Jakarta, November 3, 2022 - Wuling Motors (Wuling) today officially launched its newest vehicle, the Almaz Hybrid, which is Wuling's first hybrid vehicle in Indonesia. This SUV puts forward impressive performance and efficiency through hybrid innovation. In addition, thanks to the presence of a series of modern innovations consisting of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), Internet of Vehicle (IoV), and Wuling Indonesian Command (WIND), this latest SUV is the most complete product line of innovations in the Almaz family.
"The Almaz series has become a diamond for Wuling since it was first launched in 2019. Various innovations always complement the journey of this SUV series. Now, we continue this step through the launch of the Almaz Hybrid. The perfect combination of powerful performance, fuel efficiency and environmentally friendly mobility is realized in Almaz Hybrid, ready to improve your driving experience towards the future," explained Dian Asmahani as Brand and Marketing Director of Wuling Motors.
Carrying exciting performance, Wuling is equipped with a 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a capacity of 2,000 cc. The engine produces a maximum power of 123 hp and a torque of 168 Nm. In addition, there is also an electric motor capable of producing 174 hp and 320 Nm of torque. Furthermore, there is also a Ternary Lithium battery with a capacity of 1.8 kWh. In order to deliver these competencies to the front wheels, Wuling relies on Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) which is specifically for Almaz Hybrid.
Wuling Almaz Hybrid applies Multi-mode Hybrid Performance which consists of EV Mode, Series Hybrid, and Hybrid Parallel. In EV Mode, the wheels are driven by an electric motor that draws electrical energy from the Ternary Lithium battery. Meanwhile, in Series Hybrid mode, the wheels are still driven by an electric motor, but the gasoline engine operates to charge the battery through a motor generator. Maximum performance is produced in Parallel Hybrid mode where the gasoline engine and electric motor operate to produce wheel drive power simultaneously. This system works automatically according to battery conditions, power requirements, and road conditions.
The exterior side of the Almaz Hybrid carries a Sophisticated Design appearance that makes it look modern and sporty. This can be seen with the Prominent Hybrid Emblem that emphasizes the identity on the rear, the use of 18-inch Alloy Wheels with a new design, and the addition of dynamic blue lines that adorn the fascia of this medium SUV.
In addition, the Almaz Hybrid gets a premium and elegant touch in the interior that provides comfort while traveling. The presence of Warm Beige Leather Seats nuances in the spacious cabin space, 7-seater configuration, and Panoramic Sunroof that support enjoyable driving moments. The futuristic aspect is highlighted through the new look of the New Digital TFT Meter Cluster on the dashboard and a new transmission lever with a modern design on the center console.
The Wuling Remote Control App innovation through Internet of Vehicle (IoV) technology is also present at Almaz Hybrid. With this feature, users can connect and control the vehicle with just the touch of a finger through the MyWuling+ application and the Head Unit. Moreover, the Almaz Hybrid is supported by the first voice command feature that uses Indonesian, namely WIND for operating various features with only the keyword 'Hello Wuling'.
Other leading innovations are also equipped in every trip with the Almaz Hybrid. This SUV is the second product line to implement the ADAS feature to provide convenience and a sense of security while driving. This technology consists of 4 categories of functions, namely Adaptive Cruise, Lane Recognition, Safe Distance and Braking Assistance, and Automatic Light with a total of 12 features that support driving safety.
