Tesla Cybertruck real car re-exposed, ground clearance increased
Yesterday, Tesla welcomed a surprise visitor to an event at its new global engineering headquarters in Palo Alto, California — the Cybertruck.
This video shows the Cybertruck with its suspension set to its highest position, just like the low-quality video of the real car that leaked earlier this week.
Several Tesla employees can be seen surrounding the Cybertruck, some of whom appear to be guiding the driver over the curb and onto the lawn.
Although this is just a small lawn, we can still look forward to the off-road performance of Cybertruck. As early as 2020, Musk said that Tesla was studying how to increase the travel of the air suspension to have better off-road performance.
Meizu FlymeAuto in-car system interface exposed
On February 23, Meizu disclosed the interface details of FlymeAuto for the first time, revealing the design concept of "Alive Design" as a whole.
In the Flyme Link negative screen specially customized for mobile phone-car interconnection, Meizu has made a special priority display for high-frequency functions, and it is expected to support application circulation like Hongmeng cockpit.
In the split-screen mode of music and map navigation, FlymeAuto can open dual apps at the same time, the split-screen ratio can be adjusted freely, and the in-app layout will also be adjusted according to the ratio.
In the "Nap Mode", the fireflies on the screen of the car will interact with the ambient light. When opening/closing the door, the fireflies will also create a "blowing" texture accompanied by sound effects.
In the comment area of the Galaxy L7 last night, many friends mentioned Flyme Auto, so this is coming.
Xiaopeng G9 will remove lidar from its European models
According to Teslarati, the upcoming Xpeng G9, which will be launched in the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, will not be equipped with lidar.
In this regard, Martin Stegelmeier, head of European product planning at Xiaopeng Motors, explained that this is mainly due to cost considerations.
LiDAR is expensive. Xpeng Motors wants to be at the forefront of ADAS for European automakers, but we also need to offer competitive pricing. The Xpeng G9 can't do that with lidar on board.
In some models of the domestic version released in September 2022, Xiaopeng G9 is equipped with a laser radar under the headlights on both sides of the front of the car, and the supplier is Sagitar Juchuang.
Zhiji Automobile was exposed to "water injection" to save data
According to a report from Sina Technology, a large number of blind orders of Zhiji Automobile were transferred, and sales were saved by water injection data.
According to the official data released by Zhiji, as of February 1, blind orders for Zhiji LS7 exceeded 10,000. Zhiji CEO Liu Tao also said one after another that the passenger flow of Zhiji Experience Center has ushered in explosive growth, and even there are long queues for test drives in stores.
However, it should be noted that the deposit required for Zhiji LS7 blind order is 888 yuan. Due to the low deposit required for blind order, the gold content of Zhiji LS7 blind order data has also been questioned.
At present, there are a large number of Zhiji LS7 blind order orders appearing on the second-hand trading platform. Individual users hold several orders looking for "receivers", and some are even employees of Zhiji Auto Experience Store, claiming that they have "extra" orders in their hands.
At the same time, Liu Tao opened up a new marketing technique. He said that Zhiji Auto's sales target for 2023 is 45,000 units, and it hopes to reach a production and sales scale of 200,000-300,000 units by 2025.
This means that compared with 2022, the sales of Zhiji cars will increase by 800%.
In January this year, the sales volume of Zhiji Automobile was only 507 units, which continued to fall into a downturn.
Tesla opens global engineering headquarters in California
On February 22, US time, Tesla's global engineering headquarters was officially unveiled in California.
On stage, Musk said with a smile on his face: "In the past, no one believed in, and no one made electric cars. Now, the auto industry has to accept that electric cars are the future. These seemingly impossible things, although late, arrive."
Tesla's global engineering headquarters is located at the former HP headquarters in Palo Alto. Musk said that HP opened "Silicon Valley" here, and now Tesla has taken over (the office building), which is a poetic transformation. Tesla will conduct research and development of FSD, robots, and Dojo at the headquarters.
As of 2022, Tesla has 47,000 employees in California. Since 2016, Tesla has invested more than $5 billion in California.
Tesla currently operates in multiple locations in California:
- Fremont OEMs
- Global Engineering Headquarters in Palo Alto
- Los Angeles Design Center
- Lathrop's energy storage battery factory
- Maxwell Corporation of San Diego
Faraday Future unveils employee incentive plan to speed up production work
On February 24, Faraday Future announced a company production and delivery incentive plan. According to the plan, the company will issue bonuses and equity incentive awards to all FF employees on the job when production begins.

The first sodium-ion battery test vehicle was unveiled to the public
On February 23, the industry's first sodium-ion battery test vehicle jointly built by Sihao New Energy and Zhongke Haina was unveiled to the public.
The loading test is a sodium-ion battery pack with cellular battery technology. The cruising range of this model is 252km, the battery capacity is 25kWh, and the fast charging time is 15-20 minutes.
Compared with lithium-ion batteries, sodium-ion batteries have faster charging efficiency, lower cost and better safety performance, but have a lower cycle life.
Less than 2 years after abandoning millimeter-wave radar, Tesla may enable 4D radar
According to news on February 22, Tesla's new HW4.0 computer board was exposed by the pusher Greetheonly, showing that the new Ethernet interface is expected to be connected to 4D millimeter-wave radar.
Combined with the 4D millimeter-wave radar documents previously submitted by Tesla to the FCC, the market predicts that Tesla's new Model 3 may be equipped with 4D millimeter-wave radar as standard, and uses Arbe Robotics' Phoenix radar.
Compared with 3D millimeter-wave radar, 4D millimeter-wave radar adds height ranging, which can realize the camera "imaging" function to a certain extent, detect the distance, speed and pitch angle information of the target, and further enhance the space perception ability.
Tesla canceled the millimeter-wave radar on the Model 3 and Model Y models as early as 2021. The reason behind Tesla’s rapid reversal of operations may be that the FSD performance after the cancellation of the radar is not ideal.
