Is the BYD YangWang U9 blessed with black technology an excellent super sports car?

When many people evaluate super sports cars, they attach great importance to its power and control. Just two days ago, the YangWang U9, which is positioned as a super sports car, was finally launched. With a maximum power of 960kW and an acceleration of 0 to 0-60 seconds in 2.36 seconds, it directly exploded the power. .

BYD YangWang U9

The power is up to standard, but what about the control? At the press conference, YangWang U9 also announced a set of lap times from the previous race, 2 minutes, 17 seconds and 65 seconds. However, it was this lap time that made many fans who were looking forward to U9 unable to sit still.

In the same race lap time, the Ferrari 488 Pista can do 2 minutes and 07 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R can do 2 minutes and 10 seconds, and the Porsche 911 Turbo S can do 2 minutes and 11 seconds.

In terms of power performance, the book parameters of these high-performance oil vehicles are only about half of the YangWang U9, but in terms of track lap speed that reflects the handling performance, all of them seem to be better than the U9. What exactly is going on?

Although for a super sports car, the lap speed of YangWang U9 is not bad, but compared with its ridiculously strong power parameters, the gap left to everyone is still too obvious.

So much so that in many video comments about YangWangU9, there is no shortage of doubts and denials about YangWangU9. Some people even concluded that YangWangU9 cannot reach the level of super sports car.

Why does the powerful YangWangU9 lose to the less powerful high-performance oil car in terms of track lap time? Is the YangWang U9 an excellent supercar?

01 Why does YangWangU9 have average lap times?

First, let’s get straight to the point and talk about why YangWangU9’s lap speed is average. My personal guess is that there are roughly two possibilities.

1. The power of a single motor may not be enough

The first is that the power of a single motor may not be high enough. The reason why we say this is because in a curve, due to the wheel speed difference between the inner and outer wheels, the outer wheel will bear the main power output.

Racing cars crossing corners

Although the comprehensive maximum power of YangWang U9 is close to 1000kW, this is the cumulative maximum power of four motors. The maximum power of a single motor is only 240kW.

In addition, the motor of a tram cannot actually output maximum power continuously for a long time like a gasoline vehicle, because heat dissipation is not allowed, and most of the time it actually outputs a lower rated power.

Audi RS 7 Sportback

In other words, although the power of a petrol vehicle is lower, it can achieve doubling of torque and free transmission between axles and wheels through structures such as gearboxes, differential locks, and drive shafts.

Although the YangWang U9 has stronger power parameters, it can only rely on a motor that independently drives the outer wheels and a fixed-gear reducer to drive in corners. Especially when the vehicle is too heavy, the cornering speed will be affected.

2. Torque control may not be perfect

During the frequent switching between straight lines and curves on the track, YangWang U9 needs to frequently adjust the real-time torque of the four wheels in order to maintain tire grip while outputting maximum power and improving track lap speed.

BYD YangWang U9

But it is not easy to do this, just like a skilled waiter in a restaurant, who can order and pass dishes to multiple customers, accurately remember the temporary needs of each customer, and control Good mood and always service with a smile. This is a great test of the experience accumulated by car companies in the development of high-performance vehicles.

02 Is the YangWang U9 an excellent supercar?

If we follow the stereotype of power and control, then the YangWang U9 is indeed not good enough. Its interpretation of the role of a supercar mostly stays at the power level, but is not hard-core enough at the control level.

1.Excellence is reflected in the technical level

However, this alone cannot deny YangWang U9, because its interpretation of super sports cars is mainly reflected in the technical level, and these technologies are not only hard-core, but also represent the development direction of future super sports cars.

YiSiFang

For example, YiSiFang’s four-wheel independent electric drive layout not only allows the YangWang U9’s power parameters to skyrocket, but also breaks through the shortcomings of traditional super sports cars that are subject to mechanical structures and gains the ability to achieve precise torque vector control.

For example, YunNian-X, the essence of this active suspension technology is to actively control the body posture to keep the tires close to the ground to maintain maximum grip, thereby improving handling performance.

YunNian-X

However, the most core capability is that YangWang has the ability to develop and produce any of the above technologies by itself, which is something that most super sports car brands do not have.

2. There is indeed a lack of experience

Of course, the shortcomings of YangWang U9 do exist objectively. The regret on the track lap time shows that BYD has not fully utilized its advantages at the hardware level.

This mainly involves the research and development experience of high-performance cars, such as torque vectoring. Old European and American car companies like Porsche, although not as intelligent as YangWang, have rich experience in the driving characteristics and dynamic performance of high-performance cars. The accumulation of experience can guide them on how to make a high-performance car.

racing

Not only did independent brands start late and have little accumulation, but the special domestic consumer demands and competitive pressure also forced car companies to focus entirely on grocery shopping carts instead of high-performance cars that pursue speed and passion.

3. Power and handling are not everything about supercars

But having said that, although super sports cars often have super power and control, they are not all super sports cars; as cutting-edge products in the automobile industry, super sports cars serve more as business cards for car companies and car owners.

