In terms of drive form, the 700km version is a single-motor rear drive, and the 615km version is a dual-motor four-wheel drive. The maximum power is 180kW and 380kW respectively. (Via cnBeta)
By the way, the new car uses a lithium iron phosphate blade battery.
460 kilometers of battery life, the new BMW iX3 official image released
Yesterday, BMW officially released the 2022 BMW iX3.
The appearance of the new car continues the exclusive design language of the BMW i series, and the iconic kidney grille is equipped with slimmer LED headlights.
It is worth mentioning that this update will be equipped with the M Sport appearance package as standard. The blue trim on the front face and the BMW i diffuser at the rear make the appearance very smart.
In terms of power, the new iX3 is equipped with the fifth-generation BMW eDrive electric drive system, with a maximum output of 282 horsepower and an acceleration time of 6.8 seconds from 100 kilometers.
The new car’s WLTP has a cruising range of 460km and supports 150kW fast charging, which can add about 100km of battery life in 10 minutes.
The new car will be unveiled at the Munich Auto Show which opens next month.
Yesterday, Motor1 exposed the road test spy photos of Mercedes-Benz's new A-class.
The change in appearance lies in the front face, and the headlight module and front surround are the key upgrades. At the same time, the taillights and rear brackets have also been changed.
Compared with the appearance, the biggest change of the new car comes from the power.
There are rumors that the new A-class will use a new four-cylinder engine jointly developed by Mercedes and Geely, replacing the previous 1.3T engine from Renault. (Via cnBeta)
The original 1.3T of the A-class has been criticized for a long time, and Dong Chejun is looking forward to this new engine.
New forces in car-making
Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Do not upgrade new auto driving functions without authorization
Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the "Opinions on Strengthening the Management of Intelligent Networked Automobile Manufacturers and Product Access."
The "Opinions" require that before implementing online upgrade activities, companies should ensure that their automotive products comply with relevant national laws and regulations, technical standards and technical specifications and file with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
In addition, changes in technical parameters related to safety, energy saving, environmental protection, anti-theft, etc. should be reported to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in advance to ensure the consistency of automotive product production.
Without approval, it is not allowed to add or update auto-driving functions of vehicles through online software upgrades.
Should NGP (High Speed Autonomous Navigation Driving) be approved?
Weilai Automobile today released the company's second quarter 2021 financial report as of June 30.
The report shows that NIO’s total revenue in the second quarter was 8.448 billion yuan, an increase of 5.8% compared with the previous quarter, and the net loss was 587.2 million yuan.
Weilai CEO Li Bin said:
While the global supply chain is still facing uncertainty, we have been working closely with our partners to increase the overall supply chain capacity. More importantly, we must accelerate the development of our products and technologies.
In addition, he also revealed that NIO plans to deliver three new models based on the NT2.0 technology platform, including ET7, next year. (Via Sina Technology)
There is also news recently that Weilai will launch a sub-brand that focuses on low-priced models.
Tesla's domestic deliveries of Chinese-made cars fell sharply last month, with domestic deliveries of only 8,621 vehicles, a 69% decrease from the previous month.
Previously, the company broke out negative news one after another, and subsequently faced recall issues. This may be the reason that affects domestic sales.
However, the export volume of the Shanghai plant has almost quadrupled, reaching a total of 24,347 vehicles, most of which will be sold to Europe.
As a result, the total delivery volume of Tesla China in July only dropped by 0.6% to 32,968 vehicles. (Via Sina Finance)
Tesla's domestic sales in July hit a new low in the past 15 months.
The crossroads of “oil and electricity''
Recently, Ferrari officially announced the launch of a pure electric version of the Testa Rossa J model.
This car is based on the 1957 Ferrari legendary car Testa Rossa for 75% of the proportion of replicas, produced by the Little Car Company.
In terms of exterior design, the new car completely restored the classic styling of the original 250 Testa Rossa Barchetta, including unique headlights and a "cute" front air intake.
