A source says that the crossover BAIC Rubik’s Cube will go on sale in China next week on July 28th. The model’s unusual name is not the only thing that makes it remarkable. It also made history as the first Chinese car to have an infotainment system running Huawei HarmonyOS (an announcement was made in November 2021).
The crossover used to be known as C52X. It is now called the “Rubik’s Cube”, though there are no references here to the famous puzzle. Crossover dimensions measure 4620 x 1886×1680 mm and wheelbase length is 2735 mm. The latest design of door handles is hidden within the door.
The “Rubik’s Cube”, which is also equipped with a large central screen and a projection screen, has a projector display. The Kirin 990A single chip system powers the hardware and HarmonyOS is the software platform. The car supports telematics functions, such as starting the engine using a smartphone. It also has a 5G modem.
The crossover’s 1.5-liter turbocharged engine produces 188 horsepower. Maximum torque is 305 Nm. Prices range from $15,200 up to $22,800
