Chinese autonomous vehicle startup announced on Tuesday that the first self-driving cars equipped with its latest system have rolled off the standardized production line.

The cars will begin all-weather road testing in Guangzhou, Beijing, and Shanghai, and will join the company's robotaxi fleet in scaled operations.

The road to scalable self-driving technology requires gradual exploration, from the self-research of hardware modules, the construction of a new production line, to the mass production and verification of vehicles, said Peng Jun, co-founder, and CEO of

In order to create commercial smart cars, has independently designed and developed 24 core hardware modules, including a computing platform fully adapted to self-driving functions and signal light recognition cameras.

"The cars rolling off the production line is a milestone for, especially significant in terms of standardization and mass production." The scaling of autonomous driving technology requires the ability to implement autonomous driving on a large enough scale to reduce costs and meet commercial needs, said co-founder and CTO Lou Tiancheng.

"'s goal is Autonomous Mobility Everywhere," said Tiancheng Lou. is a self-driving-focused startup that has raised a total of $1.1 billion in funding as of February 2021, valuing the company at more than $5.3 billion. gets license to conduct self-driving truck testing on open roads in Guangzhou's first self-driving cars roll off production line-CnEVPost's first self-driving cars roll off production line-CnEVPost
