ID.AERO concept car to be unveiled on June 27

Volkswagen Group previewed their electric concept sedan ID. Aero on Tuesday local time, and announced that the car will be unveiled on June 27.

Judging from the preview image, the new car continues the appearance design of the ID. series, especially the through-type taillights with dot matrix design, which are quite similar to the current ID. series models.

Coming to the front, the situation is different. The front face of the ID. Aero is very sharp, the headlights are sharp, and the air guide at the bottom is also very angular.

Volkswagen said that the concept car will have excellent aerodynamic design, unprecedented space and luxurious interior, and the production version may be launched in the Chinese market in the second half of 2023.

It's still some time away from its mass production, so let's take a look at the renderings first.

BMW officially unveils the M3 Touring

Years after the introduction of the Audi RS4 Avant and AMG C63 Estate, BMW has finally brought the M3's first touring version, the M3 Touring.

Codenamed G81, the M3 Touring also uses a twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine with 510 horsepower and a maximum torque of 650N·m.

Similar to the M3 Competition, the M3 Touring's power can be sent to all four wheels via an 8AT gearbox and xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which can also be switched to rear-drive mode.

Although it has become a station wagon, the weight of the new car is only about 85kg heavier than its sedan version, and the 0-96km/h acceleration result is 3.6 seconds, only 0.1 seconds slower than the M3.

BMW said that the M3 Touring will make its first public appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which opens on the 23rd of this month.

I believe that G81 can give global Bimmers a more personalized and perfect choice.

New Toyota Crown Appearance Patent Images Exposure

Recently, a set of patent drawings of Toyota's new-generation crown were exposed. The overall design of the new car is quite different from the previous crown. The front face is designed radically, and the rear is also replaced with a slip-back design.

In terms of size, the length, width and height of the new car are 4930/1840/1540mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2850mm.

Foreign media motor1 quoted sources as saying that the new generation of Crown will be a crossover model, named Crown Cross. The new car is built on the TNGA-K platform, with a motor and a 2.4L engine, matched with a 6AT gearbox.

It doesn't look like a crown at all.

Tesla asks car owners to return 14,000 yuan in state subsidies

Recently, some Tesla owners received a notification letter from Tesla requesting supplementary payment, because the vehicle did not reach the mileage required by the national subsidy policy within the specified time, and the national subsidy must be returned.

In response, Tesla responded that the current car purchase discount already includes the state subsidy paid in advance by car companies, but the relevant policy requires that the vehicle must reach 20,000 kilometers within two years to enjoy the subsidy. Therefore, vehicles that do not meet the conditions need to return about 14,000 yuan of state subsidies.

It’s worth noting that this back-payment requirement is only for vehicles registered in the company’s name, and individual vehicle owners will not be affected. (The Paper)

The introduction of this policy is not for anything else, but to suppress the bad atmosphere of "cheating and subsidizing" new energy vehicles.

Xpeng suspends P5 pre-orders in four European countries due to delivery issues

Xpeng Motors confirmed that due to supply chain issues, it has suspended its P5 electric car reservations in four European countries, and previous orders could not be delivered on time.

In March this year, Xiaopeng P5 officially opened for reservations in Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden, allowing customers to configure the P5 and pay a deposit for reservations.

In addition, Xpeng Motors has opened "experience stores" in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands to educate local consumers and gauge interest in the P7 and P5 before deciding which electric vehicle to introduce first to which specific market. (Sina Technology)

As for the Chinese market, don't worry about it yet.

The second stop of Ningde EVOGO battery swap service landed in Hefei

CATL has officially launched the EVOGO battery swap service in Hefei, Anhui. The first batch of services will provide three quick-change stations. It is expected that by the end of this year, EVOGO will complete the operation of 20 quick-change stations in Hefei, and can achieve a service radius of 5 kilometers in the urban area of ​​Hefei.

In January of this year, Ningde Times announced its entry into the power exchange track, and released the power exchange service brand EVOGO Lexing Power Exchange, as well as a combined power exchange solution based on the vehicle-electric separation mode, which is operated by Ningde Times’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Times Electric Service. .

This is another city in the post-Ningde era after Xiamen that has been deployed for power exchange.

It is worth noting that Hefei happens to be the hometown of Weilai, and the Ningde era chose to deploy in Hefei, which is not unrelated to the support of the local government for the power station.

