On Wednesday, Chinese electric vehicle maker Li Auto teased its new L9 vehicle. However, due to the impact of the current epidemic outbreak, the launch conference for the vehicle, originally scheduled for April 16, will be postponed. The specific time will be announced after confirmation.
Li Auto gave some indication as to what consumers can expect in the new vehicle, namely that the L9’s central control screen, passenger entertainment screen and rear cabin entertainment screen will all be able to project feeds from end users’ Nintendo Switch devices. The connection will be made possible by using the usual Type-C interface.
The company also pointed out that the Type-C interface will be able to provide 60W of charging power while reducing the number of cables needed to connect the device to the consoles. Since the Nintendo Switch’s 3A was designed for home users, it easily supports four players at one time.
Li Auto‘s L9 is also equipped with a 220V power supply in the car and a HDMI-Type-C adapter cable. The vehicle is also able to charge devices through the Type-C interface, a popular feature found on many modern mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
In terms of configuration, Li Auto‘s L9 is equipped with an automotive grade OLED screen with 3K resolution, 21 speakers with a flagship grade sound system and 7.3.4 panoramic sound layout with a second-row 4D immersive audio and video system.
Li Xiang, Founder of Li Auto, previously said that the goal of L9 was to meet the demand that the current Li ONE fails to satisfy. Further, the company wants to go above and beyond what customers expect and imagine. His goal for family vehicles is not only to sell nearly 100,000 units per year, but “to occupy more than 20% of the family user market.” The company currently only occupies 2% of the market.
