Tesla denies price cuts before year-end

In the past month, Tesla first lowered the price of the Model 3/Y models by 14,000 to 37,000 yuan. Then, an insurance subsidy of 8,000 yuan was introduced for users who came to pick up the car.

On the morning of November 22, Tiger Sniff reported that after the above-mentioned two promotions, Tesla’s order increase was still lower than expected, so it will further launch new “price reduction methods” before the end of the year to boost sales.

Later, Tesla responded, saying that the news was not true.

NIO Launches Buyout Service in Europe

On October 8, NIO officially brought three models of ET7, EL7 (ES7), and ET5 to the markets of Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Sweden. However, the sales model of "rent only, not sell" has been controversial.

On November 22, Weilai announced that the company will provide buyout services for the European market, and the vehicles will be delivered in early 2023.

The vehicle purchase price of each model is as follows:

ET7

  • The 75-degree version costs 81,900 euros, about 601,000 yuan
  • The 100-degree version costs 90,900 euros, about 667,000 yuan

EL7 (ES7)

  • The 75-degree version costs 85,900 euros, about 630,000 yuan
  • The 100-degree version costs 94,900 euros, about 697,000 yuan

ET5

  • The 75-degree version costs 61,900 euros, about 454,000 yuan
  • The 100-degree version costs 70,900 euros, about 520,000 yuan

BaaS solution

  • The starting price of ET7 is 69,900 euros, about 513,000 yuan
  • The starting price of EL7 is 73,900 euros, about 542,000 yuan
  • The starting price of ET5 is 49,900 euros, about 366,000 yuan
  • 75 degree battery rental is 169 Euro/month, about 1200 RMB
  • 100-degree battery rental is 289 euros/month, about 2100 yuan

Mazda's rotary engine "returns" next year

Officially confirmed by Mazda, the MX-30 R-EV equipped with a rotary engine will be unveiled at the Brussels Motor Show on January 13. However, it should be noted that the "returned" rotary engine does not directly drive the vehicle, but acts as a range extender to charge the battery.

The MX-30 R-EV will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of 35.5kWh, with a pure electric range of 160km. Its power is provided by an electric motor with a maximum power of 144 horsepower and a peak torque of 271 Nm. It takes 9.6 seconds to accelerate from 0-96 km/h.​​​​​​

According to previous reports from Bitauto.com, thanks to the more compact structure, the rotor range extender can have a more flexible and free layout, and the high-speed work efficiency is also higher.

Those who say "you must buy it", it's time to prepare a down payment.

Faraday Future: FF 91 is not expected to be delivered this year

Faraday Future said in an announcement Monday night that delivery of the FF 91 was uncertain and "not expected to be in 2022."

The company has repeatedly stated that the FF 91 will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year, but today, the launch of this model is "still subject to various conditions."

Faraday Future said that additional funds will be needed after 2022 to support the production of FF 91 and achieve the company's cash flow breakeven.

Not long ago, FF91 received a financing of up to 350 million US dollars, but some insiders said that even if FF received a new round of financing, it would be difficult to speed up the mass production time of FF91. (WSJ)

This year I really can't deliver it, and everyone in the comment area said it was right.

BYD refutes battery rumors

Later, Auto announced on the morning of the 22nd that BYD plans to mass-produce sodium-ion batteries in the second quarter of 2023. The batteries will be installed in Qin EV, Dolphin, and the new model Seagull.

In addition, the industry has recently rumored that BYD's all-solid-state lithium batteries have been produced in Chongqing and will soon be loaded into vehicles for testing.

In response to the above two rumors about BYD in the battery field, BYD denied it at noon on the 22nd, saying that the relevant information was all false information.

BYD: Don't talk nonsense, I still want to sell cars.

BYD speeds up its job grabbing, with a maximum annual salary of 400,000

In recent years, the new energy vehicles that stand on the cusp are forming a new talent siphon effect, and the competition for talents among auto companies is also intensifying.

It is understood that BYD plans to recruit 35,000 fresh graduates this year, and has signed 18,000 tripartite agreements on school recruitment.

