InsideEVs reported yesterday that BMW has begun delivering their pure electric flagship SUV iX in Europe.
It is understood that the model delivered this time is the iX xDrive 40, priced at 77,300 euros (554,000 yuan), but this model is not listed in the country, domestic consumers can choose the xDrive 50 version priced at 846,900 yuan .
Pieter Nota, a BMW executive responsible for customers, branding and sales, said that BMW’s goal is to double the annual sales of electric vehicles in 2022. If everything goes according to plan, the BMW Group will deliver about 200 to customers by 2025. Ten thousand all-electric vehicles.
Starting next year, every BMW plant in Germany will produce pure electric models. In the future, BMW 7 series, 5 series, X1 and other models will launch pure electric versions.
CCTV Finance yesterday reported on the "core replacement" of Euler Automobiles. Many car owners questioned the fact that Euler Automobiles had false propaganda and misled consumers during sales.
For this, Dong Yudong, general manager of Euler Motors, expressed his deep apologies, "He promised to seriously investigate the ins and outs and properly handle related matters."
Earlier, some car owners reported that Euler Haomao claimed on its official website that its car system uses "Qualcomm 8-core professional car gauge chips", but the actual car uses a weaker Intel low-end processor.
However, Euler has not yet given a specific solution. When asked whether Euler Goodcat will still be equipped with Qualcomm chips, Dong Yudong said: "The intelligent service processing platform mentioned in Euler Goodcat’s parameter configuration table The Qualcomm chip is the chip used in the remote control module."
It is understood that the remote control module is a mobile data modem (MDM) device, which serves as a connection between the sensor terminal of the device and the information service center, and is not related to the "vehicle intelligent platform" promoted by Euler. (Quick Technology)
In other words, Euler’s response is tantamount to acknowledging the fact that Qualcomm's cockpit chips were not used.

To eliminate the risk of fire, researchers use water as an electrolyte to improve safety, and study electrode materials to ensure adequate performance levels. Moreover, after 2000 recharges of the new battery, its capacity has only dropped by less than 30%.
One of the research team members, Yokohama National University chemistry professor Naoaki Yabuuchi said: "The newly developed battery is safer and has a longer life. Although the voltage is slightly lower, it is expected to be put into practical use."

The research team hopes to commercialize this battery within three years.
Villeneuve: The race in Saudi Arabia is like an "entertainment go-kart"
Former F1 world champion and commentator Jacques Villeneuve raised some questions about the many events that occurred during the Saudi stand, including whether the F1 sport is becoming too "Hollywood".
This is not F1, this is an entertainment kart. Sometimes it is difficult to make neutral comments about what happened, and you will always be seen as speaking on one side.
In addition, he stated that "DRS" was part of the cause of the collision between Verstappen and Hamilton at the Jeddah circuit.

I just hope we have a clean game.
Electrification has become a major development trend in the automotive industry, and automakers are investing heavily in electric vehicles. But whether it is a new car maker or a traditional big factory, they are facing considerable cost pressure. Even Tesla, which is currently at the forefront in the field of electric vehicles, has been in the quagmire of continuous losses.
We are pushing this industry to its limits.
Carlos Taveres, CEO of Stellaantis, the world’s fourth-largest automaker, said in an interview with Reuters this month that the cost of transitioning to electric vehicles is beyond the current auto industry’s ability to afford. The limit.
He believes that too fast to promote the electrification of the automotive industry will result in a 50% increase in the cost of each vehicle compared to traditional fuel vehicles. Manufacturers can only increase prices and reduce production, or accept lower profit margins.
Tavares also mentioned that traditional car manufacturers are also facing double pressure from related institutions and investors.
This will only backfire and cause all kinds of problems.
Strandis was formed by the merger of the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It has several auto brands such as Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Jeep.

Dong Chejun went to confirm that the games that can run while driving are: "Arrogant Eagle", "War of Dotopia" and "Card".
Not paying attention while driving is quite dangerous.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019, 3,142 people in the United States lost their lives due to distraction while driving; Move away for more than 24 seconds to complete the task."
So, you must be attentive when driving , and don't think about playing games.