Take the Lexus LFA, for example. This supercar itself does not pursue ultimate performance. Its purpose of existence is more to reflect Lexus’ pursuit of exquisite craftsmanship and elegant lifestyle.

Lexus LFA

Lexus has poured a lot of F1 racing technology and experience into the LFA. Not only does the whole car have no common parts, but it also uses a lot of expensive carbon fiber and titanium materials. In addition, the unique engine air intake cavity designed by Yamaha makes it even more unique. An unforgettable and unique sound came, which has also become the classic image of LFA.

Therefore, even if the performance of LFA is not top-notch, Clarkson, who is as demanding as “Jay Sledgehammer”, is full of praise for LFA, “I have driven countless super sports cars, and this one is not the fastest, but this one is the best.” of”.

Ferrari

Take Ferrari for example. Although Ferrari has performed very well in the fields of power and control in the past 10 years, Ferrari still prohibits anyone from testing and disclosing lap times. Perhaps in their view, being obsessed with lap times will lose the original intention of driving.

Back to YangWang U9, its value lies in its high performance, vertical integration of a large number of self-developed technologies, embodying YangWang’s technology-driven brand character, and thereby attracting car owners who pursue hard-core technology.

BYD YangWang U9

So it seems that, as a supercar, the YangWang U9 itself is still considered excellent, but its pursuit of technical attributes has formed a certain deviation from the public’s stereotyped perception of supercars.

YangWang U9 technical details announced: comprehensive innovation in performance, security and experience

Recently, YangWang Automobile announced that its million-level pure electric performance supercar YangWang U9 will be officially launched on February 25. At the same time, more technical details will also be announced in the near future. YangWang U9 relies on the two core technologies of YiSiFang and YunNian-X, combined with the industry’s top-level lightweight super body, excellent aerodynamic design, leading intelligent driving assistance system in the supercar industry, and unprecedented new ways of human-vehicle interaction, etc. Empowering YangWang U9 to have an elevated space that can be played on the street, competed in, and played. YangWang U9 will use the ultimate technology to innovate vehicle performance, safety and experience in all aspects, create an unprecedented million-level pure electric performance supercar, and bring users a new understanding and experience of supercars.

01 YiSiFang: powerful power and precise control

YiSiFang, with four-motor independent drive as its core, empowers YangWang U9’s four-motor peak power up to 960kW, peak torque 1680N·m, and peak speed 21,000rpm. The maximum horsepower of the vehicle exceeds 1,300Ps, the power performance is powerful, and the acceleration from zero to 0-100 seconds reaches 2 seconds, achieving a driving experience like flying close to the ground.

Track challenges require powerful and precise performance control. YiSiFang can independently allocate the optimal torque to each wheel, and can complete the wheel end adjustment at the moment of cornering, maximizing the use of ground adhesion and increasing the extreme cornering speed on the track. In the actual test on the track, the maximum instantaneous lateral acceleration of YangWang U9 reached 1.7g.

YangWang U9 adopts the world’s original YiSiFang U-shaped motor design, which is more compact in size and has a lower center of gravity. The recognition accuracy and response speed are much higher than traditional supercars, and the vehicle control is more sensitive. With the world’s original dual-motor and dual-electronic control deeply integrated design, it is more suitable for sports car aerodynamics and lightweight design needs. The size is more compact and the center of gravity is lower, which establishes YangWang U9’s extremely impactful diving attitude and low-lying appearance. , and more suitable for extreme driving on the track.

The YangWang U9 motor uses ultra-thin low-iron loss silicon steel sheets and high-temperature-resistant permanent magnets to improve motor efficiency, reduce heat loss, and improve the motor’s temperature resistance. To ensure the safety and performance requirements of the electric drive system, YangWang U9 has optimized the motor’s magnetic circuit and selected permanent magnets with higher temperature resistance and stronger resistance to demagnetization. The permanent magnets can withstand high temperatures of up to 200°C. In terms of electronic control, YangWang U9 uses a more efficient silicon carbide electronic control, with a maximum transmission efficiency of 99.8%.

Supercars require efficient thermal management systems to keep their motors at optimal operating temperatures. YangWang U9 pioneered the design of three thermal management systems of large, medium and small cycles to ensure cooling performance requirements in different scenarios. The dual motors on the front and rear axles are equipped with dual electronic oil pumps. Each oil pump independently controls the oil cooling of one motor, achieving intelligent control of the cooling oil volume of each motor. At the same time, it ensures cooling performance requirements in different scenarios. The vehicle’s 12 aerodynamic kits and “space-time tunnel” air duct layout cleverly balance downforce and wind resistance while comprehensively improving heat dissipation performance.

02 YunNian-X: Ultimate comfort and ultimate control coexist

Supercars are the perfect interpretation of speed. In the extreme competition of speed, the endless pursuit and breakthrough of performance have resulted in the million-level pure electric performance supercar YangWang U9. And racing on the track is not the only imagination for YangWang U9. YangWang U9 brings a new definition of pure electric supercar with the unprecedented YunNian-X.

