NIO teases new model with electric spoiler
On the 22nd, Weilai said that there will be new models unveiled at NIO Day 2022.
According to the preview video, NIO's new model will be equipped with an electric rear spoiler. According to previous reports, this NIO Day will release two new models, one of which is the ES8 remodeled model on the NT2.0 platform, and a brand new model will also be released.
It is estimated that this is the EC7.
In addition, the new generation of ES8 has already landed in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the delivery speed this time is worth looking forward to.
Zhiji LS7 starts pre-sale, starting at 350,000 yuan
Recently, the Zhiji LS7, the second model of the Zhiji brand, started pre-sales. In the picture, the medium and large SUV with relatively round lines has a pre-sale price of 350,000 to 500,000 yuan.
Different from Zhiji L7, the front face of LS7 is much gentler, and the side lines are also smooth. The smart lines make it not like an SUV with a length of more than 5 meters and a wheelbase of more than 3 meters.
The ingenuity of Zhiji LS7 lies in the seats. The rear right seat of Zhiji LS7 supports electric adjustment and can be largely folded down. The co-pilot seat can be completely stored under the glove box.
The new car adopts the first "YAT cruise-type half-width steering wheel" officially mass-produced in China. Zhiji CEO Liu Tao said that with the liftable central control screen, the driver can get an excellent view.
By the way, the front block is also a bit interesting, the whole is similar to Model X.
Meizu will build 1,000 stores, or introduce car sales
On December 23, Meizu held the "Meizu Conference 2022" in Zhuhai, showing the brand development plan, Meizu M3 Pro player and Meizu 20 new product information.
The conference revealed that in the future, Meizu’s full-scene stores will aim to build 1,000 stores, so that more users can experience Meizu’s products and services offline. The store in the poster is suspected to have a covered new car, which means that the Meizu store may introduce cars.
Some time ago, Zhang Zhen, general manager of Meizu’s sales department, showed a PPT speech on Weibo, which showed Meizu’s product plan for the next three years, including the automotive sector.
Wenjie has achieved sales growth through Huawei's offline channels, but what will happen to Geely's new cars when it encounters Meizu channels?
It is rumored that TSMC has won a large order for Tesla's advanced chips
On December 22, it was reported that TSMC had won a large order for Tesla's advanced chips, and Tesla became the top three customers of the new U.S. factory. As a result, TSMC's market value returned to the NT$12 trillion mark.

Tesla offers 30-day EAP free trial to global car owners
As Christmas approaches, Tesla will provide global car owners with a 30-day EAP trial one after another.
Tesla Autopilot is divided into basic version (BAP) and enhanced version (EAP), the former is the standard configuration of Tesla cars, and the domestic price of the latter is 32,000 yuan. These include:
- Navigate on Autopilot: automatically drive on and off high-speed ramps, passing slow-moving vehicles;
- Auto lane change: changing lanes on the highway;
- Smart call: The owner can drive the vehicle out of the parking space through the mobile app;
- Automatic parking.
In my impression, there is such a month every year.
According to Electrek, Tesla confirmed that they will allow third-party charging piles into its navigation system, but the specifications of these charging piles need to meet their high standards.
Currently, users only see Tesla's charging piles in the navigation system inside the Tesla car. In most cases this is not a problem because Tesla's Superchargers are plentiful and of high quality.
But third-party charging stations have also improved recently, with a marked increase in numbers, especially in Europe.
Tesla stated that third-party charging stations need to meet the following three conditions within 60 days to be able to enter Tesla vehicles:
- Have at least one Tesla-compatible charging cable
- At least one Tesla vehicle is charged every four days
- Average charging with a charging success rate of 90% or higher
These stations will be deleted by the navigation system if no vehicle calls are detected within 14 days, or if the average charging success rate is below 70%.
The program will be launched from Europe and Israel, and may follow in North America.

Tesla made an "AirPower"?
According to Fenghuang.com technology news, Tesla recently launched a wireless charging board. It is reported that the wireless charging platform can provide 15W fast charging power for each device, and can charge up to three devices at the same time.
The concept is somewhat similar to the AirPower that Apple wants to produce, as the three devices can be placed anywhere on a Tesla charging mat, and each can receive up to 15W of power.
Apple released AirPower in September 2017, but thermal management and interference issues prevented the product from landing, so the product was confirmed canceled in 2019.
The wireless charger launched by Tesla this time is designed to consist of an aluminum casing, an Alcantara surface, and a detachable magnetic stand. A mobile phone or earbuds placed anywhere on its surface can be charged without precise alignment.
Tesla's wireless charger is priced at $300 (about 2095 yuan), and the delivery time is February 2023.
