Kaifeng, Henan, forcibly demolished Weilai for power station, Weilai: legal procedures

This morning, a netizen posted a video saying that Kaifeng City Management in Henan is demolishing a local Weilai swap station.

It is understood that the Kaifeng City Management Bureau issued a demolition decision within a time limit on October 15th, declaring that the replacement station did not comply with the "Kaifeng City Appearance and Environmental Sanitation Management Regulations" and ordered it to be demolished within 3 days.

This incident quickly fermented, and the main discussion points were focused on "Why the local Bureau of Housing and Urban-rural Development, Land and Resources Bureau, petition platform and other relevant departments have clearly stated that the charging and swapping power station does not need to apply for construction land planning permits and other related certificates Under the circumstances, the Kaifeng Urban-Rural Integration Demonstration Zone's illegal construction and rectification operation headquarters still needs to produce relevant certificates? And finally the charging and replacement power station is forcibly demolished?"

The construction of electric vehicle charging infrastructure was originally a key project supported by the state, and it should be supported and helped by local governments.

Lei Jun: Xiaomi car will be officially mass-produced in 2024

On October 19th, at Xiaomi Group’s annual investor day event, Xiaomi’s management shared the latest developments in business and strategy.

Lei Jun revealed that the current progress of Xiaomi's car and team's work has far exceeded his expectations. It is expected that Xiaomi's car will be officially mass-produced in the first half of 2024.

At the same time, Lei Jun stated that Xiaomi’s first factory will be located in Yizhuang, Beijing. It has received 20,000 resumes and has a research and development team of 453 people.

The three advantages of Xiaomi's car making: Xiaomi model, brand and users, and full intelligent ecology.

Jikr 001 is offline, and the first batch of user delivery will start soon

Yesterday, the production model of Jikrypton 001 officially rolled off the assembly line at the Ningbo Hangzhou Bay Jikr Smart Factory. At the same time, the delivery of the first batch of Jikrypton 001 will also start on October 23.

However, due to the epidemic and the shortage of chips, some software functions will be pushed through OTA upgrades in stages.

Specifically, when the new car is delivered, it will be equipped with 360° panoramic image, driving recorder, PAF front parking assist, PAR rear parking assist, etc.; at the end of December this year, ACC adaptive battery life, AEB forward collision mitigation, and LKA lane centering will be introduced. Keep assisting etc.

There was still a bit more turmoil a while ago. Whether it can gain a foothold at the price of 300,000 depends on its subsequent performance.

1.5T+6MT, the new Honda Civic Si released

Yesterday, a new generation of Honda Civic Si was officially released. Compared with the regular version, the new car has a stronger sporty style.

The new Civic Si has changed the "mature and restrained" of the 11th generation Civic. It has 18-inch black sports wheels with a more aggressive style. The large-size spoiler at the rear is also quite eye-catching, demonstrating its sports positioning.

Entering the car, the new car will be equipped with an integrated sports seat with Si logo. At the same time, the red stitching also creates a more intense sports atmosphere.

In addition to the red Si logo, what makes Civic fans more obsessed is the 6-speed manual transmission in the middle.

In addition, in terms of power, it is expected that the new car will continue to use the 11th-generation Civic 1.5T engine, and it is believed that the power will be improved.

Regrettably, Honda will no longer launch the two-door version of the Civic Si.

Volvo's new XC90 launched, fuel consumption as low as 2.2L per hundred kilometers

Today, Volvo’s new XC90 is officially launched, with a price range of RMB 638,900 to RMB 894,900.

The appearance of the new car is also available in two styles, a luxury version and a sports version. The former uses a recessed chrome-plated air intake grille, while the latter is a blackened matrix grille.

In terms of configuration, the new car offers 5-seater and 7-seater layouts, and is equipped with a Baohua Weijian audio system with a total of 19 speakers. In addition, it is equipped with CLEANZONE clean cockpit and Pilot Assist intelligent piloting system and other functional configurations.

In terms of power, the new car is equipped with a 48V light-hybrid system, among which the RECHARGE T8 model can achieve a 100-kilometer acceleration of 5.8 seconds and a fuel consumption of as low as 2.2L. (Online car market)

Among other things, this interior is a bit old.

Nissan's pure electric plan is exposed, and the CMF-EV platform is being developed

Guillaume Cartier, head of Nissan's European market, told the media recently that Nissan will launch a new compact pure-electric crossover SUV model based on the CMF-EV platform, which will replace the Nissan Leaf in the European market in the future.

Nissan said that the planned production capacity of this model at the Sunderland plant is 100,000 vehicles per year. At the same time, the new car is a global model that will be exported from the UK to the entire European market.

Nissan's chief executive officer Makoto Uchida said that the company will announce the next phase of its electric vehicle layout and electrification strategic plan later this fall. (Electric State)

Nissan expects that all its models will be electrified by 2025.

Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Accelerate the promotion of power battery recycling

The spokesperson of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Luo Junjie, said that in the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will accelerate the promotion of the recycling of new energy vehicle power batteries from the aspects of regulations, policies, technology, standards, and industries, focusing on the following aspects:

  • Promote power battery recycling legislation, improve regulatory measures, and increase binding force.
  • Improve the recycling system, strengthen online and offline coordinated traceability supervision, and implement traceability management responsibilities.
  • Strengthen technological innovation, break through the current technical bottlenecks such as the consistency of retired batteries and automated dismantling, and continue to promote the release of a number of national and industry standards.
  • Deepen pilot demonstrations, innovate business models, speed up the construction of cascade utilization demonstration projects such as backup power, and continue to cultivate backbone enterprises for cascade utilization and recycling.

Before the popularization of electric vehicles, think of a way out for them.

New cars hit 150,000, and fuel cars panic?

Shen Yanan, co-founder and president of Ideal Motors, once pointed out to the media:

The traditional car market has a "spindle" structure. There are more mid-price cars and fewer low-end and high-end cars. However, new energy vehicles are the opposite. It is a "dumbbell" market, that is, the market is concentrated in the high-end and low-end areas. The mid-price market will be relatively small.

The September car sales rankings also justified this view. There are two new energy players on the list, Hongguang MINI EV and Tesla Model 3.

However, like other markets, the new energy vehicle market cannot have only two high-end and low-end markets.

In fact, the mid-range market of 150,000 to 200,000 yuan is more representative of the car purchase needs of most Chinese families-a car must be used by a family of young and old, while the leather is durable and cost-effective.

From the current point of view, car companies that dare to hit this price do not seek to make money, but only to seize the market, and at least have a big selling point that is significantly stronger than that of fuel vehicles of the same level.

"If it is cost-effective, the configuration, styling, driving experience and other aspects of electric vehicles will be much better." (Shentu)

Mercedes-Benz and Microsoft demonstrate the application of AR in the automotive field

Mercedes-Benz is injecting the power of AR technology into their dealers, equipping 383 dealers across the United States with virtual remote assistants and hoping to improve the efficiency of their staff.

Microsoft HoloLens 2 is an AR glasses. After the technicians wear it, they can easily call up the circuit diagram, schematic diagram and other details for reference during the repair process.

This AR glasses can even realize real-time "expert consultation". If technicians need expert help, they can receive real-time visual feedback through HoloLens 2 to complete vehicle repairs. (CnBeta)

German design studio launches space concept motorcycle

Recently, Hookie, a design studio from Germany, designed a motorcycle called Tardigrade. This motorcycle is claimed to be the world's first concept space motorcycle, with a body length of 2.6 meters, a height of 0.9 meters, and a weight of 134 kg. It is driven by an electric motor and can last up to 110 kilometers when fully charged.

Most of Tardigrade's chassis components are constructed using 3D printing and are made of stainless steel tubes into a self-supporting frame. Because there are only 7 installation points connected to the main frame, it is very convenient for maintenance.

At the same time, Tardigrade is also wrapped with a special Kevlar fabric, which is heat-resistant and flame-retardant, and can protect the internal transmission system from damage. To prevent ultraviolet radiation, an aluminum coating is also used on the Kevlar fabric.

The motorcycle will make its world premiere at the ADV:Overland exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Boy, isn’t this the ultimate dream of a rider?

Bottas is in hot form, scoring 51 points in three games

Valtteri Bottas of the Mercedes team said that the recent "hot state" has benefited from the determined future-next season, he will play for the Alfa Romeo team.

The Finn has scored a total of 51 points in the last three games, surpassing Verstappen's 36 points and teammate Hamilton's 35 points.

When asked why the recent state is so good, Bottas replied:

I have confidence in myself. After the Italian stop, I felt very relaxed and focused on driving, which would definitely help.

Although he will not stay with the team next season, he said that the team's attitude towards him has not changed, nor has he been excluded from the technical meeting.

When can you drive a truly self-driving car?

With the maturity and development of artificial intelligence technology, autonomous driving has gradually entered our lives.

Regarding autonomous driving, Feng Xingya, General Manager of GAC Group, expressed his views at the 2021 World Intelligent Connected Vehicles Conference:

There are about 30,000 traffic accidents in the United States each year. More than 90% of the accidents are caused by human misoperation, and the proportion of traffic accidents caused by misoperation is very high. Autonomous driving solves this problem very well.

In addition to safety issues, Feng Xingya also gave a more vivid interpretation of the classification of autonomous driving:

Level L0 means all feet, hands, eyes, and brain are used. Level L1 liberates the feet, L2 liberates the hands, L3 liberates the eyes, L4 liberates the brain, and L5 just doesn’t use all of them and is completely automatic.

Isn't it easy to understand if you look at it this way?

Feng Xingya also believes that the large-scale commercial operation of autonomous driving should be within ten years, but if it is to enter the family, it will take 15 to 20 years. (CCTV Finance)

Today's topic: Are you having trouble installing household piles?

In the last issue of Dong Che Daily, Dong Chejun asked: If you were given a chance to come back, which car would you buy?

And @郑建锋小友’s answer amused me:

If I choose again, I choose Audi Double Diamond.

Is it Cyclone Charge or Sonic God of War? (Manual dog head)

▲A whirlwind to charge a tornado

By the way, when he saw that the Weilai charging station was demolished today, Dong Chejun remembered the installation of household piles, because before, many electric vehicle owners encountered obstacles when installing household piles.

Have you encountered any trouble installing household piles? Compared with the fast charging outside, how much has the experience improved?
