Tesla Cybertruck body found at Texas factory

Recently, someone took a photo of the electric pickup Cybertruck at Tesla's Texas super factory.

From the picture, Cybertruck's body consists of two parts – large die-casting parts and ordinary steel.

It’s worth noting that the large die-cast on the Cybertruck is Tesla’s largest monolithic die-cast to date, larger than the Model Y’s unibody rear floor.

On the other hand, a patent from Tesla last year showed that they may open up the second row and tail compartment of Cybertruck to expand the cargo space.

But this spy photo confirmed that Cybertruck did not adopt such a design.

Li Bin: Two new cars will be released on NIO Day 2022

At the NIO Day ticket drawing experience salon, Weilai CEO Li Bin revealed that two new cars will be released on NIO Day 2022 on December 24.

The industry speculates that the two new cars may be the EC7 and the new ES8.

In addition, Weilai will release three new models next year, and hold a special press conference for Weilai mobile phones in the first half of the year. The company's 150kWh semi-solid battery is expected to be launched around the second quarter of next year.

Is it possible that it will be the recently exposed ET5 safari version?

Lantu Light Chasing Appearance Design Details Exposure

In 3 days, Lantu's first car will arrive.

Lantu Automobile announced that its first sedan Lantu Chasing Light will be released on December 15. At the same time, Lantu also announced some design details.

Lantu follow-up light inherits the penetrating headlights of the i-Land concept car Kunpeng. Like the Lantu Dreamer, it has a penetrating daytime running light and a luminous Logo, while retaining the Akabane taillights on the back of the i-Land concept car.

From the declaration information of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, it can be seen that the length, width and height of Lantu chasing light are 5088/1970/1515 (1505) mm, and the wheelbase is 3000 mm. It uses a ternary lithium-ion battery and a dual motor system to drive the peak power of the motor. 160kW and 215kW respectively.

Are you satisfied with the appearance?

Musk 'rebuilt' Twitter with Tesla employees

According to CNBC, Musk has authorized at least 17 executives from Tesla, SpaceX and The Boring Company to work on Twitter. Insiders said the SpaceX chief financial officer and Tesla's chief information officer were also among them.

Tesla shareholders remain concerned that Musk's acquisition of Twitter will affect the automaker's growth. Tesla's stock price has fallen about 25 percent since Musk took over Twitter.

In November, a lawyer asked Musk a sharp question in court:

Maybe it's not a good idea to use the resources of a public company for your private company?

In Musk’s testimony, Tesla employees working for him at Twitter headquarters “was just a voluntary thing.” He also said:

It's kind of like after hours, if you'd be interested in helping me evaluate the Twitter file, that would be great.

A Tesla employee said in an interview that most Tesla employees feel that if they refuse Musk's direct request, they will likely face poor performance evaluation or other consequences in the future.

Weilai's 300,000th mass-produced car rolled off the production line, which lasted 4 years and 7 months

NIO announced on the 12th that NIO's 300,000th mass-produced vehicle rolled off the production line at NIO's second advanced manufacturing base. Calculated at the current speed, Weilai's goal of 500,000 units may be achieved next year.

From May 2018 to December 2022, Weilai achieved the goal of 300,000 units, which took 4 years and 7 months. Among them, it took only more than 7 months for the third 100,000 units to go offline.

Deliveries of models such as the ET7, ES7 and ET5 all increased thanks to faster roll-offs.

In November this year, Weilai delivered a total of 14,178 units, a year-on-year increase of 30%, and a month-on-month increase of 40.9%, setting a new monthly delivery high.

New energy vehicles have completed the 25% market share target ahead of schedule

According to the latest data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the domestic new energy vehicle market share reached 33.8% from January to November this year, completing the target of 25% ahead of schedule.

Chen Shihua, deputy secretary-general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, said that the halving policy of passenger car purchase tax has played a significant role in stabilizing the growth of the domestic auto market. Expropriated and withdrawn in 2025.

Tesla will launch a version update on Christmas, some features will be exposed

Every Christmas, Tesla will launch a relatively large version update, and the previously mentioned Apple Music and Zoom may be launched in some countries.

