The interior of Xiaopeng N5 is exposed for the first time, focusing on the B-end market

In June of this year, a car named Xiaopeng N5 appeared in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's declaration list. Its size is the same as that of the P5, and its positioning is lower than that of the P5. It focuses on the B-end market.

In appearance, the Xiaopeng N5 has eliminated the integrated headlights that traverse both ends, and the lidar opening below has also disappeared, and the tail shape is similar to that of the P5.

As for the interior of this Xiaopeng N5, netizen @德卢爱车 was exposed on social platforms a few days ago.

It can be seen that compared with Xiaopeng P5 and N5, a lot of details are omitted in the interior. The central control screen has also been replaced from the original 15.6-inch large screen to a lower-cost small screen, and the size of the instrument panel has also been reduced.

In terms of power, Xiaopeng N5 is also equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a peak power of 155kW, using a lithium iron phosphate battery from the Ningde era.

I don't know which online car-hailing platform will call this car?

Since Mitsubishi’s withdrawal, Southeast Motor’s sales have been declining. Whether this renewal meeting can restore its brand image, only the market can give the answer.

Ford CEO: The company needs batteries more than semiconductor chips

The problem is the battery.

Ford CEO Jim Farley said in an interview with CNBC yesterday that Ford’s demand for batteries is higher than for semiconductor chips.

Earlier, Ford announced that it would stop accepting orders after the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck had reached 200,000 units, because it had more than doubled the company's production capacity. Farley said: "Chips are important to electric vehicles, but now the battery is the number one issue we face."

Currently, Ford is doubling the production capacity of F-150 Lightning "at all costs".

If the demand for electric vehicles exceeds the expected supply of key materials such as lithium, automakers will face great pressure.

Volkswagen adds hundreds of billions of dollars to focus on software and electric vehicles

Yesterday, Volkswagen stated in a meeting of the Group Supervisory Board that they will invest 89 billion euros (100.96 billion US dollars) in future technologies such as electric vehicles and digitalization in the next five years to narrow the gap with Tesla.

At the same time, Volkswagen claims that its investment in the above-mentioned technology accounts for 56% of its total capital expenditure plan, and its total investment plan is 159 billion euros.

Hans Dieter Poetsch, Chairman of the Volkswagen Supervisory Board, said: "The company's strong financial resources allow us to make independent decisions. Therefore, we are also very confident that these investment decisions will guide the Volkswagen Group to future success." (Wall Street Insights)

The translation is: We have money.

European Automobile Suppliers Association: Electrification will cause 500,000 unemployment

A recent survey of nearly 100 companies conducted by the European Association of Automotive Suppliers showed that if the European Union plans to effectively ban gasoline vehicles by 2035, 500,000 people will face the risk of unemployment.

According to a survey by the European Automobile Suppliers Association, more than two-thirds of these 501,000 jobs will disappear within the next five years, which will make it difficult to alleviate the "social and economic impact" caused by mass unemployment.

In response to similar remarks, Volkswagen CEO Diss once said: "Many parts of the car have not changed. They still have seats, paint, body, interior, and wheels." (IT House)

But it is undeniable that there are indeed fewer supporting industries for electric vehicles.

Germany approves L3 autonomous driving on the road, Mercedes-Benz becomes the first car company approved

Mercedes-Benz announced on Thursday that the German Federal Motor Vehicle Administration (KBA) has officially approved the company's L3 autonomous driving system "Drive Pilot" on the road.

According to Mercedes-Benz’s plan, the S-Class and EQS flagship models will be the first to be equipped with Drive Pilot systems.

After entering the L3 automatic driving state, the driver can not only free his hands and feet, but also his eyes can leave the road. Some applications that are restricted in manual driving can also be opened during L3 automatic driving.

Due to the UN-R157 regulations, the maximum speed of L3 automatic driving is 60km/h. Once this speed is exceeded, the vehicle will return to L2 automatic driving. At this time, the party responsible for the accident will change from the car company to the driver.

Mercedes-Benz S-class equipped with Drive Pilot automatic driving system has a large number of sensors, including cameras, lidar, millimeter-wave radar, ultrasonic radar and a total of 26 sensors. The driver can turn on the L3 automatic driving function through the button on the steering wheel.

As a representative of established car companies, Mercedes-Benz has allowed traditional car companies to stand in front of the stage again.

I met a lot of good people, some of us became friends and established friendships. Generally speaking, we are always very busy.

If we want, we can meet after putting aside all the troublesome things.

This old man who has been in the paddock for twenty years is going to retire.
