Premium smart electric vehicle (EV) maker BeyonCa announced its global debut on October 30, showcasing the BeyonCa Gran Turismo Opus 1, a creation made possible by the company’s unique position and capabilities.
Comprising an elite team of car industry veterans, as well as technology experts from consumer electronics and Internet companies, BeyonCa will set the standard for a super-premium EV.
BeyonCa will transcend the mindset of today’s automotive industry through its ecosystem of use cases and solutions offered in, around and beyond the car. Supported by an AI-based smart cockpit that monitors the user’s health status in real time, and the world’s first in-cabin cloud doctor service, BeyonCa will look out for the well-being of its drivers and passengers.
Weiming Soh, Founder and Chairman of BeyonCa, said: “The BeyonCa GT Opus 1 truly signifies what BeyonCa stands for, as we set out to define the super-premium smart EV segment. The result of our team’s work is the perfect combination of design, craftsmanship, comfort, sportiness, and an amazing experience.”
“The ‘smart’ part is incredibly important in defining the super-premium EV space. Our philosophy is that technologies are here to serve a purpose, but should not be the purpose itself. Rather, we will consolidate and integrate advanced technologies, and shift from function-driven to scenario-driven methodology. BeyonCa will offer users meaningful products with integrated super-premium user experience where users will enjoy the real value of services in the car, around the car, and beyond the car.”
Christian Klingler, Co-Founder of BeyonCa, said: “BeyonCa has a very clear idea, to define what it means to be a smart, super-premium car brand. We will enhance the characteristics of what makes something premium, including world-class quality. This quality is incredibly important to me throughout my career, and is both seen and felt, like when you first pick up a luxury bag or luggage. It can be achieved only by obsessing over every millimeter of what you are making. This philosophy permeates through BeyonCa, and it is combined with unbeatable world-class design.”
