What Differentiates the XiM23

Yanfeng designers are using a mobile app connected to the vehicle to enable the car to recognize the owner and allow them to input the digital applications they want to use. The company says the digital technology is deeply integrated into the car's interior for greater flexibility to adjust to occupants changing needs. Lighting is critical inside the vehicle and spotlights design features in order to help occupants engage and control the functionality. There is a digital Calm Mode for easy entrance and getting settled into the vehicle. The Rich Mode is for full, interactive driving. The XiM23 can be driven manually or go fully autonomous. There is a huge 8K display that is the width of the dashboard and also two, slim display on the floor consoles.
Research Driven Car
Yanfeng designers and engineers have built this vehicle based on substantive research. They surveyed hundreds of consumers in five nations to identify what features would create the perfect car. The research found 5 keys: simplicity, personalization, service, control and comfort with an emphasis on the vehicle's constant adaptation to the customer's changing needs and expectations. The result is the XiM23 which is on display at Yanfeng's European headquarters in Neuss, Germany.
