Energy companies tally winter range loss figures for popular cars

A study by energy company Recurrent collected real- world cold weather and winter driving data from 7,000 electric vehicles. Including all Tesla series, Nissan Leaf, Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4 and other models.

The chart shows the mileage loss data, while the above temperature data is in Fahrenheit, where 70 degrees Fahrenheit is almost equal to 21 degrees Celsius.

Didn't you guess it? The best performer wasn't Tesla.

Tesla job ad almost ruins Semi

According to insideevs reports , Tesla posted a video on LinkedIn showing the Tesla Semi being tested for durability and reliability to attract candidates to its vehicle testing team.

The video describes "Our engineers tested the Semi in a variety of harsh conditions to maximize reliability and durability."

The Tesla Semi debuted five years ago and was supposed to go into production three years ago, but the first cars were only recently delivered to PepsiCo.

Tesla Semi Dong Chejun is not very interested, but I am more curious when the Cybertruck, which has been delayed many times, will be delivered?

Wei Lai's replacement ES8 is now the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, released on December 24

On the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, there has been a real car picture of NIO's replacement ES8, which is the first step in the full transition of the 866 model to the NT2.0 platform. From the appearance point of view, the updated ES8 incorporates some elements of the previous model and the current NT2.0 platform model. It has a family-style X-Bar front face. The most obvious changes are the addition of lidar and the horns of high-definition cameras on both sides.

In terms of size, it is 5099x1989x1750mm, and the wheelbase is 3070 mm. Compared with the previous model, the length and wheelbase of the car have increased, but the seven-seater version has been canceled and only the six-seater version has been retained. The battery is available in two versions of 75kW and 100kw, but the supplier is different from the previous model, and has two combinations of Ningde era and Zhongxinhang.

ES8 is the first model released by Weilai in 2018. It played an important role in elevating the Weilai brand in the early days, and also accumulated the most original loyal fans of Weilai. Recently, Auto Market Story quoted Weilai insiders as saying, After that, Weilai also has a model that is positioned to compare with the Maybach S-Class.

It is undeniable that Weilai is one of the few Chinese auto brands that have successfully established a high-end label, which is rare. However, many brands that claim to position themselves as luxury cars are just burning money, placing a large number of advertisements and hiring spokespersons at high prices, but the effect has not been burned.

Lantu debuted its first sedan, priced from RMB 322,900

On December 15, Lantu Chasing Light was officially unveiled, which is its first sedan. Among them, the standard version is equipped with an 82kW battery pack, and the pre-sale price is 322,900 yuan; the flagship version is equipped with an 82kW battery, and the pre-sale price is 352,900 yuan; the long-range flagship version is equipped with a 109 kW battery, and the pre-sale price is 432,900 yuan.

The body size is 5088x1970x1505mm, and the wheelbase is 3000mm. It adopts front double wishbone + rear five-link independent suspension, and is equipped with CDC electromagnetic suspension. The chasing light is equipped with a dual-motor four-wheel drive system. The peak power of the front motor is 160kW, and the peak power of the rear motor is 215kW. The official acceleration time from zero to 100 kilometers is 3.8s, and the braking distance is 33.83m.

In addition, Lantu Chasing Light is equipped with a self-developed high-speed autonomous pilot driving system, which can realize point-to-point intelligent assisted driving on expressways and urban expressway scenes, and is equipped with AR-HUD as standard.

At this price, do you like NIO ET5 or Lantu chasing light?

New Buick LaCrosse unveiled with unique appearance

The new LaCrosse appeared in the model catalog of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the photos show that the appearance of the new car has changed a lot compared to the current model. The slender headlights are similar to the electric cars of many new forces recently, and the wide air intake grille reminds me of the shape of the Asia Dragon.

The body size is 4996x1866x1472mm, and the wheelbase is 2905mm. It is a standard medium and large car, but its length is shorter than that of the current 5026mm body. The data shows that the new car is equipped with a 2.0T turbocharged engine with a peak power of 169kw and a fuel consumption of 6.59L under WLTC conditions.

People who buy this car should compare BYD Han, right? The latter is becoming a hit in its class, and the appearance of the new LaCrosse is becoming a hot topic.

