New Car Information Bureau
Carscoops recently announced a rendering of the new Civic Type R, which is based on previously exposed spy photos.
From the appearance point of view, the new car is quite different from the current model.
The new car has a longer and narrower air intake grille, and the LED headlights with eye-opening design on both sides broaden the width of the body visually.
Judging from the spy photos, the large rear wing with the triple exhaust in the middle gives it a strong sense of sportiness.
In addition, Honda officially stated that the new generation of Civic Type R will not use a hybrid system, it will be equipped with a 2.0T engine.
The six-speed manual transmission is still there.
According to foreign media reports, Volkswagen recently released the 2022 Jetta, which will replace the cut-off basic Golf and Passat in the North American product line.
Volkswagen has brought four different appearances to the new Jetta to meet the needs of different consumers. In addition, in order to keep the price low, the new Jetta also has a version with a six-speed manual transmission.
Under the hood, the 2022 Jetta will be equipped with a 1.5T turbocharged engine with 158 horsepower.
The 2022 Jetta GLI will continue to use the 2.0L engine, which can produce 228 horsepower, matching a manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

Foreign media Autoevolution yesterday exposed a set of road test spy photos of a hybrid version of the Porsche 911. It is understood that this model has a 400-volt electrical system blessing and will become the highest performance version of the 911.
In appearance, the hybrid version of the 911 is not much different from the normal version. The banner-type air intake grille and headlights on the front face still adopt a classic design.
The rear of the new car has sharp edges and corners, the penetrating LED taillights are simple in shape, and the interior is blackened, which is more three-dimensional.
In addition, because the car uses high-voltage technology, a yellow sticker showing its electrification status is posted on the rear window.
Is the 911 going to be electrified, tears.
New forces in car-making
Ideal and Xiaopeng Motors revise the name of the assisted driving system
The name of the assisted driving system has been changed on the ideal car website.

The crossroads of “oil and electricity''
Fast technology news, Mercedes-Benz plans to make autonomous driving technology appear on German highways for the first time later this year.
According to reports, the system equipped with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is mainly designed for highway congestion-at this time the driver usually becomes very impatient.
According to German law, drivers can move their attention away from the road, such as surfing the Internet, writing e-mails or reading the news to pass the time.
If there is a special situation, such as the speed of the car is too fast, or the lane is not clear, it will remind the driver to concentrate as soon as possible and restore control of the vehicle.
Daimler CEO Kang Linsong said:
We are working with government agencies to safely introduce this technology with initial speeds of up to 60 kilometers per hour.
I was stuck on the highway for a long time yesterday!
According to foreign media reports, the BMW Group plans to release at least four pure electric vehicles in the next two years. Currently, the company is accelerating its electrification process.

The new iDrive that BMW released some time ago is very attractive.
General Motors said last week that it has decided to recall all Bolt (including the new Bolt EUV) models due to the risk of fire from high-voltage batteries.
General Motors said that the battery used by Bolt may have two rare manufacturing defects, namely damage to the battery anode and wrinkles in the battery separator, which will increase the risk of battery fire.
The recall caused GM to suffer a loss of 1 billion US dollars. For GM, this is a serious blow. The company is currently seeking to increase sales of electric vehicles. (Via Gasgoo)
Will GM switch from LG to the Ningde era?
According to CNET reports, the Hyperloop (super high-speed rail) concept originally proposed by Musk has made great progress.
Virgin Hyperloop released a video yesterday. Its "electromagnetic propulsion member cabin", Virgin Hyperloop, can transport passengers between cities at the speed of a jet plane.
Imagine Hyperloop as a kind of magnetic levitation train, which runs in an environment close to vacuum, thus eliminating almost all air resistance.
According to reports, Hyperloop can travel comfortably at a speed of 1070km/h.
Virgin Hyperloop's approach is to use smaller, detachable passenger compartments to send passengers to different destinations.
They claim that their battery-powered system is more efficient than today's maglev trains and does not produce direct emissions.
However, for now, it is still a "pipeline" dream.
A few days ago, Wuyang-Honda launched a new small electric motorcycle U Be, priced at US$475, which is approximately RMB 3069.

In terms of power, they are driven by a very small 350-watt engine that can reach a speed of 24km/h.
According to Honda, it has three different sizes of batteries, which are 720, 960, and 1152 watt-hours, and can travel about 54, 69 and 80 miles at a time. (Via cnBeta)
