Pity the prospective owners who are waiting for the bus.

Headquarters moved to Texas, Musk will save billions of dollars in taxes

Musk announced at the shareholders meeting yesterday that Tesla plans to move its headquarters from California to Texas, where they are building a comprehensive base for car and battery manufacturing.

In December of last year, because of dissatisfaction with the California government's order to suspend business of Tesla during the epidemic lockdown, Musk took the government to court and threatened to leave California.

Texas is known for its friendly business environment and loose policies. With the completion of the new factory, Musk is ready to "move", which may save him billions of dollars in taxes. (China Net)

California currently has the highest personal income tax in the United States at 13.3%.

Global oil demand is rising further, and oil prices will rise again

At 0 o'clock tonight, a new round of domestic refined oil price adjustment window will open. Many agencies predict that domestic oil prices will likely rise in this round of price adjustment cycle, which will be the 13th increase this year.

Liu Bingjuan, a refined oil analyst at Longzhong Information, pointed out that maintenance delays during the epidemic and insufficient investment over the years have made it difficult for some OPEC member countries to increase production, and supply expectations are still tight.

According to the Sino-Singapore Jingwei Group, since this year, domestic refined oil prices have undergone 18 rounds of adjustments, with a total increase of 1,355 yuan/ton for gasoline and 1,305 yuan/ton for diesel. (China Youth Daily)

This increase is likely to refresh the record for the largest increase during the year. Having said that, Dong Chejun seems to have not refueled for a while.

Musk: It takes 30 to 40 years for electric cars to replace cars

At the Tesla shareholders meeting, Musk pointed out that it will take decades for us to turn the world's vehicles into pure electric vehicles.

The current global car ownership is about 2 billion, of which pure electric vehicles account for less than 1%.

In terms of sales, pure electric vehicles only account for less than 10%. Therefore, Musk believes that it may take 30 to 40 years for all cars in the world to be electrified. (Gasgoo)

If the market share of electric vehicles is expected to grow rapidly, their prices must be reduced to a sufficiently low level.

Toyota Mirai sets the Guinness World Record for zero emissions at 845 miles

According to CNET reports, Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicles set a new Guinness World Record with its 845-mile (1360 km) zero-emission journey in Southern California: this is the fastest fuel cell vehicle driving without hydrogen. Long distance.

Toyota stated that the vehicle that set the Guinness World Record has not been modified. Bob Carter, Executive Vice President of Toyota North America, said:

This is just one member of our growing lineup of zero-emission products.

In the two-day test, Mirai consumed a total of 5.56kg of hydrogen, and the only thing it emitted was water.

FIA will allow drivers to use uncertified gloves

Since Romain Grosjean crashed in Bahrain last year and suffered burns to his hand, racing gloves have been the focus of FIA research.

Glove manufacturers have been exploring ways to improve fire performance while also ensuring that the rider feels comfortable and feels good about the steering wheel.

In response, the FIA ​​now allows drivers to use uncertified equipment for research purposes. During the Turkish Grand Prix this weekend, five drivers were allowed to try new products from four different suppliers.

Last year Grosjean’s 26 seconds of shock, Dong Chejun is still fresh in his memory, and I hope he is now happily running in IndyCar.

Today's topic: How to treat the value preservation rate of trams?

Yesterday we talked about the self-driving travel experience of electric vehicles, and we can see that our friends are still concerned about the problem of electric vehicles.

Reader @墨丘利 thinks:

Except for Tesla and Weilai, which have relatively mature charging and swapping systems, other trams are suffering when they go out.

Judging from Dong Chejun's experience, this is indeed the case.

There is no need to mention Weilai’s unique battery swap system. Let’s take Tesla as an example. Most Tesla’s super charging stations have ground locks, and only Tesla vehicles can drive in, and they rarely encounter charging. Damaged piles. Although in some areas with fewer charging stations, there is still a phenomenon of queuing during peak hours, the overall experience is good.

▲ Tesla's charging network

In addition to charging, low retention rate is also a major problem for electric vehicles.

A second-hand car dealer friend of Dong Chejun complained recently: New energy vehicles not only depreciate quickly, but no one buys them yet.

In the past two years, he saw that the sales of new energy vehicles were good, so he opened up the second-hand new-energy vehicle business, but the new-energy second-hand vehicles received gave him a headache.

So, today’s topic is:

When you buy an electric car, how do you think about the low value retention rate?

Come share your opinion.