Tesla Korea recently shared some update details of the upcoming 2022.44.25 version, let's take a look.

automatic turn signal

When changing lanes, overtaking, or completing a turn, the turn signal will automatically turn off. Currently, the driver is required to manually turn off the turn signal if the steering wheel returns too little.

in-car camera

▲The camera is above the central rearview mirror

At the numerous requests of many car owners, Tesla activated the camera in the car. When the owner turns on the dog mode or sentry mode, he can check the pets inside the car from a distance.

multimedia control

The new car machine has added customizable multimedia controls, which the driver can move to the desired position for easier operation. At the same time, swiping up can also access favorites, recently played and so on.

In addition, an old function has successfully returned-swipe left and right to view the odometer and tire pressure.

navigation improvements

Tesla has improved the readability of the navigation. The new navigation will visually emphasize the next driving direction. The next turn and lane guidance will remain at the top of the screen, and information such as estimated time and cost will be moved to the bottom.

fan control

After the update, the system allows car owners to manually adjust the wind speed of the air conditioner without exiting the automatic mode when the air conditioner is set to "automatic".

fart mode

This, in simple terms, is to "fart" passers-by through the stereo outside the car.

In addition, the easter egg of Rainbow Road can be set to "always open when Autopilot is activated"; when the mobile phone connected to the car has a call, the car will ask the driver if he wants to transfer to the vehicle, in case the driver does not want the passengers to listen to the content of the call.

By the way, the light show that was added at the beginning of this year can now be timed, and can be set up to 10 minutes in advance, so that multiple Tesla cars can turn on the light show at the same time.

Hyundai's car has a big brain hole, and the door handle can also be controlled by gestures

Hyundai recently demonstrated a new idea for gesture-controlled door handles based on Somalytics' SomaCap sensor in its open innovation hall.

SomaCap is a new type of capacitive sensor made of carbon nanotube-infused paper that can detect the presence of a palm within a range of 20 cm, enabling gesture-controlled door opening.

However, Hyundai has not explained in detail the details of opening the door through the air, including how the system judges the correct timing to open the door.

BMW's new patent published: using the suspension to charge the battery

According to information released by the German Patent Office, BMW has applied for a patent for a new suspension system that can recover energy from road bumps and recharge the batteries of electric vehicles.

During the up and down movement of the BWM generator suspension, it can provide rotational kinetic energy to the internal flywheel of the generator. With the repetition of the stroke, the generator speed gradually accelerates and generates electricity. In other words, the vehicle can be charged when it is driving on a bumpy or potholed road.

According to CarBuz, this new patent should appear on BMW's flagship model in the future. After all, the technology doesn't look cheap.

Model S Plaid breaks track record again

An Unplugged Performance modified Tesla Model S Plaid set a new lap record at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, California.

And, the Unplugged Plaid not only became the fastest electric car in Willow Springs, it easily beat the previous track record of 1:16.45 set by a modified Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport with a time of 1:13.51 .

Modifications to the Unplugged Plaid included new suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and various over-the-top aero kits. In terms of cost, the suspension alone costs about $15,000, and the total modification cost is estimated to reach $100,000.

Car radios may be abandoned, raising concerns among broadcasters

The New York Times recently published an article saying that with the popularity of electric vehicles, AM radio will be eliminated.

Automakers say battery interference can make AM transmissions static and noisy, annoying to listeners. As a result, more and more EVs are ditching AM radios.

BMW, for example, made it clear in a statement, "In order to avoid customer dissatisfaction due to poor reception and noise, we have decided to remove it from vehicles equipped with eDrive technology."

Additionally, Tesla, Audi, Porsche, and Volvo have all removed AM radios from their electric products.

But now some people have raised objections to this, thinking that it is inappropriate to do so.

In a letter to 20 automakers published Dec. 1, Sen. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., asked automakers to keep AM radios in electric vehicles, describing it as a public safety issue.

The letter noted that AM/FM radio remains the most reliable, free, and convenient communication mechanism for public officials to communicate with the public during an emergency.

Therefore, any phasing out of broadcast AM radio could cause serious communication problems in emergency situations.

AM signals travel farther than FM stations, reach more people, and are less expensive to operate.

By the way, how long has it been since you guys listened to the radio?

The author is a little busy, so I will write an introduction later.