Hyundai-Kia's cumulative sales of new energy vehicles exceeded 3 million units

A few days ago, statistics released by Hyundai Motor and Kia showed that in the first five months of this year, the sales of new energy vehicles of the two companies totaled 393,509 units, and the cumulative sales exceeded the 3 million mark, with a total of 3,006,414 units.

Geely's fourth-generation Emgrand alcohol-electric hybrid sedan rolls off the production line

On June 22, the fourth-generation Emgrand Hybrid Hybrid sedan rolled off the assembly line at Geely's Shanxi Jinzhong Base, officially starting mass production. At the same time, Geely Jinzhong Base's first long-range methanol heavy truck also rolled off the assembly line.

It is understood that Geely Automobile is currently the only company in the world that mass-produces methanol vehicles. At present, more than 20 methanol-fueled commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles have been successfully developed, with nearly 30,000 vehicles in large-scale operation nationwide, with a total operating mileage of nearly 10 billion kilometers.

Back to this Emgrand alcohol-electric hybrid sedan, it is equipped with a new generation of 1.8L alcohol-electric hybrid special engine, with a thermal efficiency of 41.5%. Geely said that its alcohol consumption per 100 kilometers is 9.2L, and the travel cost per kilometer is less than 0.3 yuan.

After checking, Guangzhou doesn't even have a methanol refueling station, but Beijing has found one.

Baidu Apollo "fully driverless" fleet launched in Guangzhou

In July last year, Radish Kuaipao's self-driving travel service was launched in Guangzhou. Users can order a car experience through the Radish Kuaipao app. To ensure the safety of passengers, these autonomous vehicles will be equipped with a safety officer.

But just recently, Baidu Apollo's "fully driverless" fleet has driven into Guangzhou's Nansha District, and these vehicles are not equipped with safety officers.

Previously, Guangzhou issued the "Guiding Opinions on the Work Related to Road Testing of Intelligent Connected Vehicles", allowing vehicles that have obtained remote testing qualifications to conduct autonomous driving tests on open roads without people under the remote monitoring guarantee system.

At present, Guangzhou is gradually promoting the development of autonomous driving through stages and fields, and piloting the application demonstration work of autonomous vehicles in Huangpu, Nansha, Panyu, Huadu, Haizhu and other areas in different mixed driving environments.

Sitting, except a little slower, it's pretty good.

Li Xiang: The ideal L9, which is 100,000 more expensive, is not to worry about selling

On the morning of June 22, Lixiang Auto held its first media communication meeting after the release of Lixiang L9 in Beijing. Several Lixiang Auto executives, including Li Xiang himself, answered questions about product technology, supply chain, and pricing.

Li Xiang first made some comments on the pricing of the Ideal L9:

Because the price range above 400,000 is a very healthy market. Many technologies ideal to use today were very expensive in the early days, such as 7.3.4 audio. Therefore, the ideal needs to promote some more expensive models in the early stage, and then promote more models with different price points after the scale is expanded to dilute the cost.

As for the product positioning of the Ideal L9, Li Xiang said that 89% of the purchase group of more than 200,000 yuan are household users. "We only eat in one range and one range."

Unlike other high-end SUVs at the same price, ideal has little to do with traditional "high-end" and "luxury". Li Xiang believes that they spend all their money on the word "family".

But when you talk about family, he will build every penny and every technology around family, I think this is different. It's a question of positioning.

He Xiaopeng: If I can regret it, I don't want to use my own name

On June 22, in Netease Technology's program "To the Forerunners, Chasing Dreams", Yang Lan interviewed He Xiaopeng, CEO of Xiaopeng Motors, and talked about the past and experience sharing of Xiaopeng since the car was built.

In the program, the host Yang Lan asked: In the previous interview with Li Ning, he said that if he went back to the entrepreneurial stage of that year, he would never use his own name to name the product. What do you think?

He Xiaopeng said: I don't want to go back to that day. I think it's a responsibility and a pressure. Accountability will allow you to do things better, be more reliable, and lead to higher customer satisfaction. But the pressure is that as the scale gets bigger, so does the pressure.

At that time, co-founder Xia Henglai asked me for my opinion, "Can it be called Xiaopeng Motors?" I am still worried. But then I thought that the world's well-known companies and car brands all originated from the people in history. At that time, I thought, why can't our Chinese brands do what foreign brands can do?

If you were the one who built the car, what name would you use?

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
