Tesla raised the price again with a maximum increase of 21,000 yuan

According to information on Tesla’s official website today, the prices of the domestic Tesla Model 3 and Model Y rear-wheel drive versions have been raised again, rising by 10,000 yuan and 21,000 yuan, respectively, and the current prices are 265,652 yuan and 301,840 yuan, respectively.

The price increase may be related to the decline in subsidies for new energy vehicles in the country next year. In addition, after the price adjustment, the model Y rear-drive version has a price of more than 300,000 yuan, and will no longer enjoy national new energy vehicle subsidies.

Dong Chejun remembers that more than two months ago, Model 3 only sold for more than 230,000. Friends who picked up the car in September made it. Not only did they enjoy it early, but also enjoy discounts.

BMW iX EPA operating range announced

According to InsideEVs, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently announced the EPA operating range of BMW iX xDrive50. Depending on the rim size, the EPA range of the new car is as follows:

  • 20 inches: 521km
  • 21 inches: 491km
  • 22 inches: 507km

The iX xDrive50 is equipped with 111.5kWh battery packs. According to BMW, the energy density of the new battery pack is about 20% higher than that of the previous generation. Judging from the final results, the performance is worthy of recognition.

This is also a 2.5-ton dual-motor four-wheel drive model with a maximum combined power of 516 horsepower.

Zero Running C11 ushered in the second round of OTA upgrades

Zero Running C11 ushered in an OTA upgrade again today. This time it mainly added 9 active safety functions such as LCC lane centering assistance, BSD blind spot monitoring, and LCA lane change warning.

In other respects, the Zero Running C11 has added a new steering wheel and seat heating automatic turn-on function, while adding vehicle control commands and Wi-Fi automatic connection functions, and the map car logo model has also been optimized.

The engineers of Zero Run have been very diligent recently, and it has only been a month since the last push.

The new generation of GLC is exposed, with a new version of the interior

Motor1 recently exposed the interior spy photos of the new generation of Mercedes-Benz GLC. The interior of the new car unsurprisingly adopts a new family language, with a large vertical screen and full LCD instrumentation similar to the S-Class.

The appearance is also quite different from the current model. The exterior rearview mirror has been moved from the A-pillar to the door to provide the driver with a better view when turning left.

There is no accurate news about power, but 1.5T and 2.0T engines may still become the main force, and may be equipped with 48V light hybrid technology.

In addition, the new generation of GLC may also launch PHEV plug-in hybrid models. (Gasgoo)

However, recent GLC's reputation is not very good, and I hope this generation can remedy it.

Tesla responds to “surge in insurance premiums''

Recently, the news that Tesla's insurance premiums soared by 80% has sparked heated discussions.

In response, Tesla responded that according to the latest statistics on December 30, the increase in Tesla vehicle insurance premiums is about 10% on the national average. The national average is less than 20%, and the specific amount is subject to the quotation of the local insurance company.

On December 27, the Shanghai Insurance Exchange officially launched a new energy auto insurance trading platform and launched the first batch of exclusive insurance products for new energy vehicles to provide support for the launch of exclusive insurance products for new energy vehicles.

On the day the platform was launched, a Tesla owner posted a quotation calculated in an insurance company's system, which was more than 6,000 yuan higher than four days ago, an increase of 80%.

Due to the pressure of public opinion, the insurance companies lowered the insurance prices the next day. Friends who bought high-priced insurance on the 27th can surrender the insurance and purchase it again.

Japan will introduce legislation for L4 autonomous vehicles on the road

According to Nikkei News, the Japanese National Police Agency will propose a license system for the use of L4 autonomous vehicles in rural areas.

The bill will be submitted to the National Assembly next spring. If the National Assembly approves it, Japan will realize L4 autonomous vehicles on the roads.

Japanese authorities are considering approving the operation of self-driving buses on designated routes in less populated areas. According to the plan, the county-level public safety committee will be responsible for reviewing the operation plan of autonomous vehicles and formulating licenses.

The pilot operation of autonomous driving in areas with small populations has two advantages. One is that the traffic situation is relatively less complicated, and the other is that it can solve the travel problem of some elderly people with mobility difficulties.

Shell may make up for the loss of power caused by the new fuel for Ferrari

At the power unit level of F1 racing cars in 2022, the biggest change will be the introduction of a new fuel standard-E10 fuel, which is a fossil fuel blended with 10% ethanol.

Ferrari team leader Mattia Binotto predicts that the introduction of the new fuel standard may cause all engine manufacturers to lose about 20 horsepower. At present, Ferrari, Red Bull, Renault and Mercedes are all working hard to recover the motivation of the loss.

According to Motorsport Italy, Shell Oil Company, which has a long-term cooperation with Ferrari, has developed an E10 fuel for Ferrari, allowing it to make up for the loss of 20 horsepower.

Judging from various sources, Ferrari's engine next year seems to be able to compete with Mercedes and Red Bull.

Electric pickup truck based on Mach-E motor

As we all know, the sales volume of Ford's F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck is extremely hot. According to the current production schedule, Ford may not be able to absorb all these orders until 2025.

F-150 Lightning is good, but Dong Chejun still thinks this one is more flavorful.

This 1978 F-100 was very popular at the SEMA show in Las Vegas in November.

But in fact, this is not an ordinary F-100, it is equipped with two motors from Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, with 480 horsepower.

The chassis is a custom chassis from Roadster Shop, and is equipped with aluminum 3-piece custom wheels and Michelin Latitude Sport high-performance tires.

However, this electric pickup truck has also been sold out. It seems that pickup trucks are really not worrying about selling in the United States.
