New Car Information Bureau
A few days ago, some media exposed the configuration information of the new Volkswagen Tiguan L.
All new cars come standard with ESP, EPB, ramp assist functions, dual front airbags, front and rear head air curtains, front preloaded seat belts and tire pressure monitoring functions.
All models except the low version are equipped with LCD instrumentation, ACC adaptive cruise, front seat heating/ventilation, lane keeping, parallel assist, fatigue monitoring, Harman Kardon audio and other configurations.
It is worth mentioning that the new car's central control display adopts a floating design, and the central control area and steering wheel also use a lot of touch-sensitive buttons, and the technological atmosphere of the entire cockpit has been improved.
At present, the new car has started blind booking and is expected to be officially listed on the 20th of this month.
There is no greasy fan in the past.
As a luxury car brand under Toyota, Lexus has always had good sales, especially Lexus ES.
Even though it was repeatedly complained about "the weakest power of the same level", it did not affect the hot sale of the car in the slightest, and even increased the price once.
Yesterday, the new Lexus ES was officially launched, with a total of 10 models launched, with a price range of RMB 294,900 to RMB 484,900.
As a mid-term facelift model, the new ES is mainly adjusted in terms of appearance, interior details and configuration.
From the appearance point of view, the iconic spindle grille has an L-shaped horizontal grain design added to it, with the new headlights and wheels, the whole is more elegant and coordinated.
In terms of power, the car has three options:
- 2.0L NA engine, 173 horsepower, CVT gearbox;
- 2.5L NA engine, 207 horsepower, 8AT gearbox;
- 2.5L NA engine + electric motor, 218 horsepower, E-CVT gearbox.
The ES is really comfortable to sit up, so don't complain about other people's motivation haha.
According to Autocar reports, Mercedes-Benz will launch a concept car at the Munich Motor Show in September this year, paving the way for a pure electric G-Class in 2024.
It is reported that the new car may be named Mercedes-Benz EQG and will be equipped with the same powertrain as the EQS, equipped with a 107.8kW·h battery pack, and the maximum output power can reach 385kW.
It is reported that the new car will not be based on the existing EVA, but based on a new platform, and will still retain the non-carrying body design.
It is believed that after electrification, the passability of the G-class will be greatly improved.
New forces in car-making
Many car brand founders speak up for “autonomous driving''
Recently, the discussion on "how to treat the popularity of assisted driving but frequent accidents" continued to ferment. Yesterday, Weimar Motors founder Shen Hui expressed his views on Weibo:
Ideal car founder Li Xiang also expressed in Moments that he called on the media and industry organizations to unify the standard of Chinese terms for autonomous driving: L2=assisted driving, L3=advanced assisted driving, L4=autonomous driving, L5=unmanned driving, avoid exaggeration The publicity caused misunderstanding of users.
360 founder Zhou Hongyi agrees. He believes that "artificial intelligence is not a marketing technique. It is not that magical. Autonomous driving and unmanned driving still have a lot of ways to go. There are many pitfalls to fill, and you can't mislead users for marketing."
Take your life in your own hands.
U.S. launches formal investigation into Tesla's autonomous driving
Yesterday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that it had officially launched an investigation into Tesla's autopilot system, citing a collision with a parked emergency vehicle.
The survey covered 765,000 Tesla Model Y, Model X, Model S and Model 3 models produced between 2014 and 2021.
NHTSA said that in some of the accidents identified in this investigation, a total of 17 people were injured and 1 person died.
A vehicle parked on the side of the road is easily recognized by the system as a guardrail.
Although there are many performance cars that can complete a quarter-mile sprint in 10 seconds, only one can run in 9 seconds.
According to foreign media reports, Rimac Nevera recently broke the quarter-mile acceleration record of a production car, with a final result of 8.582 seconds.
This is an electric supercar equipped with four engines, with a peak torque of 3600N·m and 1914 horsepower.
The driver of this challenge was Brooks Wieselblat of Dragtimes, who ran 8.74 seconds in the first test.
In the 11th challenge that followed, he set a new record of 8.582 seconds.
By the way, the 100-kilometer acceleration recorded that day was 1.9 seconds (fear. jpg).
The crossroads of “oil and electricity''
According to The Race news, Mercedes will withdraw from Formula E after the end of the season, adding that this is the decision of the Daimler Group's board of directors.
This means that FE will lose the three oldest German companies-Mercedes, BMW, and Audi at the same time in 2022.
Toto Wolff, executive director of the Mercedes-AMG team, said in an interview at the FE Berlin station:
The decision regarding the future of the Mercedes FE project has been made, but it is reluctant to talk about any details.
Have the readers of Dong Chehui watch FE?
Recently, BYD and the local Norwegian distributor RSA delivered the first batch of BYD Don EVs to users.
According to the plan, BYD will deliver 1,500 Don EVs in Norway during the year. This delivery is the first batch of 100 new vehicles that arrived in Norway at the end of last month.
At present, BYD has "shipped" more than 600 Tang EV models to Norway. In addition, BYD also plans to launch the Han EV in Norway, laying out the pure electric car market. (Via electric state)
It is hoped that these Chinese brands will be able to "shine and shine" in the Norwegian market.
Yesterday, Oula, a brand of Great Wall, announced that it will release a new model of the Ballet Cat at the upcoming Chengdu Auto Show.
The shape of the new car is the same as that of the punk cat, referring to the design of the classic Beetle.
Up to now, the official has not disclosed any information about the power of the car, and it is expected that its cruising range will be 300 kilometers to 400 kilometers, mainly to meet the daily transportation needs.
I don't know what the public will think?
Yesterday, Virgin Galactic officially released a 4-minute video to promote its space travel service.
In the video, Virgin Galactic introduced the entire flight process of the spacecraft Unity in detail, and focused on how the passengers felt in space. The overall time was about an hour.
In addition, Virgin Galactic announced that people who want to experience Virgin Galactic's space travel services will now need to pay a seat fee of US$450,000.
According to foreign media reports, researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology have developed an intelligent road monitoring system that can prevent drivers from accidents in sharp or blind turns.
It is understood that the system includes two detection units, located on both sides of the fork road, and two units used to send reminders to the driver.
When the vehicle passes through the detection unit, the system can identify the speed, direction, and vehicle type. When necessary, the system will send corresponding signals to the driver. (Via Gasgoo)
This sounds pretty useful.
While other car brands are boasting about its "state-of-the-art" features, the Australian advertising company Innocean came up with a new approach for Hyundai Motors, positioning the new Hyundai Tucson as the car of the future.
In this advertisement, the couple parked their car behind the gate, followed by a few small robots.
They secretly observe the car, sneak into the car, enjoy the car's interior, music, etc. In the end, they drove away and disappeared into the road.
Take a look at this interesting advertisement:
