HAVAL F5 is tailored to young people pursuing personality, fashion and true-self. HAVAL F7 is tailored to fashionable tech orientated "geeks" pursuing fashion, technology, style and life sentiment.
Intelligent Connected - HAVAL F-range Defining New Intelligent Connected Lifestyle
For HAVAL, vehicles in the future will no longer exist as individuals but integrate into the Internet ecosystem to play more roles and fulfill intelligent functions and more "active" services. HAVAL intelligent connected vehicles have three major functions, i.e., promoting new dimensional perception, "made with wisdom" experiences and change in human to vehicle relations. Brand new dimensional perception refers to the brand new travel service system by integrating modules such as entertainment, travel, vehicle use and after-sales to form a perceptual ecosystem for the HAVAL F-range. Brand new "made with wisdom" experience refers to the manufacture of vehicles with full dimensional AI, changing the driving experience and making vehicles more intelligent by placing the intelligent voice system at the core. Change in human to vehicle relations refers to making the HAVAL F-range exclusively customized for users by learning mobile data and vehicle data in relation to and through super apps.
