Yesterday, data from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers showed that in September this year, the national automobile production and sales situation improved compared with the previous month, reaching 2.077 million and 2.067 million respectively, an increase of 20.4% and 14.9% from the previous month.
Judging from the situation of the month, the tight supply of chips eased slightly, but it still could not meet the production needs. In addition, the base figure of the same period last year was high. Therefore, the production and sales of automobiles increased month-on-month, but decreased year-on-year.
The relevant person in charge of the China Automobile Association said in an analysis.
Looking into the fourth quarter, the overall supply of chips is expected to be better than that in the third quarter, but there is still a shortage. In addition, the electricity curtailment policies in various places will also increase the supply risk of the auto industry. (Beijing Daily)

BMW: The development of electric vehicles focuses on infrastructure
Recently, when attending a round table conference organized by "European Automotive News", BMW Development Director Frank Weber was asked the question: "When will BMW stop producing internal combustion engines?"
For electric mobility, the key question is not when will the internal combustion engine end? The real question is, when will we be ready to accept all pure electric models?
He pointed out that only an electric car with a cruising range of 600 kilometers is a qualified electric car. At the same time, to solve the user's endurance anxiety problem also needs to rely on "a well-functioning charging infrastructure."
That's right, when the infrastructure cannot keep up with the pace of electric vehicles, the story of "charging for one hour, queuing for four hours" will continue to be staged.
Today's topic: Have you ever had the experience of RV camping?
Yesterday, we talked about the concept of "the car is the "third space" of life", but my friends don't seem to be interested in such a function.
Except when camping or traveling by car, I really can't think of a reason to watch a movie in the car. But when traveling by car, who would want to watch a movie in the car?
Speaking of camping, Dong Chejun thought of a friend who rented an RV before National Day and spent a few days playing in several RV camps in the province. I asked him how he experienced it, and he replied: "One word, tired, It was a disaster."
So Dong Chejun wants to ask again here, have you ever had the experience of RV camping? What do you think of RV camping? Let's talk together.
