Named the smartest cars of 2022 according to JD Power and HVR Lab


70% of the rating were Chinese models

JD Power, a US-based research, data and analytics company, and HVR Lab, the Human-Vehicle Relationship Lab, ranked the smartest cars on the Chinese market. The rating did not include Geely, Chery and Haval, which are quite well known in Russia.

When compiling the rating, two indices and expert data were taken into account. The first index (C-HVR) evaluates the effectiveness of human-vehicle interaction, the interactive features of the car and their ability not to distract a person from the road. The second index (VOC) takes into account the possibilities of interaction with passengers, user-friendliness of the interface and ease of use of smart functions.

JD Power said that smart cars in China have already reached a new level. The average result of cars in the top ten was 7.9 points, which is 0.4 points higher than the average result of all 60 models that took part in the selection.
