Ford F-150 Lightning battery information exposed

Recently, Ford revealed the battery information of the F-150 Lightning in a live broadcast.

The new car has two capacity battery packs of 98kWh and 131kWh, providing 370km and 483km of cruising range respectively.

In terms of power, the F-150 Lightning will be equipped with a dual-motor system with a maximum power of 570 horsepower, a peak torque of 1024N·m, a maximum load of 907kg, and a maximum drag capacity of 4536kg.

In winter in the United States, the temperature in most areas is still very low. By then, can electric pickups be able to sell goods well? This problem has yet to be verified by time.

Priced at US$110,000 overseas, the electric Hummer was officially delivered

According to electrek, GM's brand GMC has officially started the delivery of the Hummer EV. The first batch of models delivered is the first edition of the First Edition, with a suggested price of 110,295 US dollars (702,000 yuan).

Hummer EV will be driven by up to three electric motors, with a maximum power of more than 1,000 horsepower and a maximum torque of 15,592 N·m. The car can accelerate from a standstill to 96km/h in 3 seconds.

It will match GM's latest Ultium battery pack, with a capacity between 50-200kWh and a fast charging pile with a power of 350kW. Some models have a cruising range of about 640km.

The configuration is very high, the data is scary, and of course the price is also very beautiful.

Renault Megane E-Tech Electric announces overseas prices

Renault recently officially announced the price of Megane E-Tech Electric in France: .52-5.14 million euros (approximately 2.52-36.8 million yuan).

The new car adopts Renault's new flat logo, and the penetrating chrome strip extends to the headlights on both sides, and then descends to the front surround, fully implementing the novel and romantic design language of French car companies.

Coming to the side of the body, the design of the crossover model of the car is highlighted at this time. The compact body with large 20-inch wheels creates a strong sense of movement.

And its power does not seem to be the focus of Renault's attention. The basic model will be equipped with a motor with a maximum power of 96 kW, and the maximum power of the high-end models will be increased to 160 kW. (New trip)

I wonder if there will be an RS version?

Audi R8 will launch the "ultimate model", or will cancel the four-wheel drive

Recently, Sebastian Grams, head of Audi's RS department, confirmed to Top Gear that Audi is developing a brand new R8 focusing on driving pleasure.

The new car will be a high-performance limited edition model, or it will be named R8 GT, becoming the last product of the series before it goes electrified.

Grams said in an interview that the Audi RS department also has some "secret technologies" that can increase the performance of this V10 engine to a new level. At the driving level, the new car will also provide drivers with more driving pleasure like other rear-wheel drive versions of R8.

When asked whether the new car is rear-wheel drive, Grams smiled and declined to comment.

Li Bin, the founder of Weilai: I don’t understand why I still bought a gasoline car

On December 18, NIO released the new sedan ET5 on NIO Day 2021, which attracted a lot of attention.

However, the popularity of ET5 did not last long before it was snatched away by a speech made by Weilai founder Li Bin.

At the NIO Day's media communication meeting, Li Bin said: "I simply don't understand. Why do people still buy petrol cars now? It is too nostalgic to buy petrol cars."

Although Li Bin's words are relatively subtle, he still reveals the meaning of "buy gasoline trucks are old antiques", which has caused dissatisfaction among many media and netizens.

In the past November, my country's narrow passenger vehicle sales reached 1.816 million, and new energy vehicles accounted for only 378,000, of which a considerable part of them were hybrid vehicles. This shows that the current use of electric vehicles is still relatively limited.

Although the strength of ET5 is indeed good, it is not advisable to "step on one hand in one".

BMW will trial operation of BMW i Experience Store in the city center

BMW recently announced that it will pilot a BMW i brand exclusive experience store in the city center. The first batch of experience stores will be the first to land in Shenzhen and Beijing next year.

The BMW i brand exclusive experience store will highlight sustainability and a sense of technology through environmentally friendly design and digital tools. For example, the modern shape of rough cutting, the luminous canopy that simulates the change of natural light, the "invisible technology" that comes on call, etc.

According to BMW, the floor of the store will use waste glass recovered from the Shenyang factory as aggregate, and the wall material will also be made of 100% biodegradable materials.

