According to foreign media Auto Futures, Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX will be officially released on January 3, 2022. According to previous information, the new car will have both long battery life and high power. Its full battery life will allow the car to drive from Beijing to Shanghai.
Mercedes officially stated that the car will have a range of more than 750 miles (approximately 1200km) (working conditions are unknown). The person in charge Markus Schafer said that Mercedes-Benz will set up a team of engineers to manufacture the world's longest and most efficient electric car. With the help of advanced aerodynamic design, energy consumption may be reduced to about 9.65km/kWh.
Although this is a prototype car, we can still see Mercedes-Benz's future development ideas from it.
Tesla navigation update, new waypoints, support route selection
Tesla said today that Tesla software version 2021.40.6 has begun to be pushed. According to reports, in this version update, Tesla has added two new features for car navigation:
1. Add stopover points
Users can add stops in the route in order to plan the driving route and driving time more reasonably.
2. Multi-route navigation
After the user selects the destination, the car navigation will provide the user with up to 3 routes, and the fastest route will be the default navigation route. The user can choose other routes in the P position according to actual needs.
A little bit "advanced".
2022 Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG launched, up to 415 horsepower
Today, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG is officially on the market, priced at RMB 395,700 to RMB 549,900, with a total of three models.
Compared with the old model, the new car has undergone some adjustments in appearance. The new equipment includes night appearance components, front apron and front fixed wind wing, and wing panel trim. In terms of configuration, mobile phone wireless charging and MBUX intelligent human-computer interaction system real-world navigation and other configurations can also be optional.
There is no change in power. All three cars are equipped with 2.0T engines, but there are differences in data:
- AMG A35 4MATIC: 301 horsepower, 400Nm
- AMG A45 4MATIC: 382 horsepower, 480Nm
- AMG A45 S 4MATIC: 415 horsepower, 500Nm
"The strongest 2.0T on the surface", the wife is too expensive, but the back row is also quite large, and the bosses can use this reason to convince their wives.
Tesla's Shanghai Super Factory expanded again, with a total investment of 1.2 billion yuan
On November 26, the environmental information disclosure platform of Shanghai enterprises and public institutions showed that Tesla made an EIA public announcement on the second-stage production line optimization project of the first-stage project of the Shanghai Super Factory.
It is understood that the total investment of the production line optimization project is as high as 1.2 billion yuan, and it is expected to start construction in December this year and complete it in April next year.
Tesla Shanghai Super Factory is located in Shanghai Lingang Heavy Equipment Industrial Zone, with a scale of more than 1,200 acres (more than 860,000 square meters). In 2021, the total annual production capacity is expected to be 450,000 vehicles.
Tesla stated in the EIA report that the production line optimization project is mainly the expansion of the stamping workshop, the body workshop, the painting workshop, the assembly workshop and the logistics operation center.
Tesla said that the project will increase production capacity by increasing working hours, increasing the number of employees, and increasing the frequency of material turnover, but the EIA report did not disclose the increase in production capacity.
After the expansion, the models produced by the Shanghai plant will not change, and they will still be Model 3 and Model Y.
NIO yesterday announced the signing of a strategic cooperation agreement with Shell Group. The two sides will carry out cooperation in the field of electric vehicle energy on a global scale.
According to the agreement, NIO and Shell will jointly promote the construction and operation of charging and replacement facilities. In terms of power station swaps, in China, the two parties will build 100 swap stations by 2025; in Europe, the two parties plan to start the construction and operation of swap stations in 2022. In terms of charging facilities, Shell's European charging network will be open to NIO users.
At the same time, the two parties are discussing battery asset company cooperation, fleet management, membership system, home charging pile services, advanced technology development of power-up equipment, and cooperation in the construction of charging facilities in China. (New trip)
Compared with the battery swap mode, Dong Chejun still supports charging, and the latter will be more applicable.
Japan’s Kyodo News today reported that Honda recently released a new assisted driving technology that uses artificial intelligence to inform drivers of hazard information in advance.
According to the report, the technology is the world's first, and it is planned to be put into practical use in the second half of the 1920s. Honda has set a goal of zeroing the dead in traffic accidents caused by the company's four-wheelers and two-wheelers in 2050, and intends to use technology to minimize human errors.
It is understood that the principle of this technology is to detect changes in the driver's line of sight through the surveillance camera, and AI will determine whether the driver recognizes the risks outside the vehicle such as pedestrians. The direction of the pedestrian is notified by the lighting of the device light in front of the driver's seat. If the AI determines that the driver has not noticed the pedestrian, the seat belt will be tightened automatically. When it is found that the driver is not paying attention to the vehicle behind, the speaker in the driver's seat will also emit a warning tone.
Honda has also made a wristband that can detect the driver's heart rate to determine the driver's physical condition.
Binotto believes that the reason for the improvement comes from within the team, not from the car
In the recent F1 Grand Prix, the Ferrari team has achieved relatively good results, which is not good news for McLaren, who is also competing for third place in the year.
Mattia Binotto, the head of the Ferrari team, said that they did not make any compromises on the development of the car in 2022 because they are vying for the third place of the year. He previously stated that Ferrari has frozen the development of current cars and will focus on next year's cars.
In addition to the introduction of some upgrade kits at the beginning of the season and subsequent engine upgrades, Binotto said that they have not made any real upgrades to the current car. If Ferrari can win the third place in the constructors’ championship this season, it will be due to the team’s progress, not the upgrade of the car.
Well, fast forward to 2022, Ferrari becomes the undefeated division and dominates the entire season. (Manual dog head)
Today's topic: Do you like "little eyes"?
Motor 1 recently exposed the rendering of a new generation of BMW 7 Series, which triggered discussions among many netizens.
It can be seen that BMW has adopted a brand-new split LED headlight unit with a slender “small eye”.
That's right, the most people complain about this headlight, but now more and more car companies adopt similar designs, such as Weilai, Avita and so on.
Do you like such "little eyes"?
