Jidu Automobile today announced the latest progress in car manufacturing. Wang Weibao, head of Jidu Intelligent Driving, said that Jidu SIMUCar (simulation prototype) has entered the stage of dynamic testing.
He introduced that Jidu will inherit Baidu Apollo's latest autonomous driving technology and use Baidu Apollo's full-stack capabilities for customized research and development.
It is understood that Jidu SIMUCar will realize intelligent assisted driving in urban areas and high-speed areas by the end of this year, and will promote the mass production of freely movable car robots in 2023. (IT House)
At present, Baidu has accumulated 18 million kilometers of autonomous driving road test data.

Today, Nezha V ushered in its remodeled model V Pro a year later, the new car is priced at 7.69-80,900, and there are two models in total.
As a modified model of the Nezha V, the new car is not much different from the Nezha V in terms of appearance, and is mainly upgraded for power, safety, intelligence and service.

It can be said that Nezha Motors has reported frequent good news recently, and the delivery volume even reached 8,107 units in October.
Wuling NanoEV official image released, reservation will be opened tomorrow
Wuling recently released the official image of NanoEV, showing us the appearance of this car from multiple angles.
The overall shape of NanoEV is exactly the same as the limited edition of Disney's Zootopia previously unveiled at the Tianjin Auto Show. It only lacks some Disney elements and the vehicle is very compact.
The front face uses a luminous Wuling logo, and the rear design is also very radical. The brake lights and outline lights surround the entire rear window, giving a unique visual experience.
Its interior design is also unique, equipped with keyless entry, reversing radar, and 4-way seat adjustment. The NEDC mileage of 305 kilometers is also much longer than that of MINIEV.
However, based on Dong Chejun's aesthetics, I still think MINIEV is good-looking.
Toyota recently officially announced that a new generation of Toyota GR 86 will be introduced into the domestic market. At present, the price range of the new car on the official website of Japan is 2799,000-3512,000 yen (equivalent to about 156,800 to 196,800 yuan), and the domestic price is temporarily unknown.
Compared with the previous generation model, the new GR 86 has been greatly improved in terms of power. Its 2.4L horizontally opposed engine has 235 horsepower and a peak torque of 250N·m. (Quick Technology)
However, the brand-new Subaru BRZ with the same powertrain cannot be licensed in some regions due to emission issues. I wonder if the GR 86 can pass the "National 6b" emission standard?
GAC Honda's INTEGRA model is officially released
Last weekend, Guangqi Honda's compact sedan INTEGRA was officially released.
This model is developed based on the same Honda's new architecture as the Toben Civic, but the two models are still quite different in appearance.
The new car is equipped with a 1.5T four-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 182 horsepower. It is provided with a CVT gearbox or a 6MT gearbox.
In addition, the new car is also equipped with 18-inch cutting wheels, 12 BOSE high-performance speakers, card keys, and the latest Honda CONNECT 3.0 intelligent guidance interconnection system. There are many highlights.
Those car fans who want to buy a Port Civic, might as well go and take a look at this model.
Geely’s electric brand Jikrypton has confirmed that Chen Qi, the founder of Huawei’s autonomous driving team and former head of the autonomous driving research and development department, has recently joined Jikrypton as its vice president, responsible for the autonomous driving business.
At present, Huawei's smart car business is still in a period of intensive personnel adjustment. On the one hand, the smart car BU is still expanding at a high speed, and the autonomous driving team alone has reached about 1,000 people. On the other hand, many senior talents have left since this year. ("Finance")
In terms of extreme krypton, it was previously reported that due to the lack of manpower in the intelligent R&D team, the over-reliance on cooperation with Mobileye has affected the progress of mass production.
Extreme Krypton is working hard to change the status quo.
At the beginning of the month, "Wei Xiaoli" successively announced October delivery data. Although all three companies were trapped by the "core shortage" problem, Xiaopeng delivered more than 10,000 units in October, reaching 10,138 units; Nezha, which had just received financing from the 360 Group, squeezed into the second place with 8,107 units; ideal. With a total of 7,649 units delivered, it held the third place.
In contrast, NIO, which was still the "championship" last month, delivered only 3,667 units in October.
In October, Jianghuai NIO completed the phased transformation of the production line at the advanced manufacturing base in Hefei. Since late October, production has gradually resumed.
This is Weilai’s official explanation for the delivery volume in October. “The sales volume in October was actually very good, reaching a record high.”
NIO does not worry about selling cars, but about production capacity.
According to Weilai, the annual production capacity of the transformed manufacturing base will reach 300,000 vehicles. However, for comparison, the annual production capacity of SAIC Volkswagen’s Anting MEB new energy plant and FAW-Volkswagen’s Foshan MEB smart plant is approaching 1 million vehicles. (Securities Daily)
However, delivery volume is only one of the indicators, and factors such as product positioning, bicycle price, and profit must also be considered.
