According to official news from SAIC Volkswagen, its third pure electric vehicle ID.3 will soon be launched.
Although the performance of ID.3 is not so eye-catching compared to domestic models of the same level, for Volkswagen, ID.3 is its "Electric Era Golf". In the European market, this car has been won for many months. Won the title of European electric car sales champion.
Returning to the new car itself, ID.3 is positioned as a compact pure electric vehicle, and both the exterior and interior adopt the family design of the ID. series.
At the same time, Volkswagen designed a unique "B" file for it, which is the "single pedal mode" of the ID. series. Similar to Tesla, in this gear, the driver can accelerate and decelerate the vehicle only by retracting the accelerator pedal.
In terms of price, according to Volkswagen's previous statement, the price of the car will not exceed 200,000 yuan.
At this price point, ID.3 will have many competitors. Euler Haomao and GAC Aion Y are quite competitive. While relying on brand advantages, Volkswagen also needs to show some sincerity.
Weimar M7 officially released, equipped with 3 lidars
Just now, Weimar Motors' first pure electric sedan, Weimar M7, was officially released.
The new car is equipped with 32 sensors including 3 autonomous zoom lidars, which can achieve full coverage of car usage scenarios such as residential parking, urban roads, and intercity highways.
Its exterior design is derived from the Weimar Maven concept car, with slender headlights, and the overall lines are very dynamic. In addition, the most eye-catching feature is the observation tower lidar on the roof, which can recognize vehicles up to 180-200 meters away.
In terms of battery life, Weimar claims that the NEDC range of the new car will exceed 700km.
At the press conference, Weimar emphasized the most "emotional interaction" between the user and the vehicle. In the case of the M7, it was manifested in the aspect of voice interaction: "Xiaowei Serena, can you stop the car by yourself?"
Mercedes-Benz officially opened the pre-sale of two pure electric products, EQA and EQB, yesterday. The pre-sale price of EQA 300 4MATIC is 370,000 yuan, and EQB 350 4MATIC is 440,000 yuan.
Previously, Mercedes-Benz had only an EQC pure electric car on sale in China. Although the car has been made in China, its price is still as high as 499,800 yuan.
In the era of electric vehicles, the aura of luxury brands is obviously not as dazzling as that of fuel vehicles, and the domestic sales of EQC are also hard to say.
Attention is returned to the new car. Mercedes-Benz EQA and GLA have a lot of similarities, because EQA and EQB are both "oil-to-electricity" products, but the front face uses the Mercedes-Benz electric EQ family face.
Among them, the new EQA car will be equipped with a front and rear dual-motor power system with a combined power of 294 horsepower and a CLTC cruising range of 537km. (Quick Technology)
At this price, compare the Tesla Model Y high-performance version and the top-of-the-line Krypton 001, what choice would you make?
Huawei launches Harmony OS smart cockpit
Huawei Yu Chengdong revealed today that Huawei will work with Celes to launch a new luxury mid-size SUV. This new car will debut in the Harmony OS smart cockpit, which will be launched as soon as the end of this year.
According to Huawei, the smart cockpit can realize seamless connection between devices, and three-party developers such as car manufacturers and suppliers can also work with Huawei to improve the application ecology of the smart cockpit.
It is reported that this SUV equipped with Harmony OS is likely to be the Sai Lisi M5 that was previously unveiled in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's declaration catalog.
Dong Chejun feels that before making cars smarter, manufacturers still have to think about the specific application scenarios of "smart cockpits" at this stage, and don't let users "pay for the future."
BMW officially released the official image of the new M135i xDrive.
The appearance of the new car is basically the same as that of the ordinary BMW 1 series, except that the details have been adjusted, such as the addition of the M badge on the fenders, etc., and the overall is relatively low-key.
The biggest difference between the new car and the ordinary 1 series is its 2.0T engine. It has 306 horsepower and a maximum torque of 450N·m. It is matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission and is equipped with a four-wheel drive system. The acceleration time to 100 kilometers is only 4.8 seconds.
In addition, BMW has re-tuned its suspension to make it use more flexible handling performance. (Car House)
The small size of the net looks good.
Land Rover confirmed that the new generation of Range Rover will be released on October 26, Eastern Time. At the same time, Land Rover also brought us two new car preview pictures.

Like the Range Rover Sport version, the new Range Rover will also be built on the MLA platform, and derivative models such as light hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric versions are expected to be launched.
In addition, it is reported that the performance version of the Range Rover SVR will be equipped with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine.

Make it possible to return home.
▲Toyota Chief Scientist Jill Pratt
Toyota’s chief scientist Gill Pratt made a statement about pure electric vehicles at the Reuters Automotive Summit yesterday:
Many people are very enthusiastic about how to deal with climate change, but it does not mean that everyone should drive a pure electric car. Toyota firmly believes in the "diversity of power systems" and will insist on providing customers with different tools to reduce carbon emissions.
Prior to this, Akio Toyoda and other Toyota executives had publicly supported hybrid or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
We cannot say which solution is the best in the future, nor can we say that only this solution will work.
Pratt added. (Autoblog)
As far as the current domestic market is concerned, the hybrid solution is obviously a more "grounded" choice, but this is ultimately only a transitional solution.

Unlike last year when only one electric drive system was selected, there were even more electric drive systems selected this year than gasoline engines. This is undoubtedly an "electrification victory."
According to The Verge, Elon Musk’s Boring company received approval from Las Vegas on October 20 to build a car tunnel network called Vegas Loop.
The network includes 46 kilometers of tunnels and 51 stations, which can transport 57,000 passengers to their destinations per hour.
In fact, the Boring company has built a 1.3-kilometer car tunnel under the Las Vegas Convention Center and has begun to transport passengers.
Musk's target, Tesla, ran inside by himself, but there are still human drivers sitting on it.
Although electric motorcycles may be an interesting and economical mode of transportation, finding parking spaces for them may be a problem.
This Tatamel Bike will not have this problem. In the folded state, it is only the size of a mainframe chassis, and you can even put it under the table.
When unrolling, the motorcycle is 1230mm in length and is driven by a 600W motor. It has a maximum speed of 40km/h and a cruising range of up to 50 kilometers.
This interesting product comes from the Japanese company Icoma. According to Japanese law, the car is classified as a moped and requires a standard motorcycle driver's license. (CnBeta)
Very cute car, but Dong Chejun thinks it is a bit weird to mention it to the company.
Verstappen refused to participate in the filming of "Drive to Survive"
Regarding the recent Netflix documentary "Drive to Survive", Verstappen said that he would not be involved.
"They forged some competition that didn't actually exist," Verstappen said, "so I decided not to participate in it and not to accept any interviews."
Verstappen said that he is not a person who likes theater performances. In contrast, he prefers to have one-on-one interviews with people who really want to know him.
When the British veteran agent 007 is flying into the sky in the rain of bullets, you must not look away from the dark hardcore SUV he is driving.
Because this is a Land Rover Defender 007 Collector's Edition limited to 300 units worldwide, there are 70 units of 110 models in the Chinese market, and the official price is 1.7 million yuan.
As a limited edition British car with a price of over one million, the interior of the Land Rover Defender 007 Collector's Edition has many interesting details. For example, the welcome pedal lighting with the classic 007 logo and the customized screen opening animation, so that every owner can empathize with 007.
Its power is also quite good. The 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine has 525 horsepower and a maximum torque of 625N·m, an acceleration time from 100 kilometers in 5.4 seconds, and a top speed of 240km/h. (interface)
