Extremely Krypton 001 fully upgrades Qualcomm 8155 chip

On the evening of July 11, Jikr announced the upgrade plan of Jikr 001, which involves Qualcomm 8155 and system upgrade. There is no charge for the upgrade and no distinction is made between delivered and non-delivered users, and delivered users can book an upgrade on August 1.

In this upgrade, the highly popular LCC+ACC full-speed active cruise control function finally arrived. The dTCS intelligent anti-skid system will be pushed to all users, while the intelligent four-wheel drive system will be pushed to the YOU version.

In addition, the conference also brought the Extreme Krypton 001 ME version to meet everyone's needs for performance and battery life, with prices starting at 349,000.

This upgrade makes up for some of the regrets reported by previous owners. However, users who have used iPhone know that the theory and actual experience of system upgrade are two different things. Therefore, the actual performance of the upgraded Ji Krypton 001 needs to be evaluated in the actual measurement.

Alfa Romeo will launch a pure electric version of the Giulia

According to InsideEVs, Alfa Romeo's Giulia models will gradually abandon the internal combustion engine power and fully embrace the pure electric embrace.

Alfa Romeo, as a brand under the Stellantis Group, the Giulia pure electric version will be built based on the group's STLA Large platform, with a pure electric cruising range of about 800km, which will be unveiled in 2027.

Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato confirmed the news in an interview with AutoExpress, saying that the driving experience will still be what Giulia is after, "even if I have a ton of batteries behind me".

I really love the interior of the Giulia.

New Xiaopeng P7 real car spy photos: expected to be equipped with lidar

Recently, a set of road test spy photos of the new Xpeng P7 have been exposed. The new car basically maintains the current shape, but it can be clearly seen that the headlights of the new car are narrower and longer, and are suspected to be equipped with lidar.

In terms of interior, the new car is equipped with the same new style steering wheel as Xiaopeng G9, and adopts the design of metal buttons + scroll wheel, which can effectively reduce the probability of accidental touch.

The design of the connected screen is the same as that of the current P7, but the 3D UI of the new Xmart 4.0 appears on the dashboard of the new car in the spy photos, which is not available in the current model.

In addition, the shape of the cup holder in the new car has been changed. The front of the cup holder seems to be equipped with two wireless charging positions, and the armrest box also adopts a new style. (Fast Technology)

Xiaopeng finally changed the location of the wireless charging. It was really inconvenient to hold the phone in the original location.

Evergrande Property distributes Hengchi 5 sales assessment tasks to employees

On July 11, Peng Mei News learned that Evergrande Property has distributed Hengchi 5 sales assessment tasks to employees, and the number of sales is determined by the number of owners in the building.

On the evening of July 6, Evergrande Motor held a pre-sale conference for the Hengchi 5. The luxury version of the model is priced at 179,000 yuan.

Interestingly, at the press conference, the biggest highlight was not the car, but its special car buying rights:

The car can be returned for a refund within 15 days after the car is picked up, a 40% discount repurchase within 3 years after the car is picked up, a deposit of 10,000 yuan to 20,000 yuan, a free H-Pilot intelligent assisted driving package, a lifetime warranty for the whole vehicle, a lifetime warranty for Sandian, and a lifetime Enjoy free basic maintenance twice a year, free home charging piles and free installation services, free 5-year (10G/month) on-board data package, and 24-hour free road assistance for life.

Suddenly a little distressed about Evergrande's sales.

Volkswagen delays release of new models due to software issues

According to overseas media Ecomento, due to software development schedule problems, the launch of new models of Volkswagen's brands Audi, Porsche and Bentley will be later than expected, including the Audi Artemis electric car series.

Originally unveiled in 2022, the Artemis project is now slated for a 2025 launch, but due to schedule issues at Volkswagen's software company Cariad, the model's launch can only be delayed until 2027.

Also, at the current pace, Bentley may not be able to go all-electric by 2030 as planned.

Rivian delivered 4,467 vehicles globally in the second quarter

Recently, the US pure electric pickup truck manufacturer Rivian said it delivered 4,467 electric vehicles in the second quarter, up from 1,227 in the first quarter.

"These figures remain in line with the company's expectations, and we are on track to achieve our previous target of 25,000 vehicles per year," Rivian said in a statement.

The data shows that Rivian's production in the first half of this year did not show a decline like Tesla and other electric car brands.

Previously, Tesla reported its first quarterly drop in deliveries in two years: 254,695 vehicles were delivered globally in the second quarter, a drop of nearly 18% quarter-on-quarter. Tesla said supply chain constraints and the closure of its Shanghai Gigafactory have hampered the growth in deliveries.

Another U.S. pure-electric vehicle startup, Lucid, has cut its production target for this year to 12,000-14,000 units, down from its original plan of 20,000 units.

Is it difficult for Rivian's first-quarter delivery data to decline again? (manual dog head)

Hong Kong Transport and Logistics Bureau: Limit the number of dashboard attachments

The car doesn't work? You might opt ​​for a phone mount.

Generally speaking, we only hang one mobile phone. If necessary, we may hang two, but four, five or six, have you seen it?

This is not uncommon in Hong Kong.

Many professional drivers have more than a dozen phones and tablets on their dashboards for navigation, ordering and traffic information. This distraction to drivers has led to a rising number of casualties on the city's roads, and authorities are planning action to address the problem.

The South China Morning Post reported that the Hong Kong Transport and Logistics Bureau suggested that drivers could face fines of up to HK$2,000 (about 1,710 yuan) if they put more than two devices on their car's dashboard.

The traffic police will issue 450 Hong Kong dollars (about 384 yuan) fines to first-time offenders, while those who have not corrected themselves and some worse cases will be handed over to the court for punishment in the future.

Dong Chejun doesn't like to hang his mobile phone on the dashboard very much, it looks very awkward, what do you think?

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
