MINI Concept Aceman global concept car released

MINI's new pure electric urban crossover concept car is here, which is the first pure electric crossover model launched by MINI in the luxury compact field.

The concept car is called MINI Concept Aceman. Light green LED light sources are integrated around the closed octagonal grille. The appearance retains many classic elements of MINI, such as the "four-wheeled and four-cornered" body proportions, and the rice flag.

In terms of interior, the new car completely abandons the mainstream elements such as leather, slush plastic material and chrome plating, and uses a large number of knitted fabrics – velvet, waffle, jersey, houndstooth texture. In the cockpit, only the square disc, the circular OLED center control screen and the paddles remain.

Good-looking is good-looking, but this inexplicable storage compartment in the middle of the back row… Maybe I can only sit cross-legged.

The ideal pure electric platform new car spy photos exposed, the size is larger than the L9

Recently, some netizens exposed Li Auto's first pure electric model. The blogger revealed that its codename is W01. It is an MPV larger than the L9 and will be delivered in the second half of 2023.

According to another blogger, the W01 has a super-tilted front windshield (Dong Chejun guesses that the view is better), the body length is 5.2 to 5.3 meters, and it is equipped with a Ningde era Kirin battery pack. (IT House)

Dong Chejun is not surprised that Ideal wants to launch an MPV. After all, the brand concept of Ideal Car is to "create a mobile home and create a happy home". However, when will the L8, which I am looking forward to more, be officially announced?

Wuling launches mobile nucleic acid sampling vehicle

This is a rather special new car.

Since the beginning of this year, with the repeated outbreak of COVID-19, domestic nucleic acid testing has become normalized. In order to meet the daily testing needs, Wuling Motors has launched a nucleic acid sampling vehicle.

There are two- and four-seat versions of the Wuling nucleic acid sampling vehicle, equipped with an expandable sampling window.

Wuling officials said that the vehicle is aimed at the nucleic acid testing needs of special groups such as students and the elderly, as well as testing locations such as townships and rural areas.

The first batch of Wuling nucleic acid sampling vehicles will arrive in Shanghai in August to support the adoption of Shanghai Jiaotong University and its affiliated hospitals.

Wuling builds what the people need.

Czech Republic converts seized Ferrari into police car

The Guardian reported on the 25th that Czech police recently turned a 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia seized from criminals into a police car, and Czech police even filmed a promotional video for the Ferrari police car.

Police said the Ferrari police car could reach a top speed of 321km/h, and it cost more than CZK 300,000 (about 84,000 yuan) to convert it to a police car. This police car will be assigned to a special department and can only be driven by trained police officers.

Zli, the head of the Czech police's traffic department, said the car would be used against some of the "most aggressive" criminals.

Czech police say the Ferrari is not the most expensive sports car they have seized. Czech police seized 900 cars last year, the vast majority of which were resold, with the proceeds used to cover losses caused by offenders.

We keep some as business vehicles, but not luxury cars like Ferraris.

Reminds me of a movie starring Shawn Yue, "The Rider", I've seen it and raised my paw~

Q2 GM's self-driving division loses 3.3 billion, and may be profitable in 2030

According to the news released by GM, the loss of Cruise's autonomous driving department in the Q2 quarter was US$500 million (about 3.3 billion yuan), which is equivalent to a loss of 33 million yuan per day, and it has lost US$900 million in the first half of this year.

However, GM CEO Mary Barra said that the increase in losses was due to the increase in employee salaries, which led to rising costs, but still optimistic about Cruise, believing that by 2030, the Cruise department can make a profit of 50 billion US dollars through autonomous driving technology and services.

Autonomous driving does burn money, and the update and iteration are very fast, and there are not many car companies that can burn real influence. Although Tesla FSD is still the recognized leader, there are still factors of change in the market structure.

Small eyes, not suitable for assisted driving?

Dong Chejun woke up this morning, picked up his phone, and saw someone sent this conversation:

I took a closer look, isn't this Teacher Changyan, and suddenly woke up laughing.

Both Xiaopeng and Weilai said that they will immediately optimize this problem. After all, Teacher Chang is not the only one with small eyes.

Chang Yan said that when he tested the GM Super Cruise in 2018, he encountered a similar situation, whether it was infrared or camera.

And this problem has not been solved so far, including Xiaopeng, Lantu, and Weilai.

If Xiaopeng and Weilai can solve the problem of misjudgment this time, the sacrifice made by Teacher Chang Yan will not be wasted. (manual dog head)

Do you have any friends with small eyes who have encountered the same situation?

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
