Inside, you’ll find a minimalist interior with a 15.6-inch central control screen equipped with Deepal OS. The two-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel adds a modern touch, and there’s a 53-inch AR-HUD powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip. The central control screen supports intelligent voice commands for navigation and music control, Wi-Fi hotspots, Apple CarPlay, and Huawei HiCar.