Tesla begins open testing of overcharge stations in the Netherlands
Musk officially announced that Tesla has begun an open test of overcharging stations in the Netherlands. Non-Tesla electric car owners in the Netherlands can use Tesla overcharging piles through the Tesla mobile app.
Tesla will pay close attention to the traffic situation at each site to avoid long queues.
Musk said that as long as other automakers are willing to adapt, they can use Tesla overcharged piles.
In addition, Tesla today also released a Level 2 wall-mounted charging pile that uses the standard J1772 interface, which is compatible with other electric vehicles in North America, with a maximum power of 9.6kW.
Back in China, Tesla currently has more than 7,000 supercharged piles deployed in China; in late October, Tesla became the first domestic new energy vehicle company with 1,000 charging stations.
Byton Motors, which "burned out 8.4 billion in three years and could not build a mass-produced car", was formally filed for bankruptcy and liquidation after struggling with life and death for more than a year.
Yesterday, the bankruptcy liquidation case of Nanjing Zhixing New Energy Automobile Technology Development Co., Ltd., an affiliate of Byton Motors, officially opened for trial. This means that after 3 years of investment of 8.4 billion yuan, not only the mass production of the first model M-Byte may continue to be postponed. The future of Byton Motors may not be optimistic either. (Quick Technology)
As the "Four Little Dragons", a new car-making force that once stood alongside Weilai, Xiaopeng, and Weimar, Byton Motors was once placed high hopes.
Today, at the Global Climate Summit held in Glasgow, Scotland, ZipCharge launched a portable electric car charger-ZipCharge Go.
It is very compact in size, similar in size and shape to an ordinary suitcase, weighs about 50 pounds (about 22.7 kg), and has a built-in 4kWh battery with a charging power of 7.2 kW. An 8kWh version will be launched in the future.
ZipCharge did not announce the specific selling price of ZipCharge Go, but said that it can choose to rent. The starting price is 49 pounds per month (approximately 433 yuan).
Unexpectedly, the car also has its "shared charging treasure".
The British start-up Northern Light Motors has just developed a hybrid horizontal tricycle code-named "428". Although it still burns oil in nature, it allows the generator to cooperate with the drive motor to achieve more efficient operation through non-fuel direct drive.
Interestingly, this hybrid system allows users to generate electricity by stepping on relatively relaxed terrain, which is stored in the battery to provide additional power output when going uphill or starting.
If you have better physical strength, you can maintain a speed of 56km/h and drive more than 80 kilometers per hour. Even if the battery is exhausted, you can continue to move it by pedaling.
You must not have imagined that this hybrid tricycle is currently on sale, with a starting price of approximately RMB 22,000.
Porsche Asia Pacific Dario talks about Chinese motorsports
"Indeed, compared with Europe, the market and history of racing started a little later in China," said Dario, senior manager of Porsche Asia Pacific Motorsports. "But China has a very good point, that is, it learns quickly and develops very quickly. ."
He believes that to promote China's racing culture, more people need to have access to racing and the opportunity to go on the track.
In the past, it was very difficult to enter the professional racing circle in China. There were gaps between different levels of events. For example, it is difficult for a kart driver to jump directly to those professional Asian series.
We need some competitions suitable for entry-level racers, so that those with less experience have an exclusive entry platform for racing.
When technology companies and society put the hope and resources of future transportation on self-driving cars, Peter Norton pointed out in the new book "Autonorama": It makes us mistakenly believe that this is the only way out.
This is already a cliché: whether you like it or not, self-driving cars will come, and sooner than you think. It doesn't matter what we want, because technology drives history, and we are told that technology has chosen self-driving cars. Meeting people's real needs has never been the focus.
"Car dependency" makes the public think that there is no better choice in the future. Whether rich or poor, everyone must drive or ride a car. The urban form must also be completely reshaped around cars.
This also allows the development needs and resources of public transportation to be placed in a more secondary position, and these choices are more sustainable and fair.
Real urban mobility innovation needs not self-driving cars, but autonomous people: travellers who have the right to choose.
Norton believes that this requires us to broaden our horizons, whether it is high-tech, zero-technology or everything in between, we can contribute to solving problems.
More importantly, he believes that we must take the initiative to think about what kind of future we want, and then talk about what technology is needed, instead of letting technology define our goals.
Today's topic: 6 billion should be donated?
Yesterday morning, Tesla CEO Elon Musk suddenly chanted Cao Zhi's "Seven Steps" on his personal Twitter, in response to David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Program.
This also starts with Tesla’s soaring share price. On the evening of October 25th, with the closing of U.S. stocks, Tesla’s market value exceeded $1 trillion for the first time, accompanied by the tight pace of the World Food Program. force.
David Beasley believes that as long as Musk donates 2% of his personal wealth, that is, 6 billion US dollars, the world hunger problem can be solved.
In this regard, Max said he could sell Tesla shares for user donations, but the condition is that Beasley must clarify the detailed use of the 6 billion. Beasley responded: "You can meet anywhere."
Then there was the scene of Musk chanting poems:
Do you think this 6 billion should be donated?
