Like the previously exposed information, this time they released a total of three new cars, namely Model C, Model E and Model T.
Among them, Model C is positioned as a pure electric mid-size SUV and provides a 5+2 seat layout. It is reported that the maximum power of the new car will reach 400 horsepower, and the endurance can reach 700km.
Model E is in the style of a coupe. Its styling was developed jointly with the Italian design company Pininfarna, and its drag coefficient is only 0.22Cd.

Seeing this naming, I don't know what Musk will think.
Four months after the launch of the new Model S, the new Model X finally began to be delivered.
According to reports, the first batch of new models have been delivered at the Fremont, California plant. The new cars use the same new interior as the Model S, and the Yoke steering wheel is not absent. The overall sense of technology is stronger.
Currently, Tesla Model X has not yet been mass-produced in China. The imported dual-motor all-wheel long-endurance version and the three-motor all-wheel drive Plaid version are priced at 909,900 yuan and 999.99 million yuan respectively. (IT House)
Dong Chejun is greedy for this Yoke steering wheel.
The Beijing plant of Ideal Motors starts construction and will be put into production at the end of 2023
Ideal Motors announced a few days ago that the green smart factory in Shunyi District of Beijing has officially started construction. In the future, a considerable part of Ideal Motors' output will come from the new factory.
Ideally, the Beijing Green Smart Factory will adopt the latest domestic environmentally friendly production technology to minimize the impact on the environment.
In addition, the official said that Ideal Auto is focusing on the development of pure electric vehicles with super fast charging capabilities. Two high-voltage pure electric vehicle platforms, Whale and Shark, are under development. (Netcom)
According to the plan, the new plant will be put into operation at the end of 2023, with an estimated annual production capacity of 250,000 vehicles.
FF has completed the installation of the quasi-production car production line and will be delivered in July next year

Matt Tall, vice president of manufacturing at FF said. (Quick Technology)
It is another "reassurance pill."
Today, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover is officially launched, with a price range of RMB 1.225 million to RMB 3.213 million.
The new car is mainly adjusted for the configuration. Among them, the extended classic version has been handed down with 22-inch 5-spoke silver aluminum alloy wheels, which further strengthens the appearance of the flagship model.