The YunNian-X intelligent fully active body control system is based on the integrated control of horizontal, vertical and vertical directions. It can realize horizontal sharp bends without drifting and roll “disappear”; longitudinally without raising the head when starting, without nodding when braking; and without feeling vertical bumps, such as Walking on flat ground, it meets the posture stability in the three directions of horizontal, vertical and vertical directions, taking into account the ultimate comfort and ultimate control.

YunNian-X is equipped with highly integrated motors, electronic controls, and main power sources, and the four suspension control motors are decoupled from each other. Through YunNian Sensing’s multiple sets of sensing hardware, YunNian’s intelligent computing center outputs the best control strategy. The high-voltage suspension motor outputs instant high active force to the shock absorber, quickly and actively adjusts the damping and stroke, and the output control force counteracts road bumps. Thus achieving an unprecedented anti-gravity and anti-centrifugal force experience. It can achieve the ultimate comfortable experience when dealing with braking, starting pitch, turning roll, and road impact.

The YangWang U9 has a maximum adjustment stroke of 75mm, can quickly lift by 50mm, and has an average single-axis lifting speed of up to 375mm/s. It can also ensure four-wheel grip and improve control when passing bumpy roads such as road shoulders at high speeds. By automatically adjusting the support of the left and right suspensions, the inner suspension is appropriately stretched to ensure the grip of the inner wheels, and the rigidity of the outer suspension is increased to reduce body roll, making the vehicle more controllable in high-speed corners, thereby increasing the cornering speed. . Straight-line acceleration or braking can systematically improve the anti-pitch ability, and the ejection starts without raising the head.

Thanks to the 800V high-voltage platform and highly integrated main power source, the YunNian-X system has a maximum power of 36kW, an industry-leading adjustment speed, super large main power, a peak single-axis lifting rate of up to 500mm/s, and an instantaneous output of more than 1 ton. The lift enables pure electric performance supercars to jump upward, giving the development of China’s chassis technology a new lease of life. During rapid acceleration, deceleration, cornering, and bumpy road shoulders on the track, it can increase the grip and achieve the ultimate control experience.

03 A new experience of supercar driving in the era of electrification

BYD YangWang U10 preview image exposed! Appearance comparable to “land aircraft carrier”

The birth of BYD’s “YangWang” series can be said to mark a step closer for our domestic cars in the luxury field. Moreover, the two cars currently on sale have become benchmarks in the ranks, and its first supercar will be officially announced this month, and the entire product line will become richer. Recently, the preview image of BYD’s first MPV in the YangWang series has been exposed. The new car may be officially named “YangWang U10”. If all goes well, the new car is expected to officially meet with everyone next year.

The group of pictures is the rendering of the “YangWang U10” that has just been exposed. Since the official has not given much information at present, it is only for your reference. The specific information shall prevail. The group picture shows three versions. The entire structure is almost the same, but the differences are still very obvious. Taking the picture above as an example, compared to the other two versions, the body shape is more traditional, the front face is more complex, and the headlights use a single-layer LED light source! The ladder-shaped center grid is composed of dot matrix LED light sources, and the LOGO with oracle elements on the top is more artistic. Below the main light source is the so-called driving light, and it forms an angle of 90 degrees with the front surround. In this way, the entire three-dimensional effect is easily displayed, and the LED light strip extending above the front surround also shows a sense of fashion. side.

Compared with the first car, the second car has become more conceptual. In fact, this design is more in line with the development of future cars. The entire car is made of one piece, which is more like a masterpiece of a 3D printer. Even the door handles on both sides have been replaced with hidden designs! The front position of the car is also quite simple, with a larger grille that almost extends to the front apron. The front enclosure is also simpler, and it is the only place among the three cars that adopts an independent design.

The third car can be said to be a fusion of the above two versions. It can be clearly seen that the new car door handle adopts a semi-hidden design. And throughout the side profile, this car draws on elements from American cars, especially the design of the rear, which is similar to Ford’s Explorer. The front face is more impactful, using a single-layer LED light source that is almost parallel to the entire front of the car. The center grille has been replaced with a square design, and the interior is composed of waterfall-style decorative strips. In addition, the new car’s LOGO also uses a dotted The bright way improves the recognition of the entire car. In addition, the front enclosure also adopts an integrated design, but the sharpness of the front side remains unchanged.

In fact, no matter which version, the “Big Mac” has a solid figure, so it is not an exaggeration for the media to call it a “land aircraft carrier”. Information about the interior and power has yet to be officially announced. So the question is, what do you expect from such a car?

YangWangU9丨Externally practice muscles, bones and skin, internally practice one breath

Unprecedented products will surely bring disruptive user experience. YangWangU9 has successfully broken through with its highly recognizable and impactful appearance. At the same time, we should not forget the cultivation and breakthrough of inner skills. Aerodynamic design is a comprehensive test of wind resistance, downforce and thermal management. It never gives up or makes concessions, but seeks the optimal solution of the three. With its sophisticated design, YangWang U9 not only perfectly balances wind resistance and downforce, but also demonstrates excellent thermal management capabilities, leading supercars to officially enter the pure electric era.

