This morning, Wuling officially announced the official interior image of Wuling Xingchen, the world's first strategic SUV with silver label.
Its interior adopts a new design language. In the central control area, Wuling uses multi-level lines to create a stepped effect, highlighting the three-dimensional sense of the interior. The three-spoke sports steering wheel and the full LCD instrument at the rear are also in line with current trends.
On the seats, Wuling Xingchen uses skin-friendly materials with advanced textures to further enhance the interior texture. At the same time, the wheelbase of the car has reached 2750mm, and the space performance is excellent. It is estimated that it will have a good riding experience.
In the SUV market, Wuling is still competitive.
In the morning, there was Wuling, and in the afternoon, it was at BMW.
This afternoon, the mid-term facelift of the BMW Brilliance X3 was officially launched. A total of 3 models were launched with a price range of RMB 392,800 to RMB 475,800, and the starting price increased slightly by RMB 3,000.

Let's not talk about the car, the name is so good.
New forces in car-making
A few days ago, a set of road test spy photos of the ideal X01 were exposed. As a brand-new SUV model under the brand, the new car will have a higher positioning than the ideal ONE.
Since this is only a test car, many exterior details have not been shown. However, it can be seen that the new car still adopts the classic family design language, but it is not equipped with a wide air intake grille similar to the ideal ONE.
According to previous news, Ideal Motors is developing a new X platform. The Ideal X01, which will be launched next year, is based on this platform and is equipped with the ideal car's new-generation extended range power system.
Compared with Ideal ONE’s 1.2T three-cylinder engine, the ideal new-generation extended range power system is expected to include a 1.5T four-cylinder Miller cycle extender, and the WLTC has a cruising range of over 800km.

The interior of this X01 also seems to be more conventional.
According to Teslaati, Tesla's first R&D center outside the United States is nearing completion.
As the Shanghai R&D center is ready to be put into operation, the R&D project of Tesla's entry-level model is getting closer and closer to production.
Currently, the R&D center is still hiring, offering positions in automotive design, automotive software, hardware design engineering, materials engineering, powertrain/energy engineering, R&D engineering operations, and automotive engineering.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Tesla China has completed this highly anticipated prototype of the "affordable Tesla". If you want to learn about this car, it will go down.
Musk: It would be a "cool" thing to be able to design electric cars in China.
Continue to break the news of "Affordable Tesla": Designed and manufactured in China, priced at 160,000 yuan
Today’s news, according to foreign media MSPoweruser reports, Tesla is developing a new model with a lower price. Tom Zhu, president of Tesla's China operations, recently confirmed the news.
It is expected that the car will be a hatchback, specifically designed for the Chinese market, but will still be sold globally, and the price of the new car is expected to be as low as 160,000.
This is the first time for Tesla to design and manufacture in China. "Vehicle design, vehicle engineering, vehicle development and vehicle testing will all be carried out in the new factory." Tom Zhu said.
In addition, a car blogger @不郑小康 said that Tesla plans to start trial production at the end of this year.
160,000, will it "drop again and again" later?
Tesla's July wholesale sales exceeded 30,000, with cumulative sales exceeding 200,000
According to China's auto sales data released by the Passenger Association recently, Tesla's wholesale sales reached 32,968 vehicles in July, an increase of 199% year-on-year. As of July, Tesla has sold more than 200,000 vehicles, reaching 205,763 vehicles.

