Integrate global resources to build two global automobile platforms, namely, the "Lemon" and the "Tank"
The "Lemon" and the "Tank" are two intelligent and modular automobile platforms that were built by GWM by integrating global high-quality resources and investing more than RMB 20 billion in research and development over the past five years to target the global market. The two platforms have passed the global road tests of more than 6 million kilometers and 76 kinds of global road and extreme environment tests, and gathered analysis on application in 18 kinds of global typical environments, ensuring the global quality verified by ultra-long range, multi-environment, and highest standards.
Mu Feng, Vice President of R&D of GWM, Explaining the "Lemon" and the "Tank" Technology Platforms
The "Lemon" is positioned as a global high-intelligence modular technology platform. The vehicles built on the "Lemon" platform will boast the fine craftsman quality of lightweight technology, high performance and high safety, which are in tune with lemon's unique quality of portability, freshness, high nutritional value, and global popularity. The "Lemon" platform emphasizes vehicle performance and better body structure. It can reduce body pitch angle by 50%, steering interference force arm by 16%, steering accuracy by 16%, body lateral stiffness by 15%, and center of mass of the whole vehicle by 30mm, which improves vehicle coordination, controllability, and comfort.
GWM "Lemon" Global High-intelligence Modular Technology Platform
The "Lemon" platform eyes the next decade and has ultra-high scalability and diverse power adaptation capabilities. From the beginning of its research and development, the platform has considered the development of five model levels: A0, A, B, C, and D, and covers the global markets of three major categories: SUV, sedan, and MPV. Besides, it is natively adaptive to four powertrain solutions: internal combustion engine (ICE), multiple hybrid power (series-parallel DHT, P2, and P2+P4), battery electric vehicle (BEV), and fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). The vehicles built on the "Lemon" platform will have the world's leading fuel-efficient power. The Lemon-based vehicles will have a thermal efficiency of 41% for traditional engines and 42% for hybrid powertrains in 2022. The number will increase to 51.5% in 2025. Moreover, after being matched with the second-generation hydrogen fuel cell power system, the vehicles built on the "Lemon" platform will have the world's longest driving range of 1,100 km and the strongest acceleration performance of 0-100 km/h 4.56 seconds among the same category of products. In addition, the platform is user-centered, and the concept of "comprehensive safety" is established from the three dimensions of "occupant safety", "pedestrian safety", and "vehicle safety", truly achieving the layout planning of diverse models, deep focus, technology foresight, and professional leadership.
Mu Feng, Vice President of R&D of GWM, Explaining the "Tank" Platform
The "Tank" is positioned as a global professional intelligent off-roader platform, integrating the style of tanks-"King of Land Warfare", as well as high-quality elements such as diverse categories, diverse models, safety and reliability, and adaptation to multiple terrains into the core of the "Tank" brand. The "Tank" platform has superb power, intelligent off-road mode, and ultimate off-road capability. Its power system is a combination of 2.0T and 3.0T GDIT engines and China's first vertical 9AT transmission. The 3.0T power and torque reach 260 kW and 500 N·m, respectively, and the thermal efficiency of the engine reaches 38%, which is the best among the same level of products. At the same time, the "Tank" platform has achieved the leading off-road performance parameters through comprehensive off-road configuration and reliable hardcore intelligent four-wheel drive system. In addition, the Tank-based vehicles will feature a basic wading depth of 965 mm, an active suspension height adjustable range of 120 mm, and a climbing angle of industry limit, providing users around the world with the ultimate off-road experience.

"Coffee Intelligence" infuses life with technology
"Coffee Intelligence" is a brand of GWM's intelligent vehicle, covering intelligent cab, intelligent driving, and intelligent electronic/electrical architecture. It is an intelligent system for future mobility and a digital engine that drives GWM to transform into a global mobility technology company.
In today's world, coffee represents a leisurely and elegant state of life. "Infusing life with technology" is the value proposition of Coffee Intelligence. Combined with the application of new intelligent technology, it deeply focuses on the minds of users to create a more intelligent and comfortable car experience and provide better products and mobility services to users.
Li Peng, the GWM digitization executive officer, is introducing “Coffee Intelligence”
The “Coffee Intelligence” has first proposed the “dual intelligence integration” R&D idea, namely an integration of intelligence driving and intelligence cab in view of the user experience, and has put forward three core variables (interaction + AI + ecology) for intelligence. As planned, the “Coffee Intelligence” system will be firstly applied to WEY flagship models, and then applied in successive on all brands and models of GWM in the future.
GWM insists on independent research and development in the intelligence driving field to optimize the travel experience. The L3 automatic drive based on the Coffee Intelligence system can be expanded and will be updated continuously from the next year, and it will be advanced to L4 and even a higher level. As to the intelligence cab, it focuses on the diversified mobile space, “integrated terminal equipment and cloud” calculation platform and cross-system open structure. Centered on people, car, road and environment, the “Coffee Intelligence” may sense 720° environment, 360° interior environment and 360° exterior environment, and integrate an individual car into the urban intelligence transportation with the “integrated terminal equipment and cloud” ultra-remote sensing technology. In addition, the Coffee Intelligence system embraces the GWM 3.5-G and 4.0-G new electronic and electrical structures, making the GbE (gigabit Ethernet), 5G and V2X available. GWM took the lead in the implementation of vehicle functional safety and information security analysis process and became the first automobile enterprise obtained the information security certification of CATARC.