Part 1: Travel Aesthetics, High-profile Interpretation

Pure energy art is the design concept of the YangWang brand, and we have fully demonstrated it on YangWangU9.
The smooth line design of the entire vehicle, combined with a space shuttle-style body layout, takes into account the aesthetic design of a pioneering supercar while ensuring that the airflow is close to the vehicle body and passes smoothly. Perfectly balancing form and performance, showing unparalleled speed and tension.

The highly recognizable front face shape and unique air duct design outline the muscular lines of YangWang U9, embodying the ultimate performance aesthetics of a super sports car and attracting attention even from a hundred meters away.

Part 2: Calm and relaxed, moving ahead all the way

The carefully designed air duct layout allows us to control the air more scientifically, making the flowing air more obedient at high speeds and making driving more comfortable and comfortable.

The large air intake grille at the front captures a large amount of air for use by the thermal management system. The cooling module is arranged in a backward tilt, and the effective heat exchange area is increased by 25% to achieve effective heat dissipation and cooling. Stable and continuous power output, no fear of racing on the track.

The triangular window air inlets on the side of the car body absorb a large amount of air when driving and guide it to the rear cooling module, which is paired with an internal cooling fan to effectively enhance the airflow cooling effect. At the same time, the air is discharged from the lower part of the rear bumper, impacting the vortex at the rear of the car and reducing the drag force of the airflow. During high-intensity driving on the track, it ensures that the supercar can unleash its best performance.

The swing arm air ducts on the inside of the front and rear wheels guide the air flow direction, increase the air flow directed to the brake disc, quickly physically cool down the brakes, and still control sudden acceleration and deceleration.

The air duct behind the door combs the airflow outside the rear wheel to form a low-pressure area outside the wheel, sucking out the heat inside the wheel. The brake disc cooling air volume is increased by 3 times, which greatly reduces the temperature inside the wheel and improves the performance limit.

Part 3: Corners, Overtaking

The clever balance of strong downforce and low wind resistance brings stability and driving pleasure beyond traditional supercars.

The ring-shaped wind block design separates the frontal airflow and bypasses the wheels, effectively reducing wind resistance. At the same time, the air is guided to form a low-pressure zone inside, providing downforce for the front axle, adding more confidence when riding on the track.

The 4-speed adjustable electric rear wing, combined with an active diffuser, can provide up to 200kg of downforce. By adjusting the angle of the active rear wing and the opening and closing of the active diffuser, it can switch between the best downforce and the lowest wind resistance in a timely manner, and can retract and expand freely to meet the needs of different driving conditions.

A large carbon fiber swan-neck rear wing can be optionally matched to accurately match the airflow direction on the roof to improve aerodynamic efficiency and can provide up to 280kg of downforce. It can effectively improve the stability of the vehicle under extreme speed conditions, making cornering more stable and exiting corners faster.

YangWangU9丨Create the most powerful supercar in the pure electric era

YangWang U9 opens the era of pure electric super sports cars.
Supercars are the perfect interpretation of speed. In the extreme competition of speed, the endless pursuit and breakthrough of performance have created the most powerful supercar in the pure electric era.

 

01    YiSiFang Empowerment: Beyond the Power Performance of V12 Engines

1. The peak power of four motors is as high as: 960kW
2. The maximum horsepower of the vehicle exceeds 1300PS

02    Achieving a driving experience like flying close to the ground

The world’s original dual-motor and dual-electronic control deeply integrated design adapts to sports car aerodynamics and lightweight design. The size is more compact and the center of gravity is lower. It establishes the super sports car’s extremely impactful dive posture and low-lying shape, which is more suitable for the track. Extreme driving.

03    When driving on the track, control accurately and still maintain the ideal state in corners.

When challenging on the track, powerful and precise performance control is required. YiSiFang distributes optimal torque to each wheel independently. At the moment of cornering, maximize the use of ground adhesion to increase the extreme cornering speed on the track. In the actual test on the track, the instantaneous maximum lateral acceleration of YangWangU9 reached 1.7g.

04     Efficient Thermal Management System

1. Silicon carbide electronic control, the highest transmission efficiency reaches 99.8%. Using a more efficient silicon carbide electronic control, the motor uses ultra-thin low-iron loss silicon steel sheets and high-temperature-resistant permanent magnets to improve motor efficiency, reduce heat loss, and improve the motor’s temperature resistance.
2. Dual electronic oil pumps provide more accurate temperature control. Each oil pump independently controls the oil cooling of a motor, achieving intelligent control of the cooling oil volume of each motor.
3. Innovative design of three sets of thermal management systems for large, medium and small cycles to ensure cooling performance requirements in different scenarios.
4. Optimize the motor’s magnetic circuit and select permanent magnets with higher temperature resistance and stronger demagnetization resistance, which can withstand temperatures up to 200°C to ensure the safety and performance of the electric drive system.
5. 12 sets of aerodynamic kits to comprehensively improve heat dissipation performance. 12 sets of aerodynamic kits and “space-time tunnel” air duct layout help the braking system dissipate heat and improve braking stability.