The Shanghai Gigafactory's strategic position in Tesla's global layout has become more and more important.
The crossroads of “oil and electricity''
Recently, Lamborghini released a new car preview on its official website and indicated that the new Countach is coming soon.
The new car models will use a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a naturally aspirated V12 engine and an electric motor, and will also use the same supercapacitor technology as the Sián FKP 37.
Although we can't see the full picture of this model at present, we can find from the official trailer that the new Countach will adopt a wedge-shaped body posture, and it is precisely because of this that Countach has become a legend in the minds of car fans.
According to the information exposed on the Internet, the car will be named after LPI 800-4.
The letter I represents "Ibrido (hybrid)" in Lamborghini's naming system, while the number 800 represents that the car will have 800 horsepower, and the number 4 indicates that it will adopt a four-wheel drive form. (Via electric state)
Under the trend of electrification, how will Lamborghini reinterpret classic models?
The Dong Chehui official learned from BYD that the first model of BYD's e-platform 3.0 "Dolphin" will officially start pre-sale on August 13.
This model adopts the design language of "Marine Aesthetics", designed by a team led by Wolfgang Iger, and is positioned as a small pure electric model.
On the body of the "Dolphin", there is a set of sharp "Z"-shaped lines, which enrich the body design while creating a dynamic and sharp temperament. In addition, the front and rear surrounds also use a corresponding appearance kit, and there are a variety of colors to choose from.
At the same time, the new car also has many design highlights in the interior. Whether it is the steering wheel, air-conditioning vents, or the overall design of the central control area, they all conform to the design language of "ocean aesthetics", looking young and lively, but not frivolous.
On the whole, its interior layout is still dominated by compactness and simplicity, taking into account space and function.
According to Motor1 reports, Audi may release an electric SUV exclusively for the Chinese market in the next 6 to 9 months.
In April of this year, Audi released the Concept Shanghai, a pure electric SUV concept car at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. The car is built on the Volkswagen Group MEB platform, with a length of 4.87 meters, or shares a large number of parts with Volkswagen ID.6.
According to the latest spy photos, the car is equipped with all the necessary elements of a production car, and its appearance is very similar to the concept car unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show.
It is worth mentioning that the interior does not cover any camouflage. As you can see from the photos, the seats in the car are made of leather with white stitching. In addition, the design of the sports steering wheel, LCD instrumentation, and central control screen is at a glance.
In terms of power and endurance, it is expected that the power and endurance of the car will be close to the Volkswagen ID.6.
This interior cannot be said to be exactly the same as the Audi Q4 E-Tron, it can only be said to be exactly the same.
Castrol UK yesterday announced the launch of a new brand of Castrol ON for advanced fluids for electric vehicles (EV). This series includes electronic transmission oil, electronic coolant and electronic grease.
Among them, the electronic transmission oil helps to extend the service life of the power transmission system and increase the cruising range of electric vehicles. Electronic coolant improves thermal management and keeps the battery cool even under extreme conditions so that it can withstand fast charging.
Electronic grease can minimize temperature peaks, improve component durability, while reducing weight, enabling electric vehicles to operate more efficiently.
In addition to the advanced e-Fluids series suitable for "first filling" applications, Castrol has also developed an electronic oil Castrol ON e-Transmission Fluid E1 for workshops, which will be provided to BYD's workshops in China in 2021. (Via Gasgoo)
"Special oil for electric vehicles" is here.
Yesterday, Infineon launched a new MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) scanner solution, which consists of a MEMS rearview mirror and a MEMS driver, which can realize a new product design.
This solution is extremely small in size and low in power consumption, which enables augmented reality (AR) solutions to be more widely used in consumer applications, such as wearable devices and automotive head-up displays (HUD).
This system can completely project valuable information on the windshield of the car, instead of covering only a small area in front of the driver, which can better improve driving safety and convenience. (Via Gasgoo)
It smells like science fiction movies.
Ads are better than movies
If there is any benefit to epidemic isolation, it is that it stimulates people's creativity.
Recently, American film producer Logan McNay used CG to produce this commercial for Porsche cars. It was completely done by himself, except for the sound design.
My idea is to show the whole process of a Porsche from concept to completion, at every stage, from the initial clay construction, to the grinding test, collision, flipping, freezing, heating, and finally racing on the test track.
Logan McNay said: "For me, every movement of the car is coordinated with the ups and downs of the violin music, which is very important."
I like to see how things are designed, and I know how hard it is to make a quality product, so as a goal, I want to pay more attention to the process of making things instead of how they look and drive like most car advertisements. cool.
According to McNay, the entire project was made using 3ds max and Vray CG, and it took 6 months to complete the simulation of animation, smoke and water, and to create a 3D environment from scratch, and the rendering time exceeded 250 hours.
The simulation of smoke and water is the biggest challenge in completing this project.