At the same time, those interiors with a sense of time and hand-made accessories in the car give the car a very elegant texture.
This pure electric version of Testa Rossa J uses a single motor drive with a maximum power of 4kW, and can reach a speed of 60km/h in the "sports" mode. (Via electric state)
It turned out to be a Ferrari version of the "electric kart". By the way, it sells for 700,000 yuan (manual dog head).
A few days ago, Changan Automobile released the announcement picture of UNI's first sedan.
From the picture, the new car continues the UNI family's iconic borderless design concept. The avant-garde grille with sharp headlights looks quite aggressive.
The new car adopts a slip-back design at the rear, coupled with the waistline extending from the front to the rear, adding a lot of sportiness to the whole car.
Its tail design is also very dynamic, not only with sharp through-type taillights and dual exhaust exhaust, but also with a unique electric rear wing of the same level.
In terms of power, the new car will be equipped with a 1.5T Blue Whale engine with a maximum power of 138kW.
The car will be officially unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show. (Via Sina Auto)
This car is still very much to look forward to, and it is likely to bring us surprises.
Audi showcases a new variable wheelbase concept car Skysphere
Yesterday, Audi showed us a new concept car Skysphere.
This is an electric two-door convertible model equipped with black technology such as variable wheelbase and steering wheel hiding.
The new car is divided into two models: GT and Sports. In GT mode, the car has a total length of 5.19m and focuses on autonomous driving and riding experience.
In the Sports mode, the length of the body will be shortened by 25cm, which can bring an excellent driving experience to the driver.
In the power part, the total output power of the new car's electric motor is 465kW, about 60% of the vehicle's weight is distributed on the rear axle, and it only takes 4 seconds to accelerate to 100%.
Yesterday's Dong Chehui article introduced this car in detail. If you are interested, please click here .
According to foreign media reports, the hydrogen-powered heavy-duty truck company Hyzon Motors said yesterday that the company is working hard to deliver the first trucks to European customers.
Currently, the company's quarterly net loss is $9.4 million, and Hyzon hopes this transaction will bring a huge capital injection.
CEO Craig Knight said at the meeting: Many customers will be exposed to fuel cell vehicles for the first time in the next 6 to 12 months.
This is a true technical verification process, and customers need to feel comfortable that the vehicle runs well under their usage conditions.
Perhaps electricity is not the only option in the future.
Motional is a joint venture with Aptiv and Hyundai with a USD 4 billion investment.
According to reports, the company is expanding its business in California-testing self-driving cars in Los Angeles.
Motional said that the test will use Hyundai IONIQ 5 all-electric vehicles. The car will become the basis of Motional's commercial robotic taxi service.
These vehicles will be equipped with lidar, radar, cameras and other hardware and software required for L4 autonomous driving. (Via cnBeta)
I am curious why everyone comes to Los Angeles to test autonomous driving.
Cars can also be designed like this
If you want to ask which domestic auto company that exploded on the Internet last year, it is naturally a red flag.
At this year's Shanghai Auto Show, Hongqi released the Hongqi L-Concept concept car, which once again refreshed our understanding of Hongqi.
From the styling point of view, the front face design of this large four-door GT sedan is very exaggerated. While retaining the Hongqi’s iconic waterfall grille, it also adds rich designs to the headlights and front lip.
The waistline of the new car adopts a two-stage design, which visually extends the length of the body and is full of muscle.
At the same time, the new car's waistline also outlines the wide-body effect of the front and rear fenders, with large-size densely-spoke wheels, which looks full of momentum.
The fastback tail design makes the rear of the car look very huge, and the taillight set adopts the classic "four level and eight stability" design language, which looks particularly cordial.
In terms of interior, the new car is built with an extremely luxurious atmosphere, and the front center console has a through-type design.
The car's rear design is as luxurious as a palace, and even uses pendants similar to crystal chandelier for embellishment.
However, Hongqi has not yet announced the power parameters of the L-Concept concept car. The car is expected to be mass-produced in 2023. (Via car home)
