Lamborghini plans to launch an all-electric Urus, but there is no hope in the near future
A few days ago, Lamborghini design director Mitja Borkert confirmed in an interview with Australian magazine "Drivie" that its performance SUV model Urus will launch a purely electric version in the future, but it is not expected to debut until 2030.
Electric vehicles are indeed the future, but Lamborghini needs to electrify at the right time and segment, Borkert said. For now, the Lamborghini Urus, which is more suitable for daily commuting, will be their first pure electric car.
I would also like to drive the Urus for my daily commute. (manual dog head)
BMW today released a teaser image of the mid-cycle facelift of the 3 Series. It can be seen that the light group shape of the new 3 series has undergone a new change. The double "U" daytime running lights originally located at the bottom have been adjusted to a more three-dimensional double "7" shape.
If the preview image is not enough, let's take a look at the declaration map of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced earlier.
In addition to the changes in the light group, the new 3 Series has also replaced the larger hexagonal air intake grille, and the overall shape is more fierce. In addition, the new 330Li also adds a gray paint, and optional laser headlights.
The dot-matrix grille used in the 340i before has also been given to the 330i this time. Domestic users no longer need to envy the 340i owners on the other side of the ocean.
Samsung won't make its own electric cars
According to The Korea Times, two unnamed Samsung executives recently said that Samsung will not make its own electric vehicles.
Samsung believes that its efforts in the field of electric vehicles will not lead to sustainable profits. On the other hand, as a leading parts supplier to the electric vehicle industry, Samsung wants to avoid any potential conflict of interest with customers.
Simply put: it is not profitable to build a car, and it is more profitable to be a supplier.
GAC Aian's second plant will be put into operation in the fourth quarter
Recently, GAC Group pointed out in the newly disclosed investor relations activity record that the second plant in Aian will be completed and put into operation in December 2022, with an additional standard production capacity of 200,000 vehicles per year. The total investment of the project is 1.81 billion yuan. Funded by the company.
By the end of this year, GAC Aian will have an annual production capacity of 400,000 vehicles, and the increase in production capacity will effectively ease the current delivery pressure of GAC Aian.
GAC Group said that the current undelivered orders of AION are about 70,000 units, of which AION Y accounts for about 50%, AION S series accounts for about 30%, and AION V PLUS accounts for about 15%.
In addition to the 5 models currently on sale in Aion, the plant will also produce Aion's new cars.
Van + cargo bike + drone, what will it become?
The answer is the E-Tech Master OptiModale, a three-in-one model of pure electric parcel delivery recently released by Renault.
The basis of this model is a 3.5-ton Renault truck, which is equipped with a 33kWh battery pack, which can achieve a cruising range of 128 kilometers on a single charge, and a 53 kWh battery can be selected to increase the range as required.
On this truck, Renault made some room for an electric cargo bike. The bike can be lowered onto the sidewalk via a lift that comes with the truck. This cargo bike has a range of 50km and can be charged to 50% in one hour.
The group's final occupant is a Magpie quadcopter from British drone maker UAVtek, which can carry up to 2kg of cargo at a time and has a single flight time of 38 minutes.
The drone normally rests on a platform atop the cargo bed, and Renault believes it can be used in open countryside for short-distance deliveries.
Of course, this is just an idea from Renault, and there is no word on production yet.
Mercedes-Benz L3 level autonomous driving assistance system open for order
On May 17, Mercedes-Benz's L3 autonomous driving assistance system, DRIVE PILOT, was officially opened for ordering in Germany. Both S-Class and EQS models will have L3-level autonomous driving capabilities.

Mercedes said that when the feature is turned on, the vehicle can be driven automatically, and the driver does not have to pay attention to the road conditions at this time, and can even use the in-vehicle system to watch videos.
At the same time, Mercedes also said that if the vehicle has an accident with the DRIVE PILOT turned on, the company will take full legal responsibility.
But in reality, Mercedes' DRIVE PILOT isn't as good as it looks.
This function can only be used in the 13,000-kilometer highway network approved in Germany. It cannot be turned on when it is raining or the road is slippery. The speed of the vehicle is also limited to 60km/h.
But no matter what, Mercedes-Benz has become "the first person to eat crabs".