Wang Chuanfu’s YangWang is being looked up to(YangWang in Chinese means looking up)

In the past year, China has launched an endless stream of new electric vehicle models. Relevant data shows that for every two new energy vehicles launched globally in 2022, one will come from China.

Among the many new domestic electric vehicles, there is no doubt that the YangWang U8 and U9 just released by BYD at the beginning of 2023 are the most popular among them and the most shocking to the outside world.

This is not only because at the press conference, the YangWang U8 demonstrated technologies such as tank U-turning and water floating that clearly surpassed the mainstream electric vehicles on the market. More importantly, this is also the first time that the price of a domestic electric vehicle has reached over one million.

In the week when BYD released its new car, many media conducted detailed analysis of BYD YangWang and its new “YiSiFang” technology from multiple dimensions such as product and brand.

But there is one question that I think is still ignored, and that is how to evaluate:

What role does BYD YangWang and “YiSiFang” technology play in the historical process of the fifth disruptive technological revolution in the automobile industry?

Or to put it simply, if you have a budget of one million to buy a car now, why not buy a Porsche Taycan or Tesla Model S, but start paying for a BYD YangWang?

01

Looking at the history of the automobile industry over the past one hundred years, we will find a pattern:

The rise of almost all new car brands occurs at key nodes of several automotive technology revolutions, and the birth of high-end car brands is inseparable from the maturity of a new top-level core technology.

For example, after the first industrial revolution, the steam engine took the lead in becoming the core source of power for human beings to propel machines. However, until the mid-19th century, during the 20 years when the steam engine was most prosperous, there were still weaknesses that were unstable and difficult to control. More than 10,000 accidents occurred. A boiler explosion occurred.

An engine like this that can lift passengers into the sky every now and then is not reliable at all, and mature cars have become an unattainable dream.

The first four-stroke internal combustion engine that initially solved the safety problem was invented by a German named August Otto.

In 1867, after summarizing the existing scientific theories at the time and going through many failed attempts, Otto finally created a reciprocating piston four-stroke internal combustion engine. It was not only safer and easier to control, but its thermal efficiency also reached the leading level at the time. 14%.

The emergence of the Otto four-stroke internal combustion engine can be said to be the foundation of modern automobiles and a key node in the first disruptive technological revolution in automobiles.

Members of the Alto internal combustion engine R&D team reaped the dividends of this wave of technological innovation, and some of them later founded Mercedes-Benz, Maybach and BMW respectively.

The power problem of the car was solved, but soon the automobile industry faced a second unsolvable problem, which was the high selling price due to unreasonable production processes.

The company leading this round of technological revolution is Ford of the United States.

In 1913, Henry Ford was inspired by the slaughterhouse assembly line and created the world’s first automobile production line, reducing the assembly time of a car from the original 12 hours to 90 minutes.

Due to the adoption of more efficient production methods, the time, cost, manpower and other resources required have dropped significantly, allowing the price of Ford cars to drop from US$850 to less than US$300.

By 1924, Ford was producing a car every 24 seconds on average, and workers on the assembly line could buy one with three months’ wages.

By 1927, Ford’s sales accounted for 50% of the world’s total automobile sales, becoming the biggest beneficiary of the second round of automobile technology revolution.

Similarly, the third disruptive technological revolution in automobiles was the introduction of aerodynamic research results into automobile design in the late World War II. The Volkswagen Beetle was the product of this technological revolution.

The Beetle was considered a masterpiece of streamlined design at the time. The vehicle had minimal wind resistance, a solid body structure and chassis, and was both practical and durable.

With this car selling well in Europe and the United States, Volkswagen not only quickly grew to become the number one automobile company in Europe and the fourth in the world, but also made a huge economic contribution to Germany’s post-war reconstruction.

The fourth automotive disruptive technology revolution is the automotive electronics revolution from the late 1980s to around 2004. We are familiar with the engine management system, ABS anti-lock braking system, ESP electronic stability program, as well as airbag control, intelligent Turning headlights, tire pressure monitoring, etc. are mostly products of this revolution.

Japanese brands such as Toyota and Honda are the beneficiaries of this round of technological revolution.

The fifth automobile electrification revolution is an era that all of us are experiencing personally, and it is also the story that all automobile brands are currently writing.

This round of technological revolution, in addition to achieving the goal of allowing humans to use cleaner and cheaper energy, the most important thing is to achieve precise control of cars that has never been achieved in the era of gasoline vehicles through electrification, or in other words In other words, the car must be transformed from a traditional mechanical device into a more intelligent robot.

02

The first leader of the automobile electrification revolution is undoubtedly Tesla. Its disruptive contribution started with Model 3. Model 3 gave the car for the first time a super brain similar to several computers. Able to achieve precise control of the car through centralized decision-making.

How to correctly understand the above sentence?

To give an example, for example, in the past, the electronics and electrical components of traditional petrol vehicles, even luxury cars, used a distributed structure.

Each car is equipped with many microcontrollers. The total number of microcomputers on the car is as many as twenty or thirty. You can also understand this as the enfeoffment system in ancient Chinese society. Different areas on the car have different kings.