BMW said that in addition to exhibiting BMW i branded products, the BMW i exclusive experience store will rely on the dealer service system to provide customized test drive, sales and charging services.

At present, more than 500 of the nearly 600 BMW dealers nationwide have completed the BMW i business certification.

Audi's first charging center is about to start trial operation

Audi recently stated that its first electric vehicle charging center in Nuremberg, Germany will start trial operation on December 23.

During the trial operation, the service hours are from 10 am to 19:00 every day, and there will be an employee to try to meet the needs of customers. The charging facilities and lounge will be open 24 hours a day, and there are currently six sets of fast charging devices that can be reserved, with a maximum power of 320kW.

In addition, because the charging center uses a temporary energy storage solution of 2.45 MWh, the requirements for the grid are not high, and it can provide services for about 80 electric vehicles every day.

Obviously, this veteran car company is expanding its infrastructure to meet customer needs, especially those car owners who cannot install home charging stations.

More functions, the Tesla App gets updated

Recently, the Tesla App has been updated again. The current version is 4.4.0. The main upgrade contents are as follows:

  • Map filter: Add "View nearby super charging stations", you can see the total number of nearby charging stations, the number of empty piles and distance, and you can also filter service centers, experience stores and other locations;

  • Added switch between remaining power display and charging count: Click the remaining power next to the battery icon to display the mileage. At the same time, during or after charging, you can check the charged capacity of the vehicle;
  • Added reminder for next charge: If you set "Timed charge" or "Start on time" and connect to a home charging station, the next charge plan will be displayed below the charge limit.
  • Added Powerwall function: Support reconnecting disconnected Powerwall to Wi-Fi.

  • Newly added Tesla Insurance Management: Customers who have subscribed to Tesla Insurance (Tesla self-operated auto insurance) can manage and initiate insurance claims on their mobile phones.

Hydrogenation takes only three minutes, and Peugeot's first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle rolls off the assembly line

Peugeot officially announced that its first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the Peugeot e-Expert Hydrogen, has officially rolled off the assembly line.

The appearance of the new car is consistent with that of Peugeot Expert's fuel version. It will be equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell power system and is expected to be delivered before the end of this year. The first commercial user is watera, a subsidiary of Michelin.

The Peugeot e-Expert Hydrogen has two body sizes, standard and extended, with a maximum load capacity of 6.1 cubic meters, a payload of 1100kg, and a maximum traction force of 1000kg.

The most important thing is that Peugeot claims that it only takes 3 minutes to refuel the new car, WLTP will have a cruising range of more than 400 kilometers, and its battery capacity is 10.5kWh.

This is the latest development of Stellatis Group in the field of new energy.

Porsche LMDh race car is about to start testing

Thomas Laudenbach, the head of Porsche Motorsport, said that the LMDh group car developed in cooperation with Multimatic will undergo intensive testing from January 2022 to make the most adequate preparations for the first show in 2023. .

In addition, Porsche also announced that Dane Cameron and former F1 driver Felipe Nasr (Felipe Nasr) will become its factory team drivers. The two drivers will participate in the test and development of the LMDh group of cars with Porsche. .

Among them, Philip Nassar can be described as ups and downs in recent years. In 2015, he entered F1 with a sponsorship. After a blockbuster, he fell silent for a long time. After winning the first year of IMSA, he fell into a trough. FE also ran into a mess, and now he is a Porsche factory driver.​​​

AMG EQS: The three-ton body can also have driving pleasure

Curious about how the electrified AMG is opened? Let's take a look at Motortrend's test drive experience first.

Motortrend editor Angus MacKenzie believes that Mercedes-AMG EQS 4Matic+ is much better to drive than EQS.

First of all, in the comfort mode, the suspension did not bring excess vibration. When you switch to Sport or Sport+ mode, the suspension will become significantly harder. Although the roll in corners is better controlled, Angus recommends using the custom mode-except for the suspension, everything is switched to a sporty state.

In the sports mode, the acceleration response becomes faster, but it always maintains a predictable and perfect linearity.

In a rare haze, Angus drove into the San Jacinto Mountains. The AMG's grip on wet roads left a deep impression on him.

He said that this nearly three-ton car can provide great driving pleasure: Although the steering system itself has almost no road feel, it has excellent directivity and the acceleration capability of the dual motors is equally exciting.