The number 4 symbolizes individuality and sport in the BMW family, this time the new BMW X4 proves this again.
An interesting thing happened recently:
Tesla CEO Elon Musk actually appeared at the executive meeting of the Volkswagen Group.
In this executive meeting, Volkswagen CEO Herbert Dis invited Musk as a "surprise guest." The latter spoke to 200 Volkswagen executives through video calls on the direction of Volkswagen’s transformation, management style, and supply. Addressing 200 Volkswagen executives on chain and production issues.
Diss said that he believes that the public needs faster decision-making and less bureaucracy in order to achieve what he calls the largest transformation in the history of the public. (Sina Finance)
Tesla's Berlin factory will force local industry to increase competition with the fast-growing American electric car manufacturer.
However, recently, as the supply of new cars in the market is tight, the price of some second-hand car bodies in Shanghai has risen sharply, and there are even many models of second-hand quasi-new cars that can be sold at new car prices.
On a used car website, a 2020 Mercedes-Benz E300 with a mileage of more than 26,000 kilometers is priced at more than 430,000 yuan, which is higher than the starting price of a new car.
A dealer said that high-end second-hand cars BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi’s hot-selling models are almost sold one by one, and there are almost no discounts. There are no second-hand cars to buy in the Porsche market.
The situation of second-hand new energy vehicles is more embarrassing, and car dealers are afraid of falling into their hands.
Tesla launched a "scoring system" auto insurance, with the lowest 40% off the price of auto insurance
Recently, according to foreign media reports, Tesla's UBI auto insurance was officially launched in Texas, USA.
The price of traditional auto insurance is calculated by the insurance company based on the pricing of the vehicle model and the age of the owner. The UBI (usage-based-insurance) auto insurance launched by Tesla this time calculates the rate based on the vehicle's use time, mileage, and real-time driving behavior of the driver.
According to the new calculation method, Tesla's auto insurance pricing can be 30%-40% lower than the current auto insurance.
But Tesla's insurance business may not be able to develop in China in the short term. According to domestic regulatory authorities, Tesla needs to obtain an insurance license to launch insurance business. (New trip)
However, Tesla seems to be interested in developing insurance business in China, having established an insurance brokerage company in August last year.
Honda (Honda)-since the 1950s, one of the most well-known internal combustion engine car manufacturers.
However, popularity is the biggest illusion of ability in this era.
Although Honda has bothered to pack old fuel vehicles into brand-new electric vehicles, the new generation of consumers who have received in-depth education in new car-building forces obviously do not buy it.
Time to enter 2021-this is generally defined by the industry as a "critical moment in the second half of the global electric vehicle battle."
Faced with many tests, on October 13, Honda held an electrification strategy conference for the Chinese market. The conference was heavy, but the content was very shallow.
- After 2030, the introduction of fuel vehicles in China will be stopped, but the ratio of pure electric and hybrid vehicles is unclear, and they are collectively referred to as "electric vehicles";
- Announced the new electric brand "e:N" and released three concept cars, which are essentially small cars, large cars, and SUVs that almost every car company will launch;
- Two electric vehicles launched in the spring of next year: Dongfeng Honda e: NS1 and Guangqi Honda e: NP1, with a maximum cruising range of more than 500 kilometers, this result can only be considered a barely pass even this year.
The bad opponents are growing wildly, and a thunderstorm enough to capsize a big ship creates danger invisibly. But Honda was immersed in the joy of having just released the three concept cars and didn't notice it. (Interface News)
According to foreign media reports, Hyundai Motor recently launched the third "Re:Style" event. This is a fashion project that uses materials discarded in the car manufacturing process for upgrading and reuse, demonstrating the company's pioneering power in sustainable development beyond the automotive industry.
This year's Re:Style uses materials left over from the car manufacturing process, such as airbags and seat belts. In addition, environmentally friendly materials used in modern IONIQ 5, such as Bio PET and recycled fibers, are also used.
Thomas Schemera, Global Chief Marketing Officer of Hyundai Motor, said:
We hope that this project can become the focus of young consumers around the world, helping to understand the environmental impact of surplus materials and how to reuse them creatively and practically.
Dong Chejun remembered the clothes and school bags made of used airbags that he shared with everyone before.
Ricardo will drive the legendary NASCAR race car
McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo will drive his idol during the American Grand Prix this weekend, and American NASCAR legend Dale Inhardt’s 1984 Wrangler Chevrolet will drive onto the COTA circuit.
Ricardo made a bet with McLaren Racing CEO Zac Brown: If he can represent McLaren Racing on the podium this season, then he can test drive his idol’s NASCAR car.
With Ricardo's victory in Italy, Zac Brown finally fulfilled his promise.
Also because of a bet, Ricardo added a tattoo to the Renault team leader last year.
What is i4 M50?
The first thing to know is that BMW offers two i4s: the single-motor i4 eDrive40, which can provide 335 horsepower and a cruising range of 480 kilometers.
Today’s protagonist is another version-i4 M50. It is equipped with two motors, the total output power is 536 horsepower, and the cruising range is also discounted to 440 kilometers.
In short, this is an acclaimed electric BMW. BMW has made the i4 M50 "sporty and sustainable."
Its ride quality is very good, it makes no secret of its weight (far more than two tons), but you know this car is very powerful. BMW claims that it can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds, but in fact, it is faster and only takes 3.5 seconds.
However, the excessive weight still has a bad effect in the corner-understeer. Although for most people, the i4 M50 is very sporty, if compared with Model 3 Performance, it will be better, but it is still not comparable to M3. (Motortrend)
In the last issue, our topic was how to pass the time when charging an electric car.
I feel that charging is fast, and I am in a daze while playing with my mobile phone, and time has passed.
Sure enough, do all the men in the world like to be in a daze? Dong Chejun usually likes to be in a daze, but when I charge the car, it is usually the landlord.
During the weekend, a colleague complained to me that after I bought the car, I regretted the original choice and felt that this was not the car I wanted.
what about you? If you were given a chance to start again, which car would you buy?