According to Times Finance reports, BYD's salary for graduates depends on the level of the institution and the degree of education. For example, the annual salary package for graduates with a double non-bachelor degree is roughly 90,000 yuan, while the annual package salary for graduates from C9's key 985 universities is between 326,000 yuan and 408,000 yuan. Salary levels for PhD graduates are higher.

According to CCTV news broadcast data, the number of BYD employees will reach 650,000 by the end of this year, an increase of nearly 280,000 for the whole year.

WM CEO’s internal letter exposed: 50% to 30% off salary for all employees

On the afternoon of November 21, WM Motor CEO Shen Hui issued an internal letter to all employees, saying that in order to cope with financial pressure, he will reduce operating costs through a series of financial measures.

These include the payment of 50% of the basic salary for M4 and above managers; the payment of 70% of the basic salary for other employees, the cancellation of year-end bonuses and other bonuses, and the suspension of car purchase subsidies.

Previously, HR in Shanghai Weima had verbally notified salary cuts, while Chengdu Weima employees may face other cost reduction measures.

According to previous reports, in 2021, the salary of Shen Hui, the founder of WM Motor, will be 1.2617 billion yuan. In the same year, the total salary paid by WM Motor to the main management was 1.75 billion yuan, and the salary of Shen Hui alone accounted for 72% of the salary of the main management.

Later, Weimar Motors responded that the prospectus was written very clearly. Of the 1.2617 billion yuan in Weimar Shenhui's annual salary, 2.01 million yuan was salary and bonuses, and 1.2597 billion yuan was option incentives.

Some companies are busy robbing people, and some bosses are worried about reducing costs.

Musk says Twitter layoffs are over

On Monday, Musk announced at an all-staff meeting at Twitter's San Francisco headquarters that the company's layoffs had ended and that it would start actively hiring engineering and sales staff.

People familiar with the matter said that before Musk took over Twitter, the company had more than 7,000 employees, and now there are only more than 2,700 people left.

So, this is to cut out the unsatisfactory ones first, and then recruit the satisfied ones.

Musk fears losing his position as world's richest man

Tesla’s stock price has fallen 52% this year, hitting its lowest level in two years. With the stock price plummeting, Musk's wealth loss in 2022 has exceeded 100 billion U.S. dollars (about 716.5 billion yuan).

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, although Musk's net worth has shrunk sharply, he still ranks first in the world with US$169.8 billion. However, Bernard Arnault, chairman of Louis Vuitton, is in second place, and is currently only about $13 billion behind Musk.

LG turns parts of car interiors into speakers

LG Display has developed a new "invisible" speaker technology for cars that uses a vibrating panel the size of a passport to generate sound.

The technology, jointly developed by LG Display and an unnamed "global audio company," is expected to be used in car interiors next year, where it will be installed in places such as dashboards and headliners, which LG Display claims will bring "rich 3D Immersive sound experience".

The reason why this panel can be installed in an unconventional position is that its thickness is only 2.5mm, the size is about 150mm x 90mm, and the weight is about 40g.

We could see it as soon as January at CES in Las Vegas.

Toyota turns commercial into a 'horror movie'

This is definitely the most nonsensical car ad I've seen this year.

One dark night, the garden swing was shaking for no reason, the dog was barking, the wooden boards in the hallway creaked, and the drawers and sofas in the house were turned over…

It turned out that the dead father wanted to drive away his beloved pickup.

Apple Apple Music or landing Tesla car system

According to Teslarati, a Model S show car with Apple Music appeared in a recent exhibition held by Tesla. The show car is understood to be running modified firmware rather than the publicly released version.

As early as December 2020, a placeholder music source called "Apple" appeared on Tesla cars, and there was speculation that Tesla's support for Apple Music might be coming soon. But a few months later, the code was revoked, and there has been no news about Tesla's launch of Apple Music since then.

However, Dong Chejun still thinks that the free Bluetooth is more fragrant.

The author is a little busy, so I will write an introduction later.