The Tesla Model 3 began to bring all microcontrollers together and use a domain controller structure, which is similar to using a super brain to solve all decision-making problems. You can understand it as the county system of ancient Chinese society. Everything is important. Decisions are made by the central government.

A direct benefit of this is that each area in the car no longer works independently, pushing intelligence forward a big step.

For example, you will find that it is not until the era of electric vehicles that cars become like mobile phones. Manufacturers can push a new version to you every now and then based on user feedback and needs.

In the first half of 2022, CITIC Securities spent two months dismantling a Tesla Model 3 from beginning to end. From the electronic and electrical architecture, thermal management system and other aspects, it fully explained the advantages of Tesla. Very clear.

But the problem is that judging from the results of the brokerage dismantling, Tesla has only achieved the step of using a unified brain to make decisions, and domestic new energy vehicles have also caught up with this step. But if we use the human body as a metaphor:

Although Tesla now has a super brain, its limbs still have no joints, tendons, or nerve endings, and it still cannot achieve the goal of subversive precise control of the car.

It can be said that if there are 10 steps in the automotive electrification technology revolution, companies represented by Tesla stopped moving forward after completing 4 or 5 steps a few years ago. The rest of the way is until BYD YangWang After the emergence of YiSiFang technology and the technology it is equipped with, we finally saw hope.

How exaggerated has BYD YangWang’s precise control of the car body reached?

All experienced drivers know that there is an extremely dangerous driving scenario on the highway, which is a sudden tire puncture of the car.

The accident rate after a high-speed tire blowout is almost 100%. At the same time, if the speed when the tire blows out exceeds 120 yards per hour, the mortality rate after a tire blowout exceeds 80%.

This problem is unsolvable whether it is placed on traditional oil-based vehicles or on those previous electric vehicles. It has now been solved by BYD.

In the past, it was common sense that if the brakes were broken, the car would not be able to brake, but BYD YangWang can achieve a stopping distance of less than 40m from 100 kilometers without the brakes working.

BYD YangWang can achieve agile steering capabilities of less than 12 meters when the steering gear is not working, allowing large SUVs to have the same flexibility as A0-class cars.

The car can be controlled without the steering and braking systems of a traditional car. From this point of view alone, it is enough to show how disruptive BYD YangWang is this time.

Not to mention, in addition to the above-mentioned functions, it can also achieve dry pulling up sand slopes, floating and wading steering to get out of trouble, and tank U-turns on various road surfaces.

In addition to these functions, the YangWang series released by BYD this time also gives people the feeling of a hard bridge and a hard horse in terms of hardware.

For example, the BYD YangWang U8 is positioned as a pure electric hardcore off-road vehicle. As a super large off-road vehicle, it can accelerate from 0 to 0 to 100 mph in just 3 seconds. It can easily adapt to the performance needs of various extreme scenarios such as street, off-road, and track.

Many people who have watched the press conference have the same idea as me. They always feel that BYD YangWang’s products are so popular this time that they seem to be a bit overwhelming. But at the same time, there will also be a doubt, that is:

With so many functions, how does BYD achieve them?

03

While watching the press conference, I was deeply impressed by the words of BYD founder and chairman Wang Chuanfu. He said, “Technological innovation is the only opportunity to take the lead in change.”

In fact, the BYD YangWang we mentioned above can safely stop after a high-speed tire blowout, turn around the tank, drive in water, and can brake even if the brakes are not working. These functions are all achieved through BYD’s 100% independently developed “YiSiFang” technology. of.

In other words, YiSiFang is the biggest black technology behind BYD YangWang.

According to BYD’s official disclosure, YiSiFang’s core technology includes three components: four-motor independent control, extreme anti-skid control and body stability control.

Let’s talk about “four-motor independent control” first. As the name suggests, four motors are used to achieve independent and precise control of four tires.

In fact, regarding the concept of four motors, brands such as Tesla, BMW, and Subaru have also come up with concept cars to create gimmicks in the past, but none of them has achieved mass production.

The reason is also very simple, because this technology has many difficulties:

For example, if a single wheel loses control, it is easy to roll over during driving; on rainy, snowy and icy roads, how to coordinate wheel rotation to prevent the car from spinning; the four motors consume a lot of power, which is a big test for the battery.

These are technical challenges faced by mass-produced models, and BYD has become the first company to solve these problems.

Relevant data shows that BYD is currently the company with the largest number of patents related to wheel motors in the world, and has formed a cliff-like lead with the second echelon.

The other two core technologies of “YiSiFang”, body stability control and extreme anti-skid control, can be understood as BYD’s solutions to the above technical challenges.

This is a complex solution that includes perception, decision-making and execution. Let me briefly introduce it.

Take “body stability control” as an example. We said above that after a single tire of the BYD YangWang had a puncture on the highway at a speed of 120 yards per hour, the driver was able to stop the vehicle stably and controllably. How is this process achieved?

