Baidu’s electric vehicle (EV) subsidiary Jidu Auto unveiled its first concept car on Wednesday, with representatives promising the model will be 90% similar when it goes into mass production this autumn. Jidu’s chief executive Xia Yiping told reporters that the company is ready to take on Tesla’s Model Y with its first consumer car, which is due for delivery in early 2023. It will be equipped with 31 sensors, including two Lidar sensors, to allow highly automated driving on Chinese streets. The company plans to price the family-friendly crossover above RMB 200,000 ($29,960) and make it in conjunction with partner Geely at a facility in the eastern city of Ningbo. [Baidu press release]
