Regardless of the brand or the pricing, this is a niche car, but it will still leave a mark on the hearts of many people.
According to Carscoops reports, BMW is currently actively preparing to release a new generation of 2 Series Active Tourer models.
This German MPV was recently exposed in the Nürburgring, Germany, and it is in the final stage of development.
On the whole, the second-generation 2 Series Active Tourer retains the typical MPV profile of the previous model, and adds modern elements to the design style, which also tends to be more sporty.
According to the spy photos exposed earlier, the car's interior instrumentation also ushered in a large-scale redesign.
The car will be based on an upgraded version of the UKL platform, and the next generation X1 and X2 will also come from this platform.
I don't know if the sales volume will follow up after the space comes up.
Yesterday during the day, 500 owners of Weilai Automobile issued a joint statement on the understanding of the NOP/NP system to support Weilai Automobile:
We are fully aware that the current NPP-assisted driving system of NIO is not an automatic driving system or an unmanned driving system; NIO's introduction and publicity of NP/NOP did not confuse or mislead us.
In response to this statement, some Weilai car owners initiated the topic on the Weilai app, and has received support from more than 3,000 users.
Some car owners said that they did not want to be represented, and strongly demanded that NIO recall, install lidar, and upgrade the full module of assisted driving.
There are also car owners who bluntly said that the initial joint statement of 500 car owners was simply to add chaos to Wei Lai and shame all car owners.
Don't elevate the brand to faith…except Sony (whispered).
The battery life of pure electric power is increased to 84km, and Lynk&Co’s 06 PHEV will be upgraded
Recently, Lynk&Co officially announced that the new Lynk&Co 06 PHEV will continue to use the hybrid system of the current model, but its pure electric cruising range will increase to 84km.
The car is positioned as an entry-level compact SUV, equipped with a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a 1.5T three-cylinder engine and electric motor, with a comprehensive power of up to 190kW.
Currently, the models on sale are equipped with a battery pack with a capacity of 11.3kWh and a pure electric cruising range of 55km. (Via EV knows)
Dong Chejun is more interested in that 06 Watch haha.
Weimar Shen Hui talked about autonomous driving marketing, but was "sold out" by his own advertisement
Recently, the NIO high-speed car accident has continued to arouse heated discussions among netizens.
A few days ago, Shen Hui, the co-founder of Weimar Motors, also expressed his views on Weilai’s accident:
I have used the assisted driving function of every competing model. Some are radical and some are conservative, but no one is capable of autopilot in all scenarios at this stage, including Weimar.
This shows that Weimar Motors also knows that no current model can achieve full-scene automatic driving.
But what's interesting is that you can see on Weimar's official website that the promotional copy of Weimar W6 is "the first unmanned mass-produced model in China."
In fact, car companies all understand the true level of L2 assisted driving, but they tend to exaggerate their "autonomous driving" capabilities during publicity. (Via Fast Technology)
Such an approach that is both right and upright will surely arouse consumer dissatisfaction.
Mercedes-EQ officially announced its withdrawal from Formula E
Mercedes-EQ officially announced that it will withdraw from FE Formula E after the end of the season.
The German manufacturer entered FE before the sixth season of 2019-2020 and won the team's double world championship title in the seventh season.
Mr. Alejandro Agag, founder and chairman of FE Formula E said:
We thank Mercedes for its support since joining. Automakers are facing the challenge of transitioning from EU and UK regulations to an all-electric future. FE Formula E provides an unparalleled technology and marketing platform that showcases the future of electric vehicles in iconic urban centers around the world. We look forward to working with partners, teams and manufacturers to develop FE Formula E and realize our commitment to the electric future.
Porsche: What about playing together? Why are you all gone.
Porsche will release a new electric concept car at the Munich Auto Show
Speaking of Porsche, Porsche officially released a preview of a new model yesterday, and said:
In the past 70 years, motorsports has been the most difficult part of engineering innovation when developing mass-produced cars. Porsche has followed this path for many years and will continue to do so. At the Munich Motor Show, Porsche is looking to the future-combining cutting-edge technology with stunning design.
Therefore, this may be a concept car geared towards motorsports.
Porsche said last year that its electric sports car will use an updated platform, separate from the new PPE electric architecture that supports the next generation of Macan.
Is this… the pure electric version 718?
Recently, foreign media reported that the 2022 Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain will be unveiled at this year's German auto show.
It is understood that the ground clearance of this Mercedes is 1.575 inches higher than that of the ordinary C-class.
In addition, it will be equipped with larger wheels, redesigned center nets and front surrounds, and wheel eyebrows that look more off-road.
Although the appearance is a lot rougher, the interior is still the same exquisite, matte diamond wire and silver chrome decoration are not lacking, of course, the suspension center control that supports MBUX is still there.
Under its hood, there is an M254 2.0T four-cylinder engine with a 48V light-mixing system. The parameters are temporarily unknown. (Via cnBeta)
Another happy dad car was born.
According to foreign media reports, BMW will showcase the hydrogen-powered version of the BMW iX5 during the "IAA Mobility 2021 Show" that opens next month.
This is the latest mass production result of the 2019 BMW i Hydrogen next concept car, with a unique front surround and blue paint.
In terms of power, the new car combines high-performance hydrogen fuel cells with BMW's fifth-generation eDrive to convert hydrogen into electricity to drive the vehicle.
The power system equipped with the car has a maximum output of 125kW in normal mode, and after the vehicle enters a more aggressive driving mode, it can provide a maximum of 275kW of output power.
BMW has not disclosed the cruising range of the car for the time being. It is expected that the car will be launched in the early version at the end of 2022 for demonstration and testing purposes. (Via electric state)
BMW said that if there is a complete infrastructure, hydrogen fuel vehicles will be more fun to control.
Since the Mazda RX-8 was discontinued in 2012, fans of the rotary engine have lost their "good hearts". Mazda also releases news of the "resurrection" of the rotor from time to time to tease the enthusiasm of car fans.
The most recent "official announcement" was in October last year when Mazda claimed that it would use the MX-30 to revive the rotor engine in 2022.
Recently, there is news that Mazda may consider the use of hydrogen energy + range extender to return the rotary engine.
A report by the Japanese media "BestCarWeb.jp" shows that Mazda's new rotary engine can use hydrogen fuel to operate normally and has good compatibility, which solves the high emissions and high energy consumption caused by insufficient combustion of the previous fuel rotary engine.
In fact, Mazda tried the rotor + hydrogen fuel combination on the RX-8 more than ten years ago, but the result was nothing. (Via electric state)
For the poor battery life of the pure electric version of the MX-30, the rotor range extender may be a good choice.
Just last week, Lego showed the results of their cooperation with Toyota-Toyota Supra Lego Edition
This special plan is to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the birth of Toyota's classic sports car GR Supra RZ. Its size is exactly the same as the new version of GR Supra RZ, and a total of 477.33 Lego parts were spent.
It is conceivable that this is a big project, the design time alone is as long as 3000 hours, and the assembly also took 2400 hours.
Unlike previous simple models of Lego Supercars, some of the key mechanical components of this Lego version of Supra have been integrated and retained.
It is driven by an electric motor and can drive at a maximum speed of 28 kilometers per hour.
However, for safety reasons, it can only go straight forward and back, not turning. (Via 3DMGame)