At the moment when the car has a tire puncture, if the vehicle is equipped with YiSiFang technology, YiSiFang can quickly sense it and accurately adjust the torque of the remaining three wheels at a frequency of 1,000 times per second, providing powerful supplementary intervention to the body posture through the drive wheels in a timely manner. , to help the driver stop the vehicle stably and controllably.

It can be seen that in order to achieve independent and precise control of four tires by four motors, the process must be inseparable from a more precise control algorithm and an electric drive system with higher perception capabilities.

Only under the comprehensive control of algorithms, electric drives and motors, is it possible to achieve millisecond-level high-speed adjustment of tires.

Therefore, this is definitely not something that can be accomplished by simply stacking technology. In fact, it took YiSiFang a full twenty years from the first proposal to its official launch.

When mentioning “YiSiFang” technology at the press conference, BYD made a more appropriate metaphor:

Make the car more intelligent and have four independent and powerful legs like a cheetah.

end

In 2022, BYD will take the top spot in global new energy vehicle sales.

At the beginning of 2023, BYD emerged with its YiSiFang technology and once again surpassed Tesla to become the most powerful company in body control in the electrification era, pushing the safety and intelligence of electric vehicles a big step forward.

Looking back at BYD’s bitter path in the past to hit the high-end route, we have to lament the company’s perseverance and never forgetting its original aspirations.

In March 2021, when Wang Chuanfu was a guest on the “Zui Jian” program, he told Yu Minhong a story about his first trip to the United States. He said:

“When I went to the United States for the first time, they kept asking me to show him my return ticket. I felt very uncomfortable, as if I was relying on you to stay in the United States and not come back. Why should I depend on you not to come back to the United States?”

This kind of insult was actually an insult from a rich and powerful country to a relatively backward country at that time. The only thing you can do is to become stronger than him. In the words of Wang Chuanfu:

“We Chinese are not stupid. Our industry is no worse than yours, or even better than yours. We are just trying to make a living, hoping to make this industry bigger and save face for the Chinese people.”

Nearly 30 years have passed since he first came to the United States, and Wang Chuanfu finally did it.

YangWang U9 real cars are arriving in stores one after another. Is it considered the performance ceiling of Chinese-made cars?

Part 1 Preface

High-end performance sports cars often represent the car-making technology of a brand or even a country. Nowadays, more and more independent brands are rapidly rising and are constantly impacting the high-end, launching their own performance flagship models. Those million-level supercars that were once out of reach have gradually come closer to the public. BYD’s new coupe YangWang U9 is one of them.

As BYD’s high-end new energy brand, YangWang attracts countless attention every time it launches a new car. There is YangWang U8 in the front and YangWang U9 in the back. The attention has always been high. Recently, many consumers have seen the real appearance of YangWang U9 in offline physical stores, which means that the launch date of YangWang U9 is approaching. So, what are the highlights of this new car, and can it be considered to be on the domestic performance ceiling? Let’s take a look together.

Part 2 Appearance:Who doesn’t want to take a second look?

As a supercar, its appearance must be eye-catching, and YangWang U9 has achieved this. The new car adopts the “Gateway of Time and Space” design language. The shape of the headlights is inspired by outer space. The style is sharp and recognizable. The front hood is also designed with multiple raised ribs, full of fighting atmosphere, and the iconic Oracle word “electricity” The LOGO also reflects strong traditional Chinese cultural elements, and the entire front of the car brings a strong visual impact.

Looking down, the grille part of YangWang U9 adopts a three-section design. The size of the air guide grooves on both sides is relatively large. The middle part is equipped with a flat air inlet. The lower part adopts a shovel-shaped design and carbon fiber elements, further Highlights the sporty feel.

On the side of the body, YangWang U9 vividly displays the essence of a supercar. The body adopts a classic body proportion structure, and the low-lying and swooping posture of the body presents a dynamic effect that is eager to take action. In addition, the lines formed by the combination of the fenders and the lower edge of the side windows are elegant and dynamic, and a large number of aerodynamic kits are used. The most eye-catching thing is the opening method of the butterfly door. As soon as the door is opened, the atmosphere is instantly filled.

According to the latest declaration information, the length, width and height of YangWang U9 are 4966/2029/1295 (1338) mm respectively, the wheelbase is 2900mm, the wheel size is 275/35 R21 and 325/30 R21, and it will also be available in a variety of colors of brake calipers.

At the rear of the car, the design of the YangWang U9 is also very radical. In addition to a large electric spoiler, it is also equipped with an exaggerated diffuser design, showing the excellent performance of the new car. Moreover, the through-type blackened taillights further stretch the horizontal visual width of the rear of the car, which is quite eye-catching when lit.

Part 3 Interior: Can the sense of technology be integrated with combat style?

Coming inside the car, the biggest feeling that YangWang U9 gives us is that it perfectly integrates the combat atmosphere with the sense of technology. A large area of the interior is wrapped in suede material, which is in line with the tone of a supercar. Although this interior is very different from the YangWang U8 in terms of details, the design concept is basically the same.

