips on both sides are very recognizable, while penetrating light strip also highlights refinement of rear.
In terms of dimensions, length, width and height of RD6 radar is 5260mm X 1900mm X 1830mm, and wheelbase is 3120mm, which can be considered standard data for a medium-sized pickup truck. The RD6 radar currently only has one cargo bay length to choose from. The cargo compartment length, width and height are 1525*1450*540mm, and theoretical cargo space is 1200L. The top half of cover can be optional.
Interior design: get rid of sophisticated impression of a pickup truck
Playful style is also reflected in interior design of Radar RD6. First, center console has a fairly regular layout, "X" design element. The RD6 is also equipped with a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster and same size central control screen. The floating central control screen provides a clear look and feel. It is also Galaxy OS system that everyone is familiar with. this system has also been tested on related products, and performance and stability are quite good.
In terms of configuration and materials, it is also relatively generous. The whole car has a wide area of leather cover, which can provide a soft and comfortable touch where it is touched daily. The configuration is also relatively rich. In addition to usual comfort configuration, it also provides a 9-inch HUD head-up display and a 51-inch panoramic sunroof with no obvious configuration flaws.
Like a pickup model, back row of RD6 looks more like a passenger car. The shape of seats is wide and thick, which is completely different from “bench” of back row of pickups in past, and riding comfort is guaranteed to a certain extent. It is worth noting that rear seats have a folding mechanism that can provide a certain amount of extra storage space when no one is sitting, and practicality has been greatly improved.
Performance: Outstanding NVH performance, excellent external discharge capability
The RD6 radar is based on original pure electric M.A.P platform with a maximum output of 200kW, an official maximum range of 632km and a 6.9s 6.9s 0-100km time. Chassis-wise, Rado RD6 uses four-wheel independent suspension, theoretically providing better comfort than most pickup trucks of same price. In addition, 6.1m turning radius also greatly enhances vehicle's maneuverability and provides a quieter operation in urban areas and some narrow areas in wilderness. At same time, rigid body also further enhances safety and NVH performance. The body's torsional rigidity exceeds 30,300 Nm/degree, and it provides greater confidence in bumpy road conditions and intense control.
Radar RD6 also provides a unique external discharge function, supports up to 6kW external discharge, and has three different modes of static discharge, on-the-go discharge and locked-car discharge to meet needs of different usage scenarios. The RD6 is also equipped with various types of plugs, which can provide power for various electrical appliances. The benefits for outdoor activities are obvious. The RD6 can provide power for coffee makers, ovens, refrigerators and other household appliances. more enjoyable. It can also charge other electronic entertainment devices and even play off-road electric motorcycle.
Radar RD6, a new model of pickup with energy, is unlikely to find analogues in China. It focuses on outdoor activities and gaming attributes, which makes it uniquely positioned in market. The price after official launch also shows a certain degree of sincerity. The price of entry-level version under 18 is not unattractive for a purely electric pickup truck, especially since RD6 has excellent mileage performance, which allows it to be better equipped for long-distance driving tasks. On other hand, RD6 has a relatively clear positioning for itself. As mentioned at beginning, enjoyment is its main element of pursuit. Compared with fuel tankers, RD6 has lower daily commuting costs, and its superior external reset capability also ensures more possibilities. , especially current hot camping and kiosk culture, has toughened needs of some core pickup truck consumers to a certain extent, and has accordingly lessened their concerns about owning a pickup truck model. As a pioneer model of same level, with dual advantages of new energy and pickups, RD6 has a broader perspective, and as far as performance is concerned, it will only be revealed after a test drive in future.