Domestic Mazda CX-50 released, 2.5T power has not been introduced

On December 15, Changan Mazda officially released the CX-50, a compact SUV based on a front-drive transverse platform.

The CX-50 has a family-style front face, the shape of the headlights is more slender than that of the previous generation, and the side shape is full. The body size is 4785/1920/1638mm, and the wheelbase is 2815mm. According to official information, the rear space of domestic models has increased by 55mm.

It is worth mentioning that the instrument panel uses a liquid crystal + mechanical combination, rather than the full LCD instrument panel that is becoming more and more popular at present. I don't know whether users will pay for Mazda's "stubbornness". In addition, this time the CX-50 also has a panoramic sunroof, which is relatively rare in previous models.

In terms of power combination, 2.0L and 2.5L versions were launched in the early stage, with 6AT gearbox, and the 2.5L engine integrates intelligent variable cylinder technology, and the gasoline-electric hybrid version will be introduced later, but the 2.5T of overseas models has not been introduced.

From this point of view, Mazda is changing, but still "stubborn".

2023 Toyota Prius overseas pricing announced

According to motor1 , after the Los Angeles Auto Show last month, the price of the 2023 Prius was finally announced. Among them, the LE model is about RMB 191,000, the four-wheel drive version is about RMB 201,000, and the XLE model is about RMB 215,000. RMB 225,000.

The 2023 Prius comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, which supports Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full Speed ​​Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Tracing Assist, Road Sign Assist, Automatic High Beams and Active Driving auxiliary. I believe that these functions will be carried by the next generation of domestically produced Camry.

At present, Prius has stopped selling in China for a period of time. In the early days, it was one of the few hybrid models in China, but its price is almost twice that of models of the same level. At present, the share of Japanese cars is occupied by domestic brands, and it is believed that Prius will not be introduced into domestic sales.

But from a product point of view, this car still has many designs that are worth learning from many domestic hybrid models.

Renewal BMW X1 declared, wheelbase lengthened again

Recently, a new generation of China-made BMW X1 has been declared by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The data shows that there are two versions of 1.5T and 2.0T, corresponding to the 20Li model and 25Li model, and the maximum power is 115kW and 150kW respectively, which is improved compared with the previous generation.

In addition, the biggest advantage of the domestic BMW X1 "space" is further enlarged on the new generation of models. The size of the new car is 4616x1845x1641mm, and the wheelbase is 2802mm, which is 22mm longer than the previous model.

For a long time, since the wheelbase of the domestic version of the BMW X1 has been lengthened, the space has never disappointed, but the handling experience lacks some BMW flavor.

Mercedes-Benz to spend huge sums to bid farewell to the internal combustion engine by 2030

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a plan of more than 1 billion euros to overhaul its global production network for electric powertrains, including battery assembly, electric drives and axles, starting in 2024.

According to the data, Mercedes-Benz assembles batteries in Kamenz, Untertuerkheim and Beijing factories in Germany, which will be used in the upcoming MMA and MB.EA platform models. Plants in Untertuerkheim, Germany, Beijing, and Sebes, Romania, will also produce electric drive systems, while Mercedes-Benz's Hamburg, Germany, Untertuerkheim plants are the main plants for assembling electric axles and components.

The above-mentioned plans are all efforts to realize the full electrification of Mercedes-Benz in 2030. By 2030, buying a Mercedes-Benz electric car should not be laughed at by new power car owners, right?

New on Tesla’s online store, wine glasses sell for 490 yuan

Tesla’s official Weibo shows that the online store is new, including Tesla tasting glasses, Model Y HEPA (activated carbon) filter, Model Y HEPA (high-efficiency molecular air) filter, the prices are 490 yuan, 198 yuan, and 398 yuan, respectively. The sale will start at 10 am on December 15th.

If the filter element is still more practical, then the price of this cup seems to be more expensive. At present, many car companies are making life peripherals, and the more famous one is NIO Life. Welcome to share in the comment area which car companies’ non-auto peripherals you have bought, and have you ever done anything wrong?

Dong Chejun prefers the classic car models sold by car companies , but he is not interested in others.