The center console of YangWang U9 adopts a symmetrical layout and provides a three-spoke flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel, a suspended full LCD instrument panel, a vertically laid out central control screen and a suspended co-pilot entertainment screen. The bottom of the operating table is also hollowed out to expand the storage space.

Judging from the actual car, YangWang U9 adopts a two-seater layout in terms of seats. There are stitching decorations on the seats. It looks good in terms of wrapping and support. However, there is currently no official information on the specific functionality. .

We mentioned earlier that the YangWang U9 will adopt a butterfly door frameless door design. From the inside, some line decorations are also added to the doors, echoing the lines on the seats. In addition, there is some carbon fiber trim on the door sills.

Part 4 Power: Is the electric coupe powerful enough?

For a supercar, the power performance and handling performance of the vehicle itself should be what everyone pays most attention to. As an electric supercar, how does YangWang U9 perform in this regard?

According to the latest application information, YangWang U9 will be equipped with YiSiFang platform technology, providing four wheels and four motors. The maximum power of the four motors is 240kW, and the combined power is 960kW, which is 1306 horsepower. The official 0-100km/h acceleration can It reaches 2 seconds and will be matched with a blade battery. The comprehensive battery life may exceed 1,000km. This kind of power, acceleration, and battery life performance are already very good among models of the same class.

I don’t know if you still remember that as early as the YangWang U9 press conference, this ultra-luxury sports car performed a “dance” live, and then took off on the spot. In fact, this is due to the fact that it is equipped with the more complex YunNian-X intelligent electromagnetic body control system, which is also the flagship product of BYD Yunnan’s technology series. With it, YangWang U9 can not only “dance”, but also achieve “three-wheel normal driving”, as well as the “jumping on the spot” demonstrated at the press conference. Compared with Porsche Active Ride, YunNian-X, which was released earlier, has advanced technology It is more mature and has richer functions.

Part 5 Conclusion

From the current point of view, although the YangWang U9 is an electric supercar, it has absorbed the classic design and essence of a fuel coupe on the one hand, and on the other hand it has not lost its powerful power performance. It is absolutely perfect to drive such a car on the road. 100% return rate. However, with a million-level price, it is destined to be beyond the reach of the general public, and future sales should not be too high. However, the existence of YangWang U9 can enhance YangWang’s brand power and help it stabilize its position in the high-end market. I don’t know what you think of this new car, so let’s have a chat.

YangWang U9 | It’s so different

Speeding on the track is by no means the only imagination for YangWang U9. With the unprecedented Yunnan-X, it brings a new definition of pure electric supercar.
Instantaneous lift, realizing the pure electric performance supercar jumps upward, allowing the development of China’s chassis technology to leap into new life. With the integrated control of horizontal, vertical and vertical directions as the core, Yunnan-X gives YangWang U9 an elevated space that can be played, streeted and competed.

Part 1: Yunnan-X Intelligent Fully Active Body Control System:

1. Peak single-axis lifting rate is as high as 500mm/s
2. Average single-axis lifting speed 375mm/s
3. YangWang U9 can quickly rise 50mm
4. High voltage platform 800V
5. System power can reach up to 36kW
6. The maximum adjustment stroke is 75mm

Thanks to the high-voltage platform and highly integrated main power source, the adjustment speed is industry-leading and the main power is super large. In addition, the four suspension control motors are decoupled from each other. Even if one suspension motor fails, it will not affect the driving of the entire vehicle, providing high stability system capabilities. It can achieve fully active output for optimal control, reversely offset road bumps, and give supercars unprecedented driving comfort.

Part 2: Ultimate comfort – an unprecedented anti-gravity and anti-centrifugal force experience

1. Lateral stability: No drifting during sharp turns, and the roll “disappears”
2. Longitudinal stability: Don’t look up when starting, don’t nod when braking.
3. Vertical stability: No sensation of bumps, just like walking on flat ground

Through multiple sets of sensing hardware, Yunnan Intelligent Computing Center outputs the best control strategy. The high-voltage suspension motor outputs instantaneous high active power to the shock absorber, quickly and actively adjusts the damping and stroke, and outputs control force to offset vibration, thereby achieving unprecedented response. Gravity and anti-centrifugal force experience.

Part 3: Ultimate Control – Bringing the most enjoyable track driving experience in the electrification era

The motor electronically controlled power source is highly integrated, and the innovative shock absorber can instantly output more than 1 ton of main power. During rapid acceleration, deceleration, cornering, and bumpy road shoulders on the track, it can increase the grip and achieve the ultimate control experience:
1. When passing through bumpy roads such as road shoulders at high speed, the average height adjustment speed is as fast as 375mm/s, ensuring four-wheel grip and improving control.
2. By automatically adjusting the support of the left and right suspensions, the inner suspension is appropriately extended to ensure the grip of the inner wheels, and the rigidity of the outer suspension is increased to reduce body roll, making the vehicle more controllable in high-speed corners, thus improving handling. Cornering speed.
3. Derived from the ultimate technical support of Yunnan-X, the anti-pitch capability has been significantly improved. Give supercar performance a better presentation on the track. Do not raise your head when accelerating rapidly, and do not nod when decelerating rapidly.
